Embrace the Silence

Melancholy piano waltz. Minor key piano progression to begin, looped under repeated single piano note motif. Higher register introduced and single notes become chords, building texture and anticipation. A piano melody emerges, soft and lyrical, growing higher and more powerful. Introspective and emotional, the sound of heartbreak and longing. Perfect for tense, emotional television and documentaries. A pleading lover, a harsh rebuke…left alone in silence.

Circles

Lyrical solo piano track. Ripples of gentle piano, repetitive descending motifs like rainfall. Grows in intensity, joined by deep, emotive strings. Returns to slowed-down solo piano. Lush, heady and nostalgic, suitable for pensive onscreen longing. Still yearning for lost love but soon the world opens up afresh in the cycle of life.

Time and Memory

Gentle piano track with subtle orchestral strings. Repetitive piano motif builds, orchestral strings join, growing in intensity before a return to the lyrical solo piano. Warm, string swell rejoins, returns to solo piano. Lush, powerful and beautiful, would suit a pensive Film/TV/Doc scene encapsulating a sense of longing and nostalgia.

I Still Carry A Torch for You

Sentimental country slide guitar track. Emotional electric guitar, gentle slide guitar, easy-going piano and lyrical violin with soft drums. Nostalgic, warm and soothing, suitable for a comforting advert for wholesome American-style goods, or as background music evoking the good ol’ days when times were bad.

Bat Milk

Chilled jazzy reggae track. Slow piano skank and tip-toeing bass guitar intro with surf-style guitar effects and laid back drums. Brass plays a lyrical melody that sounds like a raised eyebrow, joined by subtle sustained keyboard chords. Saxophone takes a solo, accompanied by jazz drums and skanking guitar keeping the relaxed, mid-tempo beat. Back to melody on brass, before a keyboard solo like The Specials’ Ghost Town and a fade out. Thoughtful and searching, yet relaxed and easy-going, perfect for a Film/TV scene where the protagonist is on a solo journey of discovery in a new place or a strange, intriguing situation. Would also suit an advert for a new, exotic and surprisingly tasty food or beverage.

Unsettled

Tense orchestral track. Piano intro, chiming marimba, melancholy lyrical cello solo, threatening piano chords and deep, dangerous double bass builds to more tense, dynamic section. Wailing violins and high piano notes spell an underlying threat. Intriguing, suspenseful and chilling at times, murder-mystery music, would suit a tense film scene or an elegantly violent high society thriller.

Playtime

Playful woodwind track. Busy orchestral strings, lyrical woodwind and jaunty, tinkling piano. Pastoral, fun and light-hearted, evoking the British countryside, would suit a cheerful advert or TV/Film scene about the beauty and wonder of the natural world.

The Old Tree Swing

Lyrical solo piano track. Gentle undulating piano arpeggios with bright, hopeful piano melody above. Introspective, quiet, melancholy moment, brightening to the original melody. Peaceful, thoughtful, searching and nostalgic, a piano journey through idyllic American countryside, watching from the car window, memories flooding in as the patchwork fields flicker by.

60 secs and 30 secs ad length versions available.

Tonight We Drink Wine and Dance

Melancholy solo piano. Amélie-style minor oom-pah chords, growing in intensity and embellishment throughout the track. Another line of piano plays a lyrical melody above the regular chords. An energetic chorus brings a modulation and intricate break. Back to opening chords for a finish. Emotional and wretched, yet passionate, would suit an advert or TV scene requiring Gallic charm and impulsive, reckless emotion.

‘Underscore’ version features chords only, no melody line.

Requiem for L Lawson

Live instrumental acoustic guitar saga. Raw blues/folk acoustic guitar melody, repetitive melodic motifs. Lyrical mid-section to a more tense, frantic part, alternating between drama and calm moments. End section is like something out of a Western film, tense and sparse, with dramatic slide guitar, to a hopeful finger-picking final section. Sombre, dramatic and epic with moments of light, the nature of the live recording adding interesting imperfections. Different sections would suit various Film/TV/Documentary moments, would suit an American road trip or a nature documentary explore the American Wild West.
