"Lost Time"

Instruments: violas, cellos, basses

Feel: Somber, Dark

Is someone dying onscreen, but you still need some dialog so you can't go up against a solo oboe (the universal musical shorthand for death scenes)? We got this! Dark and moving, this piece will make you cry and not get in the way of those final bits of dialog! Also useful for sullen montage sequences of clergy activities. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.

"Dreams Become Real"

Instruments: Piano, Synths

Feel: Calming, Somber

Beautiful dreamy piece that confuses times and spaces. You really just need to take a moment and listen to this one - because it is really cool. How cool? You should probably find out! There are a lot of extra synth things going on in it that are hidden in and amongst the piano, like one of those hidden picture books with 45 paperclips, but you can only ever see 7 of them.

"Level Up"

Instruments: Synths

Feel: Dark, Intense

Too cool for school! This is a warm and refreshing, yet invigorating piece of 8-bit-like wonderfulness. Lots of modern blipping and bleeping once it gets going. I imagine this piece can be used in a lot of computer games about computer games. There's also a bunch of overdrive on "Level Up". Loops perfectly for all you video game devs out there!

Feel: Dark, Mysterious, Intense

Dark and broody, this one starts thin, gets really muddy, and then releases to a faster clearer section. Where would I use this? No idea. I'm sure you'll think of something, though!

You can download this in uncompressed format here! Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes. Sort of dark and mysterious, while still being current-sounding and light. Got a mystery in the city? I got your music! Crazy deep bass in lots of parts… careful when mixing this one.

Is this a Western? No idea. Super laid-back piece with a crazy subtle modulation at 1:06. Yeah. That happened. Slow, beautiful. The download comes with a slightly faster bonus version.

Slow, odd, and gosh-darned beautiful! There's a lot of subtle droniness and reverses. Maybe something supernatural here? There is certainly some things that aren't right about it.
