"The dossier is heavily guarded even at night. You must infiltrate headquarters undetected and record the documents on this microfilm embedded in the frame of your eyeglasses, then rendezvous at the designated extraction point by 0700 hours. Good luck agent 014!”

This track was created for Pixel Hero - Prologue (which is seeking funding). The developers needed a ~1:00 sneaky spy theme for some of the covert missions. I love love love anything spy, detective, or noir themed, so I was happy to oblige. This is a loop. The place where it fades out is about the point that it starts over again (without the brassy intro cluster).

This is downloadable, but not very useable. To download loop files for this track, please visit http://sleepfacingwest.tumblr.com/post/121865188400/gl014-sneak-attack

Ooo...I love the drama at the beginning. Interesting mood you got there at :03. I wasn't a big fan of the bizarre, distorted snare sample, but otherwise those chill vibes, strings, and groovy guitar complimented each other well. It would make for an interesting addition to the scene of a movie or something. Although it is very short, I think it needed more progression throughout the piece. There was little discernible structure, and I think it needs more variety in order to be a complete track IMO. That said, I think it would function great as a full-length track. I just think it needs some more climaxes and transitions. Anyway, keep up the good work, man! ;)

Thanks for the review! Typically I try to make short score music pretty underwhelming. It needs to set the mood, but not get in the way of dialogue and sound design that will be happening over the top of it. I was really afraid that if I added too much variation to this it would become annoyingly noticeable when the track came back around again. In your opinion, is this actually a non-issue? I might be limiting myself for very silly reasons!
