A Body Up Against Itself

Folk rock instrumental. Short ambient intro, then main intro of mandolin with strummed guitar chords, solid drums a strong bass line join, adding punch and depth. Arpeggiated synth then an electronic break with synth strings, muted, faraway drums and atmospheric synth before the drums, bass and guitar kick in again. Confident and strident, yet thoughtful, folky with a harsh rock edge, perfect TV theme music to suit a terrestrial drama, or for an adventure/travel advert for the British outdoors.

No Drums, Stems and Ad length versions available

Sneak Peek (Suite)

Light electronic track. Tranquil atmospheric electronics, bleepy sounds, vocal samples and warm synth mix with a mellow throbbing beat and upbeat percussion. Delicate electronic break, gentle swooshes and muted beats. Drums kick in, build anticipation over the gentle bed track. A snare drum section followed by an understated yet triumphant chordal synth build. Joyous, anticipatory and considered, elation but in a classy way, sounds like a more upbeat Beach House or Au Revoir Simone, low key but playful, perfect as background music for a positive, thought-provoking charity video, or for slightly suspenseful reality TV montages.

Evening Star

Pensive piano track with electronics. Fast-paced, wave-like piano with electronic swells. Undulating repeated piano underneath a simple piano melody and airy electronics build an absorbing fantastical world. Breathless, atmospheric and dynamic, with a hint of melancholy. Piano poetry for screen to accompany the excitement and possibility of heady romance.

For There is Much to Dare

Atmospheric piano instrumental with subtle strings and electronics. Sustained, dramatic piano notes, another layer of delicate piano bubbles underneath. A melody with delay and electronic effects emerges from the murky ambience created by string-like scratchy drones and muted layers of repetitive piano. Strings grow more harsh, piano builds, ending on a gentle hocketing motif on high-register piano, like gentle chiming bells. Sombre, emotional and quietly, epic, a cinematic soundscape with Philip Glass-like rhythmic piano, perfect to accompany images of nature or a tragic human drama.

Morning Glow

Piano with string accompaniment. Repetitive piano motif intro, joined by lyrical string section, playing simple, overlapping sustained harmonies and a flutter of electronics. Opens out and warms up with added piano and fuller string parts. Thoughtful and gentle with a hint of romance, would suit scenes of the natural world on a TV/Doc. Flowers unfurling their petals, leaves going brown and falling to the ground, the natural cycles and rhythms of life.

Reflection

Solo piano track. Slow-paced piano motif, repeated, joined by ghostly effects-laden single piano notes, building anticipation. Further piano layers added and subtle sustained strings and a soft pulsating beat. Atmospheric, suspenseful and pensive. The clue is in the title, perfect for an onscreen moment of reflection, introspection, a decision in the making, moving slowly but surely toward new possibilities, leaving the past behind.

Aether

Slow-paced piano with electronics and orchestral strings. Fleeting electronic fragments, overtone-like snatches of sound, clusters of plaintive piano melody. Orchestral strings introduced, a warm swell, more defined piano melody with electronic accents. Mysterious, stark and and intensely emotional, perfect for onscreen melancholy, and tales of human warmth and compassion.

Dominoes

Funky guitar instrumental. Wocka wocka guitar, funky slap bass and 90s keys, with retro samples and electronic effects. Woozy, laid back and upbeat, the 70s as imagined in the 90s, a stoner on a spacehopper. Fun slacker music for easy going adverts or 90s throwback TV.

The Art of Dreaming

Atmospheric build with piano and orchestral strings. Sustained strings build anticipation, joined by a repeated piano phrase ringing out hopefully. Slow build to include prominent string swells and bubbling, dynamic electronics. Hopeful, inspiring and positive, like a more chilled Chariots of Fire, epic but without the climax. Would suit a decisive TV/Film moment or a slow-moving, heart-warming advert.
