"Hero Down"

Instruments: Strings, French Horn, Trombones, Percussion, Flute

Feel: Epic, Intense, Somber

A piece in three or four parts... depending on how you count parts. The penultimate section features a lonely flute, slowly joined by a children's choir, and finally exploding into a giant choral and orchestral ending.
From the original soundtrack to "The Last Stand of the Mechanolith".

"Unlight"

Instruments: Basses, Cellos, Violins, Trombone, French Horn, Trumpets, Flutes, Clarinets, Percussion

Feel: Aggressive, Dark, Eerie, Epic, Intense, Unnerving

This piece is actively painful. It is ugly and nasty and dirty - about as much as you can be using exactly one orchestra. Seriously, there are occasional bits where there are notes - but mostly, it is just... uhh...

"The Snow Queen"

Instruments: Strings, Bassoon, Bass Clarinet, Flute, Celesta, Tympani

Feel: Mysterious, Mystical

Sort of exciting and sort of spooky in that fairy tale sort of way. This is one of my favorite pieces of late. Good interplay of instruments. You can listen to this one over and over. Handy, because it does loop back to the beginning. Major build starting at 1:50 or so.

"The Path of the Goblin King v2"

Instruments: Strings, Flute, Clarinet, Oboe, Celesta, Tympani

Feel: Dark, Intense, Mysterious

Slightly faster version of the other similarly named piece, this one has an extra sense of urgency, but still retains the mystery and wonder bits.

"The Path of the Goblin King"

Instruments: Strings, Flute, Clarinet, Oboe, Celesta, Tympani

Feel: Mysterious, Relaxed

This is sort of "Spooky Light". It is dark yet playful in a sense. Good for fairy tales or light tension building. It has several small arcs in it - but loops back to the begging.

"Our Story Begins"

Instruments: Winds, Strings, Brass, Percussion, Choir

Feel: Epic, Suspenseful, Uplifting

Interesting 3/4 feel with an accelerando near the end. 5-note groupings pass from the winds to the strings for a while, and the winds come back at the end in a nifty way.

Loping dissonant loopable atmospheric. Same as Chee Vee Caves, but without the brass.

"Constance"

Instruments: Marimba, Xylophone, Basses, Percussion, Synths

Feel: Action, Dark, Epic, Intense, Mysterious, Suspenseful

A low-level intensity burn to underscore a tense situation of some sort. Actually, this will make any scene tense - like it or not.
