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.

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.
