Well, that was a pleasant surprise!

Five forwards in one day, from two different screeners! Raised my forward percentage by five points.

I've never posted forwards before. And I just opened a Soundcloud account. I hope this works. If you're interested you can hear the cues at:

D180528DD

CINEMATIC, DRONE-Y INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a large TV Production Company’s NON-Exclusive, In-House Music Library that feeds music directly to the Reality TV shows they produce. Please submit “drone-y,” atmospheric Instrumental Cues in the general stylistic ballpark of the following references: “The Lonely Tomb” True Detective: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BNKoixy8_WM DRONE MUSIC / DARK AMBIENT MUSIC: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mswTS7DphBQ “Deep Space” by Thy Veils: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gqj-84qTT68 “Reflection” by Johan Johannsson https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mq2AUCkUrnA Please send them subtly textured Instrumental Cues with very little to no melodic movement. Your Cues should have a consistent droning quality that delivers an unsettling, moody feeling. Stick to a singular vibe and sound throughout the entire Cue to keep your piece emotionally cohesive from beginning to end. VERY sparse percussion can also be added, but remember, less is more. Simplicity and mood are the keys to this pitch. Your submissions should be about 1:30 in length, give or take. Non-faded endings will work best. Do NOT copy the referenced material in any way, shape, or form. Use it only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed. This company offers a NON-EXCLUSIVE, 50/50 deal. You’ll split any applicable sync fees 50/50. You’ll get 100% of the Master rights and Writer’s share, and the Library will get 100% of the Publishing for any placements they generate. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to submit for this opportunity. Please submit as many Instrumental Cues as you'd like online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis - No full critiques. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59PM (PDT), on Monday, May 28th, 2018. TAXI #D180528DD

And thanks for the compliment.

Thank you cosmicdolphin,

The sounds I used were almost all sounds that I had sampled myself (cymbals, machinery, etc.). I was hoping the cues would sound unique.

Nice work. Especially that you generated your own samples for the cues. Very creative.
