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.

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.

The glass lake

Somber and ethereal, with a piercing violin, a mellow vibraphone, and a classical piano that dialogue in a very physical and earthy performance in the vein of mid 1800s classical sonatas. Structured in 4 parts, the violin acts as a connector between all the sections and bridges firstly the vibraphone and then the piano, before returning solo for the coda. High quality execution that will fit dramas with a sense of sadness and longing with a seethed edge.

Windswept

Emotional and delicate, a pianoforte performance that makes sapient use of harmonics and arpeggio technique to deliver a poignant yet firm episode of music. It builds a substantial amount of emotional content without never being too blatant or showy. This would suit romantic dramas and similar applications, possibly where a solo character is involved.

Coum Dhíneol

Mellow and sincere, 3 minutes piece of tender arpeggiated piano that playfully places itself on the boundaries between melancholy and happiness. It is gentle but firm in its unraveling, suggesting a scene where your character can face its fate without fear of failing or pain. Several applications possible, from emotion driven soundtracks to classy corporate advertising.

End of an Era

Delicate and mild, with piano and strings orchestrated in a classic manner and built to deliver poignancy and introspection at their earnest level. It swells in the middle section both in intensity and intention, to create a sense of hopefulness that contrasts the stark and rarefied beginning. Will suit coming of age stories with frail and delicate yet resolute characters.
