Aces High-KM

by Kevin MacLeod

Like a night out on the Vegas strip, Aces High makes your hips swagger with a playful bass line and staccato electric guitar. An organ plays the main theme, but when the song changes to a minor key, a clavichord plucks out the central melod...

Amazing Plan

by Kevin MacLeod

With elements of a quick Russian polka playing in the immigrant section of industrial-era New York City, this piece is mainly in a minor key, but at the halfway point changes to a major key, reversing the feel and tone for a few seconds, be...

Autumn Day

by Kevin MacLeod

A reflective piece with piano, guitar, simplified percussion, and subtle strings, this music is calm and comforting, like a good book and a hot cup of tea. The chord progressions are interesting and repeat often, which gives the piece a mem...

Darkest Child

by Kevin MacLeod

A childlike Celeste plays high notes among a barely audible harp and deep bass. In the second minute the disturbing melody is in a lower register, and strings accentuate the discordant sounds before returning to the high register. The music...

Lone Harvest

by Kevin MacLeod

Calming, Dark, Somber, Unnerving, Uplifting... It looks like an uncommon mix of descriptive words, but this simple piece does a good job of displaying complex emotion.

Modern Piano Alpha

by Kevin MacLeod

Very loud and very discordant contemporary piano piece. It uses halves of the piano alternately.

Movement Proposition

by Kevin MacLeod

Fight scenes and chase scenes. Also good for high energy magic shows.

Niles Blues

by Kevin MacLeod

Slow blues in 6/8. Tasty.

Sneaky Snitch

by Kevin MacLeod

An oboe and a snare drum dance a tantalizing number with the whimsical plucks of a string quartet. The staccato nature of the music suggests walking on tiptoes, while the nasal notes of the oboe flits about almost imperceptibly. In the fina...

Whiskey On The Mississippi

by Kevin MacLeod

With a jumping bass and offbeat syncopation, this is straight from Memphis Beale Street. The Hammond organ and electric guitar play together as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to electric piano.

Cut And Run

by Kevin MacLeod

Modern-style production of a dance/world music fusion. Laser sharp super compressed mix.

No Offense

by Kevin MacLeod

A Peaceful, Uplifting track that creates a sense of calmness and tranquility.
