The Enchantress of the North

Pastoral woodwind septet. Flute melodies interweave, while others playfully arpeggiate underneath and and provide a walking bass line, moving merrily as one unit. Jaunty, thoughtful and enchanting, dancing from a dewy meadow into the dark woodlands of a frightening fairytale, perfect for fantastical films and TV scenes, as well as ads or elevated reality TV: Houses and Gardens of Great Britain or suchlike.

Noel di Gautier

Pastoral flute septet. Various flute lines dance in counterpoint with an enchanting melody and hints of English folk. Regal, jaunty with a darkness beneath. Prim and proper interweaving flutes, perfect bewitching fantasy film music, conjuring up visions of the scary, dark forest scene from a classic Disney film, or the playful trouble-making of a Robin Hood figure.

San Marino

Gentle pastoral orchestral string track with soothing male vocals. Slow, atmospheric intro of harp and percussion establishes a hypnotic plod before male ‘Aaahs’ softly wash over the instrumental bed. 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.

Kon Tiki Nocturne

Funk rock ‘n’ roll guitar track with added jazz flute. Grungey 90s-style guitar intro, drums, jangly guitar, steady bass line and funk guitar follow all at once before a complete change to a funky section with jangling guitars and freewheeling jazz flute. Return to original rock riff with an extra layer of funk guitar. Returns to jazzy section before a jazz/funk break and bright, melodic guitar solo. Upbeat, positive and sunny, would suit an advert featuring fun people getting together, kicking back and having good times.

Serenade in the Summer Residence

Regal classical flute track. Interweaving flutes play in pleasing counterpoint, creating a dense, undulating texture. Jaunty, hopeful and positive, a genteel woodwind track perfect for a Fawlty Towers-style English farcical comedy or as a serious accompaniment to pastoral programming.

African Chill

A nice chunk of traditional African vibes, with arrhythmical counter-rhythms, shakers, xylophone and flute, a perfect ad-length tune for family occasions, exotic products, for some reason I’m imagining an oxo advert. There is an anticipation of togetherness and community, and feelings of positivity, lightness, culture and celebration.

Obstinate

Dramatic orchestral track. A flighty melodic phrase on woodwind, mimicked by strings and punctuated by vigorous percussion, joined by countermelody on woodwind before fuller orchestral melody enters. Excited, suspenseful, tense and nervous. Reminiscent of the Animals of Farthing Wood theme, suitable for a dramatic, high stakes film/TV sequence or an advert for a disaster-averting product.

Bollywood Love

Bollywood -style track with a contemporary R’n’B edge. A snaking sitar line is followed by tablas and an electronic beat. A flute melody joins before moving to a more intense, dramatic orchestral string section. Vocal samples and a change of rhythm with jazzy hip hop drums, before going back to the original sitar motif. Seductive, mysterious, intense and edgy, would suit adverts for products reflecting diverse city environments where the traditional and the contemporary mingle; or a TV/Film sequence referencing an edgy version of the Bollywood aesthetic.

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.

AB Love

Sad and melancholic harp song incorporating the haunting sound of playing children. With sorrowful harmonies and strings building to an ambient conclusion, suitable for TV drama, mystery or pensive reflective moments.
