Ticking Time

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.

The Militant Upcycle

Bloopy, psychedelic electronic track. Gentle, reverb-laden synth patterns, repeated, morphing into a noisier sound, growing more intense. A wash of fuzzy, atmospheric noise drowns out the synth melodies. Hints of My Bloody Valentine, Stereolab, Broadcast and Air, sepia-tinted electronics mingle with harsh noise in a satisfying contrast. Warm, gentle, searching and plodding to begin with, more intense, powerful and expansive as the track progresses. Perfect atmospheric film or documentary music, retro-futuristic and edgy, reminiscent of the Lost in Translation soundtrack.

Into the Light

Pensive orchestral strings and piano track. Melancholy repeated piano theme with intermittent string swells. Builds with effects-laden electric guitar adding a wash of brooding hope. Atmospheric, dramatic and edgy, perfect for a cutting edge TV drama closing scene, a heart-rending finale, an epic advert for a sleek and revolutionary automobile or a charity advert offering hope in dark times.

Wild Nature

Uplifting guitar track. Guitar intro builds anticipation with repetitive, effects-laden guitar riffs. Strummed acoustic guitar chords and gentle percussion create an insistent bed, laid back electric guitar rings out on top. Hopeful, peaceful and quietly positive, guitar parts like U2’s more gently euphoric build-ups. Perfect for emotional TV drama or film scenes, when passionate feelings can no longer be denied.

Fly Paper

Experimental pop with vocals. Breathy, reverb-laden vocals over Dirty Projectors-style noodling electric guitar, unpredictable rhythms and rattling percussion. Sparse, washed out electric guitar chords replace vocals over jerky percussion. Repeats. Thoughtful, dreamy and romantic, perfect for a reflective indie film scene or nostalgic TV drama outro.

Overlapping Dreams

Gentle synth and guitar track. Bubbling arpeggiated synth grows beneath a effects-laden, melodic electric guitar line. Bright, glassy synth chordal interlude before snare drum effects are added creating a polyrhythmic soundscape. Regular drums and colourful, broad synth chords join, adding depth. Sweet, positive and hopeful, a softer Beach House, perfect for immersive, colourful adverts, futuristic but cute.

Come Through

Downbeat electronic RnB track. Warm piano chord progression, muted, syncopated beats, vocal samples and dreamy reverb build a sultry, expectant atmosphere. Trap beats and breathy Enya-like female vocals added. Warm, fat, nostalgic synths join with electric guitar flourishes cutting through the haze. Cool, clear synth like water droplets takes on the chord progression before a full ending. Romantic, nostalgic and hopeful, like if the Drive soundtrack was a bit more RnB. A subtly determined soundscape, perfect for pensive and decisive TV/Film/Doc moments, ultimately leaving the past behind.

Jerusalem

Spacey synth soundscape. Mellow synth with heavy delay and reverb effects, church-like awe-struck ambience. Waves of warm, ambient synth undulate then trail off. Calm, soothing and reverent, suitable for a celestial Film/TV/Doc montage, a dream sequence, or reflective journey.

The Woods (Suite)

The Woods 2: Beautiful solo piano track. Mellow sustained piano chord progression with reverb-like pedal effect. Peaceful, reflective and romantic, reminiscent of Gymnopédie, suitable for lush, soothing adverts for beautiful things in luxury surroundings.

The Woods 1: More sparse, similar soothing sustained piano, a cocoon of warmth and calm.

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.
