Acoustic guitar, piano and ethereal pads. Reflective, dreamy, melancholic and hazey. Available with or without 'oooh' type vocal.

A very emotional and sweeping, grand, epic composition featuring orchestra, choir and a live performed solo soprano vocal. This track starts quietly and then keeps growing towards a climax, until finishing with a haunting afterthought. A track full of amazement, wonderment, awe and beauty. Features actual live performed orchestral instruments, combined with samples. The solo vocalist is partly reversed, and with parts interchanging in an odd way, to create a foreign, exotic, almost alien feel to it. Haunting and beautiful. [Tempo: Slow / 68 BPM]

A slow paced, dark theme track with cold piano and static noise elements.

This track will work well for scenes of separation, depression, dark times etc. Also works in CSI investigation or crime scene / undercover etc. [Tempo: Slow / 65 BPM]

Good for drama, love story, TV, film, family. [Tempo: Very slow, Slow / 84 BPM]

'Deep Secrets' is a collection of 7 music tracks primarily made for love story or love drama. The tracks share a common main melodic theme which is hinted in each of the 7 pieces, in various different settings, which make these compositions work well either separately, or together. This music carries a certain bittersweet feeling, of longing and despair, but also of hope and tenderness. The short piece 'Love Letters' hints at a forbidden love. The much longer 'Love Promise' tells of true love, with it's tender and sparse guitar and piano melodies which later lead into an all-out tear jerker complete with Irish flute and sweeping strings that climax at around 3:45. Then there is the much darker 'Bittersweet' that tells of danger and longing, whilst the short piece 'Mystery' sets the scene for personal reflection or a puzzle. Throughout the collection, the arrangement is dominated by piano, acoustic guitar, cello, Irish flute and string section, with occasional other instruments. [Tempo: Slow / 91 BPM]
