"We Got Trouble"

Instruments:

Feel: Dark, Epic, Action

Super action, but still a bit restrained. Quite a long cue with a few changes on the inside.

"Long Stroll"

Instruments: Brushed Kit, Trumpet, Bass, Piano

Feel: Relaxed, Bouncy, Humorous

Not sure what this is... Reminds me of a 1940's film... maybe a musical? Jazz combo with Fluglehorn, EP improv in the middle.

"Long Time Coming"

Instruments: Electronic, Synth

Feel: Driving, Action, Grooving

Tense and mercurial, ?Long Time Coming? begins with a slow, frenetic crescendo, and at 0:40 builds into the main melody with heavy percussion. At 1:04 the percussion is tacit, and at 1:18 a rippling crescendo builds to long, demented pulls on the string bass. The percussive beat begins again at 2:18, and then the frenzied, reverbed staccato of the piano enters, accompanied by a swelling synth lead. At 3:40 the piece finds it?s stride with pulsating synthesizer effects and a rumbling bass line. Best used as accompaniment for a tense, difficult level of a game or as the final battle with a villain. Because of its steady bass beat and snyth effects, this could also work well to depict a tense and suspenseful race to the finish, or as the music playing during a vibrant, pounding rave.

"Cognitive Dissonance"

Instruments: Electronic

Feel: Driving, Aggressive, Action

Main theme used in two different treatments. Specifically designed to turn your brain around... one sort of gets lost in the fog in the middle, and ends up pointing the wrong way by the end. Starts with a very long slow fade.

"Divertissement - Pizzicato (from the ballet Sylvia)"

Instruments: Orchestral - Pizz strings, Clarinet, Horn

Feel: Humorous,

Delibes. I am astounded that there are so few recordings of this piece on the net... for a few reasons. 1. Everyone knows this piece (but nearly no one knows what it is called). 2. It is very easy to record (Pizzicato strings have been one of the few samples that have sounded "real" for a long time). 3. The composer is long dead and his stuff is in the Public Domain (Lo Delibes; 1891). And for some background... Sylvia is a 3-Act ballet first produced in 1876. I'm pretty certain this particular piece has nothing to do with the plot - or it wouldn't be called a "divertissement".

"Meditation Impromptu 03"

Instruments: Piano

Feel: Relaxed, Calming

A single piano impromptu in D flat Major, broken into three files for easier downloading. This piece was made because many people were using my music as background for hypnosis and meditation products. This is a very very calming (and long) piano piece designed for just that. There is nothing startling contained in this piece... only light flowing melodies.

"Sovereign"

Instruments: Piano

Feel: Dark, Calming

Very very good new age piano solo in a minor. You might think 6 minutes is a bit long, but it isn't. Played on a darkly voiced piano. This piece should in no way be offered for free.
