The good news is, you can take as long as you want to answer the final million dollar question! The bad news is that you have to listen to the synth horns until you're done.
Instruments: Guitar, Lute
Feel: Calm, Relaxed
Gather 'round the tavern's fire and I will share a tale for as long as I have ale. Hah! "Tale and ale!" I'm not guaranteeing rhymes, though. That was a coincidence. I was playing lute for an uninterested group of tavern-goers, when all of a sudden, I remembered that I had a sandwich for lunch! It looks like I'm out of ale, so that is the end of my tale.

Instruments: Drums, Bass, Organ, Synth, Guitar
Feel: Bouncy, Grooving, Humorous
This has a couple funny-sounding synths and plenty of whitespace. As a note to YouTube "producers"; 10 hours of this piece would be pretty mean. 1 hour of this piece isn't much better. For the sake of mankind, please do not make extended mixes of this piece. I can not be held responsible for mental anguish caused by repeated listening.
Instruments: Synths, Percussion
Feel: Bouncy, Bright
When will it end!!?? When will it all end!!?? Honestly... probably never. This piece just keeps modulating. Up a half step every time. Didn't go long enough? Just loop it! It is your own sanity you're toying with.

"Truth in the Stones"
Instruments: Drums, Harp
Feel: Calming, Grooving, Mystical
New age music. You know what is cool about New Age music? Low ambitions. It wants to do a simple thing, and then does it. No crazy counterpoint. No complicated harmonic structures. Just a simple simple thing. Like if Tetris was all those long blocks. Man, that would be great.
Instruments: Cellos, Basses, Violas, Violins, Choir, Flutes, Clarinets
Feel: Relaxed, Bright, Calming
A different kind of relaxing piece with long but detailed harmonic complexity. I personally have a hard time with the drone-type of relaxing music. It doesn't work for me. This one gives your mind something to think about... very very slowly.
Instruments: Synths, Rain
Feel: Bright, Calming, Relaxed
The smell of a garden hose, that muted crack when you start up a glowstick, watching the sunrise with a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice... all so calming... This piece of music is like that. Simple, bleeping, and slowly changing. Can you think of something else that is simple, bleeping, and changing? "an old PC speaker?" well, that's simple and bleeping. "EDM?" that's... bleeping and changing. "Hippie fashion?" that's... Hippie fashion? I don't know what that is. Well, it is long hair and paisley bell-bottoms and far too many beads... You just found the outside of the Venn Diagram.
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.
Instruments: Basses, Cellos, War Horn, Brass, Percussion, Choir
Feel: Aggressive, Driving, Dark
Formerly titled "Tyranid Battle Loop", this piece was written for down and dirty... and very very long battle scenes for space bug critters. But you can use it for anything you like! Got a video where you stuck a cucumber on a drone to terrorize your cat? Boom! Corruption. Or those really gross films of people removing cysts? ug. don't use this for that. Actually, why are you posting that? Don't do it. Just... ug. can't unsee... You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.

This epic 41-minute relaxing juggernaut is a continually changing yet always pleasant piece. How pleasant? Very, very pleasant.

What do you get when you cross some 8-bit music technology with Dixieland music? Well... you get stuff that sounds like this. The uncompressed download comes with a pile of extra stuff, like versions at 220, 230, 240, and a whopping 275 beats per minute! That's really fast. It also has loops that don't go through the modulation so you can repeat them as long as you'd like! You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.
