Minimal and somewhat droney in parts, this has a beautiful calmness about it. You can use it to sell anti-depressants or high performance automobile parts. Also useful for time-lapse photography of the night sky... or maybe a rocket launch. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.
A harp solo in several distinct sections. It works well as a contained piece, but also contains several smaller sections that stand alone.
With a bouncing bass and frantic trumpet blasts, the cymbals crash and instantly take you inside the circus tent, where a tense high-wire act competes with the rotund ringmaster. The music is jovial and intense, with a flair of ridiculousness.
A rapid piece full of alternating strings and bassoons, with long and drastic bass notes. The heavy funereal chimes and foreboding minor key evoke a scene of a frantic chase through the woods or a race against time.
Made up of two thirty-second refrains, ?A Turn for the Worse? is deep and funereal, ringing of sorrow, grief, and death. In the first refrain, the violin lilts and meanders like the wail of a grieving widow, and at 0:35 the clarinet comes in, echoing the violin?s refrain in a dark call-and-response. The piano, cello, and accordion provide slow, mournful accompaniment, and in the first refrain, the tubular bells chime as if they were death?s final toll.
J. S. Bach's 3-part invention that I hacked together for music for a "stuffy aristocratic dinner party". Of all the Sinfonias, I think this works the best for that.
Written by Gustav Holst, 1921; Arranged by Kevin MacLeod 2006. Originally published in a hymnbook - this piece took readily to the WWII retrospective type of arrangement.
A slow, very calm piece featuring English horn, piano, and bass. Center section also has brass ensemble and strings.
Several mode changes made for an action-like chase scene.
Big buildup at the end. So much suspense! How do you classify a piece like this?!
A strings only piece, evocative of love, romance, and pride. Just before the one minute mark the music takes an unexpected turn, becoming intensely emotional and beautiful as the strings play in the higher register with a slight tremolo, with the bass filling up the empty space in the last half minute.
A driving piece with heavy usage of the tuba in the background providing a constant beat throughout the piece. English Horns and Oboe's have small role in the middle of the piece. Strings used throughout.
Beautiful sweeping strings run counter to an energetic wind section with light accents from the glock's piercing bell tones.
It is 1895, you just got your new brass-rimmed monocle, and you want to head out to see the new gigantic music machine that was just constructed... Roaring 1920s fun, 1930s art music style bridge... it is the retro future of music.
