Salutations Plains Wanderer

Dreamy multi-instrumental track. Gentle, swaying, looped piano motif, joined by bright, pealing keys, hypnotic and cyclical. Moves to a jazz keyboard sound, joined by violin and cello sharing fragments of melody. High register violin and ascending keys drive the melody to an anticipatory hight point. A new section: soft, tender Satie-like chordal piano, joined by breathy sustained strings. A soothing variation on the original motif to finish. Romantic, thoughtful and other-worldly,a sonic dream, astral wanderings with one foot in the 20th century. Would suit a reflective TV scene or a very beautiful documentary.

Love Letter

Romantic piano track. Sullen piano arpeggios, searching and thoughtful. Higher register piano enters, adding brightness, hope and lyricism. Build section featuring woodwind and a delicate string section. Opens out into an inspiring piano section with accompanying strings to finish. Gentle, tender and passionate, with hints of melancholy, doubts about love? Suitable for a romantic TV/Film scene, or a loving daydream.

Susenyos

Instrumental soulful jazz. Theremin effect over woozy brass intro with subtle keyboard chords. Drums and bass guitar enter, brass moves to a more melodic motif. Electric guitar flourishes then electric guitar and vibraphone melody. Change of pace to a more percussive gallop rhythm with horns. Back to bass, floating theremin and lazy brass and a dreamy guitar and brass melody, like bobbing on the ocean. Upbeat, driving rhythmic section on keys, drums and guitar, punchy brass and soulful saxophone build before slowing to a finish. Relaxed, lush, warm and hopeful, would suit a retro Film/TV scene, growing in excitement, tension building, or a romantic moment on screen where tenderness swings to all out love.

Solo Piano version available.

Not My Ask

Romantic jazz instrumental. Breathy saxophone melody, softly strummed guitar and gentle piano chords, joined by a selection of strings playing the undulating melodic idea in canon. Saxophone plays out before melting away to sultry breathiness again for the wistful mid-section. Strings wail, clarinet cuts through as the track builds in intensity before a quiet, reduced ending. Beautiful, sensual, intense and thoughtful, like the soulful East African jazz of Étiopiques. Would suit a highly charged, tender, romantic moment on TV/Film, or a reflective advert for something very special.

Reconciliation

Gentle acoustic guitar track. Emotional acoustic guitar, soft atmospheric electronics, breezy, subtle drums, and delicate strings. Tender, heart-warming and romantic, perfect for an pensive TV/Film scene, an emotional goodbye or an advert for a caring product.

The Sea

Solo Piano waltz. Swooning, swaying piano motifs, floating chord progressions and buoyant piano lines and a swell of solo piano over a waltzing rhythm. Earnest, emotional, searching, tender and, finally, determined. A journey across the sea surface and into the depths, would suit a TV/Film scene with heavy emotional impact or more intimate, soul-searching scenarios.

December Days

Atmospheric piano. Lyrical solo piano, emotional and free moving, like a piano version of Concerto de Aranjuez. Builds to a chordal section, before a new section with gentle trills and melodic motifs. Slight chordal dissonance around 6 mins before a tender final stretch. Introspective, emotional and thoughtful, emotional piano for reflective TV/Film/Doc scenes, charity adverts, family dramas and pastoral wanderings.

Adagio

Melancholy piano and orchestral string track. Emotional sustained string swells, a deep bed of full double bass with gentle piano notes picked out, heavy with meaning. Slow-moving, introspective, with an almost religious sense of thoughtful wonder, suitable for TV/Film/Doc scenes of emotional intensity, feels like a difficult but necessary full stop, something significant coming to an end.

      Adagio-JPM

New England (Suite)

Contemplative interlaced harp and piano. A repetitive harp intro is accompanied by sparse piano chords, interweaving, questioning and answering each other. Ever changing piano chords shift the mood, creating sombre moments as well as moments of hope and clarity. Sparse, delicate and emotional, torn but determined. Driving in a car through suburban America, Autumn leaves falling, crunching underfoot. Ringing out changes.

Harp and No harp versions are simplified melodies with an added synth drone.

The Jester

Wistful solo piano. Dramatic, comedic chordal piano descent before Amélie-style European piano. Lolloping, waltz section, turns melancholy with low, stormy piano chords. Rumbling bass clef notes before the sun comes out with a bright tinkling segment, leading to a romantic waltzing around the keys. Indecisive, dramatic, tender yet troubled, would suit a European film set in on rainy Paris street, the character’s tumultuous lives at odds with their quaint surroundings.
