Gentle acoustic guitar track. Solo acoustic guitar finger picking a mid-tempo, uplifting melody. Positive, hopeful, warm and comforting, an idyllic slice of Americana, sunrise over the corn fields, perfect for a wholesome advert or pensive film/tv moment.
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.
Gentle piano track with subtle orchestral strings. Repetitive piano motif builds, orchestral strings join, growing in intensity before a return to the lyrical solo piano. Warm, string swell rejoins, returns to solo piano. Lush, powerful and beautiful, would suit a pensive Film/TV/Doc scene encapsulating a sense of longing and nostalgia.
Minimalist-style solo piano track. Repetitive, undulating broken piano chords shifting slowly, extra bass notes added, changes to a polyrthythmic section before an emotional piano build section. Bright, hopeful and reflective, would suit an intense TV or film moment, heightened emotions and a vast beautiful landscape.
Jazz-pop instrumental. Drum roll, Rhodes piano intro, then a punchy brass riff. Steady drum and keyboard groove before the riff returns. Trumpet solo. Laid back, upbeat and positive, like a slightly cheesy theme tune to a jolly American sitcom.
Pulsating electronic track. Fat bassy synth, flashes of synth and electronic glitches start, joined by a regular, throbbing beat, more beats then layers of extra fat synth build the atmospheric tension. Tense, dark and foreboding, full of dark energy, imagine a tense action scene or a nail-biting TV moment.
Bouncy electronic track with vocal samples. ‘ID please’ vocal sample, male vocal harmony sample, 90s R ‘n’ B vibes, bouncy synth, 90s West Coast hip hop-style samples and the sound of a creaking bed…Sexy, breezy and summery, like Boyz II Men over an 80s synth, a 90s throwback perfect for sun-soaked adverts or TV scenes.
Intense acoustic guitar instrumental. Dark, pensive intro growing in speed and intricacy. Quick, repetitive strumming creates a drone effect. Hints of Spanish/Latin American guitar, Western movie soundtracks, as well as Middle-Eastern sounds. Suspenseful, tense and brooding, moving like a seductive dance, would suit onscreen tension on Film/TV or a sombre documentary about seedy goings-on and modern-day cowboys.
Atmospheric synth instrumental. Layers of echoing synth. Fat, warm, 80s reverb-laden sound. Sombre orchestral string effect, chiming piano and glacial beats gives a serious, driving feeling. Intriguing, mysterious and strange, Twin Peaks-style ambience crossed with Enya and the Crimewatch theme tune, would suit a dark TV drama or as tension-building background music to an eye-opening documentary.
Intriguing mid-tempo electronic track. Shaker and hand drum-style percussion, twinkling electronics, bright, glassy synths and sustained atmospheric synth chords unfold and expand. Sustained synth grows in intensity, organ style synth chords chime out, cutting through the dreamscape. Dense, magical, ethereal and futuristic with hints of tension and discord. Feels like a voyage of discovery in a utopian future world, or a personal journey of realisation.
