Pangea

Melancholy harp with orchestral strings. Repeated harp motif, joined by a swell of orchestral strings. Melody doubled on piano while suspenseful strings flit above. Woodwind and harp interlude before a fuller rendition of the melody. Emotional, thoughtful, and slightly dark, a wintry, pastoral instrumental, suitable for TV/Film dramas set on the moors, or the troubled mind of the protagonist.

Come Through

Downbeat electronic RnB track. Warm piano chord progression, muted, syncopated beats, vocal samples and dreamy reverb build a sultry, expectant atmosphere. Trap beats and breathy Enya-like female vocals added. Warm, fat, nostalgic synths join with electric guitar flourishes cutting through the haze. Cool, clear synth like water droplets takes on the chord progression before a full ending. Romantic, nostalgic and hopeful, like if the Drive soundtrack was a bit more RnB. A subtly determined soundscape, perfect for pensive and decisive TV/Film/Doc moments, ultimately leaving the past behind.

Future Dreams

Fat synth track. Glistening synth chords, light, glassy trap beat, fat full synth builds, deep, sparse, throbbing beats added. Helium vocal samples before a jittery beat break. Mini drop into spacey full synth section with samples. Futuristic and bright with a slightly icy air of anticipation, perfect suspenseful background music for reality TV or fashion/youth culture documentaries.

Learning to Walk

Piano track with orchestral strings. Repetitive piano, broken harp chords and scratchy string overtones fades out. Returns with lyrical cello melody and more dynamic piano melody. Builds with fuller strings and many layers of activity. Builds further with choppy strings, fuller bass parts and soaring violin melodies over insistent piano. After this storm, the clouds part, revealing a softer, more gentle strings section, breaking into a major key, hints of sunshine. Final section is a decidedly sombre string part. Repetitive, urgent and dramatic, like contemporary Philip Glass piano minimalism with added cinematic string flourish. Perfect for tense factual TV/Docs or a thrilling advert for a stylish, highly covetable new product.

Twinkly harp-like break followed by scratchy synth, Skrillex-style D’n’B rhythms and high pitched synths. Modern, futuristic and utopian, positive, saccharine synthpop for fresh youthful adverts or fun Factual/Entertainment TV.

Cloud Atlas

Summery electronic track. Synth build then underwater beats before a spacey synth break and a piano riff. Builds again to a bright, full synth journey through space. Weird, wobbly, breezy but with an edge, this track would suit a summer-in-the-city Film/TV sequence.

Wish You Weren’t Here

Sunny funk track. Funky Prince-like funk guitar intro, electric guitar funk riff with melodic bass guitar and consistent drums. Bright, whistling organ joins on top for the chorus. New section with warm 60s keyboard solo over a slower funk. Moved to a smooth, slightly Spanish guitar solo. A quiet guitar break then back to full chorus. Upbeat, joyful and positive, perfect for a TV montage or holiday advert, sunshine and holidays, playful abandon and laughs with friends.

Adagio

Melancholy piano and orchestral string track. Emotional sustained string swells, a deep bed of full double bass with gentle piano notes picked out, heavy with meaning. Slow-moving, introspective, with an almost religious sense of thoughtful wonder, suitable for TV/Film/Doc scenes of emotional intensity, feels like a difficult but necessary full stop, something significant coming to an end.
