"Thunder Dreams"

Instruments: Synths

Feel: Dark, Mysterious, Suspenseful, Unnerving

This is more of a chordal soundscape than a drone. There is a little bit of hope here and there, but it is tempered with a deep sadness. Probably useful after a loss. Beautiful, horrible.

"Ice Demon"

Instruments: Synths

Feel: Dark, Eerie, Mysterious, Unnerving

Hollow creepy background pad. This is not the feel-good hit of the summer. It is more like the cheese-grater to the brain of uncomfortableness.

"Controlled Chaos - no percussion"

Instruments: Synths

Feel: Dark, Mysterious, Mystical, Suspenseful, Unnerving

Dark background drone made with the new SkannerXT synth. It is a new kind of synthesis that I'm just getting into. Kinda freaky.

"Satiate - only percussion"

Instruments: Percussion

Feel: Dark, Mysterious, Unnerving

Highly effected percussion piece at a mid tempo. This track was extracted from a larger work, but will lend some motion and reserved immediacy to any scene.

"Satiate - only strings"

Instruments: Strings

Feel: Dark, Intense, Suspenseful, Unnerving

I piece unlike anything I've done, this is a very difficult piece to process emotionally. It just never lets the audience rest. There are a lot of uses for this sort of piece. It is also available with percussion, which gives it a more immediacy.

Instruments: Strings, Percussion

Feel: Dark, Intense, Relaxed, Suspenseful, Unnerving

I piece unlike anything I've done, this is a very difficult piece to process emotionally. It just never lets the audience rest. There are a lot of uses for this sort of piece. It is also available with just the percussion, and just the strings... both of which are quite different from the combined.

Might be soundtrack, might be unclassifiable... pieces like this, I just can't ever tell. Nothing tricksy going on here - just forward motion.
