Completely different than the last piece we released, this is yet another collaboration between my brother Abel and myself. The "Horror" genre of music is new for both of us, but I think we captured the tone pretty well.

I love how eerie the piano is! and the strings compliment it well. Good work!

CainRedfield responds:

Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it :)

This is pretty good, there's not too much going on and it's got a very consistent feel. But towards the end there, you drop it ever so slightly and go DUM DUM DUM DUM and then when it loops you can notice it.

CainRedfield responds:

Not sure I completely understand what you mean by "DUM DUM DUM DUM". But yeah, I wrote this piece just after playing A Machine for Pigs, so this piece, whether consciously or not, was inspired Jessica Curry. I'll concede that this isn't my greatest piece, but I think I still did a pretty good job of getting what I wanted from it.

This has a calm feel to it, kind of sad but mysterious at the same time. Really cool :D

CainRedfield responds:

Thanks! It's definitely different than what I usually write, but I'm really happy with it :)

I like this tune very much, it sounds like it would belong as a BGM for a game.
I`m not too comfortable with the way the loop transfers though. Other then that i like it very much.
keep up the great work!

CainRedfield responds:

Thanks, really glad you like it! Yeah, now that I think about it, the transfer doesn't feel as smooth as it could. I may go back and try to soften that out a little more and give it a better looping feel.
