The Party Wall

Ambient electronics with piano and strings. Bleepy electronic intro with subtle, chiming piano notes cutting through the soundscape. Strings creep in before a powerful, low-register strings swell overwhelms the track and radio samples add a layer of intensity and discord. Tense, ambient and emotional, dramatic background music for a hard-hitting documentary or uneasy TV drama.

The Militant Upcycle

Bloopy, psychedelic electronic track. Gentle, reverb-laden synth patterns, repeated, morphing into a noisier sound, growing more intense. A wash of fuzzy, atmospheric noise drowns out the synth melodies. Hints of My Bloody Valentine, Stereolab, Broadcast and Air, sepia-tinted electronics mingle with harsh noise in a satisfying contrast. Warm, gentle, searching and plodding to begin with, more intense, powerful and expansive as the track progresses. Perfect atmospheric film or documentary music, retro-futuristic and edgy, reminiscent of the Lost in Translation soundtrack.

Armageddon Voucher

Bloopy electronic with feedback and sound effects. Opening synth phrase on repeat, creating a sense of propulsion. Noise and deep, grounding sound effects create a dark, murky atmosphere. Grows in volume and intensity before the noise drops out halfway through. The synth idea drops out and woozy, dreamlike synth drones are drowned out by harsh electronic feedback noise. Driving, hopeful and tense to begin with, then abstract, intense and overwhelming. Perfect for a sci-fi world or frightening documentary about the future of humankind.

The Second Turning of the Wheel

Other-worldly electronics. Bleeps, feedback, buzzing, noise, vinyl scratching under the needle, sound effects and atmospheric drones all intermingle to create an ambient electronic patchwork. The soundscape brightens with more melodic drones and reflective synth lines introduced. Thoughtful, introspective, yet vast and expansive, a world turning inside and out. Suitable for an intense, mind-expanding documentary, or for suspenseful or darkly dramatic TV moments.

Old Roots

Melancholy solo piano track. Thoughtful, yearning piano melody over simple, repeated two-note patterns on piano. Grows in volume and intensity with lower register piano accompaniment and added interest with Bach-like modulation. Slow, solemn and restrained, a desolate piece, perfect for a quiet onscreen tragedy or a rain-sodden, lonely, rural scene of sparse neglect.

Chiaroscuro

Ambient synth track. Sustained synth and brass chords, melting into each other, creating a rich, warm, soundscape. Slowly shifting chord movement, bright and hopeful, growing in intensity. Dreamlike, peaceful and sublime, perfect background music for a calming scene of intense beauty on Film/TV, or images of the natural world.

A Happy Death

Solemn atmospheric piano-led track with orchestral strings. Starts with a string drone that builds in force and dissonance. Single piano and glockenspiel notes tinkle on the edges. This fades out and is replaced by regular melancholy piano chords with ambient percussive rattles and mouse-like squeaks adding a layer of intrigue. Intense and melancholy yet playful, an unusual combination of sounds to suit an off-kilter film or quirky yet sombre advert.

Breeze

Atmospheric electronic track. Japanese-sounding chiming percussion, textural water sounds, shakers, rattling beats and melodic beats growing in intensity. A definitive gong and a trail of dripping water to finish. Evoking the natural world, as well as ancient Eastern wisdom, ethereal, thoughtful and intense, like a more urgent version of the Lost in Translation soundtrack, or the original music for American Beauty, curious and evocative, suitable for intriguing adverts, soul-searching TV/Film or nature documentaries.

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.

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.
