Dramedy – 1:08 (starts at 0:00)
Upbeat comedic piece with a jazzy and percussive feel.
If you want to achieve a slinky, suburban and cinematic atmosphere in your project reminiscent of works like American Beauty, Ghost World, Desperate Housewives and Six Feet Under, this upbeat comedic piece will make a great accompaniment to your video. Lighthearted and jovial scenes need jazzy, percussive and lighthearted music such as this. Starting with a repeating marimba pattern, a percussive piano part soon joins the fray, giving a levity and punchiness to the texture that evokes the upbeat side of Thomas Newman and other similar American composers. This falls into the dramedy aesthetic- clever, witty comedy with dramatic elements.
Quirky – 0:37 (starts at 1:09)
Quirky and fun instrumental piece evoking chaotic and comedic scenes.
Starting with a slow and dreamy piano theme, the music picks up pace when frantic marcato strings join the fray, racing to a sudden finish in a lighthearted and jovial way. If you want a track reminiscent of composers such as Danny Elfman and his TV themes as The Simpsons, Desperate Housewives and so on, this amusing and authentic comedy- or dramedy- piece is the right choice and will make a powerful accompaniment to your project.
Brazil – 2:08 (starts at 1:46)
Percussive, upbeat Brazilian music with a festive feel.
Following on from the 2016 Olympics and the rise of reggaeton and other South American styles of music, a Brazilian influenced style of music is very much in demand at the moment. This Brazilian party tune uses a samba rhythm and layers of complex, upbeat percussion including congas, cajon and clave. With an intricate and uplifting rhythm, a jazzy chord progression and lyrical trumpet line, this piece will make the perfect addition to any project requiring a Brazilian (or Cuban / South American) flavour.
Lighthearted – 1:40 (starts at 3:54)
Happy, upbeat instrumental groove with a sense of fun and positivity..
Starting with syncopated acoustic guitar, a shuffling drumbeat and a jazzy bass line, the piece expands to incorporate brass and piano, all while evoking a sense of lighthearted optimism that will resonate strongly with your audience base. Whether you’re demonstrating a new product, broadcasting your new holiday photos, accompanying a comedic scene or introducing a new show, this flexible, uplifting piece has all the entertainment value and rhythmic vitality that you need to get the momentum going and inspire your audiences in an understated, quirky way.
