Martial Law

Orchestral build with electric guitar. Languid violins suspended, cello adds depth before choppy strings drive the track forward. Tension builds with relentless strings against shifting chords. Choppy strings joined by punchy electric guitar bursts building, punctuated by drums rolls, rolling back to exposed string stabs. Tense, nerve-wracking and threatening, perfect suspenseful music for an action movie scene or audacious TV drama finale.

A New Day

Uplifting piano track with orchestral strings and hints of shoegaze. Simple piano intro, building anticipation, orchestral strings swell in the background, plodding bass guitar percussion then soaring strings and quickening percussion build to a retro, shoegaze, slacker grunge section with orchestral strings. Elbow meets The Jesus and Mary Chain. Powerful yet chilled, romantic and hopeful, a dreamy, inspirational build to suit a closing scene on screen or a heartwarming advert.

Spiderwebs of Clouds

Melancholy, cinematic solo piano. Quick, soft piano phrases. An emotional melody enters above the undulating broken piano chords. Then a slow section of despondent block chords. Nostalgic, romantic and sad, slightly French, Amélie-style onscreen heartbreak or inner emotional turmoil.

Acoustic version available.

Golden Blue

Emotional EDM. Thoughtful synth piano intro à la PC Music, joined by cute synth melody, sound fx and fat synth chords. An anticipatory build leads to a Justice-like banger of a chorus. More bouncy synth and an arpeggiated build take us to a piano break, emotional synth and some female vocal samples before an acceleration to another punchy chorus. Sincere, cutesy and euphoric, with fun Calvin Harris vibes, perfect for an advert for a flashy, youth brand or for an energetic TV or Documentary sequence.

Wildlife

Euphoric electronica. Steady dance beats introduce the track with bubbling synth effects, building up with colourful synth chords to the bouncy melodic climax. A quiet mid-section, before anticipatory chords and driving beats lead to another banger of a chorus. High-energy, punchy and contemporary with a retro feel, reminiscent of Calvin Harris’s ‘This Is What You Came For’, with bold build ups and euphoric choruses, perfect for a glossy reality TV montage sequence – imagine the Love Islanders hitting the tiles – or a silly, fun advert.

Go Wit Tha Motion 2

Hip hop/ R’n’B instrumental. Single piano notes, high-pitched sound effects and a female vocal sample introduce a percussive synth melody. Restrained, sparse hip hop beats joined by high hat trap beats. Mid section with heavier, fuller dark beats and synth riff. Subtle, sparse and moody, perfect for a street scene on a TV drama or for a downbeat advert for urban clothing.

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.

Bad Evil

Suspenseful orchestral track. Foreboding sustained cello note intro before choppy violins join with a sense of urgency over soaring orchestral violins. Brazen brass blasts a slow salute before a tense and troubled violin shaky violin break. A dark fast-moving sea of choppy violins and clashing notes. The clouds part with a more triumphant section as the initial violin motif returns, seemingly victorious. Sombre, threatening and frightening,perfect action film music, for when the going gets tough and it looks like our heroes will suffer a crushing defeat. Instead, they hold on to power…for now.

Starjunk

Cute, euphoric EDM. Fat synth chords, laser beats, accelerating bouncy sound effects and a 5-4-3-2-1 countdown build anticipation before the drop into colourful, brain-candy EDM. Calvin Harris meets PC music, fat 80s synths and banging beats mixed with cutesy sound effects and saccharine synth happiness. Positive, summery and fun-filled, perfect for a summer advert, with young, cool people raving on a roof, or for feel-good Reality TV.

Tresero A Maggio

Percussive hangdrum-led track. Melodic hangdrum and driving percussion lead an atmospheric instrumental. More melodic handpan section before the close. Anticipatory, excited and shrouded in mystery, perfect for nature or travel docs, imagine catching glimpses of lush foliage from train speeding high on a mountain track.

Interlude is more sparse, without the driving rhythms at first, building momentum and rhythmic intensity toward the end of the track.
