Better Not To Know
Eerie, disturbing and suspenseful. Very ambient. Trance-like repetition of short piano phrases punctuated by string swells. Sparse enough to work with a wide variety of visuals. Two versions are presented, one with the piano detuned and chorused, and one with a more traditional piano sound. Can be used with and without strings, and is easily edited. Think Eyes Wide Shut. Good for drama, crime show, mystery, horror, TV, film, thriller.
