The Art of Dreaming

Atmospheric build with piano and orchestral strings. Sustained strings build anticipation, joined by a repeated piano phrase ringing out hopefully. Slow build to include prominent string swells and bubbling, dynamic electronics. Hopeful, inspiring and positive, like a more chilled Chariots of Fire, epic but without the climax. Would suit a decisive TV/Film moment or a slow-moving, heart-warming advert.

Heuristic

Moody electronic intrigue. Pulsating electronic beats, anticipatory synth strings, fizzling synths punctuated by throbbing beats. A plinky plonk melody enters, the repeated synth notes building tension. Choppy orchestral strings, fleeting echoing synth and crackling feedback. Mysterious, suspenseful and nerve-wracking, perfect for a tense TV/Film scene, sneaking around corners, tip-toeing across creaky floorboards, trying to remain invisible because the consequences could be grave.

Kuzka’s Mother (Suite)

Electronic orchestral string fusion. Orchestral string intro with single delay-effect piano notes building anticipation. Breaks into 90s trip hop drums with dramatic orchestral strings, piano chords and a dirty synth line. Synth break, back to the string motif. Final section is without strings, beat-driven breakdown. Glamorous, dangerous and sexy, a 90s throwback with a modern edge, where Massive Attack meets Clean Bandit, would suit a slick car advert or could bring some glamour to a gritty British TV show or film about modern youth.

Version available without lead strings.

1 min and 30 sec ad length version available.

String stem track available.

Always Angry

Pulsating electronic thriller. Electronic horn-like sustained blasts, clanging sound FX, harsh drum machine. Ascending orchestral strings signal intriguing danger. A thoughtful, desolate electric guitar solo before a return to the relentless electronic sirens. Strings build again and electric guitar returns to finish. Automatic, inhuman, threatening and brash, the sound of a prison watchtower and the rhythmic plodding of prisoners boots, would suit a dramatic thriller on TV or Film.

Maxwell’s Demon

Piano-led orchestral/beat mash-up. Jazz drum intro, choppy jazz piano motif, driving drums. Orchestral strings join, smoothing out the disjointed piano, followed by edgy trap beats. Strings soar over the beats and grown-up piano. Abrupt ending. Jittery and excited at first, maturing throughout to a confident, epic piece. Would suit an advert for a transformative product, or a tv show interlude. A before and after from likeable and clumsy to impressive, mysterious, measured and powerful.

Soaring Dreams

Delicate yet jumpy and surprising, with a structure that spans through 4 different musical ideas and arrangements throughout the piece. A classical and poignant orchestral start followed by a paced, urged second section. After that, a solid rhythmical element enters the scene and takes the piece at its maximum level of complexity. The last part is left to a somber and saturnine piano with the help of rarefied woodwinds inserts. Overarching all these shifts, a feeling of melancholy and yearning, a flower full of hope.

That Very Thick Cloud Stuck In Your Mind

Dark and dreamy, featuring two distinctive sections: one with warm and fully charged synths, oppressing drones and skewed FX manipulation; the second with a tension-building 4-on-the-floor kick drum and a full a la Gorecki orchestral arrangement. Highly charged psychological thriller it’s the first application that comes to mind, but here there’s definite potential for a far deeper reach within your character’s wicked development. Scary.

Playful Orchestra

Sneaky and playful, with pizzicato strings, brass accents and an alluring theme embodied by woodwinds and violins. Somewhere in between a big orchestra and a folk band, it steadily increases in tempo as it progresses. Great for light and quirky advertising.

End and Beginning

Reflective, dark and searching, with deep repetitive timpani and a sorrowful piano performance that play in the low range of frequencies to deliver a poignant feeling of inevitability. Something big is happening. It steadily grows in intensity as a compelling string ensemble builds and builds. Our protagonist is finally ready to accept the consequences of an inevitable, dramatic reality.

The Tides of Life

Slow and intense, a solo piano tune with a long reverb that conjures images of dreamy, haunted angels. It has a somewhat plasticky feeling that hits somewhere in the middle of being for real or just daydreaming. As it progresses the mood shifts into epic territories using long form drones and high pitched synth instances. We are probably watching passers-by from the top of an evanescent skyscraper.
