Fast paced metal song with wicked cool synths/guitar harmonics throughout...verses are open and free, building to the big heavy, in your face chorus. Picture a dozen airplanes in a dog fight, or an airstrike by the good guys, just when you think there is no hope for survival. This song would be a good sound bed for any action scene, and also for various hard hitting sports themes. Nice pace and movement...
Tense, angry, powerful intro with big, mysterious verses with clean guitars building into heavy intro/chorus theme. The title says it can feel the hero (or villain?) lying in wait, in preparation of the ultimate ambush! Possible uses, various sports themes, and film/tv cues represneting tension (being trapped, struggling to break free, wanting someone to save you), hero saving someone
Nearly York (Time Alone) ** instrumental version **
Atlernative rock with chugging guitars, atmospheric keyboards, and a driving rhythm section. Dramatic music for lifechanging scenes!
Crime Scene Investigation, Forensics, Cop - about getting the bad guy ("the DNA don't lie")
Joe Trojcak (Liquid Voltage)
Groovy rhythm with snyth melody that floats above, interjected with guitar strums.
Don't let the heavy intro fool goes into dreamy, mysterious vibe...chorus movement is heavier with distorted guitars. Bad guy becomes good guy and goes out on a vigilante mission to atone for his sins. Possible uses - dream sequence, stream of conciousness, drifting off to sleep type of scenes, scenes shrouded in mystery, graveyard, full moon, vampires, ghosts, etc.
An intriguing piano based piece that displays the chaos before finding balance in one's life.
Highly percussive with a Bollywood flare. You can almost see the lioness stalking her prey in the jungle. Senses sharpened & hightened awareness as she gets closer to the prize. What other predators lurk?
Creepy, industrial goth type of treatment...synths, cool bass line, varied electric guitar treatments, nice steady movement. Chorus is filled with "tension". At 3:15, neat breakdown with strange, almost "spacey" vibe. You can picture walking through a graveyard, or underground cave and finding the secret passage where others did not make it out! Good for horror films, action, chase, stalking scenes, or scene where someone is building something, or a CSI is working in the forensics lab, or a cop checking out a crime scene.
Mid-tempo and heavy "paced" guitars with space in verses, leading into full chorus. Very modern/alternative treatment. This song is reminiscent of a fight scene in the style of Rocco Bonetti, the great Renaissance Italian fencing master. Song would be good for any type of action scenes, sports themes, thriller scenes, and of course a good sword fight to the death!!
Whether your scene is elephants romping through the jungle, or CSI's working on evidence in a high tech forensics lab, this versatile composition with a Bollywood feel will highlight the action!
Cool Jazz Piece with solid sax and drum programming. Possible Uses - as a theme for a radio talk show, Bumpers for radio, or Family / kids playing in the back yard
Tribal rhythm...weird chanting in the background...can almost see someone dancing around a fire in a ritual for this one!
Synthesizer symphony good for background for computer graphics or Space footage
SM2 (Strange Symmetry) ** instrumental version **
Up tempo acoustic guitar based rock song ala Matchbox 20, Rob Thomas...lots of movement to this one. Good for travel scenes and montages. Would work for lab scenes or evidence collection in your favorite CSI shows. Also perfect for advertising campaigns...phones, retail, travel, shopping, and more!

Music box synths dance with a hard hip hop drum beat. Brings on a heavy feeling good for dramatic montages.

