Tense, atmospheric electronica. Synth riff with added vocal samples and whooshing, fat synths underneath. Sparse, slightly tropical, subtle beats materialise, synths and vocals bubble up and cut through the murky atmosphere. Downbeat, moody, dark and slightly magical, reminiscent of a more 90s Arca, intriguing beats draw us in to another world, swampy and hazy, perfect for a mellow TV/Doc/Film scene or as sombre yet hopeful background music.
Multi-instrumental contemporary folk. Gentle marimba intro, joined by sustained violin and cello fragments. Tinkling piano mimics the strings, leading to a darkening of mood and intense, high register string-lead movement. Resolves to gently swaying, lingering light strings and piano. Next section feels like gentle rocking in an ocean trawler. Harp and strings duel steadily to a choppy finale. Intriguing, dynamic and searching, a curious, undulating, seafaring piece, perfect for mysterious TV/Doc scenes.
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.
Atmospheric new age-style instrumental. Glistening, shimmering drums and effects-laden electric guitars with steel pan drums conjure a magical realm. Becomes slightly more sombre but still sparkles with hope. Gentle, calming and ambient, a spacey meditation, prefect for ethereal advert or reflective TV/Film/Doc scenes.
Acoustic guitar track with female vocals. Slow intro of plucked, Spanish-style guitar with atmospheric reverb. Grows more fast-paced. Ethereal female vocals introduced at end. Sultry, mysterious and slightly melancholy, would suit a shot panning an arid landscape, or a strange romance on TV/Film, anticipation, lust and confusion in the desert.
Plinky-plonky electronic track. Muted, gentle kalimba-like keyboard notes with a tinkling percussive glockenspiel-like motif above. A growing wash of calming synth emerges from beneath. Meditative, warm, mellow and reflective, like bathing in calming sound, with African-style melodic percussion but Icelandic, glassy like Amiina, perfect for a gentle, family advert or introspective TV/Film/Doc scene.
Sparkling electronica. Glassy synth intro, expanding crystals of synthesised sound, glittering in the light. Soft steady beat under delicate arpeggiated synths, fast rainbow synth notes flit by above a rising sustained synth string section. Calm descends. Bubbling synths and flute-like electronics join gentle, clear electric guitar, building anticipation. Magical, delicate and drenched in muted pastel colours, a prismatic unfolding of synthesised sounds imitating nature. Perfect accompaniment and contrast to a documentary about the natural world, science and nature combine in a fantastical future.
Intriguing mid-tempo electronic track. Shaker and hand drum-style percussion, twinkling electronics, bright, glassy synths and sustained atmospheric synth chords unfold and expand. Sustained synth grows in intensity, organ style synth chords chime out, cutting through the dreamscape. Dense, magical, ethereal and futuristic with hints of tension and discord. Feels like a voyage of discovery in a utopian future world, or a personal journey of realisation.
Uplifting orchestral track. Warm orchestral strings and sparkling percussion with added harp, drums and choral vocals. A merry dance with a festive feel, somehow Christmassy although imbued with golden sunshine. Delicate, bright and brimming with hope, would suit an advert for an exciting, magical event or a warm and hopeful TV/Film moment.
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.
