"Simplex"

Instruments: Percussion, Synth, Guitar

Feel: Dark, Suspenseful, Unnerving

Thin, dark, moody piece that accelerates to the end. Remarkably metered and free at the same time. Guitar is all half muted.

"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.

"At The Shore"

Instruments: French Horn, Choir, Percussion

Feel: Bright, Calming

A mixture of African vocal chants and Caribbean-styled percussion and bass guitar makes you long for your hammock. The piece is relaxing and gets you in the mood for ?Island Time? - where the troubles of the world melt away in the ocean breeze.

"Honey Bee"

Instruments: EP, Bass, Percussion, Horns

Feel: Bouncy, Bright

The electric piano alternates between playing the rhythm and creating a sliding melody, while trumpets sound in the background, sometimes stealing the melody. The percussion makes for a toe-tapping good time. This is useful for the closing segment of a TV show, game, or transition. Cleanly loopable.

"Merry Go - Distressed"

Instruments: Piano

Feel: Bouncy, Bright, Humorous

Comedic and playful, this rag-time ditty has a strong melody, and is heavy in the bass chords. The second minute features flighty finger-work, as if an energetic bee is flying up and down the scales. The last thirty seconds is a refrain of the introduction, and the piece ends with an invigorating flourish.
