Instruments: Snare, Tenor drum, Tympani, Chimes, Gong
Feel: Dark, Suspenseful, Unnerving
An all percussion tension-sustaining piece... More chaotic than symmetric, but enough repeated themes to keep it cohesive.
Instruments: Choirs, Flutes, Celesta, Glock
Feel: Eerie, Epic, Mysterious, Mystical, Unnerving, Uplifting
Many choirs in a slow-moving ethereal progression.
|Land of the Dead
"Land of the Dead"
Instruments: Choirs, synth
Feel: Dark, Mysterious, Unnerving
A background pad full of human souls. A cacophony of choirs run in counter directions. This is very unpleasant to listen to at volume.
This piece of music is available in an uncompressed format here.
Feel: Dark, Epic, Unnerving
Slow moving, and moog-like.
Instruments: Flutes, Guitar, Basses, Glock, Marimba, Strings, Brass

Starts unnerving; ends calming.

Feel: Dark, Unnerving
This short piece is the accompaniment for the hero surreptitiously breaking into a corporation or headquarters. The reverberating congas, triangle, and synthesized percussion enhance the senses, while the bass guitar provides a strong groove. The strings raise in pitch, evoking a sense of building tension. High-pitched crescendo of strings at 0:45 is the climax of the suspense.
Instruments: Percussion, Synth Bass, Bass section, Oboe, Bassoon, Clarinet, Piccolo
Feel: Dark, Eerie, Intense, Mysterious, Unnerving
Bass is very VERY strong in this. Please make sure you master on a system capable of reproducing these notes. The end feel is decided different from the rest of the piece. It does an unnerving build to nowhere.
Instruments: Vibes, Bass, Percussion, Sax, Trumpet
Feel: Grooving, Unnerving
Filtered vibe and horns play against a relentless bass and percussion section.
|Dragon and Toast
"Dragon and Toast"
Instruments: Didge, Harp, Celesta, Bass, Cello, Violin, Bassoon, Conta Bassoon, English Horn, Oboe, Percussion
Feel: Dark, Eerie, Intense, Mystical, Unnerving
Instruments: Singing Bowls, Percussion
Feel: Dark, Eerie, Mysterious, Unnerving
A Tibetan atmospheric that is a mix of rhythmic and arhythmic sounds.
Instruments: Bells, Dulcimer, Synth, English Horn, Percussion, Flute
Feel: Dark, Eerie, Mysterious, Somber, Unnerving
This piece stars a super-low bass line that physically unnerves. The bells and other melodies offer enough complexity to offset the simple repetitive lines.
