Listen to the Dialogue While I Do My Thing

Atmospheric synth instrumental. Layers of echoing synth. Fat, warm, 80s reverb-laden sound. Sombre orchestral string effect, chiming piano and glacial beats gives a serious, driving feeling. Intriguing, mysterious and strange, Twin Peaks-style ambience crossed with Enya and the Crimewatch theme tune, would suit a dark TV drama or as tension-building background music to an eye-opening documentary.

Mea Culpa

Uplifting piano-led build. Strange delicate guitar, wispy sustained strings, sombre piano chords, floating overtones, before a dramatic entry by spirited, melodic piano, determined drums and feel-good orchestral strings. Curious, pensive and meandering before a powerful, driven, excited outburst. Suitable for a dramatic change in tone on TV/Adverts. This week on Celebrity Tummy Tuck, one of the group is packing their bags and on their way home…or are they?? NO! Everyone gets to stay, and go on a yacht!!!

Clean version features alt beginning, just piano.

Version available with No Drums.

1 min and 30 secs ad length versions available.

Slow Cave In

Atmospheric strings track. Duelling raspy string effects, subtle ambient noise, subtle electronic drone imitating string overtones. Tense, suspended, unmoving, claustrophobia on a loop, would suit an uncertain situation that shows no sign of being resolved.

Piano version lighter, with more movement from the intermittent piano. For more hopeful onscreen situations.

Gamelan version lighter, more soothing and meditative.

Slow Dance 1

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.

Even Once (Suite)

Wistful solo jazz piano. A sustained note intro like raindrops followed by jazz chords, piano trills and a full melody. Pastoral, breathless and new, calling to mind the natural landscape, would suit a thoughtful film/doc/TV scene passing over a lush landscape refreshed and awake after a storm or a long winter.

Multi-instrumental version with warm strings, mellow saxophone and shuffling percussion joined by tinkling piano and a freak folk chorus of faraway voices, calling to mind Wickerman-style pagan England.

Super Sonic Speed Gaming

Cute retro video game music. Fat synth arpeggios and high pitched synth intro before a head-bopping blobby synth and beat section with cutesy synth flourishes. Ridiculously, relentlessly happy and positive, 8-bit sunshine and rainbows, suitable for an upbeat advert for a fun event or product.

The Wall Pt 1 & 2

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.

Droid

Dark, foreboding electronic track. Synth blasts, sirens sounds, screeching string samples and electronic glitches. Tense, threatening music for a post-apocalyptic world, where technology has surpassed human intelligence and machines are our unforgiving masters. Uh oh! Also suitable for sleek and powerful car adverts or an intense sports competition.

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.

Daisy’s Cue

Melancholy waltz on orchestral strings. Pizzicato and legato orchestral strings move like a fast-flowing river over booming and bell-like percussion. Mid section descends into a playful circus before returning to the melody. Heartfelt, playful, wistful, slightly melancholic with a hint of magic, evoking the spirit of a resourceful French orphan or the twinkling delights of an old-fashioned fairground. Imbued with mystery and fantastical possibilities, but never far from danger…
