La Peru

Peruvian instrumental with charango and cajón. Stringed, guitar-like charango plays a melancholy melodic hook, while a second charango provides intricate accompaniment. Gentle percussion from cajón gives a subtle rhythmic flavour while supporting the melody. Emotional, passionate yet quiet and restrained, reminiscent of Manu Chao, full of romantic anticipation to suit a sizzling onscreen lovers’ dance or for a travel documentary or advert with a Latin influence.

Ticking Time

Uplifting pop/rock track. Quiet drum and guitar intro building to including expressive vocal ‘Aahs’ and ‘Ohs’ with heavier drums. Mid section is more experimental, reverb-laden vocal samples reminiscent of FKA Twigs’s ‘Water Me’. Overall more like Coldplay, expansive, emotional and open. Would suit a TV/Doc scene of emotional closure, or a heartwarming advert.

Charango

Charango instrumental. Delicate, beguiling repeated arpeggios grow into rhythmically strummed chords in a Spanish classical guitar style on this lute-like South American instrument. Passionate, emotional and sensual, imagine this accompanying an onscreen dance scene or a thoughtful travel documentary.

Glasshouse Studies II

Beautiful, emotional piano track with violin and clarinet. Chiming, resonant Satie-style piano joined by tender violin and warm, moving clarinet. Piano chords stop before an emotive new section is revealed, with soaring violin and heartfelt clarinet answering back, like a lovers duet. Passionate, stirring and inspiring, yearning music for a TV/Film scene or thoughtful documentary piece.

Glasshouse Studies I

Emotional piano track. Melancholy piano melody with sparse chords. Warm, comforting woodwind joins on countermelody, bringing hope and a glimmer of sunshine. Sentimental, contemplative and brooding, perfect for a subtly heartfelt advert or emotive charity video piece.

Roots (Suite)

Acoustic guitar and piano track with experimental elements. Gentle acoustic guitar punctuated with electronic noise and water sounds. Joined by warm piano and hints of playfully subtle saxophone, minor chords growing in intensity and turning to major for a hopeful finish. Mysterious, cheeky and subversive, brings to mind a magical woodland scene of trees going walkies while your back is turned. Perfect for TV/Film/Docs, pastoral settings and subtly powerful storytelling.

Bed version is more intimate, featuring more raw, sparse acoustic guitar, brings out the scratchy, barely-there violin and teasing background noise.

The Party Wall

Ambient electronics with piano and strings. Bleepy electronic intro with subtle, chiming piano notes cutting through the soundscape. Strings creep in before a powerful, low-register strings swell overwhelms the track and radio samples add a layer of intensity and discord. Tense, ambient and emotional, dramatic background music for a hard-hitting documentary or uneasy TV drama.

Tide of Feelings

Emotional pop/rock. Drum build with sparse piano chords. Violin-like drawn-out samples mournfully yearn over the drums and piano. Strings flutter build to expressive vocal samples and more string layers. Enveloping, romantic and thoughtful, would suit a Film/TV scene of great emotional and romantic tension.

Sweeping string and piano track. Fluttering strings and ticking percussion over single, hopeful piano notes. Anticipation builds, breaks into a vast hopeful section with a full chorus of choppy strings, shifting to calmer sustained strings. Emotional, romantic and full of sweeping positivity and wondrous expectation, perfect for a charity campaign or heartwarming advert.
