"Buy it once.  Use it forever!"

DESTINY
Moderate: A new-age, multi-cultural landscape of primal rhythms and global textures. Expansive, flowing and futuristic. Evocative of both the new millennium and the timeless past.
 
THE MENTOR
Moderate: Boardroom left behind, the fruits of faithful leadership and the sweet scent of success honored with steady piano and soaring strings.
 
STAR WALK
Slow: Eerie echoes of unearthly guitars and faraway flutes driven by seductive drums on a steady walk into a future world.
 
TEARS IN RAIN
Moderate: Sad and lonely. Maybe the lost dreams of a weary traveler in far-away places. Or the dark nostalgic mystery of a hidden secret.
 
QUANDARY
Moderate: Serious strings, hypnotic piano and subtle harp lead this theatrical cut through dramatic waves of feelings.
 
MOVIE MIRACLES
Slow: The entire gamut of deep human feelings. Nostalgia, wonder, passion, hope, all in a rapture of expansive orchestral textures. An inspiring film score of epic proportions.
 
DREAM STATE
Moderate: A hypnotic piano ostinato contrasts with archingly expressive cello phrases which together create a somnolent, deep-relaxing acoustic background.
 
CHILD'S GARDEN
Moderate: The curiosity of childhood, the gracefulness of a ballet, and the perfection of nature are all reflected in this consummate study of simplicity and innocence.
 
ETHEREAL WONDERS
Slow: Hauntingly beautiful, this spacey and plaintive piece of new-age ambiance is the perfect backdrop for sensitive subjects.
 
GOOD-BYES
Slow: The ultimate tear-jerker. An emotional, almost pleading tenor sax is supported by lush strings and a lachrymose fretless bass. A strong statement with a halting cadence. Very dramatic.
 
AULD LANG SYNE
Slow: Honoring the past, this nostalgic melody waves a graceful good-bye with elegance, tenderness and sincerity.
 
AMAZING GRACE
Slow: A smooth, heartfelt arrangement of this classic expression of wonder and resignation.
 
NIGHT WATCH
Slow: Deep and sensitive, this dramatic cut slinks seductively, with twists and turns along the way. Its smooth, haunting sound could underscore any long pan, the crashing of waves, or slow, calculated glances.
 
PASSIONATE SOUL
Moderate: This romantic and slightly melancholic love ballad, imbued with dreamy nostalgia and hopeful romance, virtually swells with passion and devotion.
 
COUNTRY LANDSCAPES
Moderate: The quintessential steel guitar is featured in this easily-paced and expansive score. Evokes vivid images of rolling hills, western prairies, big skies and small towns.
 
MILITARY PROCESSION
Slow: A film score of epic proportions, this inspiring crescendo depicts both heroic duty and stately strength.
 
NOSTALGIC
Slow: A sentimental reverie for violin and guitars. Reminiscent of small towns, by-gone days and fond memories.
 
OLD EUROPE
Moderate: Slavic accordion carefully communicates a romantic mood with a melancholy refrain.
 
EXPRESSIVE GUITAR
Varied: Choose this virtuoso acoustic guitar solo for dramatic, yet thoughtful emotional intensity.
 
INSPIRATIONAL
Slow: Tell a profound story or honor a hushed and sacred moment with the inspiring orchestral grandeur of this stirring film score.
 
MELANCHOLY JAZZ
Slow: Right out of the 1940s and 50s, this deeply pensive and moody number conjures up a dimly-lit lounge, a quiet corner table, and smoky candlelight. The smooth guitar improvisations are masterfully executed on an authentic Gibson L5.
 
WARM
Slow: Heartfelt orchestral warmth, shared among woodwinds and strings, conjures a profoundly intimate and sensitive feeling.
 
SADNESS
Slow: Rich string orchestra sets the stage, then a subtle melancholy guitar weaves its melody among plucked harmonics.
 
DESOLATE
Varied: Two contrasting moods. Wistful, solitary music alternates with a bristling rock theme.
