Not My Ask

Romantic jazz instrumental. Breathy saxophone melody, softly strummed guitar and gentle piano chords, joined by a selection of strings playing the undulating melodic idea in canon. Saxophone plays out before melting away to sultry breathiness again for the wistful mid-section. Strings wail, clarinet cuts through as the track builds in intensity before a quiet, reduced ending. Beautiful, sensual, intense and thoughtful, like the soulful East African jazz of Étiopiques. Would suit a highly charged, tender, romantic moment on TV/Film, or a reflective advert for something very special.

Manifest

Solo jazz piano track. Dramatic sparse piano chords, with quieter, sweeter interludes. A dissonant chord break with moments of consonance and hope, before a melodic slightly lounge-jazz section. Another chord break, returns to sparse, lovelorn chord clashes. Another moment of sweet reverie before the final despairing dramatic chords. Romantic, melancholy, thoughtful, would suit a reflective arthouse Film/TV scene, a lonely walk, conflicted, thinking of the other, or sitting at the bar, alone and dishevelled.

Girl from Sandymount beach

Delicate and touching, with a gentle piano performance and an acoustic guitar that make for a tender impression in the vein of melancholic comedies but also period dramas. An acoustic guitar introduces us to the theme in the first 20 seconds, creating the space in the middle part for a grand piano to complement the scene. Towards the end of the piece the latter is protagonist and uses both hands to fulfil the arrangement.

Nice idea

Tender and melancholic, featuring an arpeggiated piano wrapped by a strings arrangement that make use of modern day film scoring techniques to deliver a short theme, and develop it in just 1 minute and 20 seconds. Starts with piano, and after second 40 the strings take over. It will suit short form advertising and film trailers where the music is needed to help sustaining the emotional arch of your story.

End and Beginning

Reflective, dark and searching, with deep repetitive timpani and a sorrowful piano performance that play in the low range of frequencies to deliver a poignant feeling of inevitability. Something big is happening. It steadily grows in intensity as a compelling string ensemble builds and builds. Our protagonist is finally ready to accept the consequences of an inevitable, dramatic reality.

Sprinkles of Black Youth

Dreamy and hypnotic, a sapient episode of twisted synths, sustained and haunting bass drones, and heavily effected celesta that bring an unsettling and scary mood to the listener. It has a weird playful edge that evokes a sense of youth, though we are definitely not playing with positive characters here. Several applications, among those will suit teen thrillers, supernatural horrors with a delicate aftertaste.

Stuttering Individual

Hypnotic and emotional, a stuttering combination of piano and electronics that create an intense and haunting mood to the listener. Repetitive and and strangely delicate, it is like a robotic point of view of poignancy. In the second part a solid arpeggiated bass line gives strength to the piece until everything crumbles shortly after. A compelling mix of classical and modern music.

Variation 1

Emotional and meditative, with a delicate piano solo that will instil warmness and poignancy in your visuals. There is a marked human quality in the performance, delivering a great sense of honesty and sincereness. It will play well for advertising products where a deep and thoughtful human connection needs to be established.

Patterns

Poignant and mellow, a delicate piano solo performance that creates a great score for romances and melancholic sequences. It features an interesting syncopated yet well flowing rhythm that recurs all along the tune. A suspenseful moment arrives at 1:45 and then the theme resumes for a calm and warm ending.

Wavellite

Contemplative and hypnotic, with sounds remainders of earthy forests and a meditative detuned synth that create waves of mellow calmness. An ambient feeling overall, it has a visionary and mystical edge. Magic mushrooms for an android walking in the trees.
