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.
Dark trap. Bell-like keyboard motif builds mystery and tension. Rattling, unsettling chords reiterate the creepy melody before a syncopated Latin-style beat and hi-hat trap beat grounds the track. Quiet moments with the eerie distant sounds of thunder and rain like a bad omen. Uneasy and tense with a sense of foreboding, like a trap Twin Peaks soundtrack, perfect for dark TV show where danger is around every corner.
Peruvian instrumental with charango and cajón. Stringed, guitar-like charango plays a melancholy melodic hook, while a second charango provides intricate accompaniment. Gentle percussion from cajón gives a subtle rhythmic flavour while supporting the melody. Emotional, passionate yet quiet and restrained, reminiscent of Manu Chao, full of romantic anticipation to suit a sizzling onscreen lovers’ dance or for a travel documentary or advert with a Latin influence.
Meditative Arabic instrumental for autoharp. Repeated musical ideas are explored and improvised upon, meandering phrases and pauses allow the resonance of the instrument to ring out. Reflective, quiet and thoughtful, perfect for Arab documentaries or contemplative Film/TV.
Uplifting pop/rock track. Quiet drum and guitar intro building to including expressive vocal ‘Aahs’ and ‘Ohs’ with heavier drums. Mid section is more experimental, reverb-laden vocal samples reminiscent of FKA Twigs’s ‘Water Me’. Overall more like Coldplay, expansive, emotional and open. Would suit a TV/Doc scene of emotional closure, or a heartwarming advert.
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.
Improvisation on loutar, an oud-like stringed instrument. Sparse improvised phrases growing to more melodic parts. Hypnotic, melancholy and raw, like the soundtrack to a western movie at first before taking on a North African feel when the melodic sections kick in. Perfect documentary soundtrack.
Quietly epic cinematic orchestral string build with electric guitar and piano. Sustained orchestral strings over hand drum percussion. Warm synth notes and tinkling piano melody bring lightness and joyful anticipation. Angelic choral vocal samples break in before a change to a harder synth section. The sunshine breaks through the clouds with electric guitar cutting through the wash of strings and choral vocals. Piano rejoins with a simple, hopeful melodic pattern. Powerful and moving, yet gentle and thoughtful, Elbow-like emotional build to suit an inspiring advert or a triumphant onscreen finale.
Cinematic orchestral string track with piano. Soaring, sustained celestial strings shift notes slowly over a serene bubble of gentle piano arpeggios. Calm, peaceful and inspiring, quietly epic and filmic, perfect music for a film set in space, the other-worldly moments of wonder. Also suitable for comforting adverts and awe-inspiring documentaries.
Uplifting orchestral string track. A hopeful swell of orchestral strings grows under a lush, warm string melody. A quiet, soothing electronic section before a percussive build to a euphoric string chorus with added layers of warmth and hope. Emotional, thoughtful and reassuring, a heartwarming track to suit a soothing and inspirational family advert, heightened TV Drama/Documentary scene.
