Snippet of dreamy 1940s big band music. Lush orchestral strings, tinkling piano, shuffling drums and a warm, vocal chorus swell effect. Warm, retro and uplifting, jazzy, old-fashioned music for swaying gently to, at the holidays, while dressed to the nines, in 1940s America.
Spacey synth track. Arpeggiated robotic synth, blobby beats, steady drums, stellar synth sound effects. Futuristic, celestial and expansive, perfect Kraftwerk-style retro soundtrack to a fun documentary or a playful advert. The sound of the future, as imagined in the ’70s.
Pensive solo piano waltz. Waltz rhythm to begin with with a mournful, romantic accompanying melody. Opens into an oom pah pah section with tinkling high piano notes before returning to the original wistful theme. Sombre and melancholy yet idealistic and romantic, European in style and mood, calling to mind French clowns with sad faces, this would suit a scene in a moody European film or a thoughtful documentary.
Country-style violin-led track. Walking bass, drums, gently strummed guitar and a jaunty fiddle melody. Energetic electric slide guitar solo introduced in new section. Fiddle rejoins and plays a countermelody. Laid-back and happy, reminiscent of Spongebob Squarepants’ underwater backwater, perfect for a kitsch ode to the old country on Film/TV or a jokey advert.
Plodding open-ended synth track with strings. Blobby beats, serious 80s/90s synths and dramatic choppy strings over a relentless steady beat. Stern, sophisticated and exotic, would suit a dramatic film scene featuring glamourous European subterfuge, or an advert for a classy product that will drive others mad with jealousy.
Cute retro video game music. Fat synth arpeggios and high pitched synth intro before a head-bopping blobby synth and beat section with cutesy synth flourishes. Ridiculously, relentlessly happy and positive, 8-bit sunshine and rainbows, suitable for an upbeat advert for a fun event or product.
Feel-good piano, guitar and vocal track. Easy-going acoustic guitar and a groovy piano melody to start with jazzy finger snaps, tambourine and playful Hammond organ. Kids simple vocal scat enters, giving a Sesame Street vibe. Happy, content, bright and hopeful, a fun, laid-back ditty for quirky adverts with cute puppies, or as a kids TV theme tune.
60 sec, 30 sec and 15 sec ad length versions available.
Bouncy piano and brass track. Two distinct moods in one piece. Slow, atmospheric piano section begins, before taking us on a rollicking ride on a gypsy caravan, bursting into playful oom-pah-pah piano, trumpet and double bass section with humorous vocal ‘hups’ and ‘moos’. A drum break, then piano solo with hyperactive ascending piano trills and a brass accompaniment. Ends on the thoughtful, wistful slow section once again. Pensive at first then jolly, brash and fun, would suit an advert with a distinct change in mood, from sophisticated European philosophising to a crazy Balkan farm party where the goat is driving a tractor into a barn full of chickens and trumpets.
Bollywood -style track with a contemporary R’n’B edge. A snaking sitar line is followed by tablas and an electronic beat. A flute melody joins before moving to a more intense, dramatic orchestral string section. Vocal samples and a change of rhythm with jazzy hip hop drums, before going back to the original sitar motif. Seductive, mysterious, intense and edgy, would suit adverts for products reflecting diverse city environments where the traditional and the contemporary mingle; or a TV/Film sequence referencing an edgy version of the Bollywood aesthetic.
Breezy lounge-jazz number on saxophone, piano, strings and drums. Sax melody introduced from the beginning. Smooth sax solo accompanied by piano, drums and strings before return to the melody and a fade out. Smooth and laid-back, suitable for a TV or Film montage or link sequence, or a nostalgic advert. Frasier meets 1980s/90s lounge music.
