A New Day

Uplifting piano track with orchestral strings and hints of shoegaze. Simple piano intro, building anticipation, orchestral strings swell in the background, plodding bass guitar percussion then soaring strings and quickening percussion build to a retro, shoegaze, slacker grunge section with orchestral strings. Elbow meets The Jesus and Mary Chain. Powerful yet chilled, romantic and hopeful, a dreamy, inspirational build to suit a closing scene on screen or a heartwarming advert.

In Harmony

Melancholy piano and electronic drone track. Pulsating electronics, laser synth sounds, fleeting sound FX and sparse piano chords. Piano grows and fleeting electronics steady and form an ambient drone. Sparse beats join. Snare drum and emotional piano chords come and go over a wave of atmospheric drones, building texture with an electric guitar drone. Unpredictable, downbeat and unstable, subtle emotional background music for a dark documentary or TV show.

State of Mind

Tense, atmospheric electronica. Synth riff with added vocal samples and whooshing, fat synths underneath. Sparse, slightly tropical, subtle beats materialise, synths and vocals bubble up and cut through the murky atmosphere. Downbeat, moody, dark and slightly magical, reminiscent of a more 90s Arca, intriguing beats draw us in to another world, swampy and hazy, perfect for a mellow TV/Doc/Film scene or as sombre yet hopeful background music.

Spirit Winds and Prairie Grass

Pastoral folk on solo acoustic guitar. Quiet, thoughtful chordal motifs and finger-picking guitar. Moving from minor to major like the sun breaking through the clouds. Gentle, introspective and tentative, yet hopeful, perfect for a spare, downbeat TV/Doc sequence or a relaxed advert.

The End

Sparse piano chords, emotional, sustained strings, moves to repeated piano phrases and single strings line. A resigned conclusion. Pensive, desolate and heartfelt, suitable for the downbeat aftermath of a seismic event on TV/Film, or a warning advert.

Catch You Instrumental

Downbeat indie instrumental. Brooding bass guitar, subtle drums, repetitive riffs, floaty harp-like electric guitar with flighty synth cutting through. Slow, steady, thoughtful and moody, with a hint of hope, perfect background music for a pensive indie film moment, or for a tempting TV show trailer.

Overcome

Electronic slow jam with tense string sample, female vocal sample, repeated synth wah motif and underlying crunchy beats. Joined by hip hop beats in a tense, slow, build that swells slightly but keeps its cool. Dark, moody and sexy, this feels like the journey toward a decisive event, or a seductive affair. There is a sense of a hope toward the conclusion but we are left without any answers. This enigmatic, atmospheric track suggests a cool cityscape and the expanse of humanity within it.

Longmu

Chilled instrumental jazz track. Shuffling drums, downbeat piano chords, thoughtful piano melody with a jazz tonality. Brass enters, repeated a piano phrase. Melody repeated on piano, joined by Rhodes piano, double bass, punctuated by brass notes. Dreamy section, woozy brass, lightly strummed electric guitar, delicate piano motifs, chilled drums with Ethiopian jazz influences and bright chords. All join on relaxed version of original melody. Relaxed, warm and a little bit mysterious, perfect background music for a curious documentary or for a laid back yet reflective Film/TV scene.

Ed Mark

Sparse, western acoustic guitar track. Desolate Americana with touches of harsh slide guitar, like something out of a tense, Ry Cooder-scored Western. Atmospheric, strange and nostalgic, would suit a cowboy parody or Western-style advert or TV scene/documentary.

Theme Ambient 71

Slow-moving electronic track. White noise, ambient drones and high-pitched tones create an immersive sound world. Percussive, rhythmic electronics take over, punctuating a soft synth wash. Mysterious, enveloping and atmospheric, hopeful electronic background music, perfect for downbeat or low-key Documentary/Film/TV scenes.
