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. You can download the full uncompressed files here!
On My Way
If you’re not adding to the narrative; get out of the way! This piece gets out of the way… You can put it under any monolog, dialog, timelapse… actually, with a timelapse, you could probably find something a little more interesting with some pacing, or something. So… this is for those sure nice videos. Guaranteed* to offend as few people as possible!

Light and refreshing as a summer’s day! I really just should lift ad copy for laundry detergent and fabric softener for this one. Springtime Fresh Scent! Pure and Simple! Brightens! Gentle on Fabrics! Great Value! Easy-pour Bottle! Marimbas! You can download the full uncompressed files here!
Before you complain about the bass, that is the entire point of this mix. It is scary-bass… yet somehow subdued. If this bass was a car, it would be a cement mixer… That’s a terrible analogy. Forgetting for the moment that a cement mixer isn’t a car… I guess they have the ones that are mounted on big trucks – and those trucks share a lot in common with cars, you know steering wheels, engines, tires, and the soon-to-be-anachronistic internal combustion engine. Anyway, if you don’t like the bass you can pretty easily EQ it to a reasonable level, or buy the stems and remix it yourownself.
Before you complain about the use of the word “yourownself”, I wrote it. You understood it. It is a word. There is also some dreamy flute in here. You can download the full uncompressed files here!
Comedic “hard thinking” music. Chances are you won’t need the entire piece if you are making a film. I made it so you can cut it up into different sounding sections of various seriousness. If you’re using it for a video game, everything flows together well, or you could loop sections that work best. You can download the full uncompressed files here!
What makes a Bossa Nova a Bossa Nova? Whatever it is, this has it double! Or maybe it is just compensating for its relatively simple chord progression. Enjoy your Bossa! Probably. Probably a Bossa Nova. You can download the full uncompressed files here!
You know that sound that was big in 80s dance music with that sort of galloping doo-do-do-DAH-do-do-doo-do-do-DAH thing? This has a thing like that, but in really, really complex drum sound. You need to wait until 16 seconds in to hear what the doo-do-do-DAH-do-do-doo-do-do-DAH sounds like. I know it can be difficult reading KRN (Kevin’s Rhythmic Notation). A-do-do-dooo-a-da-da-daaah is all I want to say to you. You can download the full uncompressed files here!
Welcome to the Holiday Inn, Airport. The presentation will begin shortly.
SUCCESS starts with your ATTITUDE!
If you are not EARNING, make sure you are LEARNING!
AMBITION is the path to success. PERSISTENCE is the vehicle you arrive in.
Success is doing the OPPOSITE of what everyone else is DOING!
Actually… don’t take this last one too literally. If everyone else is using the door, don’t try walking through a wall (or whatever the opposite of a “door” is). I mean… there is a reason most people do the same things. Usually because they make sense. Oh, sure… it is okay to QUESTION what people are doing, but just doing the opposite… probably not great.
Avast ye maties! All your boat are belong to us! Super chipper piratey-like 8bit tune. I mean, it could be used for non-nautical things, but the audience will probably be all like “Hey! Why is there an 8-bit pirate shanty going on here!?” Perfectly loopable for all your casual seafaring games. Or game reviews. Or actual voyages. Or voyage reviews.
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.
