Illumina

Quietly epic cinematic orchestral string build with electric guitar and piano. Sustained orchestral strings over hand drum percussion. Warm synth notes and tinkling piano melody bring lightness and joyful anticipation. Angelic choral vocal samples break in before a change to a harder synth section. The sunshine breaks through the clouds with electric guitar cutting through the wash of strings and choral vocals. Piano rejoins with a simple, hopeful melodic pattern. Powerful and moving, yet gentle and thoughtful, Elbow-like emotional build to suit an inspiring advert or a triumphant onscreen finale.

Eclipse

Breezy electronic track. Fat 90s synths ring out over a steady dance beat. Tinkling electronic effects create texture, the pitch moves up and discords ring out. Counter melody on synth and bouncier beats bring a laid back energy. Fun, chilled and happy, a stress-free 90s throwback, kind of cheesy but fun, a sophisticated Vengaboys meets Pet Shop Boys.

It’s Just What I Think

Nostalgic soundtrack to kids playtime. Naive intro on warm, retro keys. Joined by sound effects, tinkling cans and crunching paper. Vocal ‘Ooohs’ enter with uplifting drums, interrupted by spoken word samples. A steady drum beat, keys and percussive tin can groove settles in, sounding like a microscopic recording of ants in work in the backyard. A new synth-led section brings fantasy, twinkling lights and gurgling sound effects, before a return to the melody with added percussive effects. Innocent, hopeful and nostalgic, suitable for a heartwarming advert looking at families, kids and the joys of childhood.

Osier

Thoughtful orchestral string track. String intro like a Purcell opera, gives way to warm, tinkling piano with sensitive string accompaniment, lush and lyrical with a slightly Baroque feel, piano acting as walking bass. Marimba arpeggios join later, adding an off-kilter, unexpected further element to the mix. Intriguing and hopeful yet conflicted, a steady piece of music,gliding through genres. Would suit a TV/Film drama, documentary or advert conjuring a regal past with a hint of eccentricity.

In-Sen

Multi-instrumental contemporary folk. Gentle marimba intro, joined by sustained violin and cello fragments. Tinkling piano mimics the strings, leading to a darkening of mood and intense, high register string-lead movement. Resolves to gently swaying, lingering light strings and piano. Next section feels like gentle rocking in an ocean trawler. Harp and strings duel steadily to a choppy finale. Intriguing, dynamic and searching, a curious, undulating, seafaring piece, perfect for mysterious TV/Doc scenes.

Piano Duet

Plinky-plonky electronic track. Muted, gentle kalimba-like keyboard notes with a tinkling percussive glockenspiel-like motif above. A growing wash of calming synth emerges from beneath. Meditative, warm, mellow and reflective, like bathing in calming sound, with African-style melodic percussion but Icelandic, glassy like Amiina, perfect for a gentle, family advert or introspective TV/Film/Doc scene.

Healing

Yearning piano and string track. Soft repeated piano notes to introduce the delicate piano melody. Hints of electronic effects. Expands into a beautiful piano melodic motif. Another layer of piano harmonises in a higher register. Reduces to tinkling notes. Simple block chords enter above, followed by the melody. Builds with added strings. Thoughtful, introspective, then dramatic and romantic, would suit a heartbreaking TV scene, our protagonists driven apart by circumstances outside of their control. They still cling to hope. Time heals.

’40s Swoon

Snippet of dreamy 1940s big band music. Lush orchestral strings, tinkling piano, shuffling drums and a warm, vocal chorus swell effect. Warm, retro and uplifting, jazzy, old-fashioned music for swaying gently to, at the holidays, while dressed to the nines, in 1940s America.

Playtime

Playful woodwind track. Busy orchestral strings, lyrical woodwind and jaunty, tinkling piano. Pastoral, fun and light-hearted, evoking the British countryside, would suit a cheerful advert or TV/Film scene about the beauty and wonder of the natural world.

Below The Pits

Pensive solo piano waltz. Waltz rhythm to begin with with a mournful, romantic accompanying melody. Opens into an oom pah pah section with tinkling high piano notes before returning to the original wistful theme. Sombre and melancholy yet idealistic and romantic, European in style and mood, calling to mind French clowns with sad faces, this would suit a scene in a moody European film or a thoughtful documentary.
