Gritty atmospheric track. More soundscape than melody, it marries acoustic and synth sounds for a hybrid track reflecting tension, intrigue and dark suspense. Starting with a raw, biting cello and metronomic percussion, tension is introduced through high strings, background chorals and synth textures to create an unsettling, eerie vibe, eventually breaking into a fuller beat without letting up on the chills. Mean and moody.
A mysterious mix of classical and electronic styles to create a solemn, ambient vibe. A pulsing kick drum beat adds tension and movement under the suspense of light strings and an enchanting female vocal melody, enhanced by light brass, harp and vibraphone to blossom into the finale. Dreamily dark, sinisterly intriguing and a little bit mesmerizing.
A downbeat suspense theme. Brushed drums and a falling piano sequence create a sense of longing, added strings and pads help to build the intensity. Solo cello subtly creates extra melancholy and nostalgia.
Slow building, cinematic orchestral piece. Immediately dramatic and intense, through single repeated piano notes and suspenseful violin harmonics, there's an ethnic edge in the instrumentation merging with strings and oboe as the piece turns darker with rich bass and dissonant textures. Ambient and brooding throughout with a tragic, heroic feel to the second half due to a sweeping string and brass melody accompanied by added timpani and rhythm, it remains a calm yet slightly unsettling piece with outstanding tension.
Calmly paced orchestral track featuring metronomic piano. Using muted strings and tremolo articulations to generate tension and intensity, the pulsing regularity of the simple piano theme plays with the long, sweeping violin and cello lines to generate a beautiful elegance, evoking drama, suspense and a sense of regret. Cinematically stylish and full of heartfelt emotion.
Orchestral (hybrid) track, featuring piano, strings, brass and FX. A lulling, yet dissonant piano theme takes centre stage, accompanied by legato violins and various chilling percussive effects to a sharp climax, before returning to the more sedate, yet unsettling motif. Edgy and intense, with an unresolved ending.
