Royal Oak

Atmospheric slide and acoustic guitar track. Slow beginning with slide guitar joined by fast broken chords on acoustic guitar building tension with guitar sound affects. A melodic motif on acoustic guitar builds up, joined by slide for the ending. Tense, sombre and dramatic, anticipation builds throughout, like the lead-up to a duel in a Western movie. Perfect for a documentary or Film/TV sequence. You can almost hear the crunch of gravel underfoot and the glint of desert sun on spurs.

Going to Bill’s

Intense acoustic guitar instrumental. Dark, pensive intro growing in speed and intricacy. Quick, repetitive strumming creates a drone effect. Hints of Spanish/Latin American guitar, Western movie soundtracks, as well as Middle-Eastern sounds. Suspenseful, tense and brooding, moving like a seductive dance, would suit onscreen tension on Film/TV or a sombre documentary about seedy goings-on and modern-day cowboys.

Listen to the Dialogue While I Do My Thing

Atmospheric synth instrumental. Layers of echoing synth. Fat, warm, 80s reverb-laden sound. Sombre orchestral string effect, chiming piano and glacial beats gives a serious, driving feeling. Intriguing, mysterious and strange, Twin Peaks-style ambience crossed with Enya and the Crimewatch theme tune, would suit a dark TV drama or as tension-building background music to an eye-opening documentary.

Mea Culpa

Uplifting piano-led build. Strange delicate guitar, wispy sustained strings, sombre piano chords, floating overtones, before a dramatic entry by spirited, melodic piano, determined drums and feel-good orchestral strings. Curious, pensive and meandering before a powerful, driven, excited outburst. Suitable for a dramatic change in tone on TV/Adverts. This week on Celebrity Tummy Tuck, one of the group is packing their bags and on their way home…or are they?? NO! Everyone gets to stay, and go on a yacht!!!

Kuzka’s Mother (Suite)

Electronic orchestral string fusion. Orchestral string intro with single delay-effect piano notes building anticipation. Breaks into 90s trip hop drums with dramatic orchestral strings, piano chords and a dirty synth line. Synth break, back to the string motif. Final section is without strings, beat-driven breakdown. Glamorous, dangerous and sexy, a 90s throwback with a modern edge, where Massive Attack meets Clean Bandit, would suit a slick car advert or could bring some glamour to a gritty British TV show or film about modern youth.

Version available without lead strings.

1 min and 30 sec ad length version available.

String stem track available.

Drakish

Sombre acoustic guitar and piano track. Percussion, moody repetitive acoustic guitar and piano, dark sustained strings, tense choppy strings. The mood lightens, expanded acoustic guitar and pretty piano. Dark, sombre, quiet, worried a relaxed finish, would suit a tense TV/Film moment of uncertainty and fear before a slight hint of resolution.

Escalate

Sombre, driving string track. Intro of see-sawing sustained strings, sprinkles of plucked acoustic guitar. Intense bass pizzicato enters, builds and drives track. Faster, more urgent section. Repetitive, choppy string motif, powerful string melody enters, builds further with extra string lines and finger-picking acoustic guitar detail. Serious, threatening, brooding and dark, would suit an escalating situation on film, a move from slight threat to real danger.

Stem tracks available.

Requiem for L Lawson

Live instrumental acoustic guitar saga. Raw blues/folk acoustic guitar melody, repetitive melodic motifs. Lyrical mid-section to a more tense, frantic part, alternating between drama and calm moments. End section is like something out of a Western film, tense and sparse, with dramatic slide guitar, to a hopeful finger-picking final section. Sombre, dramatic and epic with moments of light, the nature of the live recording adding interesting imperfections. Different sections would suit various Film/TV/Documentary moments, would suit an American road trip or a nature documentary explore the American Wild West.

Positive No Matter What

Repetitive arpeggio on the left hand with a wistful, romantic yet melancholy melody above. European, emotive and serious, but with a hint of sunshine and hope, suitable for a rainy TV/Film sequence or a cautionary advert.

Piano and Cello

Sombre piano and cello track with subtle sound effects. Crackling record player static and cello sound effects underlie minor piano arpeggios and sustained, emotive cello. Thoughtful, melancholy and yearning, imagine a desolate TV/Film sequence set on a grey, rainy street in a European city in the aftermath of a devastating event.
