Unsettled

Tense orchestral track. Piano intro, chiming marimba, melancholy lyrical cello solo, threatening piano chords and deep, dangerous double bass builds to more tense, dynamic section. Wailing violins and high piano notes spell an underlying threat. Intriguing, suspenseful and chilling at times, murder-mystery music, would suit a tense film scene or an elegantly violent high society thriller.

The End

Sparse piano chords, emotional, sustained strings, moves to repeated piano phrases and single strings line. A resigned conclusion. Pensive, desolate and heartfelt, suitable for the downbeat aftermath of a seismic event on TV/Film, or a warning advert.

Comedy

Slapstick orchestral romp with humorous sound effects. Oom-pah rhythm underpins snatches of playful woodwind melody. This jaunty rollercoaster careers through snatches of percussion, brass and strings. Happy, quirky, ramshackle but slick, the perfect soundtrack to a slapstick pastiche of old movies or cartoons, in an advert or TV/Film setting.

Woodwind Fun

Playful woodwind call and answer. Brass “bass line” gives a foundation to the intertwined flute and reed lines’ jolly game of tag above. Fun, playful, pastoral and old-fashioned, feels like we’re prancing through the countryside with Mr. Toad and friends, or a having a jaunt in a topsy-turvy English hotel by the seaside.

Tango-esque!

An orchestral tango-style number on clarinet, piano and percussion. Piano provides chordal accompaniment to drums and clarinet, with some electronic effects and a drum kit adding a contemporary spin to the traditional tango style. Relaxed, jazzy and modern, but not trendy, this quirky track feels like a European take on tango, and a Woody Allen-style love letter to Europe.

AP Action Live 60 secs

Amazing orchestral production in a frenetic desperate chase. It feels like something massive and cataclysmic is bearing down at you, there was no time to warn anyone or gather anything, the only thing to do was RUN. Is it a monster? Is it a natural disaster? Is it an army? Full orchestra climaxes with a doom laden soft bellow of horns.

AP Comedy Live 60 secs

Amazing orchestral production in a zany comedy farce. It’s a full on circus of errors, the feeling of a scene where everything is happening and anything can happen. Short and sweet, with a pause for effect before a blasting end. Full live orchestra. Suitable for rich comedy moments, classic cartoon and fun adverts.
