"Eastminster"

Instruments: Plucked Strings, Synths

Feel: Calming, Relaxed

The constant reverberating sound of rain and the perfect-fifth drone of the strings are calming, but have an air of suspense and tension about them, as if a drama is about to unfold. The koto plays a near continuous refrain, at times forcefully. Evoking pre-colonialist East Asia, the piece is beautiful and stoic in tone, especially as the koto asserts its dominance in the sixth minute and at the end.

"Finding the Balance"

Instruments: Bass, Percussion, Synths, Voice

Feel: Bright, Grooving, Intense

The beginning is calm with the Middle Eastern dudek playing the melody. As the electronic elements melt into the dudek and the plucked strings, the groove is established. Just into the third minute the melody changes to beautiful and touching, but returns to the feel of the intro, while a woman?s voice sings a haunting melody in a distant language. This is music of wonder, and is best as exposition music for a film about nature or a group of people struggling to survive.

"Spider Eyes"

Instruments: Bells, Affected Piano, Strings

Feel: Dark, Eerie, Mysterious, Suspenseful, Unnerving

Spider Eyes is an eerie soundscape created with distant high strings, dissonant non-percussive piano textures, and alternately tuned bells. This piece features much sustain and space.

"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.

"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.

Background horror music. Symphonic with some digital processing. Some tremolo basses in the beginning are meant to be removed and integrated on their own.
