Impressions of a Choice

Lush orchestral track. Simple, questioning piano introduction leads to sweeping, pastoral strings before a full orchestral mid-section with developed piano melodies and playful woodwind and brass blasts. Hopeful, romantic and soaringly positive, 1980s soap opera meets the Animals of Farthing Wood, romance with a dash of danger.

Heartfelt, gentle and melancholy, perfect tender soundtrack to a moving Film/TV scene.

Noel di Gautier

Pastoral flute septet. Various flute lines dance in counterpoint with an enchanting melody and hints of English folk. Regal, jaunty with a darkness beneath. Prim and proper interweaving flutes, perfect bewitching fantasy film music, conjuring up visions of the scary, dark forest scene from a classic Disney film, or the playful trouble-making of a Robin Hood figure.

In Harmony

Melancholy piano and electronic drone track. Pulsating electronics, laser synth sounds, fleeting sound FX and sparse piano chords. Piano grows and fleeting electronics steady and form an ambient drone. Sparse beats join. Snare drum and emotional piano chords come and go over a wave of atmospheric drones, building texture with an electric guitar drone. Unpredictable, downbeat and unstable, subtle emotional background music for a dark documentary or TV show.

It’s Just What I Think

Nostalgic soundtrack to kids playtime. Naive intro on warm, retro keys. Joined by sound effects, tinkling cans and crunching paper. Vocal ‘Ooohs’ enter with uplifting drums, interrupted by spoken word samples. A steady drum beat, keys and percussive tin can groove settles in, sounding like a microscopic recording of ants in work in the backyard. A new synth-led section brings fantasy, twinkling lights and gurgling sound effects, before a return to the melody with added percussive effects. Innocent, hopeful and nostalgic, suitable for a heartwarming advert looking at families, kids and the joys of childhood.
