"White Lotus"

Instruments: Metals, Synths, Psaltery, Piano

Feel: Calming, Relaxed

Interesting new age sort of piece, that meets you halfway in the beginning with a lush, but brittle metallic soundscape. As it progresses - the metals fall away, and you're left with a bed of pure sine waves, and a piano tuned exactly to go along with them.

"Inexorable"

Instruments: Various

Feel: Dark, Eerie, Mysterious, Mystical, Unnerving

Highly processed and oddly played piano makes up the harmonic base of this piece. Sort sort of ticking clock thing... This is a brash mix, but probably not as bad as you think!

"Dark Pad"

Instruments: Synths

Feel:

This is a dark and eerie arrhythmic thing with deep lows and cutting highs. Experimental only in the personal sense - I just got GarageBand, and I'm seeing what the (very nice) electronic effects can do.

"Redletter"

Instruments: Strings, Synths

Feel: Dark, Eerie, Intense, Suspenseful, Unnerving

High-pitched strings play above a low drone, while fuzzy noises and cymbal rolls flow throughout. The high strings crescendo and quickly cut out as if a knife sliced their throats. A somber melody plays in the final minute, and the noises crescendo and come at you from every angle, symbolic of an attack and a gruesome finale.

"Impromptu in Quarter Comma Meantone"

Instruments: Piano

Feel: Calming, Eerie, Somber

Impromptu performed on a Steinway Model D tuned to Quarter Comma Meantone. This gives a very rich feel to the base chords, but leaves a couple of "wolf notes" in the gaps (most notably in the Ab). 2 minutes in, it lingers on the most out-of tune part of the scales.
