All of Us

Gentle orchestral build. Sustained orchestral strings shimmer over sparse piano chords. Soothing, childlike melody introduced on glockenspiel-like keys, repeated. Melody drops out, leaving a wash of celestial strings shifting between chord colours mid-air. Peaceful, comforting and inspiring, perfect ambient music for a spacey film/TV scene or nature documentary or advert for a wholesome, life-saving service.

Martial Law

Orchestral build with electric guitar. Languid violins suspended, cello adds depth before choppy strings drive the track forward. Tension builds with relentless strings against shifting chords. Choppy strings joined by punchy electric guitar bursts building, punctuated by drums rolls, rolling back to exposed string stabs. Tense, nerve-wracking and threatening, perfect suspenseful music for an action movie scene or audacious TV drama finale.

In Dry, Glassy Air

Mysterious solo piano track. Busy, melancholy piano melody over sparse, broken chords, moving between major and minor, from darkness and confusion to moments of light. Simple, curious and reflective, like an conversation with yourself, would suit a thoughtful, wintry TV/Film moment or puzzling documentary scene.

Life

Balearic EDM. Modulating synth intro, light beats join. Fat synth added before a trance section. Heavy EDM build before a drop to wonky synths, fat, brash synth lines and trap beats. Builds again to a groovy, slightly disco section. Another euphoric build to the end. Upbeat, urban and slightly dark, suited to an aspirational fashion advert aimed at pretty young things, or a thrilling advert for a TV show or nail-biting sports coverage.

Leggo

EDM instrumental with trap beats. Chipmunk vocal samples introduce a fat EDM synth build with trap beats and female spoken word samples. Gives way to flowing harp samples before a dark trap beat section. Repeats. Melodic bell-like beat section to end. Tense, moody and brash, a slightly threatening build suited to a trailer for an action-packed thriller of a TV show, or a brooding urban advert for streetwear.

Kronos

Piano and orchestral string build. Orchestral strings undulate under soaring strings building to a powerful percussive section with vocal-like electronic samples and continuing epic strings. Quiet section with vocals then percussion rejoins building anticipation and tension to a multi-layered textural soundscape. Contrasting soft piano section to finish. Strange, dark and intriguing, pagan sounds reminiscent of singular Scandinavian pop like the Knife. Perfect for an onscreen threat or a bold, epic and uncanny film or TV scene.

Old Roots

Melancholy solo piano track. Thoughtful, yearning piano melody over simple, repeated two-note patterns on piano. Grows in volume and intensity with lower register piano accompaniment and added interest with Bach-like modulation. Slow, solemn and restrained, a desolate piece, perfect for a quiet onscreen tragedy or a rain-sodden, lonely, rural scene of sparse neglect.

Stockholm

Orchestral action-film music. Fast pulse of orchestral strings, guitar and drums builds anticipation. Electronic elements introduced to the pulse, creating tension. Orchestral strings begin a repeated motif with electric guitar crying out on top. A sudden break before creepy meandering strings are introduced before a return to a suspenseful orchestral whole. Nerve-wracking, threatening and relentless, driving soundtrack to a high-stakes TV/Film scene, or a humourous advert referencing this genre.
