Thoughtful orchestral string track. String intro like a Purcell opera, gives way to warm, tinkling piano with sensitive string accompaniment, lush and lyrical with a slightly Baroque feel, piano acting as walking bass. Marimba arpeggios join later, adding an off-kilter, unexpected further element to the mix. Intriguing and hopeful yet conflicted, a steady piece of music,gliding through genres. Would suit a TV/Film drama, documentary or advert conjuring a regal past with a hint of eccentricity.
Dreamy multi-instrumental track. Gentle, swaying, looped piano motif, joined by bright, pealing keys, hypnotic and cyclical. Moves to a jazz keyboard sound, joined by violin and cello sharing fragments of melody. High register violin and ascending keys drive the melody to an anticipatory hight point. A new section: soft, tender Satie-like chordal piano, joined by breathy sustained strings. A soothing variation on the original motif to finish. Romantic, thoughtful and other-worldly,a sonic dream, astral wanderings with one foot in the 20th century. Would suit a reflective TV scene or a very beautiful documentary.
Electronic synth track. Breezy synth intro with chunky tropical beats underneath. Chilled beats and a laid back lounge vibe. Synth build to a funkier section, more prominent funk bass guitar and catchy synth motif. Fresh, colourful and bright, synth sunshine, calming background music in a luxury elevator or lounging in a flashy spa. “Been around the world and ay-ay-ay…” Lisa Stansfield lounging in early 90s ibiza, perfect for smooth and cheesy adverts and similar TV.
Pastoral folk on solo acoustic guitar. Quiet, thoughtful chordal motifs and finger-picking guitar. Moving from minor to major like the sun breaking through the clouds. Gentle, introspective and tentative, yet hopeful, perfect for a spare, downbeat TV/Doc sequence or a relaxed advert.
Spooky atmospheric electronics. Dark soundscape, ambient noise like a distant vehicle, A flurry of electronics and threatening horn-like sustained blasts come and go like scurrying creatures. Alien-like samples build the tension further. Frightening, horrifying and chilling, the sound of an invasion of planet earth by intergalactic rat aliens, for troubling Docs and comedically freaky TV.
Orchestral thriller. Tense, sustained orchestral strings, with quirky orchestral percussion. Repeated suspenseful violin motif joins on top, followed by mysterious walking piano notes. Determined plucked strings and higher register violin take things up a notch. Rumbling, stomping percussion to a cacophonous, threatening section with more prominent piano and horn blasts. Dark, foreboding and full of anticipation, perfect for a commercial of epic proportions, a faux-epic pastiche, or dramatic TV/Doc scenes showcasing the brutal force of Mother Nature.
Commercial electronic pop track. Bouncy fat synth intro interspersed with bleepy synths and a chugging rhythmic beat base. Melodic synth section over the beats. Flute-like samples added. Sparse synth break, opens up to a bright, summery, warm synth section. Rhythmic section before dramatic key change, taking things up a notch to reach dizzying heights. Positive, happy and contemporary, like a Katy Perry instrumental. Now That’s What I Call Summer- slightly trashy holiday pop. Would suit reality TV or carefree, family adverts.
Ambient downbeat electronica. Soft harp-like synth arpeggio to begin, sparse synth melody joins, along with atmospheric sound effects, rattling, deep, sustained synth and tentative hand drums. Cowbell-like insistent beat introduced over the melody. Tense, moody and dark, reminiscent of Wild Beasts during their reflective moments, like Four Tet, the build up section of an electro banger, or like trap without the trap beat. Would suit a documentary or film scene loaded with anticipation, uncertainty and suspicion.
Atmospheric new age-style instrumental. Glistening, shimmering drums and effects-laden electric guitars with steel pan drums conjure a magical realm. Becomes slightly more sombre but still sparkles with hope. Gentle, calming and ambient, a spacey meditation, prefect for ethereal advert or reflective TV/Film/Doc scenes.
Intricate guitar instrumental. Plucked acoustic guitar lines interwoven. Electric guitar with some reverb and delay effects picks out a melody on top. Electric guitar grows more prominent, sounding like an instrumental Warpaint, while the acoustic lines grow stronger and more intricate. The interplay of guitar lines creates a chiming effect. Atmospheric, melancholy and enveloping, a melancholy, hypnotic sound world, perfect for tense TV/Film/Doc moments in unfamiliar environments.
