Sorry

Melancholy trap with orchestral strings. Sombre piano chord intro, trap beats drop. Woozy bass synth unsettles. Flickering beats, breathy vocal samples and austere orchestral strings add complexity. Determined and driven yet slightly sentimental, perfect for the reflective aftermath of a bittersweet and decisive onscreen moment; don’t look back as you walk away.

Lupus

Slow-moving orchestral track with electric guitar. Soaring, held strings held over slowly shifting piano chords. Single notes on electric guitar, solid rock drums and emotional strings added, breaking the tension but adding melancholy drama. Powerful and frustrated yet rousing and dramatic, love-struck anticipation and angst, perfect for a bittersweet TV/Film/Doc scene or inspiring advert full of human struggles.

Happy Days (Suite)

Slow searching piano and solo violin reminiscent of “Spiegel im Spiegel” by Arvo Part. Sweet, innocent,yearning, with a powerful emotional impact.

Lumieres du littoral

Acoustic guitar and glockenspiel interlaced in a sweet, simple melody. Guitar and glockenspiel interplay, accompanied by dreamy sustained glockenspiel notes. Rolling cymbal and a change of melody hark a new, more urgent mood. An intimate guitar and drum break, then intertwined guitar and glockenspiel end the journey. Powerfully gentle, wistful and full of love, imagine an scene or advert suggesting childlike innocence, the birth of something special or a journey full of wonder.

The Real Business

Solo jazz piano. Slow-paced, measured jazz piano chords, starts gently, growing in intensity throughout with clashing and resolving chords ebbing and flowing, like inner turmoil. Romantic, thoughtful, wretched in equal measure, perfect for a quiet, pensive film moment, our troubled character unable to decide a course of action in love.

Farewell Lionhead

Solo jazz piano. Thoughtful, slow-paced jazz piano chords, old-fashioned jazz meandering, feeling semi-improvised with passages resolving on sweet chords or questioning chord clusters. Melancholy, pensive and full of longing, would suit a classic film scene, a là Casablanca, lonely hearts gaze into their whisky sodas…nobody understands like the piano player.

Riviera Swing

Melancholic with a playful edge, with honest acoustic guitars and a piercing violin performance that create a nice tune with a middle/southern European feeling. Will play well both in slightly over the top romantic comedies and generally in applications where a classy yet stereotypical representation of romance is needed.

Start again

Sincere and relaxed, with piano, glockenspiel, and vocals that make for an acoustic pop song. It follows a common structure stanza/chorus/stanza/chorus, alternating vocals with glockenspiel to sustain the refrain. Peaceful and serene, it will play well as title track and background for advertising.

Nice Idea

Tender and melancholic, featuring an arpeggiated piano wrapped by a strings arrangement that make use of modern day film scoring techniques to deliver a short theme, and develop it in just 1 minute and 20 seconds. Starts with piano, and after second 40 the strings take over. It will suit short form advertising and film trailers where the music is needed to help sustaining the emotional arch of your story.

No Sun, No Stars

Delicate and light, no frills piano solo theme that falls into romantic and emotional domains. It changes to a mildly more playful accent in the middle sections, but overall keeping an overarching melancholic feeling. Performed with a truthful and honest human touch.
