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.

Noise Water Beats

Experimental Lo-Fi Hip Hop track. Ambient sounds with a degrading, crackling quality, kitchen pottering, water whooshing, industrial machine-like noises, joined by resonant piano chords and crunchy beats. 90s, Hip Hop beats drive the track, with looped piano chords and background noise a constant. Mysterious, experimental, chilled and darkly playful, like exploring the Looney Tunes Haunted House, off-kilter beats and samples to suit a Vice news style documentary or contemporary urban filmmaking.

SH Intro

Bleepy electronics. Vocal sample like wind and synths like water evoke the natural world in an electronic soundscape. Peaceful, ethereal, calm and gentle, but still a little unnerving…suitable for an onscreen hallucination or dreamlike montage.

Cosmo Volkov

Oud instrumental with ambient sounds. Sounds of flowing water introduce an atmospheric, heartfelt oud solo, and linger in the background throughout. Subtle snare drum marks the end of long, lyrical phrases. Contemplative and reflective with hints of nostalgia, perfect for documentaries set in the Middle East or nature docs panning vast desert landscapes.

All Be Alright (Suite)

Atmospheric hang drum track. Repeated melodic phrase on handpan, like heavy water droplets. Synth drones and hangdrum overtones hang still and suspended in the atmosphere. Woodwind-like sustained notes and percussive hits add colour. Calm, thoughtful and introspective. Still and reflective with a hint of mystery, perfect for nature docs or mysterious, other-worldly film scenes.

Come Through

Downbeat electronic RnB track. Warm piano chord progression, muted, syncopated beats, vocal samples and dreamy reverb build a sultry, expectant atmosphere. Trap beats and breathy Enya-like female vocals added. Warm, fat, nostalgic synths join with electric guitar flourishes cutting through the haze. Cool, clear synth like water droplets takes on the chord progression before a full ending. Romantic, nostalgic and hopeful, like if the Drive soundtrack was a bit more RnB. A subtly determined soundscape, perfect for pensive and decisive TV/Film/Doc moments, ultimately leaving the past behind.

Clear Water

Atmospheric electronic track. Drum machine beats joined by chordal intro on synth. Arpeggiated synth plays a repetitive melody. Warm sustained synths underpin the bright, clear, undulating melody, fresh like rainwater. Extra texture with added beats and ambient synth. Intriguing, optimistic and cool, soothing synths bringing to mind water droplets on new saplings, cool rocks and epic green/blue vistas. Sounding a bit like Santigold, perfect for stylish eco-advertising, a flashy electric car driving through a crisp mountain road, or travel Documentaries.

Breeze

Atmospheric electronic track. Japanese-sounding chiming percussion, textural water sounds, shakers, rattling beats and melodic beats growing in intensity. A definitive gong and a trail of dripping water to finish. Evoking the natural world, as well as ancient Eastern wisdom, ethereal, thoughtful and intense, like a more urgent version of the Lost in Translation soundtrack, or the original music for American Beauty, curious and evocative, suitable for intriguing adverts, soul-searching TV/Film or nature documentaries.

Sleepcloud

Orchestral string-led instrumental with harp. Melodic harp solo, bright and hopeful, joined by orchestral strings playing lush, sustained notes and rich marimba. Harp takes on a jaunty rhythm under the sturdy strings. A marimba break, before a bubbling harp and percussion duel takes place under languid violin. Warm marimba like giant water droplets breaks out into an excited rhythm. A marimba break once more, before a return to the lazy string melody. Woozy, relaxed and hypnotic, like a Joanna Newsom instrumental evoking the natural world, would suit nature documentaries or thoughtful Film/TV scenes.
