Orchestral thriller. Tense, sustained orchestral strings, with quirky orchestral percussion. Repeated suspenseful violin motif joins on top, followed by mysterious walking piano notes. Determined plucked strings and higher register violin take things up a notch. Rumbling, stomping percussion to a cacophonous, threatening section with more prominent piano and horn blasts. Dark, foreboding and full of anticipation, perfect for a commercial of epic proportions, a faux-epic pastiche, or dramatic TV/Doc scenes showcasing the brutal force of Mother Nature.
Dark electronic slow build. Menacing repeated bass synth line like Darth Vader humming a Kraftwerk tune, added synth line slowly expands outward, grows higher in register, fizzling, fleeting electro noises pulsate. Threatening, tense and foreboding, a nerve-wracking wait as the symptoms develop, perfect for a sombre TV/Documentary moment, a suspenseful film scene or cautionary advert.
Hypnotic hangdrum track. A hangdrum melody repeats in cycles, joined by hand drums, suspenseful electronics and tension-building strings. Mysterious, tense and thoughtful, moody music to suit a tense thriller – the disquieting calm before the storm.
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.
Powerful percussive thriller. Relentless cacophonous beats above a threatening descending electronic drone. Dark, atmospheric and tense, a breathless, terrifying race through dark back alleys, our character has chosen flight, but might have to fight…
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.
