Melancholy solo piano track. Gentle oom-pah chord progression under a searching, emotional melody. Builds with repeated piano phrases, blossoming passionately. Romantic, nostalgic and hopeful, Paris in September…mood music for a romantic encounter on a rainy day in Autumn.
European jazz track. Plodding acoustic guitar and piano chords with steady, walking double bass, drums and accordion chords. Brazen violin plays an improvised melody on top. Accordion takes over on melody with playful snatches, before back to violin. Laid back and chilled, with a seductive and intriguing quality, perfect for advert/TV scenes evoking a retro idea of Paris – cobbled streets, tiny cars and sexy people.
Bed track available sans violin.
Mysterious multi-instrumental. Atmospheric feedback intro followed by oom-pah-pah waltz rhythm and childish marimba melody. Orchestral strings and accordion join with a Gallic-inspired melody, reminiscent of Amélie. The melancholy gives way to excitable, erratic rhythms on all instruments, before a dynamic final section with passionate violin and jumpy marimba. Magical, melancholy and manic, perfect music to accompany a rainy midnight walk through the streets of Paris, only to end up in a sleazy speakeasy at the centre of an absinthe-sodden freakshow.
Wistful solo piano. Dramatic, comedic chordal piano descent before Amélie-style European piano. Lolloping, waltz section, turns melancholy with low, stormy piano chords. Rumbling bass clef notes before the sun comes out with a bright tinkling segment, leading to a romantic waltzing around the keys. Indecisive, dramatic, tender yet troubled, would suit a European film set in on rainy Paris street, the character’s tumultuous lives at odds with their quaint surroundings.
