Take Point (MAIN)
Perfect for news, informational spots and when your blood pressure is measured in PSI. Nervous, hit-filled, time-based rhythmic bed that would be a metaphor for a clock ticking if it didn't also have actual clock noises in it as well. Starting with a plucked muted guitar that starts with a simple rhythm that begins piling sounds/rhythms on like a prison cafeteria cook: staccato violins, the aforementioned clock noises, metallic crashes, powdered potatoes and low piano hits to create a stab-laden, tension-provoking anxiety-fest. @:32 the mood calms down into a background-like undercurrent of busy strings, muted guitar rhythms and ticking mechanisms. After a fake-out powerdown/drop @:55 the cut explodes into a full-on, pounding build to a cacophonous calamity. Good for bomb diffusing (successful and not-so-much) and investigations.

The Watchers (MAIN)
Stress-inducing ticking and clock-like percolating bed of ostinatos that suggest the passage of time, mystery, showing evolution or building suspense. Starting with percussive ticking (finger snaps and clock sounds), low piano hits and a staccato synth/guitar arpeggio that repeats throughout the first :30, this cut grows more insistent and dangerous-sounding as it adds orchestral strings, reverbed piano and pounding drums, leaving very little doubt that a child has gone missing, our water is being poisoned or you're really regretting naming your dog "Alexa" right about now. @:31 the mood calms, returning to the repeating piano/synth ostinato with a heartbeat-like kick drum, that comes in and out of focus against a shapeless, cloud-like mist of threatening synths and reverbed piano melody until the pounding, driving strings/drums return @1:33. Good for both technology AND environmental crises, time running out, crime investigations and solving which Alexa pooped in the closet.

Wirecutter
Cut the blue - no - the red wire!" Against a metallic, alarm-like background, layers of different-metered beds of mechanical ticking and clock-like pulses grow more complicated and disorienting, adding orchestral horns/train noises that build to a dissonant, tense climax @:25.

Basement Murder (...
Scary. Sexy. Suspenseful. Various beds of rhythm-based, heavily-processed women's vocals. Closer, intimate-feeling whispers provide a ticking, breathing, pulsing clock-like bed of movement, suggesting sexual tension or the most attractive speech impediment ever. Slow, lazy atmospheric breathing @:28 accelerates against waves of thrumming electronic buzzing suggesting technological mystery and danger. An explosion @1:20 starts a bed of fast, ghostly and disjointed whispered utterances that suggests confusion, psychosis and very confusing phone sex. @1:34 the dry "ticking"? starts and heightens the suspense. Good for mysteries, crime stories and when time is running out on finding a missing asthmatic woman.
