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.

The Militant Upcycle

Bloopy, psychedelic electronic track. Gentle, reverb-laden synth patterns, repeated, morphing into a noisier sound, growing more intense. A wash of fuzzy, atmospheric noise drowns out the synth melodies. Hints of My Bloody Valentine, Stereolab, Broadcast and Air, sepia-tinted electronics mingle with harsh noise in a satisfying contrast. Warm, gentle, searching and plodding to begin with, more intense, powerful and expansive as the track progresses. Perfect atmospheric film or documentary music, retro-futuristic and edgy, reminiscent of the Lost in Translation soundtrack.

The soundscape brightens with more melodic drones and reflective synth lines introduced. Thoughtful, introspective, yet vast and expansive, a world turning inside and out. Suitable for an intense, mind-expanding documentary, or for suspenseful or darkly dramatic TV moments.

All of Us

Gentle orchestral build. Sustained orchestral strings shimmer over sparse piano chords. Soothing, childlike melody introduced on glockenspiel-like keys, repeated.
