The Birds The Birds

Strange pastoral orchestral string and brass instrumental. Atmospheric drones and fleeting effects-laden brass builds in a slow anticipatory swoosh to a quiet string melody with accompanying orchestral strings. Quick repetitive prog synth chords subtle build tension underneath the otherwise sorrowful melody. Dramatic, suspenseful and strange, an exciting build that ends at it’s peak. An unusual instrumental to suit a quirky TV show, psychedelic film soundtrack or mind-expanding documentary.

A 60s American-style finger-picking bluegrass guitar piece. A warm full guitar sound. Simple major chords are embellished and augmented in a finger-picking style, like an American Richard Thompson. Full, round, warm, rich and hopeful, perfect for a title sequence, an ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’-style 60s film/tv show soundtrack or adverts for life-affirming, healthy products or services.

No nonsense rock ‘n’ roll. Powerful electric guitar intro riff, joined by drums and intense soloing guitar. Straight up drums with noodling electric guitar soloing in bursts. Lighter, more 60s vibe to the next section. Brash, bold and self-assured. Reminiscent of Neil Young’s more rock ‘n’ roll moments, or of a 1970s hyper-masculine rock band or Mick Jagger throwing shapes. A School of Rock-style solid jam for TV or Doc moments where strutting and playing air guitar are required and encouraged.

Pagume

African jazz instrumental. Snaking double bass intro, joined by jazz drums, vibraphone, electric guitar and keyboard playing a rhythmic motif. Change of rhythm, horn blasts then saxophone melody, subtle African-jazz style, effects-heavy electric guitar solo, brass noise before vibraphone motif returns and all play until the finish. Intriguing, exotic and sensual, with hints of Mulatu Astatke and a little Fela Kuti influence, would suit a travel documentary or Film/TV scene evoking the spirit of a hot night in urban 1970s Africa.
