A Big Score

Experimental, tropical instrumental with brass and percussion. Wavy brass and woodwind and sparse frenetic double bass, oud-like guitar with shakers, drums and orchestral percussion begin a 2-part musical journey in Casablanca, or some other city of intigue and passion. Marching band snare gives way to tropicalia on shakers, bass, acoustic guitar and wah wah effects. All the colour and life of a tropical jungle dances sweatily together with brass holding the Latin-style melody. Retro, intriguing yet sexy and ambient, suited to an ambitious Film/Doc or TV show set in sensual, sunny climes or an atmospheric summery advert for a passion-inducing indulgence.

Cafe Incident

Tense orchestral string track. Choppy violins enter with erratic melodic phrases over a foreboding sustained double bass note. Extra layers of strings interrupt each other creating a chaotic ambiance. Screeching violin samples then flurry over drums and a strong, driving, repeated melodic idea, coming to a dramatic finish. Nerve-wracking, threatening and doom-laden, a worrying barrage of string suspense, suited to an action movie scene or advert evoking this sense of exhilarating fear.
