Sparse piano chords, emotional, sustained strings, moves to repeated piano phrases and single strings line. A resigned conclusion. Pensive, desolate and heartfelt, suitable for the downbeat aftermath of a seismic event on TV/Film, or a warning advert.
Soothing solo piano track. Introspective, warm piano chords, simple melodic piano motif. Calm, searching, slow-paced, a hint of sadness and regret, but with acceptance and hope. Perfect for the aftermath of an emotional goodbye, as we survey what is left.
Slow plodding bass and piano track. Deep double bass notes, repeated piano with delay effects, subtle, slowly shifting sustained strings, sparse percussion. Quiet, intense, concerned, suitable for a tense TV/Film scene, or as moody background music.
Bleepy sustained electronic and orchestral string track. Sparse electric guitar, tense plucked strings, soaring orchestral strings, subtle tinkling electronics and an electronic swell before giving way to a piano and string outro. Suspenseful, delicate and intriguing, suitable for an intriguing advert for an exciting, innovative product or for a suspenseful Film/TV scene.
Uplifting acoustic guitar track. Gentle, hopeful acoustic guitar riff, sparse drum beats punctuate the melody. Shaker percussion, piano chords and subtle bass guitar introduced. A slight build then back to the opening mood. Mellow, warm and positive, evoking the potential of America’s wide open plains. Would suit a cosy TV sequence or a advert for a company who want to take life’s problems off your hands. Sunshine after the rain.
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.
Four short loopable electronic soundscapes. Vast, dreamlike sound plains of sweeping synth sounds, glitches, muted beats and electronic rainbows. Hazy and enveloping, ephemeral sound snapshots to suit documentaries and intriguing television.
Ambient Piano features a piano chord progression and hazy strings and synth – a warm wall of sound reminiscent of Massive Attack’s Teardrop.
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.
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.
Atmospheric piano track with mechanical sound effects. Clunking and whirring background sound effects, like the inner workings of a pocket watch and the tapping of typewriter keys, underpin slow piano chords and lyrical orchestral strings, growing in emotional intensity throughout with added strings and more melodic, powerful piano. Introspective, pensive and nostalgic, would suit a TV/Film sequence set in 19th century Paris, or a scene evoking the mechanical workings of a dark, lonely city.
Pt 2 features sparse piano as well as harp and pizzicato violin strings.
