Drone 1 & 2 (Suite)

Contrasting electronic drone tracks. Electronic feedback, harsh waves of low frequency sound, an electronic wave-like pulse the only rhythm. Dark, uncomfortable and atmospheric, would suit a tense, disconcerting TV/Film sequence.

Drone 2 is more dreamlike, waves of ambient sound, cleansing, meditative, healing.

Sentient

Dark synth track. Mid-tempo distorted synth pulse to start. Dreamy synth washes over the track, added fragments of soft synth melody with fuzzy synth tendrils curling up through the unrelenting, motorik beat. Machines meet nature. Full of suspense and anticipation but with a hint of excitement, a shocking surprise could be just around the corner. Suitable for a tense scene, or as sombre, atmospheric music for a cutting edge documentary.

Ground Zero

Epic other-worldly orchestral track. Sustained melancholy orchestral strings, a special FX blast then a searching ancient violin melody rings out, accompanied by intermittent drums beats and a chorus sample. Frantic, dramatic violin section, choppy and fierce with rumbling drums beneath. A key change heightens the anticipation before a dramatic stop and resurgence at the finish. Urgent, powerful and bombastic, a Prince of Persia-style romp over sacred lands in search of danger, passion and hidden treasures.

Anticipating Something Not So Good

Atmospheric piano and orchestral string track. Delicate, sparse piano intro, choppy orchestral strings, feedback-like string drones building in intensity throughout. Threatening, sombre and foreboding, a post-apocalyptic soundscape for a dark TV/Film/Doc moment.

Alt version features additional squelchy electronics.

Busy Game (Suite)

Hi-tension electronic chase track. Fleeting beats and synth lines, consistent drum ‘n’ bass beats, choppy strings lending intermittent bursts of tension and a chunky synth motif. Change to tense sustained synth, harsher beats, heavier strings before a full blown string section over electronic beats. A key change takes the tension up a notch, beat break before a quieter ending a glassy synth drones, cold strings and piano chords. High energy, full-throttle thriller turns reflective dronescape, as if our protagonist burst through a portal into another dimension. Perfect for a advert or tv sequence where danger is around every turn.

Busy Game 2 is steady, orchestral string-led suspense. A consistent level of threat and tension throughout.

Haunted Music Box

Haunting simple and cinematic, with music box, angelic vocals, piano and orchestral strings, including a searching solo violin. If you are looking for a magical and macabre setting for something you’ve hit gold. This will suit pretty much anything from fantasy adverts to Brother’s Grimm fairy tales. You can almost hear someone narrating over the top. Brilliant.

Before My Time is Done

Hypnotic and earthy, with soft percussive elements, acoustic guitars and a mellow leading fiddle that take us into world/folk territories without being too flashy. Sounds like venturing into the wild unknown but you have all your marbles with you and you know what your are doing. See, if only Leonardo had this music in The Revenant, he wouldn’t have been molested by a bear.

March for a One Armed Nutcracker

Comedy for toy instruments. Sounds like: A riot of toys dancing around the tree at Christmas.

Like a Mantelpiece the Sea

Back room farmyard instrumental, acoustic instruments with a tender yet mischievous melody. Folky but genre-defying. An extension of the soundtrack to Withnail & I.

Ladybirds

Delicate harmonies on strings, with later gentle percussion and theremin-like synthesiser.
