Seriously, you could just put it in an experimental/synth genre. Sounds good, though, but it's TOO SHORT! I don't know how many times something good is posted here but is just too short. Don't be afraid to elaborate and experiment a little.
Thanks to you guys. The reason I asked in this way is because I am experimenting, trying things that I don't know how to do. And I really don't know if I layered too much stuff (which is what I'm learning not to do in orchestral). After I was done I went back to separate stuff.
I started with a drum loop-I don't know the style-like disco, or techno or whatever they call this simple electronic style (I wouldn't know how to do this beat)
But I wanted to do something more filmscore. (not saying I achieved this) by doing a dark ambient sound thing.
So, I just don't know if it hits any target (I know it hits mine as an exercise).
I'll put it somewhere under (morphing Greatzed's idea) Hybrid/experimental. Unless someone has a better category for me.
I used marimba, crotales (pitched down an octave) and percussion toys from GPO. Zebra, Cameleon, Maljsmo, Trilogy.
I recorded and reversed a patch from Zebra. the buzz synth at the end is ES2.
It sounds good to me. Include it on a reel? Dunno. I think matching your reel to the target market makes a big difference. Include it on a demo if the person you are giving the demo to would potentially be able to use it on something. Consumers of custom music have little imagination. They basically want to hear on your demo exactly the thing they need... then, of course, they want you to write something totally different that strikes them in the same emotional way as that demo piece they liked.
Although, I thought there were a few elements that made it sound dated a little bit. A few of the synths I think. Personally, I feel it would present a little stronger as "film music" with some stings. Just something something sparse, some swells or something....
