Base Jumper

Grungey rock ‘n’ roll instrumental track. Rage Against the machine-style guitar riff, steady drums, followed by a Nirvana-style more downbeat riff with more prominent bassline, ending on the original high-octane guitar section. Angry, powerful, loud and proud, classic 90s rock perfect for energetic TV interludes, adverts for flaming whopper burgers, or for a powerful film scene representing a challenging character in defiance of authority.

Happy Feet (Suite)

Classic swinging brass-led jazz track. Piano, shuffling drums, syncopated strummed guitar intro. Brass enters with a fast, energetic melody sounding like When The Saints Go Marching In, or a classic big band standard. Upbeat, happy, positive and warm, harking back to the jazz-age, would suit a modern Film/TV scene set in New Orleans, contrasting old and new. Would also suit a fun and friendly advert for a family product.

Bed version omits the Brass melodies.

Sarakany (Suite)

Polyrhythmic solo piano track. Dynamic piano, multiple piano lines with jazz rhythms, Étiopiques-style snaking melodies. Mysterious, intimate and energetic, would suit a tv/film/doc scene full of intrigue, or a sophisticated film scene, in a smoky café, in Europe or North Africa.

Full band version features warm jazz intro on vibes, guitar and sax. Rhythmic melody lines played by guitar and vibes. Shuffling jazz drums lay down the changing rhythms. Exotic, jazzy and vibrant, would suit a lively tv/film/doc scene, the mix of textures and rhythms reflecting a mix of cultures onscreen.

Tonight We Drink Wine and Dance

Melancholy solo piano. Amélie-style minor oom-pah chords, growing in intensity and embellishment throughout the track. Another line of piano plays a lyrical melody above the regular chords. An energetic chorus brings a modulation and intricate break. Back to opening chords for a finish. Emotional and wretched, yet passionate, would suit an advert or TV scene requiring Gallic charm and impulsive, reckless emotion.

‘Underscore’ version features chords only, no melody line.

Sierra Madre

Upbeat dub reggae/jazz/Balkan mix. Energetic vocal exclamation opens the track. Steady upbeat skanking on guitar joined by laid back saxophone, intermittent piano, ramshackle drums and bold vocal samples. Fun and energetic, but sunny and relaxed, would suit an advert for something synonymous with summer or a TV/Film playful party scene.

Self-invented Crime

A free jazz build on piano, drums and orchestral strings. Shifting sustained orchestral strings growing increasingly mysterious, jazz double bass and bongos. Jazz drums introduced, snatches of solo melody on violin. Taken down a notch by a cool drum solo before a violin and piano take solos accompanied by shuffling drums and energetic bongos in an improvised free jazz homage. Ambient at first, then searching, mysterious and intriguing and intense and finally reckless and daring, suitable for TV/Film tension-building or for a thrilling moment of release.
