This CD features 19 tracks of dark, subtle, atmospheric underscore tracks for dark drama, historical / cultural, fantasy and more.

DARK AGES: This suite contains 12 tracks mostly without any outstanding melody, making it highly usable as background texture and ambient underscore. It leaves room for dialogue and/or other audio elements, without competing. Some of the tracks carry a sense of mystery and danger, whilst others lean more towards horror and sci-fi. All 12 parts share a sense of lurking danger, impending tragedy, conflict and betrayal.

The arrangements are dominated by dark drones and pads, piano, cello and resonant overtones. These dark, ambient, semi-orchestral tracks carry a sense of history and mythology, making these tracks highly suitable as a soundtrack for historical drama, history / documentary as well as medieval/fantasy material, be it films, fantasy games, TV or installations.

DEEP SECRETS: A suite of 7 music tracks primarily made for love story or love drama. The tracks share a common main melodic theme which is hinted in each of the 7 pieces, in various different settings, which make these compositions work well either separately, or together.

This music carries a certain bittersweet feeling, of longing and despair, but also of hope and tenderness. The short piece 'Love Letters' hints at a forbidden love. The much longer 'Love Promise' tells of true love, with it's tender and sparse guitar and piano melodies which later lead into an all-out tearjerker complete with Irish flute and sweeping strings that climax at around 3:45. Then there is the much darker 'Bittersweet' that tells of danger and longing, whilst the short piece 'Mystery' sets the scene for personal reflection or a puzzle.

Throughout the collection, the arrangement is dominated by piano, acoustic guitar, cello, Irish flute and string section, with occasional other instruments.

All in all there are 19 music tracks plus 9 seamless music loops in this collection.
