Tense orchestral track. Piano intro, chiming marimba, melancholy lyrical cello solo, threatening piano chords and deep, dangerous double bass builds to more tense, dynamic section. Wailing violins and high piano notes spell an underlying threat. Intriguing, suspenseful and chilling at times, murder-mystery music, would suit a tense film scene or an elegantly violent high society thriller.
Dark electronic thriller. Fat synths, punchy beats and samples, underwater synth line, beats intensify with a driving synth melody line and frenetic arpeggiated synths. Cold, motorik and brazen, like an aural skydive, would suit a macho action film, or an advert for a bombastic place or product.
Cinematic orchestral track. Rumbling percussion, horn blasts, soaring orchestral strings and disruptive glitches, play out over a futuristic battlefield. Dramatic and threatening but hopeful, would suit a wartime thriller set in a dystopian future or an advert evoking a challenge of epic proportions.
Tense, beat-driven loopable electronic texture. Dark breakbeat and bass synths. Tense, dark and urban, like the soundtrack to a computer game where we navigate dark, dangerous city streets after dark, dodging bad guys along the way.
Pulsating synth soundscape, suitable for continuous looping. Darting synths and fast-paced echoing beats. High-tension, dark and anxiety-inducing, would suit a tense action-movie moment when our protagonist stalks his enemies in a risky re-con mission.
High tension electronic track. Insistent synths attack, alternating between a rough fuzz and a clear pulsating synth sound. More layers added as the tension builds with panning beats escalating the tension. A piano outro gives some relief. We’re out of danger…for now. Intense, nerve-wracking, dark, urban, the soundtrack to a Jason Bourne-style race against time, an urban thriller, suitable for chase sequences on TV/Film or adverts parodying this genre.
Pulsating instrumental electronic track. A threatening synth pulse, turning into a full blown drum ‘n’ bass beat with a repeated melodic synth motif on top. A pause, the pulse re-enters, relentless and driving, with laser synth beats and other electronic effects. The track builds until the end. Breathless, thrilling, cool and dark, perfect for a tense chase scene in a bombastic urban gangster tv/film sequence or an ad parodying this type of edgy thriller.
A tense orchestral build. Sustained string sections followed by a quiet moment of pizzicato, before a final dramatic calamitous crescendo. Gripping, intense, scary and nerve-wracking. Things are not looking good for our protagonist in this scene. It’s a matter of life and death.
Epic and dramatic, with an orchestral soul and a hybrid instalment of percussion and arpeggiated synths that leave every hesitation behind and rhythmically forces your character to take on its responsibilities. Its modern arrangement gives way to a multitude of settings, including Chris Nolan-like epic dramas, antihero quests, sci-fi threatening activities.
Distorted synth track. A dramatic, industrial-sounding build followed by broad beats and a heavy synth line. Melodic yet heavy, edgy and cool, this track would suit a tense contemporary thriller, crime drama or urban advert.
