Happy-go-lucky acoustic guitar track. Lightly strummed acoustic guitar, bass guitar and soft drums introduce 60s Hammond organ style keyboards, and shaker percussion. A chorus of sustained chords on keys and electric guitar flourishes before a quieter guitar and percussion section. Back to full sound for an upbeat finish. Cheerful, hopeful and chilled, laid back fun, suitable for a upbeat, positive advert for a nifty service that will make life easier, or a product that will brighten your day. Also suitable for light-hearted documentaries.
Fat synth track. Glistening synth chords, light, glassy trap beat, fat full synth builds, deep, sparse, throbbing beats added. Helium vocal samples before a jittery beat break. Mini drop into spacey full synth section with samples. Futuristic and bright with a slightly icy air of anticipation, perfect suspenseful background music for reality TV or fashion/youth culture documentaries.
Atmospheric electronic track. Drum machine beats joined by chordal intro on synth. Arpeggiated synth plays a repetitive melody. Warm sustained synths underpin the bright, clear, undulating melody, fresh like rainwater. Extra texture with added beats and ambient synth. Intriguing, optimistic and cool, soothing synths bringing to mind water droplets on new saplings, cool rocks and epic green/blue vistas. Sounding a bit like Santigold, perfect for stylish eco-advertising, a flashy electric car driving through a crisp mountain road, or travel Documentaries.
Atmospheric electronic track. Japanese-sounding chiming percussion, textural water sounds, shakers, rattling beats and melodic beats growing in intensity. A definitive gong and a trail of dripping water to finish. Evoking the natural world, as well as ancient Eastern wisdom, ethereal, thoughtful and intense, like a more urgent version of the Lost in Translation soundtrack, or the original music for American Beauty, curious and evocative, suitable for intriguing adverts, soul-searching TV/Film or nature documentaries.
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. Builds with fuller strings and many layers of activity. Builds further with choppy strings, fuller bass parts and soaring violin melodies over insistent piano. 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. Repetitive, urgent and dramatic, like contemporary Philip Glass piano minimalism with added cinematic string flourish. Perfect for tense factual TV/Docs or a thrilling advert for a stylish, highly covetable new product.
Gentle acoustic guitar track. Solo acoustic guitar finger picking a mid-tempo, uplifting melody. Positive, hopeful, warm and comforting, an idyllic slice of Americana, sunrise over the corn fields, perfect for a wholesome advert or pensive film/tv moment.
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.
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.
Atmospheric synth instrumental. Layers of echoing synth. Fat, warm, 80s reverb-laden sound. Sombre orchestral string effect, chiming piano and glacial beats gives a serious, driving feeling. Intriguing, mysterious and strange, Twin Peaks-style ambience crossed with Enya and the Crimewatch theme tune, would suit a dark TV drama or as tension-building background music to an eye-opening documentary.
Powerful percussive thriller. Relentless cacophonous beats above a threatening descending electronic drone. Dark, atmospheric and tense, a breathless, terrifying race through dark back alleys, our character has chosen flight, but might have to fight…
