Tense orchestral track. Piano intro, chiming marimba, melancholy lyrical cello solo, threatening piano chords and deep, dangerous double bass builds to more tense, dynamic section. Wailing violins and high piano notes spell an underlying threat. Intriguing, suspenseful and chilling at times, murder-mystery music, would suit a tense film scene or an elegantly violent high society thriller.
Gentle acoustic guitar track. Emotional acoustic guitar, soft atmospheric electronics, breezy, subtle drums, and delicate strings. Tender, heart-warming and romantic, perfect for an pensive TV/Film scene, an emotional goodbye or an advert for a caring product.
Acoustic folk/country instrumental. Bluegrass acoustic guitars, jaunty fiddles, rollicking drums and hand claps, jangly mandolins and surly double bass. Upbeat, energetic and earnest, a jangly folk number to suit adverts or TV/Film/Doc scenes trying to keep it country.
Caribbean-influenced instrumental. Steel drum melody over laid back reggae rhythms, warm keys, skanking electric guitar, and easy double bass. Chilled and calm with summer vibes, perfect for a summer advert or TV/Film background music in a tropical or Caribbean setting.
Relaxed jazz/lounge instrumental. Easy breezy intro of soothing retro keys, plodding double bass and shuffling drums, Then woozy, effects-laden guitar, psychedelic keys and warm, lazy brass. Grows in volume and power to an enveloping brass section. Calm, chilled, expansive and hypnotising, a jazzy dart of tranquillising calm for TV/Film/adverts.
A free jazz build on piano, drums and orchestral strings. Shifting sustained orchestral strings growing increasingly mysterious, jazz double bass and bongos. Jazz drums introduced, snatches of solo melody on violin. Taken down a notch by a cool drum solo before a violin and piano take solos accompanied by shuffling drums and energetic bongos in an improvised free jazz homage. Ambient at first, then searching, mysterious and intriguing and intense and finally reckless and daring, suitable for TV/Film tension-building or for a thrilling moment of release.
Bouncy piano and brass track. Two distinct moods in one piece. Slow, atmospheric piano section begins, before taking us on a rollicking ride on a gypsy caravan, bursting into playful oom-pah-pah piano, trumpet and double bass section with humorous vocal ‘hups’ and ‘moos’. A drum break, then piano solo with hyperactive ascending piano trills and a brass accompaniment. Ends on the thoughtful, wistful slow section once again. Pensive at first then jolly, brash and fun, would suit an advert with a distinct change in mood, from sophisticated European philosophising to a crazy Balkan farm party where the goat is driving a tractor into a barn full of chickens and trumpets.
Relaxed reggae/jazz track. Mellow, plodding bass with a slow guitar skank to start. Laid back brass enters, piano solos around the same riff, followed by a strange meandering reverb-heavy sax solo. All then riff together to an unexpected electronic ending. Warm, relaxed, jazzy yet sparse, subtle reggae to suit a blissed-out advert or Film/TV scenes of lazing on a Caribbean island, or chilling in a hot and hazy inner city block party.
Balkan-style instrumental. Sustained string note builds anticipation, piano motif and drums enters underneath, excitement builds. Strings become louder and earthier in tone. Balkan-style melody enters on choppy violins with double bass drums and piano accompaniment. Grows with frenetic energy, soaring, squeaking violins, melodies intersecting. Dramatic change of tone: complete slow down with drunk double bass and woozy violin swaying drowsily between notes. Shrill piano joins adding jazzy flourishes, all build back to previous upbeat, ramshackle melody. Dramatic, surprising, reckless and intriguing, suitable for a rollicking TV advert or Film/TV/Doc scene, or a strange party scene, where our character is disorientated and disconcerted by the madness happening all around, dropped unexpectedly into a quirky unknown world.
Chilled instrumental jazz track. Shuffling drums, downbeat piano chords, thoughtful piano melody with a jazz tonality. Brass enters, repeated a piano phrase. Melody repeated on piano, joined by Rhodes piano, double bass, punctuated by brass notes. Dreamy section, woozy brass, lightly strummed electric guitar, delicate piano motifs, chilled drums with Ethiopian jazz influences and bright chords. All join on relaxed version of original melody. Relaxed, warm and a little bit mysterious, perfect background music for a curious documentary or for a laid back yet reflective Film/TV scene.
