Sleepless Night Dreams   full length track

Intense ambient drama music! Night is a good friend for broken hearts.

Use this in romantic movies, drama, and anywhere an atmosphere of pensive unease is necessary. Sounds like the softer side of Trent Reznor, Nine Inch Nails, Gone Girl, Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.

composer: Cinesthetic | duration: 59 seconds

I found a new favorite spot for camping in the Winter with a beautiful stream and a secret waterfall that can only been seen with a drone. I spent a few nights here cooking and keeping warm with the stove inside the hot tent. I experienced all kinds of weather including wind, rain and thunderstorms.
