Abandoned Toys "spiraling into the sun" (neoclassical piano music)

Abandoned Toys makes such wonderous neoclassical music, combining small chamber orchestras, unsettling tone clusters of choir, and experimental found sound recordings.  The resulting sounds are quite unique and this band stands out as one of my alltime favorite neoclassical darkwave artists.  The composer responsible for the project, Brett Branning, also has several other projects you can explore through their label website, Mythical Records.

The Synthetic Dream Foundation "trapeze (feat. hannah fury)"

This song is a collaboration between two of my favorite artists, The synthetic dream foundation, and Hannah Fury.  I actually think this is my favorite composition that either one of them has done.  The female vocals are so delicate and mysterious, on top of such gorgeous and lilting neoclassical darkwave piano lines.
