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 -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.
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.
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.
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.