The fog begins to float as you feel the warmth of the sunrise
An intense moment captured in melody, this tune is perfect for intense chases, and desperate, dangerous escapes. Keeps the listener holding on for dear life until the end.
You can almost see a clumsy loveable hippo slothing around trying to jam to the beats. Good for animation, animal shows, cartoons, educational pieces, and much more!
This just in, here on Newsline 4, an exciting new musical piece that evokes feelings of curiosity and wonder is taking documentaries by storm! Back to you, Al!
Get ready to learn about technology! Watch the machines dance as they package, protect, and move the tasty food we eat! Also has a "flowing water" feel.
Running through a jungle, chased by a animal, man or perhaps even a stampede! The sounds of the jungle pulsating in the background...this composition provides the perfect backdrop for nature based shows!
SM2 (Strange Symmetry) ** instrumental version **
Retro electric guitar based rock. Hendrix...Hendrix...Hendrix! The lead guitar feels like Jimi is playing it! Great bluesy, rockin tune perfect for anything from sports, to action/adventure films, to ad campaigns, to natural disaster documentaries. First lead is edgey...second lead section is explosive!! Rock on!!
Scholarly sounding piano based piece with urgent rhythms and a soft refrain that honors all teachers. Knowledge is Power!
Ideal for Nightclub scenery, a City-based chase, a back-alley brawl, or a sudden, horrific development. The tension builds as the beat progresses, and in the heat of the moment, brings a mixture of panic, anticipation, and action to the scene.
Deepest and darkest part of the early morning in an oriental forest
Hard driving and fast paced...very modern and alternative.'s okay to go fast, but kick in the NITRUS, and you fly (for a short while)!Action & chase scenes, love gone bad, bad guy stalking victim, muscle sports & fast paced sports (weight lifting, luge, downhill skiing, snowboarding, speed skating, football)
SM2 (Strange Symmetry)
Hard rock - Piano underneath and a heavy riff reminiscent of Muse's "Stockholm Syndrome".
Joe Trojcak (Liquid Voltage)
Bass, drums, piano, and strings create a swirling, syncopated melody that is balanced with a tense soundscape that reminds you of scores from the 80s and early 90s.
High energy, powerful, intro/choruses that would be perfect for sports...especially full contact (football, hockey) or sports with movement or element of danger (skiing, luge, speed skating). Intense and full of energy. Great for horror movies, vampires, ghosts,chase, bad guy trying to shoot good guy, and MORE!!
Up tempo, alternative rock song - good for sports, chase scenes, driving, action...good guy chasing bad guy...or perhaps the other way around!
Weird, creepy, intro...wispy and erie..going into mellow arpeggio electric guitar. Mid tempo, builds to heavier guitars in chorus. Bridge at 2:15 contains "Phantom of the Opera" type organ interlude. You can feel the moonlight rising, day melting into night. Possible uses...supernatural themes, vampire, contemplation, gentle/flowing type sports with an attitude, like figure skating, gymnastics, swimming, and more!
Very tense soundscape for a break in, hold up, and robbery that concludes with a frantic gun fight and escape! Or so one could hear.. Perfect for any scene that builds tension and eventually erupts!
Cool arpeggio "chorused" guitar/synth intro, verses have strange guitars bouncing back and forth...chorus has heavy, driving guitars. We've all floated in and out of that scarey dream, so glad to wake up and find it is not true. But what if the dream was peaceful and the awakening held frightening surprises. Great for sports, action, chaos, mystery and more
Strange, erie industrial goth rock...verses focus on a drum beat..then chorus hits with guitars, synths, and weird fuzzy drums. Fits any theme that is creepy or where tension is desired. Good for scenes where someone is hiding and being pursued by the creepy bad guy...they hide, bad guy stalks, and then they RUN LIKE HELL to get away from him!
Piano & cello - Erie, sad, atmospheric, gentle, dreamy, suspenseful - lovely backdrop for contemplative, sad, dream scenes...or looking out at the ocean and thinking, floating on the water, walking along the beach...or gentle, graceful sports themes (gymnastics, swimming, diving, etc.)

Tense and edgy alternative acoustic piece. Perfect for showing drama and tension building within the scene.

Another exciting endeavor, searching for mysteries and their answers

SM2 (Strange Symmetry) ** instrumental version **
Soft, lonely piano ballad that builds from a gentle ballad to a Muse, Evanescense like rock song. Song kicks in with heavy drums and distorted guitar in the bridge. Has tension and would work for anything from relationship scenes, to loss, thought, travel, discovery, and more! You can feel the sadness...
SM2 (Strange Symmetry) ** instrumental version **
Quirky guitar and piano based pop tango that should've been written by Quentin Tarantino. "Marching" drums throughout and makes you want to dance oh so mysteriously. From "Dancing With The Stars" to sports shows...has a real tension to it, so would also be great for action, adventure, travel, exploration, and a great backdrop for animal planet type of films. This one is fun and mysterious at the same time!
