Thoughtful orchestral string track. String intro like a Purcell opera, gives way to warm, tinkling piano with sensitive string accompaniment, lush and lyrical with a slightly Baroque feel, piano acting as walking bass. Marimba arpeggios join later, adding an off-kilter, unexpected further element to the mix. Intriguing and hopeful yet conflicted, a steady piece of music,gliding through genres. Would suit a TV/Film drama, documentary or advert conjuring a regal past with a hint of eccentricity.
Full bodied laid back hip hop, I can see California lens flare, sunny cruising past beautiful people, feels urban but crisp with bold beats, lush synth chords and intricate DJ scratching. Clean, fresh and cool, with a sense of power and style. Would work in promos, car related programmes, or any stylish showcase segment. Like Summertime by Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince, but without Will Smith trying to rap and much much cooler. Highlight is the massive chorus section at 1:16 – full of sweet synth impact.
Dreamy multi-instrumental track. Gentle, swaying, looped piano motif, joined by bright, pealing keys, hypnotic and cyclical. Moves to a jazz keyboard sound, joined by violin and cello sharing fragments of melody. High register violin and ascending keys drive the melody to an anticipatory hight point. A new section: soft, tender Satie-like chordal piano, joined by breathy sustained strings. A soothing variation on the original motif to finish. Romantic, thoughtful and other-worldly,a sonic dream, astral wanderings with one foot in the 20th century. Would suit a reflective TV scene or a very beautiful documentary.
Atmospheric electronic track. Drum machine beats joined by chordal intro on synth. Arpeggiated synth plays a repetitive melody. Warm sustained synths underpin the bright, clear, undulating melody, fresh like rainwater. Extra texture with added beats and ambient synth. Intriguing, optimistic and cool, soothing synths bringing to mind water droplets on new saplings, cool rocks and epic green/blue vistas. Sounding a bit like Santigold, perfect for stylish eco-advertising, a flashy electric car driving through a crisp mountain road, or travel Documentaries.
Atmospheric electronic track. Japanese-sounding chiming percussion, textural water sounds, shakers, rattling beats and melodic beats growing in intensity. A definitive gong and a trail of dripping water to finish. Evoking the natural world, as well as ancient Eastern wisdom, ethereal, thoughtful and intense, like a more urgent version of the Lost in Translation soundtrack, or the original music for American Beauty, curious and evocative, suitable for intriguing adverts, soul-searching TV/Film or nature documentaries.
Light electronic track. Tranquil atmospheric electronics, bleepy sounds, vocal samples and warm synth mix with a mellow throbbing beat and upbeat percussion. Delicate electronic break, gentle swooshes and muted beats. Drums kick in, build anticipation over the gentle bed track. A snare drum section followed by an understated yet triumphant chordal synth build. Joyous, anticipatory and considered, elation but in a classy way, sounds like a more upbeat Beach House or Au Revoir Simone, low key but playful, perfect as background music for a positive, thought-provoking charity video, or for slightly suspenseful reality TV montages.
Electronic synth track. Breezy synth intro with chunky tropical beats underneath. Chilled beats and a laid back lounge vibe. Synth build to a funkier section, more prominent funk bass guitar and catchy synth motif. Fresh, colourful and bright, synth sunshine, calming background music in a luxury elevator or lounging in a flashy spa. “Been around the world and ay-ay-ay…” Lisa Stansfield lounging in early 90s ibiza, perfect for smooth and cheesy adverts and similar TV.
Pastoral folk on solo acoustic guitar. Quiet, thoughtful chordal motifs and finger-picking guitar. Moving from minor to major like the sun breaking through the clouds. Gentle, introspective and tentative, yet hopeful, perfect for a spare, downbeat TV/Doc sequence or a relaxed advert.
Positive, earnest woody and organic. Harmonising guitar arpeggios, piano, cello, and percussion evoke a feeling of hope, well-being and a positive outcome. Suits positive stories, scenes of triumph over adversity, and heartfelt family moments. Suite with various mixes.
Instrumental classical/jazz track. Strings in conversation, playing melodic cycles. Warm, resonant piano enter, joined by marimba flourishes and a deep, soothing strings melody. Jazz piano chords, and the melody repeated in various registers. Marimba solo over sustained strings and a meandering improv section in the last minute. Earthy, romantic and enveloping, a calming jazz number, reminiscent of sprawling Ethiopian jazz rooted by a strong melody, as well as the gentle, rich Gymnopédie melody. Suitable for a very laid back advert or a pastoral Film/TV sequence set under a beaming winter sun.
