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.

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.

Kouga

Cinematic track with Japanese elements. Sustained synth strings and a plucked Japanese-style melody on a hammer-dulcimer. Effects-laden, quacking synth break before returning to the regal, traditional-style melodic idea over anticipatory percussion. Reserved, expectant, hopeful and adventurous, perfect for a game soundtrack or for a fantasy-movie sequence featuring a noble, brave character setting off on an important, magical quest.

The Sky’s Limits

High tension electronic track. Insistent synths attack, alternating between a rough fuzz and a clear pulsating synth sound. More layers added as the tension builds with panning beats escalating the tension. A piano outro gives some relief. We’re out of danger…for now. Intense, nerve-wracking, dark, urban, the soundtrack to a Jason Bourne-style race against time, an urban thriller, suitable for chase sequences on TV/Film or adverts parodying this genre.

Blossom

Delicate, bubbling electronic/acoustic track. Marimba, acoustic guitar, flutes, piano and synth flit across the surface or bubble up from below. Melodic synth break halfway through before a dreamy flute section. Eclectic, atmospheric and mysterious. A versatile track, sounds like Air doing the American Beauty soundtrack or like Lost In Translation crossed with a American detective series.

Comedy

Slapstick orchestral romp with humorous sound effects. Oom-pah rhythm underpins snatches of playful woodwind melody. This jaunty rollercoaster careers through snatches of percussion, brass and strings. Happy, quirky, ramshackle but slick, the perfect soundtrack to a slapstick pastiche of old movies or cartoons, in an advert or TV/Film setting.

Opening

Orchestral soundscape. High register sustained strings, rhythmic piano motifs and bass drones create a lush, mysterious soundscape. Jerky, stop-start moments and dark harmonies create slight unease until the chords resolve again. Reflective, heartfelt and troubled, quietly powerful soundtrack music to suit a desolate landscape or a thought-provoking visual.

American Glory

Sparse all-American Western track. Echoing electric guitar and rattlesnake percussion. A desolate desert soundscape, tumbleweed and a blazing sun. Mysterious, pensive and reflective, perfect Ennio Morricone-style soundtrack music for sombre western TV spoofs and adverts or documentaries reporting on another type of cowboy.
