French Waltz

Melancholy piano track. Anticipatory block piano chords, building to a crescendo then fading…a morose melody is introduced over the plaintive chords. Chords turn to wave-like broken chords undulating rapidly beneath the melody. A sombre melody takes off, building to include some subtle brass accompaniment, reminiscent of french accordion music. Dark and sullen, yet romantic and searching. Suitable for a rain-soaked walk home after a loveless encounter on TV/Film; a sad and lonely character who still yearns for an old flame.

Sad But Hopeful

Emotional piano-led track. Sparse piano intro, joined by melancholy orchestral strings. String swell, subtle drums and a rhythmic piano motif, growing in confidence and strength. Slowly building, dialogue between strings and piano. Effects-laden piano gives a cold electronic edge. Reflective, yearning and questioning, would suit a TV/Doc sequence of high emotional intensity or a pensive moment on film.
