Tense, bleepy electronics. Muted beats, bell-like synth melody and atmospheric electronics create a dark, futuristic, Eastern-inspired ambience. Break with cloudy electronic noise and harsh, knife-like swooshes. Back to the original zen garden beats with added urgency. Threatening, exotic and suspenseful, perfect track to accompany global espionage or a worrying high-tension situation on screen.
Naive hyperpop. Catchy synth melody over sweet synths and a serious beat build. Beat drops, wobbly synths, whooshing samples and warm, enveloping, pretty chords. Another build, squeaky synths and a beat break. Happy, sincere, cute and sparkly, like the bonkers kawaii of PC Music, or computer game music, perfect for Reality TV montages/interludes, or adverts for young and fun summer festivals, or rainbow computer game fantasy worlds.
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.
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.
Cinematic track with Japanese elements. Sustained synth strings and a plucked Japanese-style melody on a hammer-dulcimer. Effects-laden, quacking synth break before returning to the regal, traditional-style melodic idea over anticipatory percussion. Reserved, expectant, hopeful and adventurous, perfect for a game soundtrack or for a fantasy-movie sequence featuring a noble, brave character setting off on an important, magical quest.
Solo jazz piano. Romantic intro of blissful exotic jazz chords, full melody of chordal 4ths calls to mind Erik Satie or Japanese-inspired classical composition a là Madame Butterfly. Delicate waltz section, playing around with the same Eastern-inspired chords. Hopeful, loving, content, would suit a romantic Film/TV scene where a smitten character floats on a wave of love. Would also suit a soothing, peaceful advert for a beautiful object or luxurious service.
