Learning to Walk

Piano track with orchestral strings. Repetitive piano, broken harp chords and scratchy string overtones fades out. Returns with lyrical cello melody and more dynamic piano melody.

After this storm, the clouds part, revealing a softer, more gentle strings section, breaking into a major key, hints of sunshine. Final section is a decidedly sombre string part.

For There is Much to Dare

Atmospheric piano instrumental with subtle strings and electronics. Sustained, dramatic piano notes, another layer of delicate piano bubbles underneath.

Sombre, emotional and quietly, epic, a cinematic soundscape with Philip Glass-like rhythmic piano, perfect to accompany images of nature or a tragic human drama.
