Adventure, Ho! Last time on "Adventure, Ho!", the mage-orc Gnarlnosh was granted 1d4 wishes from a Deck of Many Things and it totally screwed up the game balance. Why? Because the DM sort of sucks, but he thought "Oh, sure - this could be fun... how could giving a mage-orc a fully provisioned army in the middle of a desert possibly sidetrack the quest for finding a cure for a magical disease that is ruining the kingdom AND the healer elf." Deck of Many Things; BAH! More like Deck of This-Campaign-Jumped-the-Shark.
Saint-Saens' masterpiece. This piece is 100% free to use. It will probably get claimed by any number of music publishers, just so you know. They can't tell the difference between this and their copyrighted recordings. Contest the claims. Contest all the claims. I do not claim music.
Super non-offending little piece. Takes voice-over very well. Available in several lengths.
Loud manic sing-along-but-don't-take-a-breath version recorded for a stage production.
Slower, solo piano version of the "Look Busy" piece (found elsewhere on this site).
Abrasive upright piano sets the tone for this start-stop horror suspense piece. This piece along with 2 other horror/suspense pieces are available for full uncompressed downloads - with individual parts if you would like to make your own mix.
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.
Nice, forward-pulling piece pretty much guaranteed to offend no one. This piece is a little more complex than others in this genre because of the multiple countermelodies. They clear out many times, and make room before coming back in. You can make your own mixes with the uncompressed downloads to only include the melodies you want if you like! You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.
Sort of a loafing comedic piece for all of your amusing scenes with dialog that does not need to move the story. Also reasonable for scenes with no dialog.
This is a sort of electronic music with a heavy backbeat and thumpin' bass. There is a significant change in theme at around 2 minutes - so if the beginning is a bit boring, you can start there. There is another fun change at around 3:30. If you didn't like the previous bits, just start there! I think you get the picture. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.
Simple motive countered by several striking dissonances.
It is the future? It certainly sounds like it... What would I use this for? Probably a video game with non-action gameplay. Certainly a montage of some futuristic film... or maybe one of those sandwiched scenes where a person is walking in the rain, but you don't get any of the sounds of the actual rain... just this piece. No dialog, no voiceover, just walking. Do they have a name for those scenes? They must. You can download this in uncompressed format here.
