Atmospheric synth instrumental. Layers of echoing synth. Fat, warm, 80s reverb-laden sound. Sombre orchestral string effect, chiming piano and glacial beats gives a serious, driving feeling. Intriguing, mysterious and strange, Twin Peaks-style ambience crossed with Enya and the Crimewatch theme tune, would suit a dark TV drama or as tension-building background music to an eye-opening documentary.
Intriguing mid-tempo electronic track. Shaker and hand drum-style percussion, twinkling electronics, bright, glassy synths and sustained atmospheric synth chords unfold and expand. Sustained synth grows in intensity, organ style synth chords chime out, cutting through the dreamscape. Dense, magical, ethereal and futuristic with hints of tension and discord. Feels like a voyage of discovery in a utopian future world, or a personal journey of realisation.
Ambient Electronic track. Subtle electronics, delicate bubbly beats, synth vocal samples, orchestral strings and warm reverb, strings build with percussive electronics, back to quiet reverb section. Tranquil, romantic, uplifting, suitable for hopeful adverts or film/TV sequences, the sound of a future world where robots turn out to be friendly and caring.
Sample-heavy Eastern-inspired track. Complex beats, jerky string samples, fleeting Asian flute samples, slippery snippets of a dynamic Middle Eastern-style melody with Indian percussion. Serious, intense and changeable, a mix of moods and cultures suiting a food/travel advert or TV/Film scene or documentary exploring the complex history of a colourful place.
Warm piano and marimba track. Repetitive, emotional piano, warm orchestral strings swell and mellow melodic marimba. Calm, relaxed and romantic, would suit an advert for a loving product that will protect your family, or as background music for positive campaign videos and documentaries.
Spacey synth track. Arpeggiated robotic synth, blobby beats, steady drums, stellar synth sound effects. Futuristic, celestial and expansive, perfect Kraftwerk-style retro soundtrack to a fun documentary or a playful advert. The sound of the future, as imagined in the ’70s.
Downbeat indie instrumental. Brooding bass guitar, subtle drums, repetitive riffs, floaty harp-like electric guitar with flighty synth cutting through. Slow, steady, thoughtful and moody, with a hint of hope, perfect background music for a pensive indie film moment, or for a tempting TV show trailer.
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.
Cute retro video game music. Fat synth arpeggios and high pitched synth intro before a head-bopping blobby synth and beat section with cutesy synth flourishes. Ridiculously, relentlessly happy and positive, 8-bit sunshine and rainbows, suitable for an upbeat advert for a fun event or product.
Epic orchestral soundtrack. Cinematic soaring strings, choppy dynamic violins, triumphant horns and rumbling percussive flourishes. Quieter section features female wordless vocals, chugging percussion and strings before a busier horn and string section to finish. Proud, dignified and victorious, suited to a classic blockbuster action film or and advert for an epic computer game, or a bombastic event.
