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.
Wistfully floating into the ether, this short cinematic track beautifully glides between soft angelic voices and shimmering strings for a soothingly uplifting and pensive feel that has a deeply tragic undertone. Melancholic yet optimistic at the same time, it makes great use of the natural qualities of the cellos and ethnic woodwinds to paint its heavenly picture of light and dark.
Latin America welcomes a breath from the Middle East in this pop/rock fusion track. High energy with a great groove, Arabic influenced melodies on strings and guitars play with cooler South American keyboard and guitar themes, each having their moment to shine whilst maintaining that percussive rock feel. Upbeat and ready to party from start to finish, it's sensual, animated and highly charged in the coolest of World grooves.
