Listen to the Dialogue While I Do My Thing

Atmospheric synth instrumental. Layers of echoing synth. Fat, warm, 80s reverb-laden sound. Sombre orchestral string effect, chiming piano and glacial beats gives a serious, driving feeling. Intriguing, mysterious and strange, Twin Peaks-style ambience crossed with Enya and the Crimewatch theme tune, would suit a dark TV drama or as tension-building background music to an eye-opening documentary.

WMOTW

Warm piano and marimba track. Repetitive, emotional piano, warm orchestral strings swell and mellow melodic marimba. Calm, relaxed and romantic, would suit an advert for a loving product that will protect your family, or as background music for positive campaign videos and documentaries.

Addiction Instrumental

Throbbing electronic instrumental. Chunky synth, crunchy beats, laser synth and a glassy melody. Tightly wound with dramatic breaks before opening to a warm bass and dreamy synth section. Tense, serious and threatening before a mellow change. Would suit a moody advert or TV/Film scene featuring a tense, urban scenario.

Even Once (Suite)

Wistful solo jazz piano. A sustained note intro like raindrops followed by jazz chords, piano trills and a full melody. Pastoral, breathless and new, calling to mind the natural landscape, would suit a thoughtful film/doc/TV scene passing over a lush landscape refreshed and awake after a storm or a long winter.

Multi-instrumental version with warm strings, mellow saxophone and shuffling percussion joined by tinkling piano and a freak folk chorus of faraway voices, calling to mind Wickerman-style pagan England.

Sunrise Acoustic

Uplifting acoustic guitar track. Gentle, hopeful acoustic guitar riff, sparse drum beats punctuate the melody. Shaker percussion, piano chords and subtle bass guitar introduced. A slight build then back to the opening mood. Mellow, warm and positive, evoking the potential of America’s wide open plains. Would suit a cosy TV sequence or a advert for a company who want to take life’s problems off your hands. Sunshine after the rain.

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.

Peaceful Place

A 90s-inspired-by-the-70s chill-out jazzy hip hop jam with drums, bass and keys. Drums and bass keep things steady as mellow repeated keyboard chords and a twinkling keyboard motif play on top. Cool, romantic, laid back and warm, this mellow jam would suit retro tv and film scenes where our character drives or struts through familiar streets.

The glass lake

Somber and ethereal, with a piercing violin, a mellow vibraphone, and a classical piano that dialogue in a very physical and earthy performance in the vein of mid 1800s classical sonatas. Structured in 4 parts, the violin acts as a connector between all the sections and bridges firstly the vibraphone and then the piano, before returning solo for the coda. High quality execution that will fit dramas with a sense of sadness and longing with a seethed edge.

Windswept

Emotional and delicate, a pianoforte performance that makes sapient use of harmonics and arpeggio technique to deliver a poignant yet firm episode of music. It builds a substantial amount of emotional content without never being too blatant or showy. This would suit romantic dramas and similar applications, possibly where a solo character is involved.

Girl from Sandymount beach

Delicate and touching, with a gentle piano performance and an acoustic guitar that make for a tender impression in the vein of melancholic comedies but also period dramas. An acoustic guitar introduces us to the theme in the first 20 seconds, creating the space in the middle part for a grand piano to complement the scene. Towards the end of the piece the latter is protagonist and uses both hands to fulfil the arrangement.
