All Be Alright (Suite)

Atmospheric hang drum track. Repeated melodic phrase on handpan, like heavy water droplets. Synth drones and hangdrum overtones hang still and suspended in the atmosphere. Woodwind-like sustained notes and percussive hits add colour. Calm, thoughtful and introspective. Still and reflective with a hint of mystery, perfect for nature docs or mysterious, other-worldly film scenes.

Geeks Groove

Mysterious electronic synth track. Repetitive synth intro, bouncy and arpeggiated, with spooky synth whooshes. New section of spookier synth riff, twinkling percussive bells and strings straight out of an old James Bond film, building anticipation. Sustained synth section with shuffling percussion becomes a dynamic, rhythmic synth section. Like Santigold but weird and wonky, topsy-turvy. Plodding yet classy, a real mystery. Intriguing and beguiling, would suit a provocative advert, a flashy product, sexy and stylish but a hint of danger.

Images d’une Pensée

Lyrical solo piano track. Gentle repeated piano motif, quick and insistent. Bass chords added, melody expands and counter melody is added, higher register, volume and greater depth. Slips to a quiet lull before a dramatic melodic chordal crescendo. Romantic, bright and hopeful, uplifting piano music with a French feel for inspiring adverts or euphoric TV moments.

Alt version is at a slower pace.

For There is Much to Dare

Atmospheric piano instrumental with subtle strings and electronics. Sustained, dramatic piano notes, another layer of delicate piano bubbles underneath. A melody with delay and electronic effects emerges from the murky ambience created by string-like scratchy drones and muted layers of repetitive piano. Strings grow more harsh, piano builds, ending on a gentle hocketing motif on high-register piano, like gentle chiming bells. Sombre, emotional and quietly, epic, a cinematic soundscape with Philip Glass-like rhythmic piano, perfect to accompany images of nature or a tragic human drama.

These Waters Remember Part 4

Tense acoustic guitar track. Acoustic guitar riff, repeated, building anticipation. Electric guitar line joins, building the texture. Electric guitar effects added, delay creates a chiming effect. Guitar layers added, creating a cacophonous, reverberating atmosphere. Wordless female vocals join, like a flamenco song or Portugese fado. Earthy, meditative and tense. Would suit a dramatic TV/Film moment, a female wailing, like Mother Nature herself crying out.

Healing

Yearning piano and string track. Soft repeated piano notes to introduce the delicate piano melody. Hints of electronic effects. Expands into a beautiful piano melodic motif. Another layer of piano harmonises in a higher register. Reduces to tinkling notes. Simple block chords enter above, followed by the melody. Builds with added strings. Thoughtful, introspective, then dramatic and romantic, would suit a heartbreaking TV scene, our protagonists driven apart by circumstances outside of their control. They still cling to hope. Time heals.

Morning Glow

Piano with string accompaniment. Repetitive piano motif intro, joined by lyrical string section, playing simple, overlapping sustained harmonies and a flutter of electronics. Opens out and warms up with added piano and fuller string parts. Thoughtful and gentle with a hint of romance, would suit scenes of the natural world on a TV/Doc. Flowers unfurling their petals, leaves going brown and falling to the ground, the natural cycles and rhythms of life.

Break Away

Melancholy solo piano. Broken chord motif, introduces a melody of insistent, yet delicate, single repeated notes. Melody grows more lyrical with arpeggiated chord inversions, before a melancholy slower melodic section. Another build of passionate broken chords moving between minor and major tonalities. Introspective, quiet and mournful with a hint of hopeful optimism. The sun peeping out from behind dark clouds, suitable for an emotionally charged, reflective or romantic TV scene, or an advert for a service offering hope in times of darkness.

Embrace the Silence

Melancholy piano waltz. Minor key piano progression to begin, looped under repeated single piano note motif. Higher register introduced and single notes become chords, building texture and anticipation. A piano melody emerges, soft and lyrical, growing higher and more powerful. Introspective and emotional, the sound of heartbreak and longing. Perfect for tense, emotional television and documentaries. A pleading lover, a harsh rebuke…left alone in silence.

Reflection

Solo piano track. Slow-paced piano motif, repeated, joined by ghostly effects-laden single piano notes, building anticipation. Further piano layers added and subtle sustained strings and a soft pulsating beat. Atmospheric, suspenseful and pensive. The clue is in the title, perfect for an onscreen moment of reflection, introspection, a decision in the making, moving slowly but surely toward new possibilities, leaving the past behind.
