Sinope

Beautiful solo piano track. Soft, waltzing piano chord progressions become a fuller sound, a more urgent, emotional piano passage full of longing. Moves to dramatic high register piano to end. Thoughtful, reflective and romantic, perfect, Amélie-esque undulating piano to accompany an introverted character, finally opening up to the world; an awakening; a ray of sunshine.

Babette

Quick, violin-led jazz waltz. Violin leads with fast, intricate melody line soaring over a bed of laid-back jazz waltz rhythm on double bass, Spanish guitar and percussion. Spanish guitar takes a solo, over the soft, shuffle of acoustic guitar and percussion. Violin returns.Intriguing, mysterious and positive, European jazz for an advert traversing the cobbled streets of a French city in a new Renault, or for a bright-eyed, Woody Allen-style cinematic love letter to Europe.

Bed track has no violin or guitar solos, more prominent double bass.

Kite

Melancholy piano and orchestral string track. Piano leads an off-kilter waltz, joined by orchestral strings that build throughout, soaring by the finish, and gentle marimba murmurings. Slow, solemn and sensual with hints of light and hope breaking through. Perfect for a desolate TV/Doc/Film scene, imagine a kite stuck in the upper branches of a tree, disintegrating in harsh winter winds, or a sad silent movie. Also suitable as woozy, tragic, lonesome background music to an advert.

Krastini

Solo piano track. Delicate piano notes turn into a waltzing rhythm, gently bobbing along, innocently, wistfully. Melody is repeated in a higher register, reaching higher, growing in confidence and strength. The melody is repeated for the last time, loud and strong, mid-range. Searching, gentle and determined, thoughtful music for a romantic, hopeful advert or TV/Film scene, quiet hope and resolve.

Embrace the Silence

Melancholy piano waltz. Minor key piano progression to begin, looped under repeated single piano note motif.

The Sea

Solo Piano waltz. Swooning, swaying piano motifs, floating chord progressions and buoyant piano lines and a swell of solo piano over a waltzing rhythm. Earnest, emotional, searching, tender and, finally, determined. A journey across the sea surface and into the depths, would suit a TV/Film scene with heavy emotional impact or more intimate, soul-searching scenarios.

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.
