Kepler 22a

Uplifting orchestral string track. A hopeful swell of orchestral strings grows under a lush, warm string melody. A quiet, soothing electronic section before a percussive build to a euphoric string chorus with added layers of warmth and hope. Emotional, thoughtful and reassuring, a heartwarming track to suit a soothing and inspirational family advert, heightened TV Drama/Documentary scene.

Pangea

Melancholy harp with orchestral strings. Repeated harp motif, joined by a swell of orchestral strings. Melody doubled on piano while suspenseful strings flit above. Woodwind and harp interlude before a fuller rendition of the melody. Emotional, thoughtful, and slightly dark, a wintry, pastoral instrumental, suitable for TV/Film dramas set on the moors, or the troubled mind of the protagonist.

Peace of Mind

Cute EDM. Nintendo-style intro of magic synthesiser, joined by female vocal sample and laid back yet edgy beats. Shakers and a bright synth build take over, followed by a sweet, melodic synth part and the laid back beats. Repeats. Sparse beat break with wooping vocal samples to finish. Fun, chilled and positive, a happy trip to Koopa Island, relaxed EDM for a fashion advert or Vice-style documentary soundtrack.

Control

Trap instrumental. High-pitched synth intro and build to the beat drop. Trap beats and a tense melodic synth part. Dark beats and electronic samples throughout.

Giant

Uplifting pop/rock track with orchestral strings. Piano and acoustic guitar intro into hopeful acoustic chord progression, joined by piano chords. Chorus launches with growing electric and acoustic guitars, sustained, soaring orchestral strings and steady, plodding drums. Ascending chord progression signals hope and aspiration. Effects laden guitars give an edge before a quiet build to a rousing final chorus. Stirring, self-assured and optimistic, reminiscent of like Lonestar’s Amazed, perfect inspiring track for a wholesome advert or emotional, triumphant TV/Film scene.

The Enchantress of the North

Pastoral woodwind septet. Flute melodies interweave, while others playfully arpeggiate underneath and and provide a walking bass line, moving merrily as one unit. Jaunty, thoughtful and enchanting, dancing from a dewy meadow into the dark woodlands of a frightening fairytale, perfect for fantastical films and TV scenes, as well as ads or elevated reality TV: Houses and Gardens of Great Britain or suchlike.

Don’t Let Me Slide

Uplifting orchestral pop instrumental. Piano block chords intro with string swells. Beats join, followed by a chorus of bright piano chords and soaring orchestral strings with electric guitar ringing out above. Verse again, then upbeat chorus with extra electric guitar cutting through the orchestral bed. New section of acoustic, electric guitar and anticipatory drums before a return to the right-on guitar peals and full pop/rock chorus featuring slide guitar. Confident, hopeful and positive, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed classic American radio pop/rock. A perfect, slightly cheesy, accompaniment to an audacious advert or rousing TV/Documentary scene.

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.
