"Western Streets"

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.

"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.

"Passing Action"

Instruments: Bass, Percussion, Strings

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.

"Darkening Developments"

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.

"Phantasm"

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.
