Brigitte

Acoustic country-jazz track. Acoustic guitar chords and double bass lay down the rhythm for a jazzy acoustic guitar line, country-style violin plays call and answer with guitar, breezy snippets of virtuosic soloing. Playful, cheeky and brazen, suitable for a TV/Documentary segment about good ol’ country life or an advert for mouth-watering, home cooking.

Bed track features acoustic guitar chords, double bass and percussion only.

Time for the Mouse to Chase the Cat

Jolly orchestral caper. Plucky, percussive strings intro joined by dynamic woodwind with playful glockenspiel interludes. Call and answer section between strings and glockenspiel with insistent pizzicato percussion. Fun, quirky and cute, a spritely orchestral cat ‘n’ mouse chase, perfect for an advert for a pesky household problem with an ingenious solution.

In Response

A warm jazz-influenced piano instrumental. A simple call and answer piano introduces the main melodic motif. This theme is developed through the piece into fuller jazz chords and improvised jazzy melodic fills. Slight change in tone then returns to the original motif. Warm, comfortable, secure and wholesome, made for a film/tv soundtrack to an emotional reunion or a goodbye-for-now-, set in a east coast US town as the leaves turn shades of red and gold.

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.

To Sleep

A dark synth pop track with dreamy male and female vocals. A synth pulse introduces male vocals. A dramatic pause before melodic beats drop with layered vocals. Dreamy, mysterious synth drones add tension. A drum and wonky synth break, the vocal chorus returns. A female vocal break ,then call-and-answer with male vocals, before coming together, echoed by the bass line. Synth drones and blobby beats accompany the female vocals an octave higher and male counter melody. Melancholy, tense and dripping in cool anticipation. Dark romance in the city by night. Driving. Coloured lights streak by. Too cool for love.
