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.
Orchestral string-led instrumental with harp. Melodic harp solo, bright and hopeful, joined by orchestral strings playing lush, sustained notes and rich marimba. Harp takes on a jaunty rhythm under the sturdy strings. A marimba break, before a bubbling harp and percussion duel takes place under languid violin. Warm marimba like giant water droplets breaks out into an excited rhythm. A marimba break once more, before a return to the lazy string melody. Woozy, relaxed and hypnotic, like a Joanna Newsom instrumental evoking the natural world, would suit nature documentaries or thoughtful Film/TV scenes.
Contemporary classical multi-instrumental track. Languid strings and soft piano, a gentle swaying melody. Strings trills. Chordal piano with hints of Japanese influence. New section, rhythmic, bouncy marimba and swooping, lush, woozy strings and contemplative piano. Relaxed, thoughtful and peaceful, like Satie x Studio Ghibli, a beautiful, colourful and playful set of contrasts to suit a romantic or devastatingly beautiful TV/Film scene.
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.
Electronic synth track. Pulsating synth intro joined by bell-like synth notes playing a cute, naive melody. Fat synth joins, Kraftwerk-like beats and blobby synths in counterpoint over the steady pulse. German male vocals join later, robotic and rhythmic, followed by a modular synth-like analog section. Fun, silly, retro and triumphant. At once cutesy and motorik, a contrast between hard and soft, perfect for a shiny advert or a fun, nostalgic TV/Film scene.
Brash electronic metal instrumental. Harsh effects-laden guitar intro, drums enters with a gritty bass line. Bubbling bass, drums and choppy guitar section. Dark, heavy effected guitar returns with moody drums and bass. Bullet-like drums and laser guitar of the intro returns. Relentless rhythmic section like a round of gunfire before a drum outro. Dark, visceral, threatening and dirty. Like an electronic Pantera, would suit a hard-as-nails, moody, bruising TV scene or advert for a damaging, no-nonsense product that would wipe the floor with the competition.
Instrumental soulful jazz. Theremin effect over woozy brass intro with subtle keyboard chords. Drums and bass guitar enter, brass moves to a more melodic motif. Electric guitar flourishes then electric guitar and vibraphone melody. Change of pace to a more percussive gallop rhythm with horns. Back to bass, floating theremin and lazy brass and a dreamy guitar and brass melody, like bobbing on the ocean. Upbeat, driving rhythmic section on keys, drums and guitar, punchy brass and soulful saxophone build before slowing to a finish. Relaxed, lush, warm and hopeful, would suit a retro Film/TV scene, growing in excitement, tension building, or a romantic moment on screen where tenderness swings to all out love.
Solo Piano version available.
Mysterious multi-instrumental. Atmospheric feedback intro followed by oom-pah-pah waltz rhythm and childish marimba melody. Orchestral strings and accordion join with a Gallic-inspired melody, reminiscent of Amélie. The melancholy gives way to excitable, erratic rhythms on all instruments, before a dynamic final section with passionate violin and jumpy marimba. Magical, melancholy and manic, perfect music to accompany a rainy midnight walk through the streets of Paris, only to end up in a sleazy speakeasy at the centre of an absinthe-sodden freakshow.
A moody electronic dance track. 4/4 beats and warm synth chords builds in volume and intensity. Laser beam synths then a bassy break, back to the rhythm, a moody variation on the original. Double time beats build up adding a sense of urgency. Warm and rich with hints of darkness, this intense, hypnotic track looks toward the future, suiting adverts for cutting edge products or intense, emotional TV/film action sequences suggesting irreversible change.
Pulsating electronic thriller. Electronic horn-like sustained blasts, clanging sound FX, harsh drum machine. Ascending orchestral strings signal intriguing danger. A thoughtful, desolate electric guitar solo before a return to the relentless electronic sirens. Strings build again and electric guitar returns to finish. Automatic, inhuman, threatening and brash, the sound of a prison watchtower and the rhythmic plodding of prisoners boots, would suit a dramatic thriller on TV or Film.
