Tense piano and string tracks with effects. Murky and atmospheric, repeated, tension-building piano melody over stark, melancholy strings and a wash of cool ambience. Tense, nerve-wracking and uneasy, perfect haunting soundscape for a crime documentary or a melancholy TV drama.
Slow-moving orchestral track with electric guitar. Soaring, held strings held over slowly shifting piano chords. Single notes on electric guitar, solid rock drums and emotional strings added, breaking the tension but adding melancholy drama. Powerful and frustrated yet rousing and dramatic, love-struck anticipation and angst, perfect for a bittersweet TV/Film/Doc scene or inspiring advert full of human struggles.
Gentle instrumental on piano and percussion. Melodic percussion intro rings out, like a lullaby played on gamelan and church bells. Melodic passage on harpsichord and guitar alternates with a gentle piano section. Synth strings swell, sounding like a choir. Comes to a quiet finish. Hopeful, tender and soothing, a reassuring, enveloping sound, perfect for a comforting advert for a trustworthy, caring product.
Ambient synth instrumental. New age synths glisten and sparkle, slowly shifting over time. Calm, bright and peaceful, a hopeful, quietly joyful, celestial voyage – think Carl Sagan – perfect as ambient background noise for an enlightening documentary.
Emotional slow-paced string track. Melancholy string solo for 1 min, higher violin line joins, sparse, sombre piano chords punctuate the melody. Slowly shifting, the melody is shared, moments of light and bliss emerging through chordal changes. Further string lines join and the piano rings out on the higher register, a walking accompaniment in reminiscent of stately Baroque style. Strings multiply and build, piano gains strength to a powerful emotional effect. Beautiful, lyrical and sad, a sense of deep yearning permeates the track, perfect film music, cutting through a beautiful imagery, lending an air of nostalgia, romance and longing.
Atmospheric build with piano and orchestral strings. Sustained strings build anticipation, joined by a repeated piano phrase ringing out hopefully. Slow build to include prominent string swells and bubbling, dynamic electronics. Hopeful, inspiring and positive, like a more chilled Chariots of Fire, epic but without the climax. Would suit a decisive TV/Film moment or a slow-moving, heart-warming advert.
Gentle piano and glockenspiel lullaby. Slow-paced, shifting broken piano chords accompanied by piano and glockenspiel softly playing a simple, childlike melody. Soothing, calming, loving and warm, would suit an advert for something that will safeguard your loved ones, allowing you to rest easy, or a sentimental TV show about cute kids or beloved pets.
‘Underscore’ version features gentle broken chords only, slightly 80s feel.
Soothing solo piano track. Introspective, warm piano chords, simple melodic piano motif. Calm, searching, slow-paced, a hint of sadness and regret, but with acceptance and hope. Perfect for the aftermath of an emotional goodbye, as we survey what is left.
Romantic piano and string track. Lush orchestral strings, a slow-paced piano melody, descending. The strings swell and overwhelm the piano. Becomes more dramatic and hopeful, literally ending on a high note. Melodramatic, wistful and nostalgic, like Bach’s ‘Air on the G String’ crossed with a less eerie Twin Peaks theme tune, would suit a heartfelt TV/Film moment or advert playing on saccharine retro melodrama.
Sparse piano solo. Fragmented piano phrases, plaintive harmonies emerge from the piano counterpoint. Slow and widely spaced snatches of melody. Contemplative, strange and questioning, a curious piano piece, would work well in contrast to a calamitous drama onscreen, or an equally reflective and thoughtful TV/Film/Doc scene.
