Reflection

Solo piano track. Slow-paced piano motif, repeated, joined by ghostly effects-laden single piano notes, building anticipation. Further piano layers added and subtle sustained strings and a soft pulsating beat. Atmospheric, suspenseful and pensive. The clue is in the title, perfect for an onscreen moment of reflection, introspection, a decision in the making, moving slowly but surely toward new possibilities, leaving the past behind.

Sentient

Dark synth track. Mid-tempo distorted synth pulse to start. Dreamy synth washes over the track, added fragments of soft synth melody with fuzzy synth tendrils curling up through the unrelenting, motorik beat. Machines meet nature. Full of suspense and anticipation but with a hint of excitement, a shocking surprise could be just around the corner. Suitable for a tense scene, or as sombre, atmospheric music for a cutting edge documentary.

Contagion

Dark electronic slow build. Menacing repeated bass synth line like Darth Vader humming a Kraftwerk tune, added synth line slowly expands outward, grows higher in register, fizzling, fleeting electro noises pulsate. Threatening, tense and foreboding, a nerve-wracking wait as the symptoms develop, perfect for a sombre TV/Documentary moment, a suspenseful film scene or cautionary advert.

Dark City Drone

Atmospheric electronic soundscape. Creaking, crackling electronics, sustained synth drones, reverb electronics and industrial sound effects. Dark, ambient and foreboding, subtle background music for a tense documentary.

The End

Sparse piano chords, emotional, sustained strings, moves to repeated piano phrases and single strings line. A resigned conclusion. Pensive, desolate and heartfelt, suitable for the downbeat aftermath of a seismic event on TV/Film, or a warning advert.

Take The Breath (Instrumental)

Synth-pop instrumental. Synth motif over crisp, steady beats with woozy synth layers and snatches of melody on top. Motorik, moody, atmospheric. Darkness smeared with bright colour, suitable for a moody montage on Film/TV, a cool nighttime scene or fashion/lifestyle advertising.

Glass Lip

An atmospheric soundscape of extended strings and electronic drones. Synth and strings drones undulate while a sparse, heavily processed guitar punctuates. The pace quickens with more prominent synth before a fade out. Atmospheric, ambient, silvery and cold- ideal for a tense TV scene, a moment of reflection and introspection for our character as he gazes out on a cold, barren landscape.

Forêt de Broceliande

Sad solo flute. That’s it. And you don’t need anything more, perfect for a lament over the hills of war casualties, shredded flags rustle in a somber wind. And in her chamber, lady Guinevere brushes her hair as she softly sings to the ghosts of her fallen loved ones.

Playground Piano (Suite)

A short, resonant piano piece. Piano chord progression, reminiscent of church music, played with similar conviction and reverence. Full of awe, intensity, certainty, love, with a hint of sadness. Suitable for an emotional moment on film or TV, a funeral, or a moment of loss or of great change, reverent and respectful, heavy with emotion. Would also suit an advert suggesting sunshine after the rain.

Extended version features broken chords, as well as contemplative glockenspiel.

Extended version with Strings features sustained orchestral string swells, and glockenspiel. More emotional and immersive.

Haunted Music Box

Haunting simple and cinematic, with music box, angelic vocals, piano and orchestral strings, including a searching solo violin. If you are looking for a magical and macabre setting for something you’ve hit gold. This will suit pretty much anything from fantasy adverts to Brother’s Grimm fairy tales. You can almost hear someone narrating over the top. Brilliant.
