We are in This Together

A searching and melancholic cue led by cello with support from tremolo and straight strings. A perfect short cue to end a satisfying ending to a scene or story. 30 second clip.

The Prayer
The Prayer

Piano only. A sweet and simple cue during a prayer of two men finding a way to love one another despite their sinful ways. Chop off the beginning silence and make a faster fade out for a 60 second clip.

The Dream and Triumph
The Dream and Triumph

A big cue where a sinful man awakes from a dream about it terrible behavior. After he awakes from these haunting images, he finds himself on his knees in prayer to God asking for forgiveness. We find our answer at about the 2:43 mark. The cue contains a lot of elements including a short dream section at the beginning, a prayerful, choir led section, followed by the big, full orchestra moment. Use the whole cue or chop it up to fit your needs. It's like three cues in one.

A mournful and haunting cello solo. This cue was written as we see a racist, misogynist physically and verbally abuse his wife. This dark and sad cue works and is flexible in many down trodden scenes.

Prayer Time with Mama
Prayer Time with Mama

During a son's tormented time, a simple prayer with mom and a reconnecting with God's greatest commandments, our protagonist finds his way back to his calling. The cue features a hopeful message that when we give our faith to the right place all is well. Includes piano, strings, flutes, and oboes.

Oh, Nate
Oh, Nate

The scene follows a man contemplating suicide. It is heavy and extremely sad/mournful. Will work on any type of sad or down trodden scene. It doesn't have a happy ending. Cue includes the string section with a heavy-ish, big room reverb. I was going through an awful time in my life when I wrote and recorded this. The suicide scene plus my personal tragedy produced this. Art imitates life...

I Had a Dream, Dad

A piano led cue where a young boy describes his dreams to his dad. This is a hopeful and wishful cue that has hints of sweetness and innocence.

Contemplative Journey
Contemplative Journey

A searching, reflective, and melancholic cue where many uncertainties lie ahead. This cue originally written as the opening credits scene where our story opens with rampant racism, sexism, and other bigotries. Will our antagonists find their way back to righteousness. This cue asks the question. What is the answer?

Congolese Drums

A short cue featuring the African tribal drum called the Djembe. This cue is reminiscent of traditional tribal dance and ceremonial music. This music generally consists of a strong downbeat, a steady back beat, and an improvised solo.

A scary and tension building cue for a suspense or horror film. A good jump scare at :17. Works great with Halloween themed content as well.

Hopeful Sadness

A beautiful, Irish flute lead cue that sounds sad, but rings of hope for the future. A great fit for a sad scene where our protagonist suffers from some terrible event, but leaves us with a sense that he/she will make it through and be better on the other side of tragedy.
