Improvisation on Turkish cumbus, stringed, oud-like instrument. Free-form improviation with runs, ornamentation, repetition and silent pauses, growing slightly faster and more intricate towards the end. Mysterious, intimate and sparse, Turkish and Middle Eastern sounds perfect for a documentary about the region or to accompany a vast, deserted landscape onscreen.
Bouncy electronic track. Arpeggiated laser synths shoot into space, bouncy synth chords soften the atmosphere, joined by a laid back, funky synth melody and 80s beats. A dreamy break then retro synth with 80s computer game tendencies takes over. Another calm interlude before YMO-style electric guitar soloing goes rogue. Upbeat, triumphant and audacious, a self-assured synth odyssey to match an epic visual delight.
Turkish saz instrumental. Improvisatory solo on Turkish saz, resembling the Arabic oud, as well as lute or guitar. Improvisations end on repeated refrains. Melancholy and meditative, bringing to mind desert plains and traditional ways of life, imagine a Spaghetti Western set in Turkey. Perfect folk music for an Arabic or Turkish documentary.
Improvisatory oud track. Meandering oud solo, measured and spacious, with pauses full of resonance and contemplation. Expressive, contemplative and meditative, perfect music to accompany a middle Eastern landscape on screen, vast, beautiful and unpredictable.
Solo cello with electronics. Subtle sustained atmospheric synth underpins a strong and melancholy cello solo. Background synth bubbles up slightly as the track closes. Emotional, reflective and resolute, perfect accompaniment to a determined TV character or a pensive, revelatory film scene.
Romantic jazz track with saxophone. Soaring, emotional saxophone soloing over a gentle bed of double bass, drums and softly-played piano chords. Electric guitar takes a laid back solo, accompanied by double bass and shuffling drums. Sax returns, over increasingly emotive piano 7th chords. Introspective, wistful and nostalgic, a retro, heartbroken jazz club standard, perfect for a TV/Film/Doc scene full of romantic longing.
Bed track features piano chords, double bass and percussion only.
Pastoral folk on solo acoustic guitar. Quiet, thoughtful chordal motifs and finger-picking guitar. Moving from minor to major like the sun breaking through the clouds. Gentle, introspective and tentative, yet hopeful, perfect for a spare, downbeat TV/Doc sequence or a relaxed advert.
Country-jazz instrumental. Dynamic walking double bass, quickly strummed acoustic guitar, classic jazz drums, frenetic saxophone soloing. Horn is introduced, duelling brass solos. Fun, positive and warm, ramshackle jazz straight out of a 1920s speakeasy, would suit a retro Film/TV scene, a lush jazz-age garden party, or an advert for a laid-back but jazzy product.
Bed version features No Brass.
Jolly folk track on acoustic guitar. Finger-picking guitar in a blues/country style, cheerful, gently building in emotion. Mid-tempo, slowing to a more expressive finish. Perfect for a nature documentary about woodland animals or the spritely adventures of creatures of the great outdoors.
Simple piano track. Piano arpeggios beneath an emotional piano melody. Tender, bittersweet and melancholy, a yearning ode to love lost and found, perfect for Amélie-style romantic adverts or pensive TV scenes.
