Roots (Suite)

Acoustic guitar and piano track with experimental elements. Gentle acoustic guitar punctuated with electronic noise and water sounds. Joined by warm piano and hints of playfully subtle saxophone, minor chords growing in intensity and turning to major for a hopeful finish. Mysterious, cheeky and subversive, brings to mind a magical woodland scene of trees going walkies while your back is turned. Perfect for TV/Film/Docs, pastoral settings and subtly powerful storytelling.

Bed version is more intimate, featuring more raw, sparse acoustic guitar, brings out the scratchy, barely-there violin and teasing background noise.

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.

A Strange Economy

Atmospheric electronic instrumental. Layers of ambient drones suspended in mid air with hints of harmony emerging. Calm, peaceful and dreamy, suitable for a seemingly calm documentary or tv sequence with slightly shifting, moving and wandering, like a raft adrift on the ocean.

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.
