Oud Taksim

Improvisatory oud track. Meandering oud solo, measured and spacious, with pauses full of resonance and contemplation. Expressive, contemplative and meditative, perfect music to accompany a middle Eastern landscape on screen, vast, beautiful and unpredictable.

Amazing Dream Coat

Epic orchestral track with electric guitar and piano. Single atmospheric piano notes ring out over an ambient wash of noise. Orchestral strings introduced with a chorus effect building sense of serenity and calm. Brazen electric guitar cuts through the atmosphere with bombastic chord bursts. Sparse but rhythmic piano chords add a pulse then drop out. Quiet section of meandering piano and gentle strings to finish. Calm and peaceful, then surprisingly powerful, a psychedelic adventure, like if The Who made a meditation album, perfect for a documentary about the natural world or an inspiring, motivating advert.

Due

Atmospheric electronic track with accordion. Broken underwater synth chords, bloopy, deep and mellow, build a beguiling atmosphere. Soon joined by freely melodic, meandering accordion giving it a French flair as watery chords and deep sea synths lay down calming chords and mermaid choruses. Magical, vast and deep, a hopeful, experimental track perfect as documentary background music or for a Gallic product or film, or to accompany a frightened mermaid morphing back to human form.

Mea Culpa

Uplifting piano-led build. Strange delicate guitar, wispy sustained strings, sombre piano chords, floating overtones, before a dramatic entry by spirited, melodic piano, determined drums and feel-good orchestral strings. Curious, pensive and meandering before a powerful, driven, excited outburst. Suitable for a dramatic change in tone on TV/Adverts. This week on Celebrity Tummy Tuck, one of the group is packing their bags and on their way home…or are they?? NO! Everyone gets to stay, and go on a yacht!!!

A Father’s Grip

Thoughtful acoustic guitar folk instrumental. Slow and pensive folky melodic acoustic guitar intro. A pause then a faster section, with finger-picking repetitive folk/blues guitar. A more meandering, explorative section follows into a more upbeat improv-style, rootsy country/folk section. Contemplative at first, then hopeful and positive, yet low-key. Bert Jansch with hints of boogie-woogie, a guitar journey to accompany reflective, traditional scenes on TV/Film/Adverts.

Ambling

Relaxed reggae/jazz track. Mellow, plodding bass with a slow guitar skank to start. Laid back brass enters, piano solos around the same riff, followed by a strange meandering reverb-heavy sax solo. All then riff together to an unexpected electronic ending. Warm, relaxed, jazzy yet sparse, subtle reggae to suit a blissed-out advert or Film/TV scenes of lazing on a Caribbean island, or chilling in a hot and hazy inner city block party.

Farewell Lionhead

Solo jazz piano. Thoughtful, slow-paced jazz piano chords, old-fashioned jazz meandering, feeling semi-improvised with passages resolving on sweet chords or questioning chord clusters. Melancholy, pensive and full of longing, would suit a classic film scene, a là Casablanca, lonely hearts gaze into their whisky sodas…nobody understands like the piano player.

If You Were Mine

Jazz piano solo. Relaxed jazz chords, sparse and measured. A tense repeated phrase leads to a pensive, sombre melody with hints of hope from high piano notes. A meandering improv-like melody deviates from the original chords progression before a quiet, content ending. Thoughtful, intense and reflective, a moody piano number perfect for a the heightened tension of a romantic love scene. Two star-crossed lovers on separate paths through rain soaked streets. One in Paris, the city of lights, the other in Woody Allen’s New York…will their paths ever meet again?

That’s for Eating With

Quirky instrumental. Dramatic opening, sustained keys and brass, sounds like the electronic rainbow blasts of Animal Collective. Gives way to a meandering jazz saxophone joined by a brass blast then an unexpected quirky percussive section with piano and a big build, all instruments in, like the finale of a stadium rock concert. Sparse breathy saxophone section before another epic blast of noise. Solo sax then all instruments in, strings, drums, percussion, vocals and brass with drum crashes and wallops before a peaceful end. Bombastic and epic with slow, thoughtful sections, a fun mix of styles and moods, would suit a silly Film/TV scene humorous advert for a bonkers product.
