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.

Zomorud

Instrumental fusion of Greek, Turkish and Irish folk musics. Unpredictable time signatures, non-Western scales and rolling melodic phrases played on Cretan lyra and Middle Eastern saz, joined by violin and subtle percussion. Murky and intricate, growing in speed and intensity throughout. Sombre yet determined, delivered with passionate vehemence, perfect music for a global documentary or Film/TV scene representing Turkish or Middle Eastern culture.

Glasshouse Studies II

Beautiful, emotional piano track with violin and clarinet. Chiming, resonant Satie-style piano joined by tender violin and warm, moving clarinet. Piano chords stop before an emotive new section is revealed, with soaring violin and heartfelt clarinet answering back, like a lovers duet. Passionate, stirring and inspiring, yearning music for a TV/Film scene or thoughtful documentary piece.

Little Green

Violin instrumental in waltz time. Two violins play an Irish-style repeated folk melody, intertwining, bowing with a rough and ready quality. Plaintive, melancholy and mesmeric, a fusion of Irish and Middle Eastern tonality, perfect for a documentary about either part of the world, or a hypnotic onscreen dance of cultures.

Roots (Suite)

Acoustic guitar and piano track with experimental elements. Gentle acoustic guitar punctuated with electronic noise and water sounds. Joined by warm piano and hints of playfully subtle saxophone, minor chords growing in intensity and turning to major for a hopeful finish. Mysterious, cheeky and subversive, brings to mind a magical woodland scene of trees going walkies while your back is turned. Perfect for TV/Film/Docs, pastoral settings and subtly powerful storytelling.

Bed version is more intimate, featuring more raw, sparse acoustic guitar, brings out the scratchy, barely-there violin and teasing background noise.

Party of Alt

Tense piano and string tracks with effects. Murky and atmospheric, repeated, tension-building piano melody over stark, melancholy strings and a wash of cool ambience. Tense, nerve-wracking and uneasy, perfect haunting soundscape for a crime documentary or a melancholy TV drama.

Tide of Feelings

Emotional pop/rock. Drum build with sparse piano chords. Violin-like drawn-out samples mournfully yearn over the drums and piano. Strings flutter build to expressive vocal samples and more string layers. Enveloping, romantic and thoughtful, would suit a Film/TV scene of great emotional and romantic tension.

Glasshouse Studies III

Slow, emotive piano track with violin and clarinet. Sparse, atmospheric piano, chords resonating, single piano notes ringing out above. Passionate violin enters with long, languid notes full of yearning. Clarinet takes over on melody, before both intertwine for the final section. Heartfelt, gentle and melancholy, perfect tender soundtrack to a moving Film/TV scene.

War and Peace

Melodramatic orchestral string and piano track. Melancholy piano chordal intro. Dramatic male choral samples and sombre violin join, adding drama and intrigue. Fuller strings enter and rumbling percussion creates a rousing, dramatic effect, ending abruptly. Pensive, dark and bombastic, suitable for highly strung advert, or as a tongue-in-cheek soundtrack to an investigative documentary or jokey Reality TV scene.
