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.
Reggae track with electric guitar. Keys, bass, and drums holding down the mid-tempo rhythm, warm, retro electric guitar soloing, laid back brass interludes and a faraway male vocal chorus. Smooth, chilled, relaxed, easy vintage Rocksteady sound, would suit TV/Film/Doc usage for warm, soothing scenes or for adverts for laid back summer plans.
Polyrhythmic solo piano track. Dynamic piano, multiple piano lines with jazz rhythms, Étiopiques-style snaking melodies. Mysterious, intimate and energetic, would suit a tv/film/doc scene full of intrigue, or a sophisticated film scene, in a smoky café, in Europe or North Africa.
Full band version features warm jazz intro on vibes, guitar and sax. Rhythmic melody lines played by guitar and vibes. Shuffling jazz drums lay down the changing rhythms. Exotic, jazzy and vibrant, would suit a lively tv/film/doc scene, the mix of textures and rhythms reflecting a mix of cultures onscreen.
Upbeat Africa-inspired piano track with vocals. Orchestral strings, spirited African vocals, rousing percussion and hopeful piano chords. Driving, positive and joyous, would suit a heartwarming, Africa-related advert or tv/film moment of ecstatic joy.
Instrumental version features driving piano and percussion without the vocals. Rousing and uplifting, would suit any joyous onscreen moment.
1 min and 30 second ad length version, with vocals, also available.
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.
Live instrumental acoustic guitar saga. Raw blues/folk acoustic guitar melody, repetitive melodic motifs. Lyrical mid-section to a more tense, frantic part, alternating between drama and calm moments. End section is like something out of a Western film, tense and sparse, with dramatic slide guitar, to a hopeful finger-picking final section. Sombre, dramatic and epic with moments of light, the nature of the live recording adding interesting imperfections. Different sections would suit various Film/TV/Documentary moments, would suit an American road trip or a nature documentary explore the American Wild West.
Jaunty country-folk acoustic guitar instrumental. Light-hearted acoustic guitar repeated phrases, melodic acoustic guitar, moments of tension and relief. Upbeat, gentle and pastoral, would suit a Film/TV scene in a rural setting, gentle Americana to suit an innocent ideal of rural life where the greatest threat is a fox among the chickens.
Thoughtful acoustic guitar instrumental. Quiet acoustic guitar intro, freeform strummed section, back to original motif, building in intensity and volume. Pensive, nostalgic at first, becomes more emotional and forceful, would suit a contemplative documentary scene, stirring from thoughtfulness into action.
