70S THRILLS II
Part 2 of the soundtrack for an action scene or a chase, composed in the spirit of 1970s. Double bass, violent Rhodes piano, sneaky guitar and lots of brass. Starring overactive drumset!
FAR AWAY ACROSS THE STREAM
Optimistic pop piano piece. And if a tune can sound curious (inquisitive), this is it. Piano, nothing else. Just piano.
PANTOMIME VILLAIN EMPTY CAGE
Comically threatening music for taking over the world. Interesting combo of lousy piano, drums, accordion, piccolo flute, english horn, bassoon and tuba. Muah ha ha!
Very heavy orchestral juggernaut. Medieval battles, scary catacombs & vikings are coming. Orchestral instruments, percussions & some noise.
THE SECOND EYE OF DOMDE MERTY
Heavy, synthesized & cold piece. Menacing & dangerous groove. Exploding drums, bassy bass and tons of synthesizers & percussions.
Chanting humans with organs. And a couple of organs. Massive & (un)holy feel.
ROYAL DANCE OF THE ORANGUTAN
Music for a circus or a carnival. Naturally what we’ve got here is some organ music, imitating that beefy steam organ stuff. Light and cheerful feeling.
WHEN YOUR MIND GOES CRASH BANG WOOSH
Orchestral comical entertainment music. Pretty silly groove played by a weird combo of contra bass, tuba, clarinet, flute, mallets & reed organ.
PEGHEAD IS BACK
Action-packed scifi-rock. Theme for an imaginary TV-show with dirt bikes, smoke and blasters. Powerful drums, bass, electric guitar, grand piano & some synths, bien sûr.
Dreamy pop-orchestral piece. Strings, piano, some brass & woodwinds. Always so lovely english horn leads the way. Glockenspiel hops here and there.
MONTAGE OF DAILY ROUTINES
Pretty pop/rock/orchestral piece to accompany things. Solid beat & some toppings brought to you by piano, strings, bass and drums as well as some brass and woodwinds. Oh yeah, and a bit of female vocals.
Solo piano piece for a silent film, perhaps a saloon brawl scene. Bang bang.
Solo piano playing a slow and menacing song. Record cracks and general distortion build up a vintage, almost historical feel. Dark, twisted and overall horrible stuff.
IN DREAMS THEY DANCE
Fairytalish & dreamlike are the first two words coming to me when describing this one. Fragile flute melody with two acoustic guitars, playing only harmonics. Also mellotron and a glimpse of strings.
Angelic voices echoing everywhere. Extremely simplistic melody. Lead singer, choir and spacechoir doing nothing but uuhs.
Orchestral background music, like in movie trailers. Loads of orchestral instruments + choir, some percussions & tubular bells. This is very much of a one trick pony, ever repeating chord structure with only subtle alterations.
Town drunks voyage home. Silent film-like, a bit weird waltz. Piano, mallets, english horn, cello, bass & percussions. Introducing bassoon as the protagonist.
PRAIRIE IS CALM
Peaceful little piano piece, strings join in later. Although originally not intended, to me this sounds very American. In a great plains sort of way. I added a lot of reverb to emphasize this image.
Soundtrack for an action scene or a chase, composed in the spirit of 1970s. Rhythm section + brass, vibraphone, clavinet and mellotron. The working title of this tune was ”Hackman vs. McQueen”.
OLD BROKEN MUSIC BOX
Only music box sounds here. I intentionally added some ”wrong notes” here and there, mostly heard near the end. It makes the simple and otherwise cute song sound a bit creepy.
LA STRADA DI GATTUSO
Cinematic rock piece. Rhythm section + strings, synthesizer and choir. I’ve been calling this one a ”trashy Morricone”. It has very italian feel but more straightforward than usually in spagetti westerns. Perhaps ”Morricone meets Argento”?
BATTLE OF KUSTAVI
Soundtrack of a battle scene. A very percussive piece that features strings and brass as well as the relevant distorted guitars and orchestral hits.
