Story

Instrumental - World Music

Warm and passionate, featuring mellow keyboards, ethnic percussion and piano that create a majestic, positive mood.

Enchanting beginning flows as tension builds intriguingly to a majestic climax, and resolves in a long slow heartfelt release. At times orchestral with touches of jazz.

Story

Introductory tones of darkness reminiscent of a suspense movie set the stage for the sci-fi tale that begins when a sudden spark jolts the story-teller to life and consciousness, and he begins the first-person narrative of being aware as he is wheeled into the operating room, and transformed into a cyborg - part man and part machine - who invites you to join him and live forever in his techno dream.

Story

Fantastic footage starring the Eastern Bluebird as an inter-species drama unfolds; an ancient struggle over resources, and the make-up of the social fabric of the community. The indigenous Sparrow, Titmouse and Chickadee generally co-exist peacefully. Here they join forces to prevent the migrant Bluebirds from nesting.

Story

Dark, heavily instrumented mix with forceful percussion creates a panoramic surreal/sci-fi feel.

Prophetic commentary on contemporary political rhetoric and social environment, envisioning the evolution of an authoritarian state as foretold in “Christian Nation” by Frederic C. Rich and “It Can’t Happen Here” by Sinclair Lewis.

Story

Instrumental

A metaphor for a summer relationship: A dreamy start of wishful anticipation builds repeatedly through several bright emotional highs, interludes of pleasure. A stormy crescendo stokes melancholy as parting and release approach. 

 

Moods shift from bright and hopeful to pensive and melancholy through a seemless flow and variety of melodies featuring guitars and synths, over a danceable infectious beat and percussion textures, while bass lines meld with and drive lush instrumentation building to a surprise ending afterparty.

Story

Animal Farm is up-tempo rousing rock/pop/jazz/electronica with a dance beat.

A zoo of rhythmic animals draws you into morphing patterns featuring soaring guitar solos and synth-pop melodies that are built on solid synchronization between percussion and a driving bass. A sensuous female vocal interlude early on serves to focus attention for the next step up in intensity. Natural sounds provide a soothing release to end the track.

Story

Instrumental – Sweet, light intro breaks into a thumping ride, sparse at first, then building. A variety of textures with vibes, guitars, keyboards. Moody, flowing agreeably between major and minor. A brief change in tone refocuses attention in the middle.
