"Pop Goes the Weasel"

Instruments: Strings, Percussion, Toy Piano

Feel: Dark, Eerie, Intense, Unnerving

Heavy bass drums and an string bass set the tone for this dark and menacing tone. The familiar refrain then plays, but is made expressive and almost violent as it is played on several string basses and cellos. The pace is rather quick and forceful, and after the quick ending, a jack-in-the-box plays, normally child-like, but made creepy because of the sinister music that came before.

"Rains Will Fall"

Instruments: Piano, Kit, Strings

Feel: Calming, Somber, Uplifting

Slow Waltz. English Waltz. Foxtrot. Slow Fox. The piano plays a mournful, waltzing melody, while strings enter gently. Halfway into the second minute, the tone is more hopeful, but then returns to the sadness of the introduction. Just before the third minute ends the hope returns, but melts again into sadness with the final high note of the piano. This is music for a rainy day, or when the hero to a story has lost his way.

"Whiskey on the Mississippi"

Instruments: Guitar, Bass, Kit, Organ, EP

Feel: Bouncy, Grooving

With a jumping bass and off-beat syncopation, this is straight from Memphis? Beale Street. The Hammond organ and electric guitar play together as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to electric piano.

"Fig Leaf Rag - distressed"

Instruments: Piano

Feel: Bouncy, Bright

The classic ragtime ditty of Scott Joplin, perfect for a silent film of whimsy and humor. The piece begins with a short intro, then plays the bouncy rhythm of with a bright plodding beat. At the end of the third minute, the pace quickens, and leads into a darker refrain, but the jolly melody returns for the finale. With added record player effects.

"Open Those Bright Eyes"

Instruments: Piano, guitar, bass, kit

Feel: Bouncy, Bright

This piece is made up of three distinct variations on a melodic theme, and should be taken apart and used for transitions in a light-hearted short video. The first section begins with a bright, leading to the big push of the bombastic brass. The second section, beginning at 0:52, is the same melody, but only features the piano. This section is softer and lasts 20 seconds. The final section begins at 1:17, and ends with an excited flourish.

"Stealth Groover"

Instruments: Piano, Bass, Guitar, Kit, Synth

Feel: Bouncy, Grooving

The constancy of the bass melts into your consciousness, as the syncopation of the high-pitched piano and electric guitar keep the groove flowing. Subtle synthesizer arrangements change the flow of the song and keep it interesting, while the rhythm section is playful and experimental. This is perfect for a scene where the spy learns a new skill or performs an act of guile, or as the background to a low-key, tech-oriented game.
