Embrace the Silence

Melancholy piano waltz. Minor key piano progression to begin, looped under repeated single piano note motif. Higher register introduced and single notes become chords, building texture and anticipation. A piano melody emerges, soft and lyrical, growing higher and more powerful. Introspective and emotional, the sound of heartbreak and longing. Perfect for tense, emotional television and documentaries. A pleading lover, a harsh rebuke…left alone in silence.

Contagion

Dark electronic slow build. Menacing repeated bass synth line like Darth Vader humming a Kraftwerk tune, added synth line slowly expands outward, grows higher in register, fizzling, fleeting electro noises pulsate. Threatening, tense and foreboding, a nerve-wracking wait as the symptoms develop, perfect for a sombre TV/Documentary moment, a suspenseful film scene or cautionary advert.

Ground Zero

Epic other-worldly orchestral track. Sustained melancholy orchestral strings, a special FX blast then a searching ancient violin melody rings out, accompanied by intermittent drums beats and a chorus sample. Frantic, dramatic violin section, choppy and fierce with rumbling drums beneath. A key change heightens the anticipation before a dramatic stop and resurgence at the finish. Urgent, powerful and bombastic, a Prince of Persia-style romp over sacred lands in search of danger, passion and hidden treasures.

BJ

Pulsating electronic track. Fat bassy synth, flashes of synth and electronic glitches start, joined by a regular, throbbing beat, more beats then layers of extra fat synth build the atmospheric tension. Tense, dark and foreboding, full of dark energy, imagine a tense action scene or a nail-biting TV moment.

Dark City Drone

Atmospheric electronic soundscape. Creaking, crackling electronics, sustained synth drones, reverb electronics and industrial sound effects. Dark, ambient and foreboding, subtle background music for a tense documentary.

Acetylene

Brash electronic metal instrumental. Harsh effects-laden guitar intro, drums enters with a gritty bass line. Bubbling bass, drums and choppy guitar section. Dark, heavy effected guitar returns with moody drums and bass. Bullet-like drums and laser guitar of the intro returns. Relentless rhythmic section like a round of gunfire before a drum outro. Dark, visceral, threatening and dirty. Like an electronic Pantera, would suit a hard-as-nails, moody, bruising TV scene or advert for a damaging, no-nonsense product that would wipe the floor with the competition.

Base Jumper

Grungey rock ‘n’ roll instrumental track. Rage Against the machine-style guitar riff, steady drums, followed by a Nirvana-style more downbeat riff with more prominent bassline, ending on the original high-octane guitar section. Angry, powerful, loud and proud, classic 90s rock perfect for energetic TV interludes, adverts for flaming whopper burgers, or for a powerful film scene representing a challenging character in defiance of authority.

Obstinate

Dramatic orchestral track. A flighty melodic phrase on woodwind, mimicked by strings and punctuated by vigorous percussion, joined by countermelody on woodwind before fuller orchestral melody enters. Excited, suspenseful, tense and nervous. Reminiscent of the Animals of Farthing Wood theme, suitable for a dramatic, high stakes film/TV sequence or an advert for a disaster-averting product.

The Chase

Powerful percussive thriller. Relentless cacophonous beats above a threatening descending electronic drone. Dark, atmospheric and tense, a breathless, terrifying race through dark back alleys, our character has chosen flight, but might have to fight…

Drakish

Sombre acoustic guitar and piano track. Percussion, moody repetitive acoustic guitar and piano, dark sustained strings, tense choppy strings. The mood lightens, expanded acoustic guitar and pretty piano. Dark, sombre, quiet, worried a relaxed finish, would suit a tense TV/Film moment of uncertainty and fear before a slight hint of resolution.
