Saz or baglama instrumental. Mid-tempo Arabic saz solo, a stringed instrument like a lute or guitar, resembling the Arabic oud, sounding like English folk or American country at times, with a strong Middle Eastern sound. Determined and energetic yet thoughtful and reflective, would suit documentary or TV/Film centered around the Middle East, matching the lively pace of life.
Pastoral flute septet. Various flute lines dance in counterpoint with an enchanting melody and hints of English folk. Regal, jaunty with a darkness beneath. Prim and proper interweaving flutes, perfect bewitching fantasy film music, conjuring up visions of the scary, dark forest scene from a classic Disney film, or the playful trouble-making of a Robin Hood figure.
Thoughtful acoustic guitar folk instrumental. Slow and pensive folky melodic acoustic guitar intro. A pause then a faster section, with finger-picking repetitive folk/blues guitar. A more meandering, explorative section follows into a more upbeat improv-style, rootsy country/folk section. Contemplative at first, then hopeful and positive, yet low-key. Bert Jansch with hints of boogie-woogie, a guitar journey to accompany reflective, traditional scenes on TV/Film/Adverts.
Wistful solo jazz piano. A sustained note intro like raindrops followed by jazz chords, piano trills and a full melody. Pastoral, breathless and new, calling to mind the natural landscape, would suit a thoughtful film/doc/TV scene passing over a lush landscape refreshed and awake after a storm or a long winter.
Multi-instrumental version with warm strings, mellow saxophone and shuffling percussion joined by tinkling piano and a freak folk chorus of faraway voices, calling to mind Wickerman-style pagan England.
A 60s American-style finger-picking bluegrass guitar piece. A warm full guitar sound. Simple major chords are embellished and augmented in a finger-picking style, like an American Richard Thompson. Full, round, warm, rich and hopeful, perfect for a title sequence, an ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’-style 60s film/tv show soundtrack or adverts for life-affirming, healthy products or services.
