"Raw"

Instruments: Bass, Bass, Kit

Feel: Bouncy, Dark, Grooving

This low bass guitar piece is dirty ad raw; the strings are forcefully played, and you can hear the vibrations, the squeaks, and the ruggedness, all of which creates a carefree attitude. The drums are barely noticeable. The other bass accompanies the root bass without ever gaining prominence. When the drums stop and the bass plays its final refrain, you can really hear how the music is refreshingly unrefined.

"Covert Affair"

Instruments: Bass, Ep, Kit, Trumpet

Feel: Bouncy, Suspenseful

The scene is set for a surreptitious heist or furtive affair. The fingered acoustic bass sounds woody and dark while playing against the light cymbals and the vibrant electric piano and trumpet. The individual instruments have a slight battle for dominance, but the persistence of the slick styled bass ultimately wins.

"Bump in the Night"

Instruments: Percussion

Feel: Dark, Intense, Unnerving

Haunting noises and a tribal drum permeate this eclectic soundscape, and just before the first minute is up demonic breathy noises give way to a chilling silence before the return of the pounding drum. Caution: Very bass heavy.

"Gymnopedie No. 3"

Instruments: Piano

Feel: Calming, Mysterious

A slow waltz with a beautiful and haunting melody played mostly in the higher registers. A few notes were added to Satie?s composition to keep things interesting and give the music a more full sound, the music ends with a very dark chord. This music is sad and tragic, and could be used as accompaniment to a slow dance or an art house film. Composed by Erik Satie.
