Feel: Dark, Unnerving
This short piece is the accompaniment for the hero surreptitiously breaking into a corporation or headquarters. The reverberating congas, triangle, and synthesized percussion enhance the senses, while the bass guitar provides a strong groove. The strings raise in pitch, evoking a sense of building tension. High-pitched crescendo of strings at 0:45 is the climax of the suspense.
Instruments: Percussion, Synth Bass, Bass section, Oboe, Bassoon, Clarinet, Piccolo
Feel: Dark, Eerie, Intense, Mysterious, Unnerving
Bass is very VERY strong in this. Please make sure you master on a system capable of reproducing these notes. The end feel is decided different from the rest of the piece. It does an unnerving build to nowhere.
Feel: Bouncy, Bright, Uplifting
Quick and flowing like water, the piano is warm and bright, perfect for a romantic comedy or tender interlude. The melody is sweet and repeated four times in different refrains. First at the main register, then an octave lower at 0:12. After the bridge interlude at 0:23, the melody resumes at 0:35, and at 0:49 plays in a higher register, then slows to the final arpeggiated resolve.
Feel: Dark, Somber, Mysterious
6/8 apreggiations with a thin high melody.
Feel: Dark, Somber
Methodical and depressing short piece. Written as a quick composition study with only strings.

Feel: Dark, Eerie, Intense, Mystical, Unnerving
Instruments: Brass, Winds, Percussion, Strings
Feel: Dark, Epic, Driving
A very serious and straight dark orchestral piece. Tubular bells, bass trombone, and bass drum add a lot of low-end.
