Long Dream of August

Emotional piano and orchestral string track. Broken piano arpeggios accompanied by deep, lyrical strings. Builds passionately to reach the higher register of the piano and the lowest cello notes. Slow-paced, reflective and moving, the melodic simplicity of Satie, coupled with a cool, contemporary vastness, like Sigur Ros. Perfect romantic music for a heartbreaking onscreen moment or for a reflective walk away…

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.

Sparrow

Cute folky acoustic guitar track. Simple acoustic guitar melody begins, joined by jaunty double bass.
