Fun, chilled and positive, a happy trip to Koopa Island, relaxed EDM for a fashion advert or Vice-style documentary soundtrack.

Gentle orchestral string track with electronic beats. Shimmering, sustained orchestral strings over subtle electronics. Muted irregular electronic beats add an edge, then choral vocal samples add heavenly harmonies. Strings build and envelop everything.

Pastoral woodwind septet. Flute melodies interweave, while others playfully arpeggiate underneath and and provide a walking bass line, moving merrily as one unit. Jaunty, thoughtful and enchanting, dancing from a dewy meadow into the dark woodlands of a frightening fairytale, perfect for fantastical films and TV scenes, as well as ads or elevated reality TV: Houses and Gardens of Great Britain or suchlike.
Melancholy solo piano track. Gentle piano intro with single melody notes ringing out. Ambient sounds of a revolving vinyl record. Constantly shifting chords move between hopeful brightness and melancholy darkness, some chords hinting at a threat looming ahead. Dark, anticipatory and resigned, acceptance of a scary fate, perfect film music for a melodramatic period piece or sophisticated horror film.
Mysterious solo piano track. Busy, melancholy piano melody over sparse, broken chords, moving between major and minor, from darkness and confusion to moments of light. Simple, curious and reflective, like an conversation with yourself, would suit a thoughtful, wintry TV/Film moment or puzzling documentary scene.
Dark atmospheric electronics. Quiet, desolate intro of electronic drones and feedback. Strange percussion creeps in with wonky bending notes sounding like a drunk cello. The instruments are swamped by a wave of electronics. Tense, mysterious, frightening and other-worldly, suitable for a strange, supernatural TV drama or a trippy movie scene.
Hypnotic improvisational string track on Cretan lyra. Layers of overlapping Cretan lyra play drone-like modal phrases.

Mesmerising, contemplative and experimental, singular sounds for a documentary looking at lesser-known cultures, spiritual places or undefinable combinations of cultures.
