The 8th Day

Country rock jam. Slow strummed acoustic guitar chord intro with subtle snare drum. Full drums and fuzzy electric guitar kick in with a simple riff. Heavier chorus section with more of everything. Electric guitar solo shreds through the guitar later in the track. Brash and confident with a hint of plodding reflection. Perfect for a dramatic TV/Film scene or documentary following a slightly tortured character.

Overlapping Dreams

Gentle synth and guitar track. Bubbling arpeggiated synth grows beneath a effects-laden, melodic electric guitar line. Bright, glassy synth chordal interlude before snare drum effects are added creating a polyrhythmic soundscape. Regular drums and colourful, broad synth chords join, adding depth. Sweet, positive and hopeful, a softer Beach House, perfect for immersive, colourful adverts, futuristic but cute.

A Big Score

Experimental, tropical instrumental with brass and percussion. Wavy brass and woodwind and sparse frenetic double bass, oud-like guitar with shakers, drums and orchestral percussion begin a 2-part musical journey in Casablanca, or some other city of intigue and passion. Marching band snare gives way to tropicalia on shakers, bass, acoustic guitar and wah wah effects. All the colour and life of a tropical jungle dances sweatily together with brass holding the Latin-style melody. Retro, intriguing yet sexy and ambient, suited to an ambitious Film/Doc or TV show set in sensual, sunny climes or an atmospheric summery advert for a passion-inducing indulgence.

Sneak Peek (Suite)

Light electronic track. Tranquil atmospheric electronics, bleepy sounds, vocal samples and warm synth mix with a mellow throbbing beat and upbeat percussion. Delicate electronic break, gentle swooshes and muted beats. Drums kick in, build anticipation over the gentle bed track. A snare drum section followed by an understated yet triumphant chordal synth build. Joyous, anticipatory and considered, elation but in a classy way, sounds like a more upbeat Beach House or Au Revoir Simone, low key but playful, perfect as background music for a positive, thought-provoking charity video, or for slightly suspenseful reality TV montages.

A Beautiful Day

Cheesy summer synths. Shimmering sustained synths, delicate snare beats and whooshing synth effects introduce a low key synth melody. A quieter passage of sparkling arpeggiated synths, bouncy keys and washed out beats creates a breezy atmosphere before the melody returns more energetic and full of conviction. Sexy, seductive and summery, sun, sea and synths, perfect Balearic muzak for adverts, or comedic TV montages – like Alan Partridge slow-motion Baywatch jogging into the sunset.

Instant 1

Synth pop track. Frantic bleepy synth intro, snare drums shuffle. Keyboards play sparse riff, over alternating marimba-like synth notes. Another layer of piano creates overlapping rhythms, Drums break with single piano notes, drums become more complex. Spanish acoustic guitar plays solo over drums, frenetic, choppy orchestral strings take their turn before the finish. Sombre and mysterious, sophisticated pop for flashy corporate videos, ad campaigns or background music for intriguing documentaries.
