Tense, bleepy electronics. Muted beats, bell-like synth melody and atmospheric electronics create a dark, futuristic, Eastern-inspired ambience. Break with cloudy electronic noise and harsh, knife-like swooshes. Back to the original zen garden beats with added urgency. Threatening, exotic and suspenseful, perfect track to accompany global espionage or a worrying high-tension situation on screen.
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.
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.
Scattered piano melody with electronic effects over a subtle ambient synth drone. Background drone grows in waves of atmospheric noise. The noise grows stronger and harsher, almost swallowing the piano notes. Another string drone swells to finish. Introspective, melancholy and reflective, suiting a moment of pause, reflecting on the past and contemplating the future. Suitable for thoughtful ending in a TV/Doc.
w/ synths: Added other-wordly synth drones and wonky sustained synth lines, giving an off-kilter edge.
w/ strings: Regal orchestral string arrangement on top of piano melody from the start, string lines intersecting in a looping counterpoint.
African jazz instrumental. Snaking double bass intro, joined by jazz drums, vibraphone, electric guitar and keyboard playing a rhythmic motif. Change of rhythm, horn blasts then saxophone melody, subtle African-jazz style, effects-heavy electric guitar solo, brass noise before vibraphone motif returns and all play until the finish. Intriguing, exotic and sensual, with hints of Mulatu Astatke and a little Fela Kuti influence, would suit a travel documentary or Film/TV scene evoking the spirit of a hot night in urban 1970s Africa.
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.
Atmospheric percussive track with strings. Erratic background noise, clanging, bashing, becomes rhythmic. Sustained string swells add further suspense before a wailing orchestral blast with a pulsating background beat. Strange, tense and unsettling, would suit a dramatic, frightening Film/TV/Doc.
Mournful string track. Atmospheric noise, sad strings and heavy piano play a desolate melody. Unsettling, resonant background noise brings a threatening new dimension. Supernatural, doom-laden and bleak, funereal music for negative adverts or hopeless TV/Film scenes.
