Along A Wall

Melancholy solo piano. Mysterious piano waltz accompanied by oom-pah piano chords. Builds anticipation with swells in volume and tempo, Searching, suspenseful and sad, sounding slightly French, Amélie-like, in a quirky European style.

Bad Evil

Suspenseful orchestral track. Foreboding sustained cello note intro before choppy violins join with a sense of urgency over soaring orchestral violins. Brazen brass blasts a slow salute before a tense and troubled violin shaky violin break. A dark fast-moving sea of choppy violins and clashing notes. The clouds part with a more triumphant section as the initial violin motif returns, seemingly victorious. Sombre, threatening and frightening,perfect action film music, for when the going gets tough and it looks like our heroes will suffer a crushing defeat. Instead, they hold on to power…for now.

Unconditional

Tense orchestral build. Repeated choppy orchestral string motif builds, electronic hints added and orchestral elements provide base. Melancholy violin melody emerges interspersed with military-style drums fills. Layers of lush strings join with subtle horns, building a dense orchestral soundscape with incongruous electronics bubbling beneath. Emotional, reflective and suspenseful, a worrying track to suit a film scene where man is recklessly destroying nature, a daring, dangerous feat is being attempted, or unrest of the mind threatens to overwhelm the protagonist.

Embrace the Silence

Melancholy piano waltz. Minor key piano progression to begin, looped under repeated single piano note motif. Higher register introduced and single notes become chords, building texture and anticipation. A piano melody emerges, soft and lyrical, growing higher and more powerful. Introspective and emotional, the sound of heartbreak and longing. Perfect for tense, emotional television and documentaries. A pleading lover, a harsh rebuke…left alone in silence.

Obstinate

Dramatic orchestral track. A flighty melodic phrase on woodwind, mimicked by strings and punctuated by vigorous percussion, joined by countermelody on woodwind before fuller orchestral melody enters. Excited, suspenseful, tense and nervous. Reminiscent of the Animals of Farthing Wood theme, suitable for a dramatic, high stakes film/TV sequence or an advert for a disaster-averting product.

Ghetto Orchestra

Dark, electronic trap with string samples. 90s-influenced string samples, distorted male vocal sample saying ‘ID please’, trap beats and female vocal sample begin. Joined by more fleeting string samples. Underwater section before the string-led section returns. Cool, urban and flashy in a 90s way, good music to strut to, perfect for tense, intriguing TV/Film/Doc scenes.

Percussion Experiments

Magical and dreamy, with an ethereal celeste and orchestral percussions that create a compelling mix of childish playfulness and a confident rhythmical manner. It will suit well 30 seconds adverts. A sense of discovery for a mysterious world where children with magical powers play with castles made of sand.

Damage

Dreamy and emotional but polluted in its arrangement, with digitally distorted synthesisers that swoop around the sonic sky and create an interesting black and white post apocalyptic romance theme. Futuristic and hypnotic, there is also a nice and straight kick drum bouncing on the lower spectrum of frequencies that help in establishing a catchy danceable rhythm.

Captured

Dark and sneaky, a synthesised bass drone decorated with prepared piano inserts and strings articulations that bring in a cheap horror feeling with an industrial element. This will nicely go along with those kind of thrillers and horrors where everyone in the audience thinks: “Really?”. For scary exploitation and b-movies with an ironic edge.

In the Dead of the Night

Pensive and somber, with an overarching negative mood given by bassy orchestral drones and subtle electronics. The middle section features a poignant counterpoint between a cello and an oboe. A sparse and saturnine sense of the inevitable leaning to Hollywood style romance stories.
