The bass drums leads this song with a mesmerizing pulse, followed by a simple repetitive guitar line. The song maintains the basic theme throughout, but builds until the end, where it ends with the pulse of the bass drum again.

Track with lots of tension. Features piano, vibes and other instruments.
composer: Giannis | duration: 110 seconds
Quirky and hypnotic retro classical piece, with a heavy influence from Italian traditional music and Baltic/Gypsy music as well.
With a somewhat funny and unusual mystery aura, investigative and foggy.
A repetitive cello pizzicato progression is surrounded by a series of dreamy chromatic melodies on mandolin, clarinet, flute, celesta, glockenspiel, basson, harmonium and violin.
This piece could easily fit a Frederico Fellini's surreal scene.

A mysterious, atmospheric cue with ambient synthetics, sparse distant percussion, etc. Somewhat tribal, making it suitable for topics involving ancient, historical, or cultural mysteries.
composer: EH Music | duration: 95 seconds
Spacious marimba, strings and solo clarinet take us by the hand and lead us through to a flamboyant spanish guitar. The guitar forms an easy groove which meets up with the clarinet, before launching itself even higher with drums and percussion to a sensual climax. Perfect for dramas, documentaries, or any project needing an emotional, expressive touch with just a twist of cool to it.
