Instruments: Bass, Drums, Guitar, Electric Piano, Uilleann Pipes
Feel: Bright, Grooving, Relaxed
You know what, I honestly don't know what I was thinking here. This is one of those "throw things at the wall and see if it works" kinds of pieces. It would have been completely uninteresting were it not for the Uilleann Pipes. Not a lot of music out there for bagpipes and electric piano. Consider the void filled!
Instruments: Synths, Electric Piano
Feel: Calming, Relaxed
Imagine yourself floating in a beautiful sky, the aggressive badgers of the land do not bother you here at all. Todd from HR doesn't try to make small talk with you in this place, nor does he try to invite you to his kid's wrestling tournament that is being held at a school 90 minutes away. The coyote-lizards of your night terrors do not roam here, and you can clearly read the expiration dates on all your packages. Even the hand soap. Why does the hand soap have an expiration date? It matters not.

What's the difference between a dead frog in the road, and a dead trombone player in the road? The frog was probably going to a gig! Hah! Get it? Well... it took me 8 years to get it, so let me explain. When you go out hunting frogs, that is called "gigging". Gigging is bad for a frog. When you go out playing an instrument in a band for money, that is called "gigging". Gigging is good for a trombone player... but man, you gotta be good. You pretty much need a bass player and a drummer... not many people need a trombone player, so they typically don't get many gigs... Did I explain that right? Wait, let me start over...
Instruments: Synth, Cello, Piano, Choir
Feel: Calming, Relaxed, Somber
Ok, I might be crying a little bit. But it is understandable... I went to a party store, and I saw all the colorful balloons with happy sayings on them like "Get Well" and "Feel Better" and "A Hug for You"... I just started thinking how the helium will all be gone one day. Just gone... we won't get it back, and it took millions of years of radioactive decay to get the helium we have now... and... *sniff* we just don't have millions more years to wait for more. They're wasting helium in balloons... how can I possibly "Feel Better"!?

When I do music based on folk traditions, I tend to name them after cities. Like this one: Shenyang. It is a little village of 8 million people that I've somehow never heard of. Oh sure, I've heard the name, but I don't associate it with anything specific. Chicago: Hot Dogs. Amsterdam: Offensively tall Dutch. Moscow: "Stop a Douchebag". Shenyang: No clue. How did I miss this city?? You already know if you need this piece, it has a more satisfying low-end than actual real Chinese music, and it should fit in with your modern productions well.
Instruments: Banjo, Trumpet, Tuba, Drums, Piano
Feel: Bouncy, Humorous, Bright
A rousingly comedic romp on the dark side of Dixieland music, featuring a wonderfully questionable trumpet player!
Instruments: Piano, Bass, Drums, Guitar
Feel: Calming, Grooving, Bright
What makes a Bossa Nova a Bossa Nova? Whatever it is, this has it double! Or maybe it is just compensating for its relatively simple chord progression. Enjoy your Bossa! Probably. Probably a Bossa Nova.
Instruments: Vibes, Piano, Bass, Drums

Welcome to the lobby of the FUTURE! Luxurious automatic ashtrays, and modern green vinyl furnishings set off the shag carpeted walls. Enjoy a Rusty Nail from our cheerful bar staff (with a complimentary cheese and fruit plate before 5pm). We feature prime rib dinners every day that ends in a "y"! Remember to tip the bellhops at least 5 cents per bag. Enjoy your stay! This was written 2 years before it was published, because I didn't have a good enough upright bass sample to make it go.
Instruments: Prepared Piano, Bass Clarinet, Cello, Clarinet, English Horn, Tuba, Trombones, French Horns, Oboe, Synth, Violin, Flutes
Feel: Dark, Eerie, Mysterious
Several distinct moods are found in this piece. They start at 0:00, 1:23, 2:31, and 3:10. They do all flow into each other, but can be sliced apart pretty easily. Some are quite beautiful, so stick with this piece. Excellent piece for filmmakers!
Instruments: Piano, Percussion
Feel: Calming, Relaxed
Gorgeous, rich piano chords run counter to subtle percussions. This piece is a workhouse for video productions. Don't bother with the preview, just download this thing. Because seriously... planning a cat rescue? This will work. Attending someone else's family reunion and trying to convince them you're related? Yes. This will work. Time lapse of a rocket assembly? Obviously. I'm looking at you, ESA!
Instruments: Piano, Synths, Brass
Feel: Eerie, Unnerving, Dark
Oh! The horror! This is NOT a fun piece. It WILL make you feel like there is something seriously wrong. Did those veins on my forearm always look like that? I mean, they're doing a weird criss-cross pattern... and they look REALLY blue. I would have noticed that before, surely! I wonder if this has anything to do with the meteor that came down in Mr. Wilson's pond last night? Uncompressed download comes with 4 stem files in case you don't need all the creepy, all the time.
