"Gymnopedie No. 1"

Instruments: Piano

Feel: Calming, Relaxed, Uplifting

Elegant and slightly dark, the simplicity of the piano melody is light and touching, with a feeling of pensive restraint. It is beautiful accompaniment to the close of a drama, or of a midday reverie. Composed by Erik Satie.

"Darkest Child"

Instruments: Harp, Celesta, Cellos, Basses

Feel: Dark, Eerie, Unnerving

A childlike celeste plays high notes among a barely audible harp and deep bass. In the second minute the disturbing melody is in a lower register, and strings accentuate the discordant sounds before returning to the high register. The music is excellent for a creepy dream sequence or the exposition of an unknown fantasy world. SMARTSOUND

"Constancy Part Two"

Instruments: Strings, Chimes, Tympani, Flute, Bass Clarinet, Bassoon, Oboe

Feel: Dark, Epic, Intense, Suspenseful

Full of rhythmic strings and woodwinds in the lower registers, the high pitched violin that edges in and out of tune is unnerving and eerie. The pounding bass drums and church bells ring throughout, a symbol of impending doom. This music draws the line between being beautiful and frighteningly dystopian.

"Constancy Part One"

Instruments: Strings, Chimes, Glock, Bassoon, Bass Clarinet

Feel: Dark, Driving, Intense, Suspenseful

A rapid piece full of alternating strings and bassoons, with long and drastic bass notes. The heavy funereal chimes and foreboding minor key evoke a scene of a frantic chase through the woods or a race against time.

"Sneaky Snitch"

Instruments: Oboe, Strings, Snare Drum

Feel: Bouncy, Dark, Humorous, Mysterious

An oboe and a snare drum dance a tantalizing number with the whimsical plucks of a string quartet. The staccato nature of the music suggests walking on tiptoes, while the nasal notes of the oboe flits about almost imperceptibly. In the final minute, the string quartet plays a simple rhythm, before the oboe and snare drum crescendo to the finale.

"Unanswered Questions"

Instruments: Kora

Feel: Grooving, Suspenseful

The solid beat and dark melody reverberate, giving the simplicity of this single-instrument piece the feeling of mounting tension and unease. Useful for a documentary showing pain, poverty, or imprisonment.

"Dark Times"

Instruments: Strings

Feel: Dark, Somber

Deeply troubling and somber, this piece is heavy on the bass strings, especially in the last minute. The feel is very dark and funereal, and could be used to depict the beginning of the apocalypse.

"Iron Horse - Distressed"

Instruments: Piano

Feel: Dark, Driving, Intense

Darkly plodding, this staccato piano piece is the tense setting for the classic silent film scene: the heroine is tied to the train tracks, the steam engine train plugging along towards her. The chug-a-chug feel is maintained by a tense hammering of the chords in triplets, depicting machinery or chaos set in motion without an end in sight.
