An Unusual Journey

Playful orchestral track. A jaunty woodwind motif to begin, joined by sparse glockenspiel setting a cheeky and playful tone. Languid strings join, adding an air of grandeur. Strings take prominence, woodwind takes an accompanying role. Then short bursts of strings interspersed with determined oboe. Stronger string section builds to a call and answer between gentle woodwind and serious strings, before calm finish. Pastoral, light-hearted, with serious undertones, like the Animals of Farthing Wood bounding among the trees only to come across a gun-toting farmer, before an ingenious escape. Perfect music to accompany intriguing documentary scenes about nature and animals, or reality TV, showing humans in their natural habitat.

Love Letter

Romantic piano track. Sullen piano arpeggios, searching and thoughtful. Higher register piano enters, adding brightness, hope and lyricism. Build section featuring woodwind and a delicate string section. Opens out into an inspiring piano section with accompanying strings to finish. Gentle, tender and passionate, with hints of melancholy, doubts about love? Suitable for a romantic TV/Film scene, or a loving daydream.

Obstinate

Dramatic orchestral track. A flighty melodic phrase on woodwind, mimicked by strings and punctuated by vigorous percussion, joined by countermelody on woodwind before fuller orchestral melody enters. Excited, suspenseful, tense and nervous. Reminiscent of the Animals of Farthing Wood theme, suitable for a dramatic, high stakes film/TV sequence or an advert for a disaster-averting product.

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.

Comedy

Slapstick orchestral romp with humorous sound effects. Oom-pah rhythm underpins snatches of playful woodwind melody. This jaunty rollercoaster careers through snatches of percussion, brass and strings. Happy, quirky, ramshackle but slick, the perfect soundtrack to a slapstick pastiche of old movies or cartoons, in an advert or TV/Film setting.

Woodwind Fun

Playful woodwind call and answer. Brass “bass line” gives a foundation to the intertwined flute and reed lines’ jolly game of tag above. Fun, playful, pastoral and old-fashioned, feels like we’re prancing through the countryside with Mr. Toad and friends, or a having a jaunt in a topsy-turvy English hotel by the seaside.

Avenger (Suite)

An epic menacing orchestral track with an electronic edge. Strings and bombastic drums begin before we are drawn in to the choppy waters of a dynamic string section. An unnerving interlude on synth before the horns, loud drums and frenetic strings return, ending on a dramatic drum roll. Scary, menacing, brash, bold, bombastic. Suitable for a pastiche advert for a powerful movement or bold product, or for an dark, intense film sequence.

Alternative version no.1 features an longer interlude of tribal drums and a distant male roar.

Avenger string section version- no drums.

Shorter versions available (60 secs, 27 secs).

Swings and Roundabouts

Quirky brass and percussion instrumental. Jazzy drum intro, catchy melody kicks in on woodwind, underpinned by rollicking drums and playful bass guitar. A short drum break then back to the full melody. Fun, joyful, silly and breezy, a short ad length ditty, would suit a light-hearted commercial featuring cute kids running around with cute dogs unravelling loads of toilet paper. Would also suit kids TV interludes.

Drums and Bass Only version available.

30 sec ad length version available.
