The Gentle Hum of Anxiety
This is the original version. Beginning with manipulated piano synthesizers, a slow bassline soon joins the piece, backed by a synthesizer, this opening theme changes to a second section of different chord changes, all instruments playing it together. A chromatic piano melody enters for the return to the initial harmonic changes. The return to the second section accompanies a new piano melody, and upon a final return to the initial chord changes, the piano quietly and simply improvises over top, all instruments fading out slowly.
