10,000 Steps

Jittery acoustic track. Percussive intro with delay effects on acoustic guitar and synth effects. Building anticipation, repetitive electric guitar and dynamic percussion. Guitar starts to move to a darker place, creating a sombre mood. Guitar noodles over ann atmospheric drone and clattering percussion, the shifting chords altering the mood, ending on spacey sound effects. Dreamy, dynamic and strange, suitable for a tense TV scene, inner turmoil, a noisy internal monologue, a decision to be made.

French Waltz

Melancholy piano track. Anticipatory block piano chords, building to a crescendo then fading…a morose melody is introduced over the plaintive chords. Chords turn to wave-like broken chords undulating rapidly beneath the melody. A sombre melody takes off, building to include some subtle brass accompaniment, reminiscent of french accordion music. Dark and sullen, yet romantic and searching. Suitable for a rain-soaked walk home after a loveless encounter on TV/Film; a sad and lonely character who still yearns for an old flame.

Full Moon

Atmospheric piano with effects. Heavy block piano chords with building resonance, soft single piano notes, delay and reverb effects creating a stormy swell of sound. As the sound builds, piano overtones ring out, with higher register chords adding to the colour palette. Slow-paced, reflective and enveloping, with a hint of hopefulness, perfect background music for a wordless, emotional Film/TV scene, matching a desolate, open-ended landscape.

Wild Horses

Uplifting acoustic guitar instrumental. Fast-paced strummed acoustic guitar riff. Drums and additional guitar lines added, sounding like light humming, building a sense of anticipation and joy. Hand claps, bass guitar and extra percussion add depth. Ends of quietly triumphant cymbal crash. Happy, carefree and optimistic, clothes hanging out to dry on a fresh summer’s day, a yappy dog frolicking in the grass, suitable for an easy-going, hopeful montage on TV/Film, or on an advert for a friendly kids product or service.

Season Creep

Atmospheric string and piano build. Ephemeral strings, echoing beat intro, gentle piano notes, strings drone building anticipation. Piano chords then opens up with sustained strings, drums, guitar and tambourine. A quiet section, the best remains then drops out, just piano and light strings to finish. Determined, ambitious, striving and positive, would suit an advert for a powerful, reliable car, or a success against the odds on TV/Film.

Sad But Hopeful

Emotional piano-led track. Sparse piano intro, joined by melancholy orchestral strings. String swell, subtle drums and a rhythmic piano motif, growing in confidence and strength. Slowly building, dialogue between strings and piano. Effects-laden piano gives a cold electronic edge. Reflective, yearning and questioning, would suit a TV/Doc sequence of high emotional intensity or a pensive moment on film.

Piñata (Suite)

Fun brass and guitar romp. Drums and energetically strummed acoustic guitar intro with piano chords. Brass enters, playing a punchy, upbeat repeated phrase. Track builds, instruments doubled to an abrupt, triumphant finish. Fun, happy, energetic and celebratory, would suit a fun TV montage, our characters plotting a hilarious surprise, or the Bananas in Pyjamas planning a secret birthday party. Also suitable for feel-good family summer adverts.

That’s for Eating With

Quirky instrumental. Dramatic opening, sustained keys and brass, sounds like the electronic rainbow blasts of Animal Collective. Gives way to a meandering jazz saxophone joined by a brass blast then an unexpected quirky percussive section with piano and a big build, all instruments in, like the finale of a stadium rock concert. Sparse breathy saxophone section before another epic blast of noise. Solo sax then all instruments in, strings, drums, percussion, vocals and brass with drum crashes and wallops before a peaceful end. Bombastic and epic with slow, thoughtful sections, a fun mix of styles and moods, would suit a silly Film/TV scene humorous advert for a bonkers product.

Eastern

Calm yet intoxicating eastern-style track with acoustic instrumentation. Guitar, vocal samples and varied percussion, including tambourine and hand drums, build an intense atmosphere that feels like an improvised jam on a single guitar theme. Subtle background strings add depth. Reminiscent of Andorra-era Caribou as well as North Indian Classical Music, but with a hint of the Middle East, suitable for a mysterious atmospheric build.
