Gentle instrumental on piano and percussion. Melodic percussion intro rings out, like a lullaby played on gamelan and church bells. Melodic passage on harpsichord and guitar alternates with a gentle piano section. Synth strings swell, sounding like a choir. Comes to a quiet finish. Hopeful, tender and soothing, a reassuring, enveloping sound, perfect for a comforting advert for a trustworthy, caring product.
Ambient synth instrumental. New age synths glisten and sparkle, slowly shifting over time. Calm, bright and peaceful, a hopeful, quietly joyful, celestial voyage – think Carl Sagan – perfect as ambient background noise for an enlightening documentary.
Summery pop instrumental. Bright synths, claps and chugging percussion introduce the happy, soaring chorus and simple melodies. Layers of warm synth build and envelop, creating a glowing ball of sunshine and fake tan. Happy, hopeful and fun, perfect music for a summer advert, optimistic TV drama, or Love Island-style sunset montage.
Naive hyperpop. Catchy synth melody over sweet synths and a serious beat build. Beat drops, wobbly synths, whooshing samples and warm, enveloping, pretty chords. Another build, squeaky synths and a beat break. Happy, sincere, cute and sparkly, like the bonkers kawaii of PC Music, or computer game music, perfect for Reality TV montages/interludes, or adverts for young and fun summer festivals, or rainbow computer game fantasy worlds.
Instrumental classical/jazz track. Strings in conversation, playing melodic cycles. Warm, resonant piano enter, joined by marimba flourishes and a deep, soothing strings melody. Jazz piano chords, and the melody repeated in various registers. Marimba solo over sustained strings and a meandering improv section in the last minute. Earthy, romantic and enveloping, a calming jazz number, reminiscent of sprawling Ethiopian jazz rooted by a strong melody, as well as the gentle, rich Gymnopédie melody. Suitable for a very laid back advert or a pastoral Film/TV sequence set under a beaming winter sun.
Intricate guitar instrumental. Plucked acoustic guitar lines interwoven. Electric guitar with some reverb and delay effects picks out a melody on top. Electric guitar grows more prominent, sounding like an instrumental Warpaint, while the acoustic lines grow stronger and more intricate. The interplay of guitar lines creates a chiming effect. Atmospheric, melancholy and enveloping, a melancholy, hypnotic sound world, perfect for tense TV/Film/Doc moments in unfamiliar environments.
Downbeat electronica. 90s influenced piano intro, bassy synth and sustained synths join, along with eerie theremin-like warbling synths. A trip hop style drums build before a quieter break. Atmospheric electronics sustain the soundscape to a quiet close. Reminiscent of Massive Attack, anticipatory, ambient and immersive, an enveloping sound world, mysterious and alluring, to suit a chilled advert, tense documentary or Scandi noir-style contemplative TV/Film sequence.
Slow, spacey electronic track. Atmospheric electronics with fleeting glimmering, glistening synths. Like floating in outer space, coming across various life forms with signature bleeping sounds. Ambient, enveloping, and slightly disturbing, post-apocalyptic film music for scenes of immersion, either in water, in an unfamiliar environment or in the dark recesses of the human mind.
Atmospheric piano and electronics. Quiet piano chordal intro with ambient electronic sounds. Gentle piano wandering, ascending in a repeated motif, growing in volume and intensity. Drops to a quieter sparse piano line, enveloped by electronics. Reflective, heartfelt and honest, cool and calm, would suit an a TV/Doc scene of intense longing or regret; an emotionally fraught film scene; or a nostalgic advert.
Atmospheric piano with effects. Heavy block piano chords with building resonance, soft single piano notes, delay and reverb effects creating a stormy swell of sound. As the sound builds, piano overtones ring out, with higher register chords adding to the colour palette. Slow-paced, reflective and enveloping, with a hint of hopefulness, perfect background music for a wordless, emotional Film/TV scene, matching a desolate, open-ended landscape.
