Martial Law

Orchestral build with electric guitar. Languid violins suspended, cello adds depth before choppy strings drive the track forward. Tension builds with relentless strings against shifting chords. Choppy strings joined by punchy electric guitar bursts building, punctuated by drums rolls, rolling back to exposed string stabs. Tense, nerve-wracking and threatening, perfect suspenseful music for an action movie scene or audacious TV drama finale.

Puddle Pondering

Hypnotic improvisational string track on Cretan lyra. Layers of overlapping Cretan lyra play drone-like modal phrases. At 3 minutes, the various lines come together along with added percussion, to form a more driving, unified, full melody, growing in intensity with hints of Irish folk music and Arabic music, to a powerful ending. Mesmerising, contemplative and experimental, singular sounds for a documentary looking at lesser-known cultures, spiritual places or undefinable combinations of cultures.

I Can Be Fearless

Driving alternative rock instrumental. Subtle electronic swoosh before simple strummed electric guitar riff. Effects and light keys added. Extra electric guitar line joins before the full alt rock chorus blast, uplifting and euphoric. Chilled verse with chiming anticipatory guitar before full chorus returns. Rocking mid section with punchy guitars and 60s keys. Chiming guitar duet takes things down a notch before the driving chorus. Single guitar outro. Brash, bold and excited, 90s alt rock throwback, perfect as upbeat TV background music or for a slick, rocking advert.

Where the Wind is Blowing

Moody synth instrumental. Seductive beats and atmospheric sustained synths with 90s Morcheeba-style synth melody introduces a air-punching 80s Madonna-esque synth chorus. Tense, driving and intriguing, perfect for onscreen anticipation, or a smooth, sexy and slightly cheesy action film.

Tresero A Maggio

Percussive hangdrum-led track. Melodic hangdrum and driving percussion lead an atmospheric instrumental. More melodic handpan section before the close. Anticipatory, excited and shrouded in mystery, perfect for nature or travel docs, imagine catching glimpses of lush foliage from train speeding high on a mountain track.

Interlude is more sparse, without the driving rhythms at first, building momentum and rhythmic intensity toward the end of the track.

Stockholm

Orchestral action-film music. Fast pulse of orchestral strings, guitar and drums builds anticipation. Electronic elements introduced to the pulse, creating tension. Orchestral strings begin a repeated motif with electric guitar crying out on top. A sudden break before creepy meandering strings are introduced before a return to a suspenseful orchestral whole. Nerve-wracking, threatening and relentless, driving soundtrack to a high-stakes TV/Film scene, or a humourous advert referencing this genre.

Clear Water

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.

Lights Camera Action LCA

Light synth banger. Punchy, sparse synth chords introduce a 90s synth line with glassy synths washes creating atmosphere. Brash synth chords over a variation on the melodic riff with a throbbing kick drum beat beneath. A new layer of high register synth line takes things up a notch, shuffling beats add a dance flavour. More variations on the melody, drums kick in again, then an abrupt stop. Positive, hopeful and determined, driving beats to suit a reality TV challenge or slightly cheesy advert for a modern product.

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.

Time For Action

Upbeat electronic instrumental. Pulsating beats, fast and fleeting arpeggiated synth and brash, fat synth melody line. Insistent, driving and determined, bold electronic sounds, perfect for high-octane sports coverage, reality TV or as dramatic, anticipatory music for a tension-building advert.
