Spacey drone soundscape. Electronic drone like a radiophonic sound experiment builds to include brass and orchestral instruments, suddenly situating us in outer space. Shifting chords give a note of hope and positivity, pizzicato orchestral strings tip-toe on the floating drone bed. Strings reach a minor chord, a hint of danger before a quiet resolution. Meditative, floaty and dreamy, a calm and peaceful journey through the quiet of space with hints of tension, perfect for a documentary about celestial bodies or a human drama on the big screen.
Atmospheric hang drum track. Repeated melodic phrase on handpan, like heavy water droplets. Synth drones and hangdrum overtones hang still and suspended in the atmosphere. Woodwind-like sustained notes and percussive hits add colour. Calm, thoughtful and introspective. Still and reflective with a hint of mystery, perfect for nature docs or mysterious, other-worldly film scenes.
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.
Tense acoustic guitar track. Acoustic guitar riff, repeated, building anticipation. Electric guitar line joins, building the texture. Electric guitar effects added, delay creates a chiming effect. Guitar layers added, creating a cacophonous, reverberating atmosphere. Wordless female vocals join, like a flamenco song or Portugese fado. Earthy, meditative and tense. Would suit a dramatic TV/Film moment, a female wailing, like Mother Nature herself crying out.
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.
Contrasting electronic drone tracks. Electronic feedback, harsh waves of low frequency sound, an electronic wave-like pulse the only rhythm. Dark, uncomfortable and atmospheric, would suit a tense, disconcerting TV/Film sequence.
Drone 2 is more dreamlike, waves of ambient sound, cleansing, meditative, healing.
Dreamy electronic soundscapes. Atmospheric electronic noise, warm synth swells, bleepy electronics and fresh waves of cool ambience. Thoughtful, introspective and inspiring, a refreshing walk on an electronic beach, would suit strange Film/TV situations…otherwordly, operating on a different plane.
Build track, added electronics tinkling synth line and swooping synth waves.
Slow-paced acoustic guitar track with drones. Dramatic, sparse acoustic guitar intro, breaks into a melancholy, reflective melody, accompanied by a sitar-like string drone. Introspective, meditative and pensive, bringing to mind the desolate landscapes of Western films, as well as Indian classical music and Spanish guitar, a global wanderer to suit a tense or thoughtful Film/TV moment.
Atmospheric piano track. Gentle piano chords with reverb effects, subtle synth with warming, female vocal effect, synth string line, piano chords build and intensify. Meditative, quiet, searching and heavy with longing, would suit as emotional mood music for a mournful but hopeful TV/Film/Advert sequence.
Atmospheric strings track. Duelling raspy string effects, subtle ambient noise, subtle electronic drone imitating string overtones. Tense, suspended, unmoving, claustrophobia on a loop, would suit an uncertain situation that shows no sign of being resolved.
Piano version lighter, with more movement from the intermittent piano. For more hopeful onscreen situations.
Gamelan version lighter, more soothing and meditative.
