Ambient Electronic track. Subtle electronics, delicate bubbly beats, synth vocal samples, orchestral strings and warm reverb, strings build with percussive electronics, back to quiet reverb section. Tranquil, romantic, uplifting, suitable for hopeful adverts or film/TV sequences, the sound of a future world where robots turn out to be friendly and caring.
Acoustic folk/country instrumental. Bluegrass acoustic guitars, jaunty fiddles, rollicking drums and hand claps, jangly mandolins and surly double bass. Upbeat, energetic and earnest, a jangly folk number to suit adverts or TV/Film/Doc scenes trying to keep it country.
Playful woodwind track. Busy orchestral strings, lyrical woodwind and jaunty, tinkling piano. Pastoral, fun and light-hearted, evoking the British countryside, would suit a cheerful advert or TV/Film scene about the beauty and wonder of the natural world.
Solo Piano waltz. Swooning, swaying piano motifs, floating chord progressions and buoyant piano lines and a swell of solo piano over a waltzing rhythm. Earnest, emotional, searching, tender and, finally, determined. A journey across the sea surface and into the depths, would suit a TV/Film scene with heavy emotional impact or more intimate, soul-searching scenarios.
Spacey synth track. Arpeggiated robotic synth, blobby beats, steady drums, stellar synth sound effects. Futuristic, celestial and expansive, perfect Kraftwerk-style retro soundtrack to a fun documentary or a playful advert. The sound of the future, as imagined in the ’70s.
Catchy synth based electronic track. Punchy, crunchy beats, plucky guitar, melodic synth and bouncy bass. Determined, driven yet fun and summery, would suit an advert for an urban event or product or as background music for a youthful, upbeat documentary or film.
Electronic synth track with female vocal samples. Looped sample of a nonchalant female vocal, repeated percussive synth notes lay down the syncopated beat, subtle hi-hat, before a drop to a downbeat chunky synth section. Breaks into more expressive female vocal and upbeat wonky synth part before the original sample returns. Relaxed, summery, cool and romantic, would suit a visual featuring emotional milennials lying around, on their phones, waiting for those magic letters to appear…ily
Summery instrumental brass and keys track. Percussive intro, like a trap beat, joined by shimmering keys and jazz chords. Woozy effects with warm bass and smooth brass. Punchy brass section, off-kilter keys and percussion and bass solo. Blissed-out, warm, summery, upbeat but relaxed, would suit a retro Film/TV scene surveying a pool party or the hazy concrete streets of a neighbourhood block party.
Wistful solo jazz piano. A sustained note intro like raindrops followed by jazz chords, piano trills and a full melody. Pastoral, breathless and new, calling to mind the natural landscape, would suit a thoughtful film/doc/TV scene passing over a lush landscape refreshed and awake after a storm or a long winter.
Multi-instrumental version with warm strings, mellow saxophone and shuffling percussion joined by tinkling piano and a freak folk chorus of faraway voices, calling to mind Wickerman-style pagan England.
Solo jazz piano. Early jazz of the American South meets Tin Pan Alley with some Nuyorican soul, an opening chordal melody elaborated on through dynamic piano solos. Expansive, joyous, dizzy with the possibilities of the big city, would suit a film/doc/TV scene evoking a vibrant multicultural history.
