Tense drum ‘n’ bass track. Drum ‘n’ Bass breaks over woozy, neon synths. Strange modulations and cold electronics effects create an unnerving and hypnotic atmosphere. Intense, direct and single-minded with a contrasting softness from the synths, would suit a serious documentary about youth or urban issues, or a reality TV montage.
Atmospheric solo piano. Chiming, resonant piano chords with hazy delay. Dreamlike, serene and reflective, perfect for a sombre TV drama or serious, cautionary documentary about climate change or some impending disaster.
Alt versions available with added atmosphere and fizzling static.
Atmospheric electronic track. Synth drones with metallic electronics, fleeting sound effects and glassy beats with snatches of retro 60s keyboard melodies on top. Ends with Broadcast-like crackly, pulsating synth drone. Psychedelic, chilled and immersive, slightly serious and introspective, would suit a mind-bending scene in a Film/Doc/TV show.
Macho guitar and synth track. Chiming, fast-paced piano chords with muted percussion underpin the intro with a brash electric guitar melody joining above. Bass guitar introduces a fuller section with solid drums and more guitar. Harpsichord-like synth break imitates the piano chords, all instruments rejoin. Determined, driven and serious, the perfect no-nonsense track for an investigative documentary or neutral commercial.
Naive hyperpop. Catchy synth melody over sweet synths and a serious beat build. Beat drops, wobbly synths, whooshing samples and warm, enveloping, pretty chords. Another build, squeaky synths and a beat break. Happy, sincere, cute and sparkly, like the bonkers kawaii of PC Music, or computer game music, perfect for Reality TV montages/interludes, or adverts for young and fun summer festivals, or rainbow computer game fantasy worlds.
Playful orchestral track. A jaunty woodwind motif to begin, joined by sparse glockenspiel setting a cheeky and playful tone. Languid strings join, adding an air of grandeur. Strings take prominence, woodwind takes an accompanying role. Then short bursts of strings interspersed with determined oboe. Stronger string section builds to a call and answer between gentle woodwind and serious strings, before calm finish. Pastoral, light-hearted, with serious undertones, like the Animals of Farthing Wood bounding among the trees only to come across a gun-toting farmer, before an ingenious escape. Perfect music to accompany intriguing documentary scenes about nature and animals, or reality TV, showing humans in their natural habitat.
Upbeat electronic instrumental. Pulsating beats, fast and fleeting arpeggiated synth and brash, fat synth melody line. Insistent, driving and determined, bold electronic sounds, perfect for high-octane sports coverage, reality TV or as dramatic, anticipatory music for a tension-building advert.
Anticipatory electronic track. Fade In. Moody beats, fat synths and a repetitive melodic synth motif emerge fully formed. An insistent 4/4 beat underpins 90s-style samples and electronic flourishes. Determined, serious, yet upbeat, would suit a half sophisticated, half cheesy advert for a functional product, think chrome and flashes of steel, shiny and indestructible. Would also suit Film/TV scenes of anticipation and action.
Intense acoustic guitar instrumental. Dark, pensive intro growing in speed and intricacy. Quick, repetitive strumming creates a drone effect. Hints of Spanish/Latin American guitar, Western movie soundtracks, as well as Middle-Eastern sounds. Suspenseful, tense and brooding, moving like a seductive dance, would suit onscreen tension on Film/TV or a sombre documentary about seedy goings-on and modern-day cowboys.
Atmospheric synth instrumental. Layers of echoing synth. Fat, warm, 80s reverb-laden sound. Sombre orchestral string effect, chiming piano and glacial beats gives a serious, driving feeling. Intriguing, mysterious and strange, Twin Peaks-style ambience crossed with Enya and the Crimewatch theme tune, would suit a dark TV drama or as tension-building background music to an eye-opening documentary.
