A pack of four tracks, that vary in style but not in emotion. They all express joy and happiness in a slightly different way (as described below). Sometimes sentimental, sometimes effervescent, but always joyful.
Two of the tracks in this pack (Romantic Theme and Jaunty Theme) are performed by a LIVE orchestra.
Joy Of Creation 2:49
An uplifting track that is influenced by so many different cultures and genres, including film music, Pacific tribal music, Carribean music and South African music.
I wanted to write something that expressed what it feels like to ‘create’ something, be it a drawing, a piece of music, or watching a seed that grows into a plant. Many of the instruments in this track are ‘found’ instruments, that is instruments which are made out of objects that we see in everyday life. These include PVC pipes (which are tuned), and random kitchen objects to create some of the percussive backgrounds.
Other instruments include the bansuri (a bamboo flute from India) and a smaller bamboo flute from Japan which – when played in a certain way – makes remarkable overtones. This of course is backed by the tribal voices and light orchestral string accompaniment that lie behind this track throughout.
The track itself opens with a female vocal chant – almost like a ‘call’ to pay attention. This is followed by a brief introduction with various percussion instruments and a string ostinato. The main hook or riff of the piece, played by a combination of marimba and xylophone enters at 0:26 in the piece. This is an idea that will be stated many times over. This idea continues until 1:05 – gradually growing and growing all the time.
At 1:05 there is a breakdown in the music where the strings play a mroe sustained accompaniment, while the bansuri plays a lyrical melody. This long section gradually works its way into something more active and dramatic at 1:43. The chanting then returns and gradually builds to 2:04.
At 2:04 the main idea is restated with a children’s choir in the background, and numerous additional instruments playing the melody. This idea is repeated until the very end as it gradually grows and grows to bring the piece to an epic close.
I hope you can find this track useful. While it draws on many influences, I wanted to write something that expresses joy, and I hope the organic and lively nature of this track fulfils that.
An orchestral piece that harks back to the Golden Age of Hollywood with sweeping strings and a strong melody. There’s not much more that needs to be said. This is epic but in a different, more old-fashioned and traditional sense. At its core, it is meant to tug at the heart-strings without becoming overwrought. I hope you enjoy it.
An uplifting theme with a very strong and highly identifiable melody. Makes use of the full orchestra. The whole song is very light and playful, it never really gets heavy at any point. The tune itself is played mostly in the woodwind, though on occasion it shifts to the trumpet.
For a short, but sweet orchestral ditty, you can’t go wrong with this track!
A Christmas song produced in an epic film score / trailer-esque style. There is nothing subtle about this, but it is guaranteed to make the receiver smile. There is nothing like a full orchestra playing Christmas songs, and produced with a bit of over the top Hollywood pizzaz!
The piece closes with a soft but warm-hearted end twinkling away on a celesta, a wonderful instrument that really captures the spirit of Christmas.
Perfect for e-Christmas Cards, Christmas photo presentations, Christmas product launches, Christmas thankyou video messages, and multiple Christmas purposes.
Enjoy this pack!
