Instruments: Marimba, Bells, Percussion, Synths
Feel: Grooving, Driving, Mysterious
2am. It is raining and there is a line outside the noodle place. A dim red glow comes up from the next staircase down; you hear a hypnotic pulse. Looking down, you see there's a propped-open door with a couple smoking outside it. "Ethernight Club" is laser cut into a piece of old roofing metal. If you walk down the stairs to "Ethernight Club"", turn to page 13. If you decide to get noodles at ????, turn to page 42.
|Le Grand Chase
"Le Grand Chase"
Instruments: Piano, Percussion, Xylophone, Bari Sax, Tuba, Trumpet, Car Horns
Feel: Action, Bouncy, Humorous
You never notice how effective a car horn is until you use it. I usually park my car near a sidewalk and alarm 7 year olds on their way to and from school. 7 year olds are your target market for this sort of thing. They jump like antelope! All the kids in my neighborhood are acclimatized, now. It isn't as much fun. You also never notice how effective a Picardy third is until you do it with car horns. You're welcome.

|River of Io
"River of Io"
Instruments: Flute, Clarinet, Strings, Percussion
Feel: Driving, Mysterious, Suspenseful
I would like to state, for the record, that this is the worst river cruise I've ever taken. The zombie crocodiles were bad enough, but the chase for the stolen artifact statue that was taken by the Ice Monkey Lord was really quite too much. And now I'm missing my left shoe. So why are we up sneaking around UFO landing sites? NONE OF THIS MAKES ANY SENSE!!! You got some clandestine stuff going on? This track will probably work for any sneakiness anywhere.
Instruments: Percussion, Basses, Horns
Feel: Action, Aggressive, Driving, Epic, Grooving, Intense
Fight scenes and chase scenes. Also good for high energy magic shows.
This piece of music is available in an uncompressed format here.
|Constancy Part One
"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.
|When The Wind Blows
"When The Wind Blows"
Instruments: Guitar, Synths
Feel: Calming, Somber
Several wind instruments play lilting melodies that are slow and meander through the piece, sometimes bordering on being slightly out of tune. The calm music has an edge of solemnity about it. The ever-present acoustic guitar is methodical and resembles a pulse ? it exists but is forgotten, except when the guitar draws out the length of a note.
Instruments: Brass, Percussion, Strings, Synths
Feel: Action, Dark, Eerie, Epic, Intense, Suspenseful
The first two minutes contain many changes and shifts in tone - all intense. The final minute is a collection of all that came before, ending in a pulse-quickening finale. This is music for an action film, or a scene that begins with tremulous anxiety and ends in a big way.
|Mistake the Getaway
"Mistake the Getaway"
Instruments: Brass, Strings, Kit, Percussion
Feel: Action, Driving, Epic, Intense, Suspenseful
The chase begins with horn blasts, and the kit plays a solid beat while the bass strings are a pulsing drone below the horn melody. The piece grows more tense and emotional, the strings taking the lead and rise into a flowing intensity. Danger returns in full force as the music crescendos and return for one final push.
