"Ascending the Vale"

Instruments: Harp, Choir, Flute Percussion, Anyafil Horn

Feel: Relaxed, Calming, Mystical

We've all been there... wandering through an impenetrable forest, half dead with 2 arrows sticking out of your leg. And yet we continue - because it is probably good for the narrative. Then hope! Oh thank the old gods and the new!! An unmapped settlement of woodland inhabitants takes you in and brings you back from the brink of certain death. You don't even care that it is a scurry of giant squirrels that came to the rescue, or that the healing soup they give you is largely acorn-based, and vomit-inducing. Pastoral and beautiful. The download comes with a loop for if you never want the feeling to end.

Feel: Bright, Calming, Relaxed

Some beautiful rural americana-type music. I mean, just listen to that! It is an 8 piece ensemble, and everyone is playing a lot of notes, yet it remains so simple. Okay, the violins aren't playing that many notes... had to pick up the 2nd violin off the waiver wires, and there wasn't enough time to get her up to speed on the offense for this piece. So we made an executive decision, and kept things simple. We should still be able to get some good yardage here, and hope to win on defense.

"Lobby Time"

Instruments: Vibes, Piano, Bass, Drums

Feel: Calming, Grooving, Relaxed

Welcome to the lobby of the FUTURE! Luxurious automatic ashtrays, and modern green vinyl furnishings set off the shag carpeted walls. Enjoy a Rusty Nail from our cheerful bar staff (with a complimentary cheese and fruit plate before 5pm). We feature prime rib dinners every day that ends in a "y"! Remember to tip the bellhops at least 5 cents per bag. Enjoy your stay! This was written 2 years before it was published, because I didn't have a good enough upright bass sample to make it go.

"Inspired"

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!

"Thunderbird"

Instruments: Bass Flute, Synths, Percussion

Feel: Somber, Relaxed, Mystical, Calming

Wikipedia describes the Thunderbird as "a supernatural bird of power and strength". It will also ask you to disambiguate it from the automobile made by Ford from 1955 to 2005. I'm sure it was a nice car. I've never owned one. But there were a lot of them! The late 70's Thunderbirds are particularly horrifying... They had those headlight covers that flipped up... because that was a good idea at some point. But this piece! Oh! This piece! Atmosphere like you wouldn't believe! The flute is just so earthy! The organic drones are also beautiful. The whole thing is beautiful. Kind of like you went to an alien day spa in another dimension where days last for years, but you still never get all wrinkly when you're in the bubbly warm waters. mmmm... bubbly warm waters... with the slight possibility of a serial killer.

"Crypto"

Instruments: Flute, Percussion, Synths

Feel: Dark, Eerie, Unnerving, Suspenseful

Very moody little piece with some melodic interest. Tension could be high grade or low grade depending on your context. Waiting for a drug deal to go through in Belize? This'll work. Concerned about the health of your hyacinth macaw while waiting at the vet office? This'll work. Waiting for the OSHA all-clear at your box factory? This'll work. It is mainly about waiting for things. Probably not good things. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.

"Ossuary 2 - Turn"

Instruments: Synths, Percussion

Feel: Dark, Relaxed, Calming, Eerie, Mysterious

At the intersection of relaxation and horror lies "The Ossuary". Part 2: Turn More aggressive than part one, something is most certainly going down here. Perfect for; seeing how far down the rabbit hole goes, Loch Ness expeditions, videos about giant capacitors, dinner parties where you want everyone uncomfortable. Gets quite awful around the 3:15 mark. Awful in a good way. You can download the uncompressed version of this here! It comes with separate files for the percussion and synth if you want to mix them on your own.

Feel: Bright, Grooving

Discomedusae is an obsolesced class of jellyfish. I'm guessing there was some biology schism back in the day and some crazy jellyfish specialist wrote some sort of definitive work on the animals and everyone had to change their classification. The jerk. I mean, it was probably JUST FINE the way it was! But NOOooo! You had to come along and screw up my perfectly good taxonomy key - rendering it USELESS! Hey jellyfish specialist - guess what? No one cares that much anyway! We're all just placating you until you die, and then everyone is going back to using the old keys, which we could at least figure out! This is a disco tune.
