Moody lyre instrumental. Sparse improvisatory melody, sounding like a cross between harp and acoustic guitar. Beguiling, melancholy and ancient, a mysterious, questioning, atmospheric soundtrack to strange, anticipatory Film/TV scenes or documentaries about ancient civilisations.
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.
Melodic electronics and percussion. Subtle, gentle percussion and breathy woodwind arpeggios undulate over slowly shifting synth chords. Bleepy synth and celestial sound effects whoosh across the spacey soundscape. Melodic, mystical and mysterious, perfect background music for a questioning advert or curious documentary, looking to the stars.
Contemplative cello track. Two thoughtful cello parts in a slow, melancholy counterpoint. Reflective, emotional and questioning, perfect desolate mood music for a bleak TV drama, documentary or film.
Vocal version available.
Atmospheric 80s-style synthscape. Broken, questioning synth chords, like something out of Twin Peaks, seeming calm but building tension with shifting chords. Later added electric guitar, electronic sound effects and sparkling synths lines. Mysterious, unsettling and yet peaceful at times, lulling you in to a false sense of security. Suitable for melodramatic Film/TV moments, or a cheesy advert parodying this.
Sparse piano solo. Fragmented piano phrases, plaintive harmonies emerge from the piano counterpoint. Slow and widely spaced snatches of melody. Contemplative, strange and questioning, a curious piano piece, would work well in contrast to a calamitous drama onscreen, or an equally reflective and thoughtful TV/Film/Doc scene.
Solo jazz piano. Thoughtful, slow-paced jazz piano chords, old-fashioned jazz meandering, feeling semi-improvised with passages resolving on sweet chords or questioning chord clusters. Melancholy, pensive and full of longing, would suit a classic film scene, a là Casablanca, lonely hearts gaze into their whisky sodas…nobody understands like the piano player.
Emotional piano-led track. Sparse piano intro, joined by melancholy orchestral strings. String swell, subtle drums and a rhythmic piano motif, growing in confidence and strength. Slowly building, dialogue between strings and piano. Effects-laden piano gives a cold electronic edge. Reflective, yearning and questioning, would suit a TV/Doc sequence of high emotional intensity or a pensive moment on film.
