Heartbroken

Epic orchestral string track with piano and woodwind. Languid orchestral string intro, joined by pastoral woodwind. Woodwind motifs mimicked by the string parts. A dramatic stop before a delicate but excitable piano section with added plucked strings. Orchestral strings runs added, fast-moving and spritely above the piano. Extra piano joins, taking a melancholy tone, strings build to match the dramatic melody. Woodwind returns for the final wind down. Melancholy yet dramatic and lively, cinematic with lots of movement, would suit a long, powerful Film/TV scene of strong emotional resonance or an over-the-top advert.

Osier

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.

Salutations Plains Wanderer

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.

Evening Star

Pensive piano track with electronics. Fast-paced, wave-like piano with electronic swells. Undulating repeated piano underneath a simple piano melody and airy electronics build an absorbing fantastical world. Breathless, atmospheric and dynamic, with a hint of melancholy. Piano poetry for screen to accompany the excitement and possibility of heady romance.

Bea

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.

Bonds

Acoustic guitar, piano and percussion. Dynamic, jazzy percussion, strange drum rhythms and a disconnected piano melody. Unpredictable and off-kilter. Emotional orchestral strings mingle with playful percussion and jaunty acoustic guitar. String section, soaring, beautiful violins glide above the rattling drums and jittery guitar. Mysterious, enigmatic and pensive. A strange world that draws you in down the rabbit hole, would suit sophisticated adverts or curious TV/Film/Doc scenes.

Kite

Melancholy piano and orchestral string track. Piano leads an off-kilter waltz, joined by orchestral strings that build throughout, soaring by the finish, and gentle marimba murmurings. Slow, solemn and sensual with hints of light and hope breaking through. Perfect for a desolate TV/Doc/Film scene, imagine a kite stuck in the upper branches of a tree, disintegrating in harsh winter winds, or a sad silent movie. Also suitable as woozy, tragic, lonesome background music to an advert.

Simple Pretty Thing

Thoughtful piano and orchestral strings. Sparse piano chords mingle with the ebbing and flowing of sustained emotional string parts. Growing on intensity toward a powerfully emotional finish. Romantic, reflective and gentle, like the quiet bits of Sigur Rós tracks, sparsely cinematic with dramatic moments, the perfect soundtrack to a caring advert or an inquisitive or redemptive TV/Documentary scene.

Learning to Walk

Piano track with orchestral strings. Repetitive piano, broken harp chords and scratchy string overtones fades out. Returns with lyrical cello melody and more dynamic piano melody. Builds with fuller strings and many layers of activity. Builds further with choppy strings, fuller bass parts and soaring violin melodies over insistent piano. After this storm, the clouds part, revealing a softer, more gentle strings section, breaking into a major key, hints of sunshine. Final section is a decidedly sombre string part. Repetitive, urgent and dramatic, like contemporary Philip Glass piano minimalism with added cinematic string flourish. Perfect for tense factual TV/Docs or a thrilling advert for a stylish, highly covetable new product.

Slow Spectres

Orchestral thriller. Tense, sustained orchestral strings, with quirky orchestral percussion. Repeated suspenseful violin motif joins on top, followed by mysterious walking piano notes. Determined plucked strings and higher register violin take things up a notch. Rumbling, stomping percussion to a cacophonous, threatening section with more prominent piano and horn blasts. Dark, foreboding and full of anticipation, perfect for a commercial of epic proportions, a faux-epic pastiche, or dramatic TV/Doc scenes showcasing the brutal force of Mother Nature.
