A Stinger is a very short piece of music that begins and ends within a matter of a few seconds. They are not like a music-loop which is made for looping around and a round to create a never ending piece of music. A "Stinger" has a beginning, a middle-part, and an end. It's not made for looping.
Stingers can be used for many purposes (splash screens, logos, highlights, underlining a point), but the most common use of Stingers is in the transition between scenes. Look at an episode of "Friends". Every time the story moves from one location to another, we see a little shot of the new location, and the music plays a "Stinger".
Strong, steadfast, yet delicate. Persistence with beauty and melodic elegance. Impressionist. Arpeggio ending with touch of dissonance. Mellow. Smooth. "We will outlast this trial and emerge unscathed." Keyboard Sounds, Stingers
Calm, soothing ending to times of trial and adversity. The peace comes from knowing that, in the end, all will be well. Love, grace, and strength comes from accepting challenges and seeking guidance from above. Keyboard Sounds, Stingers
Emergency loop heartbeat with bass synth. A racing heartbeat leads into a dramatic string melody with tympani, very emergency room stuff. An ambulance on a mission to take the casualty to hospital, an orchestral race against time to save a life. Keyboard Sounds, Stingers

An simple but hypnotic synth melody is awash in echoes and filtered panning. A magical space where a moment of personal awakening happens. With its long fade out it is perfect for any long, slow scene change. Keyboard Sounds, Stingers
