Queen of the Bees

Playful, percussive, pizzicato orchestral string track. Magical swooping strings and choppy, characterful violins duel over a swirling bed of orchestral hum with plucked violins and dynamic double bass adding further layers of texture. Quirky, pastoral and full of giddy anticipation, perfect for a nature programme on the fleeting buzzing of insect life, or equally suitable for a Christmas segment building seasonal excitement.

Girift

Acoustic instrumental on cretan lyra and Turkish saz. Medium-paces introductory phrases, building in texture, complexity and speed, with a central melodic idea emerging. Bowed fiddle-like instrument joins with an earthy modal melodic passage, along with light, sparse percussion. Dynamic, mysterious and hypnotic, a cyclical effect of returning to the beginning, suitable for video work focused on the Middle East or Mediterranean, or a film/drama wanting an authentic, raw acoustic sound or an Arabic feel.

Kronos

Piano and orchestral string build. Orchestral strings undulate under soaring strings building to a powerful percussive section with vocal-like electronic samples and continuing epic strings. Quiet section with vocals then percussion rejoins building anticipation and tension to a multi-layered textural soundscape. Contrasting soft piano section to finish. Strange, dark and intriguing, pagan sounds reminiscent of singular Scandinavian pop like the Knife. Perfect for an onscreen threat or a bold, epic and uncanny film or TV scene.

In Harmony

Melancholy piano and electronic drone track. Pulsating electronics, laser synth sounds, fleeting sound FX and sparse piano chords. Piano grows and fleeting electronics steady and form an ambient drone. Sparse beats join. Snare drum and emotional piano chords come and go over a wave of atmospheric drones, building texture with an electric guitar drone. Unpredictable, downbeat and unstable, subtle emotional background music for a dark documentary or TV show.

Clear Water

Atmospheric electronic track. Drum machine beats joined by chordal intro on synth. Arpeggiated synth plays a repetitive melody. Warm sustained synths underpin the bright, clear, undulating melody, fresh like rainwater. Extra texture with added beats and ambient synth. Intriguing, optimistic and cool, soothing synths bringing to mind water droplets on new saplings, cool rocks and epic green/blue vistas. Sounding a bit like Santigold, perfect for stylish eco-advertising, a flashy electric car driving through a crisp mountain road, or travel Documentaries.

Breeze

Atmospheric electronic track. Japanese-sounding chiming percussion, textural water sounds, shakers, rattling beats and melodic beats growing in intensity. A definitive gong and a trail of dripping water to finish. Evoking the natural world, as well as ancient Eastern wisdom, ethereal, thoughtful and intense, like a more urgent version of the Lost in Translation soundtrack, or the original music for American Beauty, curious and evocative, suitable for intriguing adverts, soul-searching TV/Film or nature documentaries.

These Waters Remember Part 4

Tense acoustic guitar track. Acoustic guitar riff, repeated, building anticipation. Electric guitar line joins, building the texture. Electric guitar effects added, delay creates a chiming effect. Guitar layers added, creating a cacophonous, reverberating atmosphere. Wordless female vocals join, like a flamenco song or Portugese fado. Earthy, meditative and tense. Would suit a dramatic TV/Film moment, a female wailing, like Mother Nature herself crying out.

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.
