Salutations Plains Wanderer

Dreamy multi-instrumental track. Gentle, swaying, looped piano motif, joined by bright, pealing keys, hypnotic and cyclical. Moves to a jazz keyboard sound, joined by violin and cello sharing fragments of melody. High register violin and ascending keys drive the melody to an anticipatory hight point. A new section: soft, tender Satie-like chordal piano, joined by breathy sustained strings. A soothing variation on the original motif to finish. Romantic, thoughtful and other-worldly,a sonic dream, astral wanderings with one foot in the 20th century. Would suit a reflective TV scene or a very beautiful documentary.

Sneak Peek (Suite)

Light electronic track. Tranquil atmospheric electronics, bleepy sounds, vocal samples and warm synth mix with a mellow throbbing beat and upbeat percussion. Delicate electronic break, gentle swooshes and muted beats. Drums kick in, build anticipation over the gentle bed track. A snare drum section followed by an understated yet triumphant chordal synth build. Joyous, anticipatory and considered, elation but in a classy way, sounds like a more upbeat Beach House or Au Revoir Simone, low key but playful, perfect as background music for a positive, thought-provoking charity video, or for slightly suspenseful reality TV montages.

Bea

Instrumental classical/jazz track. Strings in conversation, playing melodic cycles. Warm, resonant piano enter, joined by marimba flourishes and a deep, soothing strings melody. Jazz piano chords, and the melody repeated in various registers. Marimba solo over sustained strings and a meandering improv section in the last minute. Earthy, romantic and enveloping, a calming jazz number, reminiscent of sprawling Ethiopian jazz rooted by a strong melody, as well as the gentle, rich Gymnopédie melody. Suitable for a very laid back advert or a pastoral Film/TV sequence set under a beaming winter sun.

Kite

Melancholy piano and orchestral string track. Piano leads an off-kilter waltz, joined by orchestral strings that build throughout, soaring by the finish, and gentle marimba murmurings. Slow, solemn and sensual with hints of light and hope breaking through. Perfect for a desolate TV/Doc/Film scene, imagine a kite stuck in the upper branches of a tree, disintegrating in harsh winter winds, or a sad silent movie. Also suitable as woozy, tragic, lonesome background music to an advert.

Simple Pretty Thing

Thoughtful piano and orchestral strings. Sparse piano chords mingle with the ebbing and flowing of sustained emotional string parts. Growing on intensity toward a powerfully emotional finish. Romantic, reflective and gentle, like the quiet bits of Sigur Rós tracks, sparsely cinematic with dramatic moments, the perfect soundtrack to a caring advert or an inquisitive or redemptive TV/Documentary scene.

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.

An Unusual Journey

Playful orchestral track. A jaunty woodwind motif to begin, joined by sparse glockenspiel setting a cheeky and playful tone. Languid strings join, adding an air of grandeur. Strings take prominence, woodwind takes an accompanying role. Then short bursts of strings interspersed with determined oboe. Stronger string section builds to a call and answer between gentle woodwind and serious strings, before calm finish. Pastoral, light-hearted, with serious undertones, like the Animals of Farthing Wood bounding among the trees only to come across a gun-toting farmer, before an ingenious escape. Perfect music to accompany intriguing documentary scenes about nature and animals, or reality TV, showing humans in their natural habitat.

Moonbow

Contemporary classical multi-instrumental track. Languid strings and soft piano, a gentle swaying melody. Strings trills. Chordal piano with hints of Japanese influence. New section, rhythmic, bouncy marimba and swooping, lush, woozy strings and contemplative piano. Relaxed, thoughtful and peaceful, like Satie x Studio Ghibli, a beautiful, colourful and playful set of contrasts to suit a romantic or devastatingly beautiful TV/Film scene.

In-Sen

Multi-instrumental contemporary folk. Gentle marimba intro, joined by sustained violin and cello fragments. Tinkling piano mimics the strings, leading to a darkening of mood and intense, high register string-lead movement. Resolves to gently swaying, lingering light strings and piano. Next section feels like gentle rocking in an ocean trawler. Harp and strings duel steadily to a choppy finale. Intriguing, dynamic and searching, a curious, undulating, seafaring piece, perfect for mysterious TV/Doc scenes.

Images d’une Pensée

Lyrical solo piano track. Gentle repeated piano motif, quick and insistent. Bass chords added, melody expands and counter melody is added, higher register, volume and greater depth. Slips to a quiet lull before a dramatic melodic chordal crescendo. Romantic, bright and hopeful, uplifting piano music with a French feel for inspiring adverts or euphoric TV moments.

Alt version is at a slower pace.
