Calm opening with giant hit around 1:50 that calms down some and ends on grating tones.

Dark, Eerie, Intense, Unnerving

One of Them

Genre: Horror Collection: Dark World
Time: 3:32 unknown tempo
Instruments: Strings, Synths, Choir, Brass

A very dark piece heavily featuring cymbal and bells. Frequent Cymbal usage creates unnerving feeling. 3:08 prolonged trombone. Lasts almost 30 seconds. This piece is great for an eerie atmosphere.

Dark, Eerie, Mysterious, Unnerving


Genre: Horror Collection: Horror Soundscapes
Time: 4:38 unknown tempo

Classic Horror 1

Genre: Horror Collection: Dark World
Time: 1:31 unknown tempo

A fairly intense beginning with a small piano part I pulled from a thing I wrote last week (Trio for Piano Violin and Viola), followed by a very long section of not moving much.

Dark, Eerie, Mystical, Somber

Long Note Four

Genre: Horror Collection: Horror Soundscapes
Time: 10:00 unknown tempo
Instruments: Piano, Choir, Violins, Basses, Percussion, Synths

5/8 time gives this piano solo a really unsettling feel. It uses more of the range of the piano, and can be chopped up to suit scenes well.

Classic Horror 2

Genre: Horror Collection: Horror Themes
Time: 1:15 unknown tempo
Instruments: Piano

Simple motive countered by several striking dissonances.

Dark, Eerie, Somber, Unnerving

Dark Walk

Genre: Horror Collection: Darkness and Unease
Time: 1:26 unknown tempo

Alternate tuning is very apparent here, Deep voicing lends a very ominous quality. Sounds more like the mind of someone who is breaking.
