Chiaroscuro

Ambient synth track. Sustained synth and brass chords, melting into each other, creating a rich, warm, soundscape. Slowly shifting chord movement, bright and hopeful, growing in intensity. Dreamlike, peaceful and sublime, perfect background music for a calming scene of intense beauty on Film/TV, or images of the natural world.

Harpalyke

Slow, thoughtful piano track. Slow-paced, piano chords, with a hint of Amélie-style European nostalgia. Pensive and emotional with a hint of hope. Would suit a commercial for a family-friendly service, saving for a rainy day or for a reflective, arthouse-style Film/TV sequence.

Notice It

Cinematic orchestral track. Slow, sparse piano intro. Wistful orchestral strings join with sustained notes before a urgent string and percussion melody kicks in. Strings join on top, followed by triumphant brass, searching and adventurous. Lighter woodwind adds a playful elements, over stomping percussion and strings. Tentative and introspective before a definite drive and determination kicks in. Perfect for ambitious, impassioned, hopeful fantasy film/TV sequences, going to battle to protect the kingdom and defeat the evil invaders.

Kite

Melancholy piano and orchestral string track. Piano leads an off-kilter waltz, joined by orchestral strings that build throughout, soaring by the finish, and gentle marimba murmurings. Slow, solemn and sensual with hints of light and hope breaking through. Perfect for a desolate TV/Doc/Film scene, imagine a kite stuck in the upper branches of a tree, disintegrating in harsh winter winds, or a sad silent movie. Also suitable as woozy, tragic, lonesome background music to an advert.

Night Falls OG

Clean electronic track with drones. Slow, sustained harsh electronic, sitar-like drones, high pitched and spiritual. The tune drops, bleepy, cute and warm, sounding ultra modern with a suggestion of African rhythms. Drones re-enter, causing an interesting clash of moods, bright and bubbly vs pensive and introspective. Beat break, beats return and drones intensify. Mysterious and other-wordly, new and ancient, sparkling electronics contract with harsher, earthier tones, at once like Mura Masa feat, Charli XCX and Indian classical music. Would suit a fresh advert or TV show, visuals both cutting edge and ethereal.

These Waters Remember Part 1

Acoustic guitar track with female vocals. Slow intro of plucked, Spanish-style guitar with atmospheric reverb. Grows more fast-paced. Ethereal female vocals introduced at end. Sultry, mysterious and slightly melancholy, would suit a shot panning an arid landscape, or a strange romance on TV/Film, anticipation, lust and confusion in the desert.

Soundscape of the Future

Slow, spacey electronic track. Atmospheric electronics with fleeting glimmering, glistening synths. Like floating in outer space, coming across various life forms with signature bleeping sounds. Ambient, enveloping, and slightly disturbing, post-apocalyptic film music for scenes of immersion, either in water, in an unfamiliar environment or in the dark recesses of the human mind.

Guitar Wanderings

Slow-paced acoustic guitar track with drones. Dramatic, sparse acoustic guitar intro, breaks into a melancholy, reflective melody, accompanied by a sitar-like string drone. Introspective, meditative and pensive, bringing to mind the desolate landscapes of Western films, as well as Indian classical music and Spanish guitar, a global wanderer to suit a tense or thoughtful Film/TV moment.

Bat Milk

Chilled jazzy reggae track. Slow piano skank and tip-toeing bass guitar intro with surf-style guitar effects and laid back drums. Brass plays a lyrical melody that sounds like a raised eyebrow, joined by subtle sustained keyboard chords. Saxophone takes a solo, accompanied by jazz drums and skanking guitar keeping the relaxed, mid-tempo beat. Back to melody on brass, before a keyboard solo like The Specials’ Ghost Town and a fade out. Thoughtful and searching, yet relaxed and easy-going, perfect for a Film/TV scene where the protagonist is on a solo journey of discovery in a new place or a strange, intriguing situation. Would also suit an advert for a new, exotic and surprisingly tasty food or beverage.

A Father’s Grip

Thoughtful acoustic guitar folk instrumental. Slow and pensive folky melodic acoustic guitar intro. A pause then a faster section, with finger-picking repetitive folk/blues guitar. A more meandering, explorative section follows into a more upbeat improv-style, rootsy country/folk section. Contemplative at first, then hopeful and positive, yet low-key. Bert Jansch with hints of boogie-woogie, a guitar journey to accompany reflective, traditional scenes on TV/Film/Adverts.
