Experimental electronic track. Slow, warped, ambient chords grow in volume and brightness, underpinned by a heartbeat like pulse. Piano notes and colourful synth chords emerge and a female vocal sample adds a strange, other-worldly atmosphere. Woozy and peaceful, like a Jai Paul track, nostalgic, beautiful and enigmatic. Would complement an off-kilter documentary or dreamy film scene.
Endlessly Haydn Eggs
Quirky woodwind instrumental with experimental vocal effects. Sparse cello intro joined by pizzicato strings in jerky counterpoint. Woodwind enters with breaths used to percussive effect.

Playful and lighthearted with a rich and warm tone, perfect for a nature documentary or a comedic, mysterious Film/TV scene.
Acoustic guitar and piano track with experimental elements. Gentle acoustic guitar punctuated with electronic noise and water sounds.

Noise Water Beats
Experimental Lo-Fi Hip Hop track. Ambient sounds with a degrading, crackling quality, kitchen pottering, water whooshing, industrial machine-like noises, joined by resonant piano chords and crunchy beats. 90s, Hip Hop beats drive the track, with looped piano chords and background noise a constant. Mysterious, experimental, chilled and darkly playful, like exploring the Looney Tunes Haunted House, off-kilter beats and samples to suit a Vice news style documentary or contemporary urban filmmaking.
The Militant Upcycle
Bloopy, psychedelic electronic track. Gentle, reverb-laden synth patterns, repeated, morphing into a noisier sound, growing more intense. A wash of fuzzy, atmospheric noise drowns out the synth melodies. Hints of My Bloody Valentine, Stereolab, Broadcast and Air, sepia-tinted electronics mingle with harsh noise in a satisfying contrast. Warm, gentle, searching and plodding to begin with, more intense, powerful and expansive as the track progresses. Perfect atmospheric film or documentary music, retro-futuristic and edgy, reminiscent of the Lost in Translation soundtrack.
Bloopy electronic with feedback and sound effects. Opening synth phrase on repeat, creating a sense of propulsion. Noise and deep, grounding sound effects create a dark, murky atmosphere.

Driving, hopeful and tense to begin with, then abstract, intense and overwhelming. Perfect for a sci-fi world or frightening documentary about the future of humankind.

The soundscape brightens with more melodic drones and reflective synth lines introduced. Thoughtful, introspective, yet vast and expansive, a world turning inside and out. Suitable for an intense, mind-expanding documentary, or for suspenseful or darkly dramatic TV moments.

The Wicker man meets Green Man Festival, perfect for a fantastical film moment, a trippy woodland adventure, a Wicker Man-style , or nature documentaries.
