Contagion

Dark electronic slow build. Menacing repeated bass synth line like Darth Vader humming a Kraftwerk tune, added synth line slowly expands outward, grows higher in register, fizzling, fleeting electro noises pulsate. Threatening, tense and foreboding, a nerve-wracking wait as the symptoms develop, perfect for a sombre TV/Documentary moment, a suspenseful film scene or cautionary advert.

Ascent

Dark, epic orchestral strings and piano track. Piano intro before a foreboding blast of synth brass and frenetic orchestral strings. A quiet moment of piano and a rumble of drums before an epic return to strings, and a thrilling, threatening repeated motif. Ascending strings heighten the tension before the final foghorn-like blast. Tense and uneasy, but our brazen hero is coming to the rescue. Suitable for a bombastic advert or a high tension, high stakes TV/Film moment.

Badlands (Suite)

A pulsating percussive thriller of a track, teeming with tension. Throbbing bassy percussion and arpeggiated percussive synth intensify into a terse, tense, thrilling melody. Added synth strings heighten the tension while a symphony of drums pound beneath, ending with a foreboding sustained crash. Anxiety-inducing, exciting and nerve-wracking. Perfect for a high-octane movie chase sequence, pushing characters to the extremes of human emotion; a particularly tense reality TV challenge sequence; or an advert for something to help you through life’s most challenging moments.

The percussion only version omits the anxiety-inducing melody, leaving the cacophony of drums below to pound purposefully to the close of the track.

The Issue Goes Deeper (Suite)

Lurching synth doppler effect creates an atmosphere of uneasy tension. One note rings out, klaxon-like, joined by threatening synth sounds panning across a bleak sonic plain. Hi-hat underpins the score with added suspense. Dark, desolate and unnerving, with a heavy, mysterious atmosphere that suggests an enemy at your shoulder. Perfect for a prison break, an abduction or an escape.

Light version has a longer, more exposed synth note. Simple version only features the doppler effect synth sounds, no central sustained note.
