Protostar

Sparkling electronica. Glassy synth intro, expanding crystals of synthesised sound, glittering in the light. Soft steady beat under delicate arpeggiated synths, fast rainbow synth notes flit by above a rising sustained synth string section. Calm descends. Bubbling synths and flute-like electronics join gentle, clear electric guitar, building anticipation. Magical, delicate and drenched in muted pastel colours, a prismatic unfolding of synthesised sounds imitating nature. Perfect accompaniment and contrast to a documentary about the natural world, science and nature combine in a fantastical future.

Kon Tiki Nocturne

Funk rock ‘n’ roll guitar track with added jazz flute. Grungey 90s-style guitar intro, drums, jangly guitar, steady bass line and funk guitar follow all at once before a complete change to a funky section with jangling guitars and freewheeling jazz flute. Return to original rock riff with an extra layer of funk guitar. Returns to jazzy section before a jazz/funk break and bright, melodic guitar solo. Upbeat, positive and sunny, would suit an advert featuring fun people getting together, kicking back and having good times.

Obstinate

Dramatic orchestral track. A flighty melodic phrase on woodwind, mimicked by strings and punctuated by vigorous percussion, joined by countermelody on woodwind before fuller orchestral melody enters. Excited, suspenseful, tense and nervous. Reminiscent of the Animals of Farthing Wood theme, suitable for a dramatic, high stakes film/TV sequence or an advert for a disaster-averting product.

Bollywood Love

Bollywood -style track with a contemporary R’n’B edge. A snaking sitar line is followed by tablas and an electronic beat. A flute melody joins before moving to a more intense, dramatic orchestral string section. Vocal samples and a change of rhythm with jazzy hip hop drums, before going back to the original sitar motif. Seductive, mysterious, intense and edgy, would suit adverts for products reflecting diverse city environments where the traditional and the contemporary mingle; or a TV/Film sequence referencing an edgy version of the Bollywood aesthetic.

Woodwind Fun

Playful woodwind call and answer. Brass “bass line” gives a foundation to the intertwined flute and reed lines’ jolly game of tag above. Fun, playful, pastoral and old-fashioned, feels like we’re prancing through the countryside with Mr. Toad and friends, or a having a jaunt in a topsy-turvy English hotel by the seaside.

Fool’s Paradise

Chilled bleepy electronic slow jam. Underwater synth chords joined by drums and bongo samples. Flute-like synth samples flit overhead, adding a tropical colour. 90s hip hop drums and a bassy synth line add depth. After a drum break with flute samples, the silvery synth returns. Cool, mysterious and a little bit playful, perfect for ads for a fresh new product or a trippy, surreal or exotic film/TV sequence.

Forêt de Broceliande

Sad solo flute. That’s it. And you don’t need anything more, perfect for a lament over the hills of war casualties, shredded flags rustle in a somber wind. And in her chamber, lady Guinevere brushes her hair as she softly sings to the ghosts of her fallen loved ones.

Big Hublot

Sample-heavy 90s influenced hip hop track. Synth electric guitar plays a tense riff over various samples, including hand claps, vinyl scratches, radio static, organ, hand drums, tambourine and flute, and dark hip hop beats. Tense and slightly sinister but cool and collected,with a hint of dangerous fun, perfect for an atmospheric, streetwise advert or TV/Film sequence set in a dangerous neighbourhood where anything can happen.

The Crash

Harp arpeggio, lyrical and pastoral, joined by flute, strings and glassy electronics. Machines imitating nature. Strange, poignant and atmospheric, would suit a investigative TV, or a thoughtful documentary montage.
