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.

Armageddon Voucher

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. Grows in volume and intensity before the noise drops out halfway through. The synth idea drops out and woozy, dreamlike synth drones are drowned out by harsh electronic feedback noise. 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.

Subtle sustained woodwind added, along with sparkling percussion and orchestral strings, tambourine and flute. Calm, peaceful with a hint of excited anticipation. The Wicker man meets Green Man Festival, perfect for a fantastical film moment, a trippy woodland adventure, a Wicker Man-style , or nature documentaries.

SH_Chimes

Spacey drone soundscape. Electronic drone like a radiophonic sound experiment builds to include brass and orchestral instruments, suddenly situating us in outer space. Shifting chords give a note of hope and positivity, pizzicato orchestral strings tip-toe on the floating drone bed. Strings reach a minor chord, a hint of danger before a quiet resolution. Meditative, floaty and dreamy, a calm and peaceful journey through the quiet of space with hints of tension, perfect for a documentary about celestial bodies or a human drama on the big screen.

Fly Paper

Experimental pop with vocals. Breathy, reverb-laden vocals over Dirty Projectors-style noodling electric guitar, unpredictable rhythms and rattling percussion. Sparse, washed out electric guitar chords replace vocals over jerky percussion. Repeats. Thoughtful, dreamy and romantic, perfect for a reflective indie film scene or nostalgic TV drama outro.

It’s Just What I Think

Nostalgic soundtrack to kids playtime. Naive intro on warm, retro keys. Joined by sound effects, tinkling cans and crunching paper. Vocal ‘Ooohs’ enter with uplifting drums, interrupted by spoken word samples. A steady drum beat, keys and percussive tin can groove settles in, sounding like a microscopic recording of ants in work in the backyard. A new synth-led section brings fantasy, twinkling lights and gurgling sound effects, before a return to the melody with added percussive effects. Innocent, hopeful and nostalgic, suitable for a heartwarming advert looking at families, kids and the joys of childhood.

The Birds The Birds

Strange pastoral orchestral string and brass instrumental. Atmospheric drones and fleeting effects-laden brass builds in a slow anticipatory swoosh to a quiet string melody with accompanying orchestral strings. Quick repetitive prog synth chords subtle build tension underneath the otherwise sorrowful melody. Dramatic, suspenseful and strange, an exciting build that ends at it’s peak. An unusual instrumental to suit a quirky TV show, psychedelic film soundtrack or mind-expanding documentary.

A Happy Death

Solemn atmospheric piano-led track with orchestral strings. Starts with a string drone that builds in force and dissonance. Single piano and glockenspiel notes tinkle on the edges. This fades out and is replaced by regular melancholy piano chords with ambient percussive rattles and mouse-like squeaks adding a layer of intrigue. Intense and melancholy yet playful, an unusual combination of sounds to suit an off-kilter film or quirky yet sombre advert.
