Desert Robes

Exotic dub track. Bubbling dub bass guitar lurches around like a ghost from Scooby Doo, wistful piano, surfy slide-style electric guitar, mysterious, exotic brass and reverb-laden electric guitar and drums all plod purposefully and carefully across the track. Saxophone solos smoothly, then duets, twangy electric guitar plays Tinariwen, desert rock-style, all in to finish. Thoughtful, exotic, mysterious and suspenseful, would suit a quiet Film/TV scene set in an intriguing, new place, our character immersed in a new and curious world.

In Response

A warm jazz-influenced piano instrumental. A simple call and answer piano introduces the main melodic motif. This theme is developed through the piece into fuller jazz chords and improvised jazzy melodic fills. Slight change in tone then returns to the original motif. Warm, comfortable, secure and wholesome, made for a film/tv soundtrack to an emotional reunion or a goodbye-for-now-, set in a east coast US town as the leaves turn shades of red and gold.

Even Once (Suite)

Wistful solo jazz piano. A sustained note intro like raindrops followed by jazz chords, piano trills and a full melody. Pastoral, breathless and new, calling to mind the natural landscape, would suit a thoughtful film/doc/TV scene passing over a lush landscape refreshed and awake after a storm or a long winter.

Multi-instrumental version with warm strings, mellow saxophone and shuffling percussion joined by tinkling piano and a freak folk chorus of faraway voices, calling to mind Wickerman-style pagan England.

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.

Red Tail Reel

English folk revival style guitar instrumental. Finger-picking guitar, bluegrass-style broken chords throughout. Guitar bass notes are used to ground the hypnotic broken chord motifs, growing in intensity throughout. Wistful, pastoral and a bit 60s, would fit an intense film sequence, emotional decisions being made, set to a beautiful rural backdrop.

Daisy’s Cue

Melancholy waltz on orchestral strings. Pizzicato and legato orchestral strings move like a fast-flowing river over booming and bell-like percussion. Mid section descends into a playful circus before returning to the melody. Heartfelt, playful, wistful, slightly melancholic with a hint of magic, evoking the spirit of a resourceful French orphan or the twinkling delights of an old-fashioned fairground. Imbued with mystery and fantastical possibilities, but never far from danger…

Raven Cliff Falls

Folky guitar and violin instrumental. Major broken acoustic guitar chords and subtle bass notes joined by a sentimental folk-style violin melody. Added guitar adds second melody line before a sustained final violin note. Relaxed, nostalgic, positive, warm and a bit retro, this easy-going melody would suit a long advert, tv shows depicting rural life or an American film set on a vast, beautiful landscape.

Lonely Spirit Dance (Suite)

Orchestral track with exotic woodwind and rootsy guitar. A long string like a yearning animal cry, haunting female vocals like siren calls accompanied by slightly bluegrass style banjo and acoustic guitar. A melodic motif on woodwind and acoustic guitar pans an unspoiled landscape rich with colour and history. The guitar is offset by orchestral strings, elevating it to the level of an epic voyage across a fabled land. Magical, emotional, dramatic and wistful, we feel the spirits of another time traversing the land, perfect for a film/doc about a mysterious enigmatic place or time, or a nostalgic, epic but intimate advert.

Short version is 1 minute long with less of an epic build.

Electronic Ambient

A warm, bubbling synth track. Synth arpeggios undulate over warm strings and plucky guitar-like synth motif. All intertwine in a beautiful polyphony. Romantic, warm, loving, positive, hopeful. Like raindrops falling on water, this gentle track will cause emotional ripples. Perfect for a sentimental advert or, on film, a romantic conclusion.

Resting Tree

Gentle, emotional piano track. Jazzy piano chords and a hint of Gymnopédie no.1. The melodic change brings a more American flavour to this simple, thoughtful and hopeful solo piano piece. Warm, rich and wistful, perfect for an advert for a product that will help you to care for your family or bring a sense of warmth and security. Or for TV/film sequences set in a refined and leafy corner of the U.S.
