Dark trip hop with orchestral strings. Dark, rippling harp sample then urgent, choppy cello over swirling synth pads. Choppy violins repeat the tense melodic riff over trip hop beats and vinyl scratching and subtle hip hop vocal samples. Cool and self-assured in the face of danger, perfect for a nerve-wracking TV drama, a dramatic documentary or sombre content.
Hopeful orchestral track. Delicate horn drone rings out, introduces choppy violins building suspense, lush orchestral strings swell, tinkling bell-like effects and anticipatory drums build before a twinkling percussive ending. Inspiring, atmospheric and brimming with warmth and hope, reminiscent of Coca-Cola’s iconic Christmas advert, or a joyful episode of Planet Earth, perfect for nature programming, inspiring adverts or wholesome family TV.
Playful, percussive, pizzicato orchestral string track. Magical swooping strings and choppy, characterful violins duel over a swirling bed of orchestral hum with plucked violins and dynamic double bass adding further layers of texture. Quirky, pastoral and full of giddy anticipation, perfect for a nature programme on the fleeting buzzing of insect life, or equally suitable for a Christmas segment building seasonal excitement.
Beautiful, emotional piano track with violin and clarinet. Chiming, resonant Satie-style piano joined by tender violin and warm, moving clarinet. Piano chords stop before an emotive new section is revealed, with soaring violin and heartfelt clarinet answering back, like a lovers duet. Passionate, stirring and inspiring, yearning music for a TV/Film scene or thoughtful documentary piece.
Violin instrumental in waltz time. Two violins play an Irish-style repeated folk melody, intertwining, bowing with a rough and ready quality. Plaintive, melancholy and mesmeric, a fusion of Irish and Middle Eastern tonality, perfect for a documentary about either part of the world, or a hypnotic onscreen dance of cultures.
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.
Ambient electronics with piano and strings. Bleepy electronic intro with subtle, chiming piano notes cutting through the soundscape. Strings creep in before a powerful, low-register strings swell overwhelms the track and radio samples add a layer of intensity and discord. Tense, ambient and emotional, dramatic background music for a hard-hitting documentary or uneasy TV drama.
Tense piano and string tracks with effects. Murky and atmospheric, repeated, tension-building piano melody over stark, melancholy strings and a wash of cool ambience. Tense, nerve-wracking and uneasy, perfect haunting soundscape for a crime documentary or a melancholy TV drama.
Folk fusion instrumental on Cretan lyra and fiddle. A cirucular melody on Cretan lyra is doubled on fiddle and joined by subtle percussive hand claps, sounding at once like Austrian mountain folk without the yodelling and like a weaving Middle Eastern melody. Thoughtful and open yet formulaic in its structure, wandering music for an epic nature walk, perfect for a travel or nature documentary.
Slow, emotive piano track with violin and clarinet. Sparse, atmospheric piano, chords resonating, single piano notes ringing out above. Passionate violin enters with long, languid notes full of yearning. Clarinet takes over on melody, before both intertwine for the final section. Heartfelt, gentle and melancholy, perfect tender soundtrack to a moving Film/TV scene.
