"Merry Go"

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.

"Old Road"

Instruments: Double reed, Percussion

Feel: Driving, Suspenseful

This music is the introduction to your characters entering a Middle Eastern village for the first time. The tribal drumming is all hustle and bustle, while the melody is winding, forceful, and unfamiliar.

"Ujangong Mix"

Instruments: Voice, Bass, Guitar, Kit

Feel: Dark, Driving, Grooving, Intense, Unnerving

An epic clash of genre that feigns coherence. Based on the Public Domain 1904 recording of "Ujangong (Mask Dance)" from New Guinea. But with a swing bass and slicing techno chunk in 3/4 time.

"Classic Horror 2"

Instruments: Piano

Feel: Dark, Mysterious, Unnerving

5/8 time gives this piano solo a really unsettling feel. It uses more of the range of the piano, and can be chopped up to suit scenes well.
