"Darkest Child"

Instruments: Harp, Celesta, Cellos, Basses

Feel: Dark, Eerie, Unnerving

A childlike celeste plays high notes among a barely audible harp and deep bass. In the second minute the disturbing melody is in a lower register, and strings accentuate the discordant sounds before returning to the high register. The music is excellent for a creepy dream sequence or the exposition of an unknown fantasy world. SMARTSOUND

"Constancy Part Two"

Instruments: Strings, Chimes, Tympani, Flute, Bass Clarinet, Bassoon, Oboe

Feel: Dark, Epic, Intense, Suspenseful

Full of rhythmic strings and woodwinds in the lower registers, the high pitched violin that edges in and out of tune is unnerving and eerie. The pounding bass drums and church bells ring throughout, a symbol of impending doom. This music draws the line between being beautiful and frighteningly dystopian.

"Constancy Part One"

Instruments: Strings, Chimes, Glock, Bassoon, Bass Clarinet

Feel: Dark, Driving, Intense, Suspenseful

A rapid piece full of alternating strings and bassoons, with long and drastic bass notes. The heavy funereal chimes and foreboding minor key evoke a scene of a frantic chase through the woods or a race against time.

"Sneaky Snitch"

Instruments: Oboe, Strings, Snare Drum

Feel: Bouncy, Dark, Humorous, Mysterious

An oboe and a snare drum dance a tantalizing number with the whimsical plucks of a string quartet. The staccato nature of the music suggests walking on tiptoes, while the nasal notes of the oboe flits about almost imperceptibly. In the final minute, the string quartet plays a simple rhythm, before the oboe and snare drum crescendo to the finale.

"Not As It Seems"

Instruments: Oboe, Harp, Horns, Tuba, Percussion

Feel: Eerie, Mystical, Suspenseful

A quizzical harp and bell introduction transports you to a mysterious land of magic as bouncing horns and pounding bass drums signify peril. In the last twenty seconds an orchestra takes over and the intensity rises, leaving the scene in danger?s hands.
