High-octane EDM. Fast-paced build up, laser synths build with increasing tension, action movie-style. Drops to more D’n’B/Trap-style beat with hight pitched synths and a foreboding atmosphere. Danger is never far away with threatening vocal samples and squelchy, murky effects. A frantic synth build before another drop. Tense, dark and dynamic, sounding like the Chemical Brothers doing futuristic electronica for a menacing onscreen fantasy world.
Atmospheric solo piano. Chiming, resonant piano chords with hazy delay. Dreamlike, serene and reflective, perfect for a sombre TV drama or serious, cautionary documentary about climate change or some impending disaster.
Alt versions available with added atmosphere and fizzling static.
Lush orchestral track. Simple, questioning piano introduction leads to sweeping, pastoral strings before a full orchestral mid-section with developed piano melodies and playful woodwind and brass blasts. Hopeful, romantic and soaringly positive, 1980s soap opera meets the Animals of Farthing Wood, romance with a dash of danger.
Melancholy harp with orchestral strings. Repeated harp motif, joined by a swell of orchestral strings. Melody doubled on piano while suspenseful strings flit above. Woodwind and harp interlude before a fuller rendition of the melody. Emotional, thoughtful, and slightly dark, a wintry, pastoral instrumental, suitable for TV/Film dramas set on the moors, or the troubled mind of the protagonist.
Dark atmospheric electronics. Quiet, desolate intro of electronic drones and feedback. Strange percussion creeps in with wonky bending notes sounding like a drunk cello. The instruments are swamped by a wave of electronics. Tense, mysterious, frightening and other-worldly, suitable for a strange, supernatural TV drama or a trippy movie scene.
Spacey drone soundscape. Electronic drone like a radiophonic sound experiment builds to include brass and orchestral instruments, suddenly situating us in outer space. Shifting chords give a note of hope and positivity, pizzicato orchestral strings tip-toe on the floating drone bed. Strings reach a minor chord, a hint of danger before a quiet resolution. Meditative, floaty and dreamy, a calm and peaceful journey through the quiet of space with hints of tension, perfect for a documentary about celestial bodies or a human drama on the big screen.
Orchestral action-film music. Fast pulse of orchestral strings, guitar and drums builds anticipation. Electronic elements introduced to the pulse, creating tension. Orchestral strings begin a repeated motif with electric guitar crying out on top. A sudden break before creepy meandering strings are introduced before a return to a suspenseful orchestral whole. Nerve-wracking, threatening and relentless, driving soundtrack to a high-stakes TV/Film scene, or a humourous advert referencing this genre.
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.
