Calm background track to accompany all sorts of folky, farmy things. Agriculturally simple, yet effective at creating an ambience of life's gentle meanderings, it pushes forward through a lilting tempo and bouncy folk guitar, accentuated by various organic instruments for an earthy and at times, fantasy feel. Honest and quietly optimistic.
Spooky, skeletal track with a captivating atmosphere. Stripped to the bare bones, it's quite minimal, but uses the space to great effect, allowing the darkness to weave through the gaps. All the creepiest instruments are there: music box, glockenspiel, echoing percussion ... all leading and accompanying the playful strings, ghostly piano, lurking bassoon and carnival accordion for an unnerving experience of delicate, haunting beauty. Chills.
A gentle, Japanese inspired theme, designed purely for the earthy, meditative ambience it can give. Very airy with its use of bamboo flutes and very organic with its traditional percussion and chiming koto, it paints a picture of peaceful Asian culture and soothing thoughts. A great backdrop to anything needing gently rhythmic oriental soundscapes.
Glitchy and ambient future house track, leaning towards chill hop. Its minimalist approach gives it a strong technological feel and a cold, hollow vibe that is much more soundscape than beat driven accompaniment. Very spacious, synth based moods with contrasting high and low accentuations.
Acoustic medieval inspired track generating a fantasy vibe. It has a gentle 6/8 flow to give it a sense of dance and movement, and tries to keep its authenticity through the instrumentation; led by a (just about medieval) harpsichord, it's accompanied by simple beating percussion, harp, flute and maybe even a hint of hurdy-gurdy. If you're thinking of gentle fantasy folk from the Middle Ages, you're on the right track.
A short and elegant waltz, with a great sense of freedom and flow in the tempo as well as performance. Pizzicato strings, trilling woodwinds and light metal percussion build to a grand, triumphant resolution in this playful and upbeat piece of high class revelry.
