Before You Go (Suite)

Chilled electronica. Soft, atmospheric synth build becomes background synth drone under a slow, syncopated, tropical beat. Bright, colourful synth shines on top of an ambient base with growing beats and weightless synth lines reaching out like tree vines. Calm, peaceful and futuristic, a musical utopia, perfect for uplifting TV scenes or as an accompaniment to a soothing, hopeful advert for ethical fashion or worthy causes.

Vocal version features Molly Nilsson-style breathy female vocals – cool, calm and atmospheric with a hint of 90s nostalgia.

Blue Dusk

Atmospheric orchestral string track with electronic drones, vocal samples and Arabic-style percussion. Other-worldly ambient intro of vocal effects and muted sustained orchestral strings. Percussion joins, tambourine and hand drums, giving a Middle Eastern influence. Piano and string break. String drones and percussion resumes, choral effects added, lending gravitas and sense of awe and wonder. Powerful, atmospheric and mysterious, perfect for a historical, Middle-Eastern Film/TV/Documentary scene, sounds of a storied past.

Puddle Pondering

Hypnotic improvisational string track on Cretan lyra. Layers of overlapping Cretan lyra play drone-like modal phrases. At 3 minutes, the various lines come together along with added percussion, to form a more driving, unified, full melody, growing in intensity with hints of Irish folk music and Arabic music, to a powerful ending. Mesmerising, contemplative and experimental, singular sounds for a documentary looking at lesser-known cultures, spiritual places or undefinable combinations of cultures.

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.

Heavens Rage

Slow, mournful piano, cello and violin track. Long cello notes and sustained piano chords slowly shift between melancholy chords. Expressive violin solo enters with a Japanese feel, like the colourful melody of a Studio Ghibli soundtrack. Tender, poignant and romantic, perfect soundtrack to an epic American Civil War film or a wistful advert full of longing.

Piano and Cello and Piano Solo versions available.

Girift

Acoustic instrumental on cretan lyra and Turkish saz. Medium-paces introductory phrases, building in texture, complexity and speed, with a central melodic idea emerging. Bowed fiddle-like instrument joins with an earthy modal melodic passage, along with light, sparse percussion. Dynamic, mysterious and hypnotic, a cyclical effect of returning to the beginning, suitable for video work focused on the Middle East or Mediterranean, or a film/drama wanting an authentic, raw acoustic sound or an Arabic feel.

Sophisticated

Laid back synth track with trap beat. Snappy beats and sparkling percussive effects under a repetitive Japanese-influenced riff and calming swathes of soothing synth, ending of a puff of glitter. Perfect synth sounds for a glamorous summer advert, chilled, colourful and effervescent, like Negronis on a rooftop.

Kronos

Piano and orchestral string build. Orchestral strings undulate under soaring strings building to a powerful percussive section with vocal-like electronic samples and continuing epic strings. Quiet section with vocals then percussion rejoins building anticipation and tension to a multi-layered textural soundscape. Contrasting soft piano section to finish. Strange, dark and intriguing, pagan sounds reminiscent of singular Scandinavian pop like the Knife. Perfect for an onscreen threat or a bold, epic and uncanny film or TV scene.

Tresero A Maggio

Percussive hangdrum-led track. Melodic hangdrum and driving percussion lead an atmospheric instrumental. More melodic handpan section before the close. Anticipatory, excited and shrouded in mystery, perfect for nature or travel docs, imagine catching glimpses of lush foliage from train speeding high on a mountain track.

Interlude is more sparse, without the driving rhythms at first, building momentum and rhythmic intensity toward the end of the track.

Latina Natural

Gentle, beautiful Spanish guitar track. Wistful broken acoustic guitar chords, repeated an octave higher. Track builds with added strummed guitar and brighter melodic phrases. Warm, sweet and colourful. Red, orange and gold, like a summer sunset in a rural Spanish village, with a nod to the Wild West. Perfect for a seductive advert for Stella Artois, or a reflective film sequence.
