"Man Down"

Instruments: EP, Violas, Cellos, Strings

Feel: Suspenseful, Dark, Somber

This is the Miami Nights main theme motive, but really quite sad. You know what's awesome? This "string synth" is 8 actual cellos and 12 violas... multi-tracked 4 times. Technology! So much power, you can't help but abuse it!

"Lost Time"

Instruments: violas, cellos, basses

Feel: Somber, Dark

Is someone dying onscreen, but you still need some dialog so you can't go up against a solo oboe (the universal musical shorthand for death scenes)? We got this! Dark and moving, this piece will make you cry and not get in the way of those final bits of dialog! Also useful for sullen montage sequences of clergy activities. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.
