Playful, percussive, pizzicato orchestral string track. Magical swooping strings and choppy, characterful violins duel over a swirling bed of orchestral hum with plucked violins and dynamic double bass adding further layers of texture. Quirky, pastoral and full of giddy anticipation, perfect for a nature programme on the fleeting buzzing of insect life, or equally suitable for a Christmas segment building seasonal excitement.
Quirky woodwind instrumental with experimental vocal effects. Sparse cello intro joined by pizzicato strings in jerky counterpoint. Woodwind enters with breaths used to percussive effect. Track builds with layers of rhythmic snatches to a gently minimalist cacophony. Playful and lighthearted with a rich and warm tone, perfect for a nature documentary or a comedic, mysterious Film/TV scene.
Emotional pop/rock. Drum build with sparse piano chords. Violin-like drawn-out samples mournfully yearn over the drums and piano. Strings flutter build to expressive vocal samples and more string layers. Enveloping, romantic and thoughtful, would suit a Film/TV scene of great emotional and romantic tension.
Atmospheric electronic instrumental. Layers of ambient drones suspended in mid air with hints of harmony emerging. Calm, peaceful and dreamy, suitable for a seemingly calm documentary or tv sequence with slightly shifting, moving and wandering, like a raft adrift on the ocean.
Uplifting orchestral string track. A hopeful swell of orchestral strings grows under a lush, warm string melody. A quiet, soothing electronic section before a percussive build to a euphoric string chorus with added layers of warmth and hope. Emotional, thoughtful and reassuring, a heartwarming track to suit a soothing and inspirational family advert, heightened TV Drama/Documentary scene.
Hypnotic improvisational string track on Cretan lyra. Layers of overlapping Cretan lyra play drone-like modal phrases. At 3 minutes, the various lines come together along with added percussion, to form a more driving, unified, full melody, growing in intensity with hints of Irish folk music and Arabic music, to a powerful ending. Mesmerising, contemplative and experimental, singular sounds for a documentary looking at lesser-known cultures, spiritual places or undefinable combinations of cultures.
Tense orchestral string track. Choppy violins enter with erratic melodic phrases over a foreboding sustained double bass note. Extra layers of strings interrupt each other creating a chaotic ambiance. Screeching violin samples then flurry over drums and a strong, driving, repeated melodic idea, coming to a dramatic finish. Nerve-wracking, threatening and doom-laden, a worrying barrage of string suspense, suited to an action movie scene or advert evoking this sense of exhilarating fear.
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.
Intricate guitar instrumental. Plucked acoustic guitar lines interwoven. Electric guitar with some reverb and delay effects picks out a melody on top. Electric guitar grows more prominent, sounding like an instrumental Warpaint, while the acoustic lines grow stronger and more intricate. The interplay of guitar lines creates a chiming effect. Atmospheric, melancholy and enveloping, a melancholy, hypnotic sound world, perfect for tense TV/Film/Doc moments in unfamiliar environments.
Hopeful piano solo. Bright piano notes over a repetitive, reassuring piano bass line of broken chords. Moves to fast block chords, in a delicate, waltz-like rhythm. A further layer of optimistic piano notes are added, building anticipation for a happy event or resolution. Positive, charming and happy-sad, perfect for a thoughtful, narrative advert or quaint TV/Film sequence.
