Sinope

Beautiful solo piano track. Soft, waltzing piano chord progressions become a fuller sound, a more urgent, emotional piano passage full of longing. Moves to dramatic high register piano to end. Thoughtful, reflective and romantic, perfect, Amélie-esque undulating piano to accompany an introverted character, finally opening up to the world; an awakening; a ray of sunshine.

Truly You

Romantic jazz track with saxophone. Soaring, emotional saxophone soloing over a gentle bed of double bass, drums and softly-played piano chords. Electric guitar takes a laid back solo, accompanied by double bass and shuffling drums. Sax returns, over increasingly emotive piano 7th chords. Introspective, wistful and nostalgic, a retro, heartbroken jazz club standard, perfect for a TV/Film/Doc scene full of romantic longing.

Bed track features piano chords, double bass and percussion only.

Harpalyke

Slow, thoughtful piano track. Slow-paced, piano chords, with a hint of Amélie-style European nostalgia. Pensive and emotional with a hint of hope. Would suit a commercial for a family-friendly service, saving for a rainy day or for a reflective, arthouse-style Film/TV sequence.

Bonds

Acoustic guitar, piano and percussion. Dynamic, jazzy percussion, strange drum rhythms and a disconnected piano melody. Unpredictable and off-kilter. Emotional orchestral strings mingle with playful percussion and jaunty acoustic guitar. String section, soaring, beautiful violins glide above the rattling drums and jittery guitar. Mysterious, enigmatic and pensive. A strange world that draws you in down the rabbit hole, would suit sophisticated adverts or curious TV/Film/Doc scenes.

Simple Pretty Thing

Thoughtful piano and orchestral strings. Sparse piano chords mingle with the ebbing and flowing of sustained emotional string parts. Growing on intensity toward a powerfully emotional finish. Romantic, reflective and gentle, like the quiet bits of Sigur Rós tracks, sparsely cinematic with dramatic moments, the perfect soundtrack to a caring advert or an inquisitive or redemptive TV/Documentary scene.

Awhrae

Emotional slow-paced string track. Melancholy string solo for 1 min, higher violin line joins, sparse, sombre piano chords punctuate the melody. Slowly shifting, the melody is shared, moments of light and bliss emerging through chordal changes. Further string lines join and the piano rings out on the higher register, a walking accompaniment in reminiscent of stately Baroque style. Strings multiply and build, piano gains strength to a powerful emotional effect. Beautiful, lyrical and sad, a sense of deep yearning permeates the track, perfect film music, cutting through a beautiful imagery, lending an air of nostalgia, romance and longing.

A Victory For No One (Suite)

An warm, uplifting slow build on piano, with bubbling electronics and soaring orchestral strings. Atmospheric electronics introduce and add edge to a hopeful chord progression on piano. Orchestral strings join later, moving to a quietly euphoric finale. Positive, emotional, heart-warming and a bit love-struck, this emotional build would suit a love scene, or a scene in which our character succeeds against all odds.

No Strings version – A subtle string-like synth replaces full orchestral strings, electronics are more prominent.

No Piano version – Longer build up, Drive-like sustained bass synth notes hold the chord progression. Less sentimental.

40 second version – Shorter, with a quicker journey to the rapturous finale.

Long Dream of August

Emotional piano and orchestral string track. Broken piano arpeggios accompanied by deep, lyrical strings. Builds passionately to reach the higher register of the piano and the lowest cello notes. Slow-paced, reflective and moving, the melodic simplicity of Satie, coupled with a cool, contemporary vastness, like Sigur Ros. Perfect romantic music for a heartbreaking onscreen moment or for a reflective walk away…

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.

Break Away

Melancholy solo piano. Broken chord motif, introduces a melody of insistent, yet delicate, single repeated notes. Melody grows more lyrical with arpeggiated chord inversions, before a melancholy slower melodic section. Another build of passionate broken chords moving between minor and major tonalities. Introspective, quiet and mournful with a hint of hopeful optimism. The sun peeping out from behind dark clouds, suitable for an emotionally charged, reflective or romantic TV scene, or an advert for a service offering hope in times of darkness.
