Gentle instrumental on piano and percussion. Melodic percussion intro rings out, like a lullaby played on gamelan and church bells. Melodic passage on harpsichord and guitar alternates with a gentle piano section. Synth strings swell, sounding like a choir. Comes to a quiet finish. Hopeful, tender and soothing, a reassuring, enveloping sound, perfect for a comforting advert for a trustworthy, caring product.
Ambient synth instrumental. New age synths glisten and sparkle, slowly shifting over time. Calm, bright and peaceful, a hopeful, quietly joyful, celestial voyage – think Carl Sagan – perfect as ambient background noise for an enlightening documentary.
Acoustic instrumental on cretan lyra and Turkish saz. Medium-paces introductory phrases, building in texture, complexity and speed, with a central melodic idea emerging. Bowed fiddle-like instrument joins with an earthy modal melodic passage, along with light, sparse percussion. Dynamic, mysterious and hypnotic, a cyclical effect of returning to the beginning, suitable for video work focused on the Middle East or Mediterranean, or a film/drama wanting an authentic, raw acoustic sound or an Arabic feel.
Summery pop instrumental. Bright synths, claps and chugging percussion introduce the happy, soaring chorus and simple melodies. Layers of warm synth build and envelop, creating a glowing ball of sunshine and fake tan. Happy, hopeful and fun, perfect music for a summer advert, optimistic TV drama, or Love Island-style sunset montage.
Moody synth instrumental. Seductive beats and atmospheric sustained synths with 90s Morcheeba-style synth melody introduces a air-punching 80s Madonna-esque synth chorus. Tense, driving and intriguing, perfect for onscreen anticipation, or a smooth, sexy and slightly cheesy action film.
Percussive hangdrum-led track. Melodic hangdrum and driving percussion lead an atmospheric instrumental. More melodic handpan section before the close. Anticipatory, excited and shrouded in mystery, perfect for nature or travel docs, imagine catching glimpses of lush foliage from train speeding high on a mountain track.
Interlude is more sparse, without the driving rhythms at first, building momentum and rhythmic intensity toward the end of the track.
Uplifting acoustic guitar-based instrumental. Strummed acoustic guitar with hopeful sustained orchestral string lines above. Builds in warmth and texture, added guitar and strings swells, ending on gentle guitar. Moving, happy and quietly epic, a contained emotional build to suit a romantic or revelatory moment onscreen.
Strange pastoral orchestral string and brass instrumental. Atmospheric drones and fleeting effects-laden brass builds in a slow anticipatory swoosh to a quiet string melody with accompanying orchestral strings. Quick repetitive prog synth chords subtle build tension underneath the otherwise sorrowful melody. Dramatic, suspenseful and strange, an exciting build that ends at it’s peak. An unusual instrumental to suit a quirky TV show, psychedelic film soundtrack or mind-expanding documentary.
Experimental, tropical instrumental with brass and percussion. Wavy brass and woodwind and sparse frenetic double bass, oud-like guitar with shakers, drums and orchestral percussion begin a 2-part musical journey in Casablanca, or some other city of intigue and passion. Marching band snare gives way to tropicalia on shakers, bass, acoustic guitar and wah wah effects. All the colour and life of a tropical jungle dances sweatily together with brass holding the Latin-style melody. Retro, intriguing yet sexy and ambient, suited to an ambitious Film/Doc or TV show set in sensual, sunny climes or an atmospheric summery advert for a passion-inducing indulgence.
Folk rock instrumental. Short ambient intro, then main intro of mandolin with strummed guitar chords, solid drums a strong bass line join, adding punch and depth. Arpeggiated synth then an electronic break with synth strings, muted, faraway drums and atmospheric synth before the drums, bass and guitar kick in again. Confident and strident, yet thoughtful, folky with a harsh rock edge, perfect TV theme music to suit a terrestrial drama, or for an adventure/travel advert for the British outdoors.
