Distant Lights

Gentle orchestral string track with electronic beats. Shimmering, sustained orchestral strings over subtle electronics. Muted irregular electronic beats add an edge, then choral vocal samples add heavenly harmonies. Strings build and envelop everything. Serene, celestial and spacey, perfect for an eye-opening documentary or as calming background music for an inspiring advert.

Smoke Up

Bouncy electronic track with vocal samples. ‘ID please’ vocal sample, male vocal harmony sample, 90s R ‘n’ B vibes, bouncy synth, 90s West Coast hip hop-style samples and the sound of a creaking bed…Sexy, breezy and summery, like Boyz II Men over an 80s synth, a 90s throwback perfect for sun-soaked adverts or TV scenes.

Once A Squirrel

Multi-instrumental contemporary jazz/folk. Light-footed marimba intro into a marimba riff with counter melody. Violin and cello join with a brief melody, continue over the marimba. Polyrhythms emerge from multiple layerings and harmonies. Quiet marimba break before a burst of vigorous strings. Dynamic new section with sparse piano, strange rhythms and freely soloing marimba. Slow down and fade to finish. Playful, folky and a bit magical, secret goings on, covert, playful encounters and mysterious but jolly woodland fun. Like the soundtrack to a jaunty but slight dark Enid Blyton tale.

Morning Glow

Piano with string accompaniment. Repetitive piano motif intro, joined by lyrical string section, playing simple, overlapping sustained harmonies and a flutter of electronics. Opens out and warms up with added piano and fuller string parts. Thoughtful and gentle with a hint of romance, would suit scenes of the natural world on a TV/Doc. Flowers unfurling their petals, leaves going brown and falling to the ground, the natural cycles and rhythms of life.

Dayenu (Suite)

Uplifting piano and strings build. Two soothing piano lines playing broken chords, joined by gently plucked harmonising acoustic guitar. Bass guitar and drums add depth and a sense of anticipation. The pace builds on drums, orchestral strings enter subtly before a quiet piano break. Strings re-enter, guitar, then piano, drums signal a change, then into the song full throttle, ending on a curious triumphant horn note. Gentle but excited, happy, hopeful and positive, perfect for a advert for health matters, a trustworthy or ambitious service doing good for your family.

Each Day With Me (Instrumental)

Easy-going acoustic guitar track. Gentle acoustic guitar finger-picking with soft piano chords beneath. Breathy vocal ‘Ooohs’ join at the chorus. Next time round more vocals with harmonies and fuller plucked guitar. Hopeful, positive, sweet and romantic, a bit Dawson’s Creek, and as wholesome as the Gilmore Girls, perfect for a saccharine advert or thoughtful, pastoral TV/Film scene.

Opening

Orchestral soundscape. High register sustained strings, rhythmic piano motifs and bass drones create a lush, mysterious soundscape. Jerky, stop-start moments and dark harmonies create slight unease until the chords resolve again. Reflective, heartfelt and troubled, quietly powerful soundtrack music to suit a desolate landscape or a thought-provoking visual.

Memories

Wistful orchestral string track. Sustained cello and double bass notes underpin a woozy violin melody, ascending, floating into space. Slowly shifting string harmonies are heavy and tranquil. Peaceful yet reflective and emotional, perfect for a thoughtful, nostalgic TV/Film/Doc scene, remembering the past then breaking away from it.

Silver Moon

Violin-led country-folk instrumental. Folky violin melody with occasional harmonies soars over wistful slide guitar, gentle electric guitar, double bass and steady drums. Warm, fuzzy and sentimental, perfect for a slightly cheesy, Waltons-style, wholesome American TV show or nostalgic advert.
