Mysterious electronic synth track. Repetitive synth intro, bouncy and arpeggiated, with spooky synth whooshes. New section of spookier synth riff, twinkling percussive bells and strings straight out of an old James Bond film, building anticipation. Sustained synth section with shuffling percussion becomes a dynamic, rhythmic synth section. Like Santigold but weird and wonky, topsy-turvy. Plodding yet classy, a real mystery. Intriguing and beguiling, would suit a provocative advert, a flashy product, sexy and stylish but a hint of danger.
Fast-paced alt rock instrumental. A tight heavy metal style electric guitar riff over quick, insistent drums. Short, sharp stabs of sound with elaborate, manic drum fills bridging the gaps. Aggressive, mischievous and incendiary, sounding like Foo Fighters or Queens of the Stone Age, provocative music that spells danger and rebellion. Perfect for badass rule-breakers on TV/Film, or for a ball-busting advert where the status quo is crushed to smithereens.
Dark electronic slow build. Menacing repeated bass synth line like Darth Vader humming a Kraftwerk tune, added synth line slowly expands outward, grows higher in register, fizzling, fleeting electro noises pulsate. Threatening, tense and foreboding, a nerve-wracking wait as the symptoms develop, perfect for a sombre TV/Documentary moment, a suspenseful film scene or cautionary advert.
Epic other-worldly orchestral track. Sustained melancholy orchestral strings, a special FX blast then a searching ancient violin melody rings out, accompanied by intermittent drums beats and a chorus sample. Frantic, dramatic violin section, choppy and fierce with rumbling drums beneath. A key change heightens the anticipation before a dramatic stop and resurgence at the finish. Urgent, powerful and bombastic, a Prince of Persia-style romp over sacred lands in search of danger, passion and hidden treasures.
Dramatic orchestral track. A flighty melodic phrase on woodwind, mimicked by strings and punctuated by vigorous percussion, joined by countermelody on woodwind before fuller orchestral melody enters. Excited, suspenseful, tense and nervous. Reminiscent of the Animals of Farthing Wood theme, suitable for a dramatic, high stakes film/TV sequence or an advert for a disaster-averting product.
Tense orchestral track. Piano intro, chiming marimba, melancholy lyrical cello solo, threatening piano chords and deep, dangerous double bass builds to more tense, dynamic section. Wailing violins and high piano notes spell an underlying threat. Intriguing, suspenseful and chilling at times, murder-mystery music, would suit a tense film scene or an elegantly violent high society thriller.
Sombre, driving string track. Intro of see-sawing sustained strings, sprinkles of plucked acoustic guitar. Intense bass pizzicato enters, builds and drives track. Faster, more urgent section. Repetitive, choppy string motif, powerful string melody enters, builds further with extra string lines and finger-picking acoustic guitar detail. Serious, threatening, brooding and dark, would suit an escalating situation on film, a move from slight threat to real danger.
Stem tracks available.
Tense, beat-driven loopable electronic texture. Dark breakbeat and bass synths. Tense, dark and urban, like the soundtrack to a computer game where we navigate dark, dangerous city streets after dark, dodging bad guys along the way.
Bouncy electronic track. Duo of arpeggiated synth lines, the punchy beat drops, groovy synth line, joined by high-hat drums. Melodic break of 90s-style percussive synth, a beat break, before an outro straight out of a French house track: warm, anticipatory major synth chords and a mellow bassline. Suspenseful at first, excited, upbeat, groovy and fun with a slight element of danger. suitable for a serious action film scene that gains a sense of humour as the action progresses. Or a chase scene or advert of varying moods, with an ever-changing backdrop throughout.
Melancholy waltz on orchestral strings. Pizzicato and legato orchestral strings move like a fast-flowing river over booming and bell-like percussion. Mid section descends into a playful circus before returning to the melody. Heartfelt, playful, wistful, slightly melancholic with a hint of magic, evoking the spirit of a resourceful French orphan or the twinkling delights of an old-fashioned fairground. Imbued with mystery and fantastical possibilities, but never far from danger…
