Brigitte

Acoustic country-jazz track. Acoustic guitar chords and double bass lay down the rhythm for a jazzy acoustic guitar line, country-style violin plays call and answer with guitar, breezy snippets of virtuosic soloing. Playful, cheeky and brazen, suitable for a TV/Documentary segment about good ol’ country life or an advert for mouth-watering, home cooking.

Bed track features acoustic guitar chords, double bass and percussion only.

Babette

Quick, violin-led jazz waltz. Violin leads with fast, intricate melody line soaring over a bed of laid-back jazz waltz rhythm on double bass, Spanish guitar and percussion. Spanish guitar takes a solo, over the soft, shuffle of acoustic guitar and percussion. Violin returns.Intriguing, mysterious and positive, European jazz for an advert traversing the cobbled streets of a French city in a new Renault, or for a bright-eyed, Woody Allen-style cinematic love letter to Europe.

Bed track has no violin or guitar solos, more prominent double bass.

Acoustic Roaming

Happy-go-lucky acoustic guitar track. Lightly strummed acoustic guitar, bass guitar and soft drums introduce 60s Hammond organ style keyboards, and shaker percussion. A chorus of sustained chords on keys and electric guitar flourishes before a quieter guitar and percussion section. Back to full sound for an upbeat finish. Cheerful, hopeful and chilled, laid back fun, suitable for a upbeat, positive advert for a nifty service that will make life easier, or a product that will brighten your day. Also suitable for light-hearted documentaries.

Friday (Woohoo!)

Upbeat rock track. Uptempo electric guitar, bass and drums, classic blues rock with fun vocal ‘woohoo’s. Catchy and engaging, like The White Stripes’ ‘Fell in Love with a Girl’. Loud, brash and ridiculously positive, perfect for an advert for weekend shenanigans, a tasty new beer or a fun foodstuff that can be shared at a big party for all your favourite people. Woohoo!

The Forest of Deception

Orchestral epic with vocal effects. Choppy, rousing orchestral strings with a sparkling choral line, bell effects and deep woodwind melodic snatches. Playful orchestral phrases, lively and excited, interspersed with sustained strings and dramatic bursts of percussive, lyrical cinematic bombast. Dramatic, hopeful and driven, perfect adventure music for fun adverts or dramatic Film/TV scenes – sailing the seven seas, defending your honour, defeating baddies, all in a day’s work.

Bonds

Acoustic guitar, piano and percussion. Dynamic, jazzy percussion, strange drum rhythms and a disconnected piano melody. Unpredictable and off-kilter. Emotional orchestral strings mingle with playful percussion and jaunty acoustic guitar. String section, soaring, beautiful violins glide above the rattling drums and jittery guitar. Mysterious, enigmatic and pensive. A strange world that draws you in down the rabbit hole, would suit sophisticated adverts or curious TV/Film/Doc scenes.

Sleepcloud

Orchestral string-led instrumental with harp. Melodic harp solo, bright and hopeful, joined by orchestral strings playing lush, sustained notes and rich marimba. Harp takes on a jaunty rhythm under the sturdy strings. A marimba break, before a bubbling harp and percussion duel takes place under languid violin. Warm marimba like giant water droplets breaks out into an excited rhythm. A marimba break once more, before a return to the lazy string melody. Woozy, relaxed and hypnotic, like a Joanna Newsom instrumental evoking the natural world, would suit nature documentaries or thoughtful Film/TV scenes.

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.

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.
