Royal Oak

Atmospheric slide and acoustic guitar track. Slow beginning with slide guitar joined by fast broken chords on acoustic guitar building tension with guitar sound affects. A melodic motif on acoustic guitar builds up, joined by slide for the ending. Tense, sombre and dramatic, anticipation builds throughout, like the lead-up to a duel in a Western movie. Perfect for a documentary or Film/TV sequence. You can almost hear the crunch of gravel underfoot and the glint of desert sun on spurs.

Going to Bill’s

Intense acoustic guitar instrumental. Dark, pensive intro growing in speed and intricacy. Quick, repetitive strumming creates a drone effect. Hints of Spanish/Latin American guitar, Western movie soundtracks, as well as Middle-Eastern sounds. Suspenseful, tense and brooding, moving like a seductive dance, would suit onscreen tension on Film/TV or a sombre documentary about seedy goings-on and modern-day cowboys.

Heuristic

Moody electronic intrigue. Pulsating electronic beats, anticipatory synth strings, fizzling synths punctuated by throbbing beats. A plinky plonk melody enters, the repeated synth notes building tension. Choppy orchestral strings, fleeting echoing synth and crackling feedback. Mysterious, suspenseful and nerve-wracking, perfect for a tense TV/Film scene, sneaking around corners, tip-toeing across creaky floorboards, trying to remain invisible because the consequences could be grave.

Electronic orchestral string fusion. Orchestral string intro with single delay-effect piano notes building anticipation.

Straight Outta London

Electronic, hip hop instrumental track with string samples. String samples, dramatic piano chords, crunchy beats, police sirens, ‘ID please’ vocal sample, joined by more samples and a 90s West Coast woozy theremin-like synth line. Tense, urban and highly strung, would suit a tense cop drama or documentary exploring street culture.

Always Angry

Pulsating electronic thriller. Electronic horn-like sustained blasts, clanging sound FX, harsh drum machine. Ascending orchestral strings signal intriguing danger. A thoughtful, desolate electric guitar solo before a return to the relentless electronic sirens. Strings build again and electric guitar returns to finish. Automatic, inhuman, threatening and brash, the sound of a prison watchtower and the rhythmic plodding of prisoners boots, would suit a dramatic thriller on TV or Film.

The Issue Goes Deeper (Suite)

Lurching synth doppler effect creates an atmosphere of uneasy tension. One note rings out, klaxon-like, joined by threatening synth sounds panning across a bleak sonic plain. Hi-hat underpins the score with added suspense. Dark, desolate and unnerving, with a heavy, mysterious atmosphere that suggests an enemy at your shoulder. Perfect for a prison break, an abduction or an escape.

Light version has a longer, more exposed synth note. Simple version only features the doppler effect synth sounds, no central sustained note.
