Fast paced, energetic jazz track. With its fleet-footed, almost nervous, intensity thanks to the drums and double bass, this light track also features strong off-beat accents and syncopation to generate an urgent sense of movement. Piano and flute feature heavily in the leads and delicate high strings create suspense - all combining to achieve a sophisticated mood of unresolved tension.
The title says 'News', but in truth, it's more than that. It certainly has a current affairs/political theme running through it, with its grand orchestral hits, tension-building ascensions, string ostinato, tremolo, percussive chimes and brass swells, but capturing such a cinematic dynamic opens it up to many other uses where a time-led intensity is required. Think James Bond on a deadline.
A tense and anxious cinematic synth sequence. Building from a pulsing bass start, and adding dramatic percussive hits and impacts, the slow crescendo of a riser and dissonant cluster signals the impending climax and subsequent unexpected cutoff. Full of suspense and nervous energy for those stressful situations.
Downtempo post-rock track with a cinematic/TV feel. Gently building tension through layering themes, starting with simple piano and adding textures, bass, drums and electric guitar, it never gets overly dramatic, instead choosing a subtler psychological intensity to evoke its message of cool, calculated and deliberate determination.
Dramatic and powerful track, full of cinematic tension. To start, it's a soft piano creating an ambient, pensive mood, helped by solo cello and violin lines, by the end it's a brooding, dark drama piece backed by metronomic percussion, string shorts and rich brass for a full and dynamic sense of evolving dilemma and unravelling denouement.
