Awhrae

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.

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, a reflective walk away, or a

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.

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.

The Art of Dreaming

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.

Sleepy Lullaby

Gentle piano and glockenspiel lullaby. Slow-paced, shifting broken piano chords accompanied by piano and glockenspiel softly playing a simple, childlike melody.

A Poor Crisis

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.

Between Time, Over A Secret Root

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.
