Evolving

Upbeat electronic track. Cute synths and samples, compressed beats, arpeggiated synth, quirky beats and insistent rhythms. Hyperactive build then big drop into sparkling fantasy synth world of colourful fluffy creatures, shimmering pink lakes, diamanté mountains and rainbows. Warm, sweet with a hint of knowing but sincere naivety, like a PC Music track, perfect ultra pop, would suit adverts for futuristic, high tech yet fun devices, or young TV or Reality shows.

No Lead version is lighter, more open. Perfect commercial TV soundtrack.

No Drums and No Bass versions available.

Awhrae

Emotional slow-paced string track. Melancholy string solo for 1 min, higher violin line joins, sparse, sombre piano chords punctuate the melody. Slowly shifting, the melody is shared, moments of light and bliss emerging through chordal changes. Further string lines join and the piano rings out on the higher register, a walking accompaniment in reminiscent of stately Baroque style. Strings multiply and build, piano gains strength to a powerful emotional effect. Beautiful, lyrical and sad, a sense of deep yearning permeates the track, perfect film music, cutting through a beautiful imagery, lending an air of nostalgia, romance and longing.

Healing

Yearning piano and string track. Soft repeated piano notes to introduce the delicate piano melody. Hints of electronic effects. Expands into a beautiful piano melodic motif. Another layer of piano harmonises in a higher register. Reduces to tinkling notes. Simple block chords enter above, followed by the melody. Builds with added strings. Thoughtful, introspective, then dramatic and romantic, would suit a heartbreaking TV scene, our protagonists driven apart by circumstances outside of their control. They still cling to hope. Time heals.

Circles

Lyrical solo piano track. Ripples of gentle piano, repetitive descending motifs like rainfall. Grows in intensity, joined by deep, emotive strings. Returns to slowed-down solo piano. Lush, heady and nostalgic, suitable for pensive onscreen longing. Still yearning for lost love but soon the world opens up afresh in the cycle of life.

All Alone (Suite)

Wistful lounge-jazz number. Yearning, saxophone, louche piano, gentle shuffling drums and calm, plodding double bass. Dreamy, nostalgic and romantic and relaxed, suitable for a retro TV/Film scene, a first dance between new lovers, or reminiscing on a first love, now a distant memory. A throw-back to the love stories of old black-and-white films.

Bed track has no sax, more subtle, calm and chilled.

Tonight We Drink Wine and Dance

Melancholy solo piano. Amélie-style minor oom-pah chords, growing in intensity and embellishment throughout the track. Another line of piano plays a lyrical melody above the regular chords. An energetic chorus brings a modulation and intricate break. Back to opening chords for a finish. Emotional and wretched, yet passionate, would suit an advert or TV scene requiring Gallic charm and impulsive, reckless emotion.

‘Underscore’ version features chords only, no melody line.

Piano and Cello

Sombre piano and cello track with subtle sound effects. Crackling record player static and cello sound effects underlie minor piano arpeggios and sustained, emotive cello. Thoughtful, melancholy and yearning, imagine a desolate TV/Film sequence set on a grey, rainy street in a European city in the aftermath of a devastating event.

French Waltz

Melancholy piano track. Anticipatory block piano chords, building to a crescendo then fading…a morose melody is introduced over the plaintive chords. Chords turn to wave-like broken chords undulating rapidly beneath the melody. A sombre melody takes off, building to include some subtle brass accompaniment, reminiscent of french accordion music. Dark and sullen, yet romantic and searching. Suitable for a rain-soaked walk home after a loveless encounter on TV/Film; a sad and lonely character who still yearns for an old flame.

Sad But Hopeful

Emotional piano-led track. Sparse piano intro, joined by melancholy orchestral strings. String swell, subtle drums and a rhythmic piano motif, growing in confidence and strength. Slowly building, dialogue between strings and piano. Effects-laden piano gives a cold electronic edge. Reflective, yearning and questioning, would suit a TV/Doc sequence of high emotional intensity or a pensive moment on film.
