"Lobby Time"

Instruments: Vibes, Piano, Bass, Drums

Feel: Calming, Grooving, Relaxed

Welcome to the lobby of the FUTURE! Luxurious automatic ashtrays, and modern green vinyl furnishings set off the shag carpeted walls. Enjoy a Rusty Nail from our cheerful bar staff (with a complimentary cheese and fruit plate before 5pm). We feature prime rib dinners every day that ends in a "y"! Remember to tip the bellhops at least 5 cents per bag. Enjoy your stay! This was written 2 years before it was published, because I didn't have a good enough upright bass sample to make it go.

"Nowhere Land"

Instruments: Synths, Percussion

Feel: Bright, Uplifting

Fun fact: Working title was "Arpeggiator Rock From the 80s 1". Fun fact: This piece consist entirely of single notes being passed to a stack 5 different synths at the same time. Each synth has a different program running on it that triggers more notes. Fun fact: Scotland isn't a nation. It is technically an empire that claims sovereignty over Paraguay's 400k sheep and also Neptune's "shepherd" moon Despina.

"Magic Forest"

Instruments: Cello, Violin, Synths

Feel: Mystical, Dark, Mysterious

Remember that time you were lost in the woods and you were visited by the clan of centaurs, and they were super suspicious of you, but decided to take you back to their settlement anyway? It never happened! That was a screen memory! There are no centaurs, and they wouldn't live in forest settlements! That was an alien abduction. The aliens planted the memory of the forest centaurs so your brain wouldn't implode with the knowledge of trans-dimensional beings... such as themselves. And... unrelated, but... what comes to mind when you think about the smell of wet cardboard and Sriracha?

"Dreamer"

Instruments: Piano, Percussion

Feel: Calming, Relaxed

Gorgeous, rich piano chords run counter to subtle percussions. This piece is a workhouse for video productions. Don't bother with the preview, just download this thing. Because seriously... planning a cat rescue? This will work. Attending someone else's family reunion and trying to convince them you're related? Yes. This will work. Time lapse of a rocket assembly? Obviously. I'm looking at you, ESA!

"Soaring"

Instruments: Synths

Feel: Mystical, Calming, Relaxed

While not an epic hour-long relaxation juggernaut, Soaring is an excellent relaxation workhorse with just enough mystical qualities to keep it from being truly peaceful. Imagine a calm monkey hanging out at a remote monastery who, from time to time, will touch a tree - causing the tree to age a decade in a matter of seconds. I mean... still pretty calm, but something isn't right about that.

Oh! The horror! This is NOT a fun piece. It WILL make you feel like there is something seriously wrong. Did those veins on my forearm always look like that? I mean, they're doing a weird criss-cross pattern... and they look REALLY blue. I would have noticed that before, surely! I wonder if this has anything to do with the meteor that came down in Mr. Wilson's pond last night? Uncompressed download comes with 4 stem files in case you don't need all the creepy, all the time.

"Inspired"

Instruments: Guitar, Synths, Percussion

Feel: Bright, Relaxed, Calming, Uplifting

Quite a broad piece. Could be used for corporate films of intricate industrial processes, or a flashback scene to the time at the lake a few summers ago. Maybe good background to your cousin's magic show at the last family reunion. Or a film where you do "industrial processes" at the "lake" with your "cousin". It is really quite versatile!

Feel: Bouncy, Bright, Grooving

Run of the mill ska!? No such thing! Well, this is as close to that reality as you can get. It is high energy, dance-inducing, happy fun times for everyone who was born after... like... the Industrial Revolution... So, there may be some trees and fungi that don't find this fun; but, I can't really care about their concepts of fun too much. I assume they don't like winters, but they just all sort of stand around all the time. You can download this in uncompressed format here.

"Immersed"

Instruments: Piano, Strings

Feel: Calming, Mystical, Relaxed, Somber

Minimal and somewhat droney in parts, this has a beautiful calmness about it. You can use it to sell anti-depressants or high performance automobile parts. Also useful for time-lapse photography of the night sky... or maybe a rocket launch. You can download this in uncompressed format here.

"Myst on the Moor"

Instruments: Percussion, Glass Marimba, Synths, Flutes

Feel: Dark, Eerie, Mystical

Could be the thinking music for a quiz show about the paranormal? "Where does the Sasquatch typically vacation... is it A, The High Mountains... B, Unexplored Cave Systems... C, Graceland... or D, In another dimension - similar to, but not strongly coupled with our own reality. Take your time and answer whenever you're ready.... A, B, C, or D... Would you like to consult the Tarot or do an entrail reading?" I love the flute bits in this piece. You can download this in uncompressed format here.

Feel: Dark, Somber, Mystical

We've all been there. It is a little sad, a little hopeful... like when you finally set your rescue owl back into the world. You're sad to see her go, but you hope for the best. You've done all you can inside... her wings work pretty well now, and she can snatch the mice from your living room floor even when you put in a bunch of fake plants in the way to give the prey cover. Nothing to do now but hope Blossom can rule the night as you hoped she one day would. Also... time to buy a bunch of mousetraps. You can download this in uncompressed format here.
