Ringworld

Fantasy synth track. Soft arpeggiated synth and ambient water sounds morph into a dreamy, repetitive synth melody. Drops to delicate wash of gentle dusky synths, morphing to a quieter sound with birds and flowing streams conjuring images of an idyllic natural world. Pastoral, combining nature and technology, beautiful, like an ambient, instrumental Grimes track, would suit nature documentaries, warm yet futuristic TV scenes and atmospheric podcasting.

The Shard

Melancholy sample-laden electronica. Pizzicato strings, joined by pastoral flute sample and orchestral sample. Harp effects interspersed with heavy syncopated beats and big D’n’B womps. Orchestral strings some to the fore midway, then settles back to the mid-tempo groove. Bold and brazen with a regal air, if Jason Bourne starred in the Wind in the Willows, perfect mash-up for dance content or tongue-in-cheek adverts.

Contemplative

Gentle piano and acoustic guitar instrumental. Simple piano melody joined by calming, repetitive acoustic guitar, a key change brings freshness before a blissful section of gentle humming strings like bees hovering on a flower. Chilled, serene and romantic, delicate music for a thoughtful nature documentary or hopeful TV/Film scene full of blossoming love.

Momento Intimo

Beautiful piano track with orchestral strings. Warm piano melody with fleeting electronic effects adding a sense of magic. Lush orchestral strings full of romantic yearning join the soulful piano. Passionate, powerful and emotional, like Debussy’s Clair de Lune, perfect piano music for a tongue-in-cheek advert or a sincere onscreen moment.

Home in the Country

Gentle acoustic guitar track with piano. Strummed acoustic guitar, bright and hopeful with subtle synth chords underneath. High register piano added, shining and sparkling on top. Lush orchestral strings enter with a hum of warm romance before a woozy, underwater break as strings and keys resonate at length. Fade out. Soft, delicate and wistful, a pastoral track with a magical feel, perfect for nature programming, hopeful TV scenes or warm and wholesome adverts.

Queen of the Bees

Playful, percussive, pizzicato orchestral string track. Magical swooping strings and choppy, characterful violins duel over a swirling bed of orchestral hum with plucked violins and dynamic double bass adding further layers of texture. Quirky, pastoral and full of giddy anticipation, perfect for a nature programme on the fleeting buzzing of insect life, or equally suitable for a Christmas segment building seasonal excitement.

Glasshouse Studies I

Emotional piano track. Melancholy piano melody with sparse chords. Warm, comforting woodwind joins on countermelody, bringing hope and a glimmer of sunshine. Sentimental, contemplative and brooding, perfect for a subtly heartfelt advert or emotive charity video piece.

Endlessly Haydn Eggs

Quirky woodwind instrumental with experimental vocal effects. Sparse cello intro joined by pizzicato strings in jerky counterpoint. Woodwind enters with breaths used to percussive effect. Track builds with layers of rhythmic snatches to a gently minimalist cacophony. Playful and lighthearted with a rich and warm tone, perfect for a nature documentary or a comedic, mysterious Film/TV scene.

Roots (Suite)

Acoustic guitar and piano track with experimental elements. Gentle acoustic guitar punctuated with electronic noise and water sounds. Joined by warm piano and hints of playfully subtle saxophone, minor chords growing in intensity and turning to major for a hopeful finish. Mysterious, cheeky and subversive, brings to mind a magical woodland scene of trees going walkies while your back is turned. Perfect for TV/Film/Docs, pastoral settings and subtly powerful storytelling.

Bed version is more intimate, featuring more raw, sparse acoustic guitar, brings out the scratchy, barely-there violin and teasing background noise.

Impressions of a Choice

Lush orchestral track. Simple, questioning piano introduction leads to sweeping, pastoral strings before a full orchestral mid-section with developed piano melodies and playful woodwind and brass blasts. Hopeful, romantic and soaringly positive, 1980s soap opera meets the Animals of Farthing Wood, romance with a dash of danger.
