This piece would set the mood for something dramatic serious and desperate. Nice for a dramatic film trailer especially, the first two minutes. Later we hear transitional music as more proud and triumphant themes are developed. (Broadjam.com top 10 hit)

A lighthearted Classical piano Chamber strings piece that you might hear in a Jane Austen sophisticated romantic comedy.
"Once Upon A Time"
Don't let the title fool you. This is piece doesn't have a happy ending. It is serious and melancholy at the same time. Great for a dramatic score.
"It’s Not You, It’s Me"
This is an aggressive piano and woodwind ensemble piece evoking feelings of romance lost or something near and dear to your heart that vanishes.
"Sticks N’ Stones"
Chamber piece consisting of Strings and woodwinds in the Classical/Baroque style. Light hearted, Cheery and child like melodies. The piece is comprised of two main themes and a bridge. In fact, it has a typical pop song Intro-A-B-A-B-C-A-B structure.
"The Art of Darkness"
This piece can best be described as a dark Waltz or sort of a stylized dance of death.
"The Unsung Villians"
Triumph over good. An anthem for villains or antiheros. Of course this also could be used for the good guys as well. There is another string based melody here that is more laid back suggesting feelings of pride or triumph.
Imagine troops assembling for battle. Imagine the bloody battle. Then imagine the tragic high cost of victory. That is the best way to describe this 9 minute plus epic dedicated to all of those who fight for freedom around the world. You know more than anybody else that freedom isn't free.
