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.

Aether

Slow-paced piano with electronics and orchestral strings. Fleeting electronic fragments, overtone-like snatches of sound, clusters of plaintive piano melody. Orchestral strings introduced, a warm swell, more defined piano melody with electronic accents. Mysterious, stark and and intensely emotional, perfect for onscreen melancholy, and tales of human warmth and compassion.

Obstinate

Dramatic orchestral track. A flighty melodic phrase on woodwind, mimicked by strings and punctuated by vigorous percussion, joined by countermelody on woodwind before fuller orchestral melody enters. Excited, suspenseful, tense and nervous. Reminiscent of the Animals of Farthing Wood theme, suitable for a dramatic, high stakes film/TV sequence or an advert for a disaster-averting product.
