The Woods 1: More sparse, similar soothing sustained piano, a cocoon of warmth and calm.
Tense, atmospheric electronica. Synth riff with added vocal samples and whooshing, fat synths underneath. Sparse, slightly tropical, subtle beats materialise, synths and vocals bubble up and cut through the murky atmosphere. Downbeat, moody, dark and slightly magical, reminiscent of a more 90s Arca, intriguing beats draw us in to another world, swampy and hazy, perfect for a mellow TV/Doc/Film scene or as sombre yet hopeful background music.

Multi-instrumental contemporary jazz/folk. Light-footed marimba intro into a marimba riff with counter melody. Violin and cello join with a brief melody, continue over the marimba. Polyrhythms emerge from multiple layerings and harmonies. Quiet marimba break before a burst of vigorous strings. Dynamic new section with sparse piano, strange rhythms and freely soloing marimba. Slow down and fade to finish. Playful, folky and a bit magical, secret goings on, covert, playful encounters and mysterious but jolly woodland fun. Like the soundtrack to a jaunty but slight dark Enid Blyton tale.
Emotional slow-paced string track. Melancholy string solo for 1 min, higher violin line joins, sparse, sombre piano chords punctuate the melody. Slowly shifting, the melody is shared, moments of light and bliss emerging through chordal changes.

Would suit a documentary or film scene loaded with anticipation, uncertainty and suspicion.
