Instrumental classical/jazz track. Strings in conversation, playing melodic cycles. Warm, resonant piano enter, joined by marimba flourishes and a deep, soothing strings melody. Jazz piano chords, and the melody repeated in various registers. Marimba solo over sustained strings and a meandering improv section in the last minute. Earthy, romantic and enveloping, a calming jazz number, reminiscent of sprawling Ethiopian jazz rooted by a strong melody, as well as the gentle, rich Gymnopédie melody. Suitable for a very laid back advert or a pastoral Film/TV sequence set under a beaming winter sun.
Emotional piano and orchestral string track. Broken piano arpeggios accompanied by deep, lyrical strings. Builds passionately to reach the higher register of the piano and the lowest cello notes. Slow-paced, reflective and moving, the melodic simplicity of Satie, coupled with a cool, contemporary vastness, like Sigur Ros. Perfect romantic music for a heartbreaking onscreen moment or for a reflective walk away…
Lyrical solo piano track. Ripples of gentle piano, repetitive descending motifs like rainfall. Grows in intensity, joined by deep, emotive strings. Returns to slowed-down solo piano. Lush, heady and nostalgic, suitable for pensive onscreen longing. Still yearning for lost love but soon the world opens up afresh in the cycle of life.
Slow plodding bass and piano track. Deep double bass notes, repeated piano with delay effects, subtle, slowly shifting sustained strings, sparse percussion. Quiet, intense, concerned, suitable for a tense TV/Film scene, or as moody background music.
Melancholy piano and orchestral string track. Emotional sustained string swells, a deep bed of full double bass with gentle piano notes picked out, heavy with meaning. Slow-moving, introspective, with an almost religious sense of thoughtful wonder, suitable for TV/Film/Doc scenes of emotional intensity, feels like a difficult but necessary full stop, something significant coming to an end.
A cacophony of guitar feedback. An electric guitar melody emerges, joined by deep drums, strident bass, upbeat tambourine and wailing guitar notes. A strange and spooky vocal section takes over, joined by gutteral bass and relentless percussion. Like Tame Impala, shamanistic, powerful and psychedelic, perfect for a badass advert or to accompany a driven character on TV.
