Queen of the Bees

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.

The Enchantress of the North

Pastoral woodwind septet. Flute melodies interweave, while others playfully arpeggiate underneath and and provide a walking bass line, moving merrily as one unit. Jaunty, thoughtful and enchanting, dancing from a dewy meadow into the dark woodlands of a frightening fairytale, perfect for fantastical films and TV scenes, as well as ads or elevated reality TV: Houses and Gardens of Great Britain or suchlike.

State of Mind

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.

In-Sen

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.

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.

Laid Bare 2

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.
