Macho guitar and synth track. Chiming, fast-paced piano chords with muted percussion underpin the intro with a brash electric guitar melody joining above. Bass guitar introduces a fuller section with solid drums and more guitar. Harpsichord-like synth break imitates the piano chords, all instruments rejoin. Determined, driven and serious, the perfect no-nonsense track for an investigative documentary or neutral commercial.
Bluesy rock ‘n’ roll track. Brazen electric guitar riff and wailing guitar feedback, joined by punchy drums and a funky bass line. A new guitar melody followed by a new section, more electronic, glitchy and sample-heavy, moving into espionage movie territory. Brash, urgent and confident, like Red Hot Chilli Peppers soundtracking a Jason Bourne film, perfect chase music, either by car or on foot, through unfamiliar urban streets, or across continents.
Upbeat rock track. Uptempo electric guitar, bass and drums, classic blues rock with fun vocal ‘woohoo’s. Catchy and engaging, like The White Stripes’ ‘Fell in Love with a Girl’. Loud, brash and ridiculously positive, perfect for an advert for weekend shenanigans, a tasty new beer or a fun foodstuff that can be shared at a big party for all your favourite people. Woohoo!
High energy rock. Tight drums, scuzzy electric guitars, fast paced and heavily compressed. Fast drum break and frantic electric guitars to finish. Upbeat, confident and direct, in-your-face with plenty of Queens of the Stone Age swagger to suit an advert with attitude, Top Gear-style daredevil TV.
Tense orchestral string track. Choppy violins enter with erratic melodic phrases over a foreboding sustained double bass note. Extra layers of strings interrupt each other creating a chaotic ambiance. Screeching violin samples then flurry over drums and a strong, driving, repeated melodic idea, coming to a dramatic finish. Nerve-wracking, threatening and doom-laden, a worrying barrage of string suspense, suited to an action movie scene or advert evoking this sense of exhilarating fear.
Upbeat electronic instrumental. Pulsating beats, fast and fleeting arpeggiated synth and brash, fat synth melody line. Insistent, driving and determined, bold electronic sounds, perfect for high-octane sports coverage, reality TV or as dramatic, anticipatory music for a tension-building advert.
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.
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.
Instrumental rock ‘n’ roll track stomper with attitude. Drum intro followed by punchy guitar riff. Builds in texture with more guitar and drums. Upbeat guitar break with dynamic bass guitar line, before the energetic, raucous chorus resumes. Everything repeats, before an all-out guitar shredder of a finale. Bold, brash and in-your-face, perfect for a bolshy teen drama montage or a high-octane but good-natured car chase.
Punchy electronic track. Steady crunchy beats, chunky synth, arpeggiated shiny synth and a summery chord progression. Determined, focussed, brash and confident, would suit a brazen character onscreen or a self-assured advert for a glamorous product.
