Crank it up, ladies and gentlemen! Come on! Let's go! You know HOW TO CRANK! Let's go clockwise! Like... clockwise from the top - not the bottom. Grab it from the top. Either hand. It doesn't matter. Now CRANK IT! Crank it. ...like how a clock moves. The other way. If you take the part farthest from you and move it to the right... Counter-widdershins? You know what, it doesn't really need to be cranked.

This is my impression of a tv show street party scene scored by a composer from the 90s. #TexasSharpshooterFallacy
Instruments: Percussion, Basses, Cellos, Violins, Flutes, Clarinets
Feel: Dark, Driving, Eerie
More action and more intensity! Remember "Legends of the Hidden Temple"? Seriously? It only lasted 3 seasons. It must have been more difficult than it looked. Okay, I wasn't on the show, but I think I could have assembled a silver monkey statue with only 3 pieces.
Instruments: Piano, Basses, Cellos, Flutes, Clarinets, Oboes, English Horn, Percussion
Feel: Dark, Driving, Intense
This is an awesome theme tune. For ANYthing. You got a dark comedy about an inept biologist? This will work. A gritty fantasy dealing with fairy politics? A sci-fi dystopian future where everyone likes sardines? A reality show about bicycle thieves? A slice-of-life serial about growing up in the Upper Peninsula? Seriously. Anything.

Cross Hip-hop with Shoegaze and what do you get? That was not a joke. That was the description of this piece. If you have a show that opens with a shoegaze band, and then headlines a hip-hop group you could use this as the clever bridge between them! Also, you should immediately fire the concert manager. That was a terrible idea. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.
Instruments: Guitar, Synths, Percussion
Feel: Bright, Relaxed, Calming, Uplifting
Quite a broad piece. Could be used for corporate films of intricate industrial processes, or a flashback scene to the time at the lake a few summers ago. Maybe good background to your cousin's magic show at the last family reunion. Or a film where you do "industrial processes" at the "lake" with your "cousin". It is really quite versatile!

Instruments: Guitar, Bass, Drums, Organ
Feel: Driving, Humorous, Suspenseful
This piece started its life as a random challenge on a show I do on Twitch.tv called "The Wheels of Doom!". The 4 randomized elements that came together here were: Drum Machine, Strings, Xylophone, and Comedic. I think it worked out pretty well! You can download this in uncompressed format here.

Instruments: Piano, Flute, Bass, Percussion, Organ, Guitar, Mellotron
Feel: Calming, Grooving, Humorous
Okay, the tuning on the bass is a bit off here and there, but the heart is in the right place.Throw a filter on this and use it an your waiting area jam. Or on-hold music. Or pre-show music for your militia function. I'm sure the calming aspects would be very welcome in all the situations! Oh, you can also use this in your dance routines. Because bossa novas rock! ... or they Bossa... not sure. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.

Instruments: Percussion, Glass Marimba, Synths, Flutes
Feel: Dark, Eerie, Mystical
Could be the thinking music for a quiz show about the paranormal? "Where does the Sasquatch typically vacation... is it A, The High Mountains... B, Unexplored Cave Systems... C, Graceland... or D, In another dimension - similar to, but not strongly coupled with our own reality. Take your time and answer whenever you're ready.... A, B, C, or D... Would you like to consult the Tarot or do an entrail reading?" I love the flute bits in this piece. You can download this in uncompressed format here.

Instruments: Organ, Drums, Bass, Piano, Horns
Feel: Grooving, Bouncy, Humorous
Okay, it is a 12 bar blues, but you got to stick around at least until the horns! I couldn't start with the horns as that would be a frightening level of happy. The uncompressed download also comes with a perfectly loopable track for those who don't want the party to end. You can download this in uncompressed format here.

Instruments: Bass, Guitar, Diddley Bow, Clarinet, Trumpet, Vibraphone, Horns, Kit, Percussion
Feel: Bouncy, Humorous
Sort of inspired by the 1930s, and sort of inspired by all-out weird. Definitely recommend taking a listen to this piece. Make sure you get to the 1 minute mark... fun times trumpet playing await! I personally enjoy how the clarinet play tries to follow the trumpet player - doesn't work out so well. You can download this in uncompressed format here.
