Ready Weapons

Epic orchestral with dark beats. Choppy orchestral string intro, added bass strings provide build to a tight beat drop. Piercing string stabs bring tension over steady string melody and erratic beats. Tensions build to a dizzying level with added layers of competing strings. Frantic, driven and nerve-wracking, glam meets grit, 007 meets the Fast and the Furious, perfect soundtrack to a challenging onscreen quest.

Cafe Incident

Tense orchestral string track. Choppy violins enter with erratic melodic phrases over a foreboding sustained double bass note. Extra layers of strings interrupt each other creating a chaotic ambiance. Screeching violin samples then flurry over drums and a strong, driving, repeated melodic idea, coming to a dramatic finish. Nerve-wracking, threatening and doom-laden, a worrying barrage of string suspense, suited to an action movie scene or advert evoking this sense of exhilarating fear.

Finish Line

Panic Amongst the Dragonflies

Mysterious multi-instrumental. Atmospheric feedback intro followed by oom-pah-pah waltz rhythm and childish marimba melody. Orchestral strings and accordion join with a Gallic-inspired melody, reminiscent of Amélie. The melancholy gives way to excitable, erratic rhythms on all instruments, before a dynamic final section with passionate violin and jumpy marimba. Magical, melancholy and manic, perfect music to accompany a rainy midnight walk through the streets of Paris, only to end up in a sleazy speakeasy at the centre of an absinthe-sodden freakshow.

Susenyos (Solo Piano)

Solo jazz piano. Erratic, playful opening chords, a dramatic section exploring the range of the piano and deep, stomping chords before an East African-style jazz solo. Moves to Gymnopédie-like lyrical beauty before a dynamic minimalist section. Alternates fluidly between these varying styles, creating a multi-hued collage of moods. Surprising, playful, dramatic and sophisticated, would suit an old-style silent film or a confusing onscreen tug ‘o’ war of emotions.

Full band version also available.

Consonance Complement

Solo jazz piano. Short, jerky jazz piano chords. Dissonant piano clusters with hints of sweetness. Main theme repeated an octave higher. then more dissonance with sophisticated intermittent jazz piano soloing and low piano rumbles. Back to the uncomfortable clusters with their moments of sunshine. Serious in a playful way, erratic, difficult and jumpy, would suit a Woody Allen style Film/TV scene set among neurotic urban intellectuals or a stylish advert for a swish old-fashioned beverage.

The Real Business

Two part brass instrumental. Unsteady jazz piano and erratic saxophone notes begin before settling into a mellow, lyrical piano and sax melody with warm string swells. Slightly off-kilter tuning counteracts the sweetness of the melody, giving it a quirky edge. Dreamlike, nostalgic and strange, would suit a reflective documentary moment or a sentimental but not sickly-sweet Film/TV sequence.

Travel Pakistan

Orchestral string track. Dramatic sustained string build with scattered, erratic piano notes. Triumphant string and percussion build with slight dischord. Epic, hopeful and pastoral, suitable for TV/Film/Doc scenes of hope and determination.

Tidal Eye

Atmospheric percussive track with strings. Erratic background noise, clanging, bashing, becomes rhythmic. Sustained string swells add further suspense before a wailing orchestral blast with a pulsating background beat. Strange, tense and unsettling, would suit a dramatic, frightening Film/TV/Doc.
