This hypnotic, ambient, minimalist and energetic piece features movement under an ostinato, with surprising resolutions and contemporary ambience. Its minimalist structure lends itself to easy editing and can be cut anywhere and reassembled. It’s kaleidoscopic, frenetic, but also majestic.

Inspired by a common rock progression, this tune speaks to the grownup in the rock’n’roller. It’s comforting and familiar, a happy tune, yet upscale and elegant despite its rock’n’roll roots. It’s a piece for String Quintet, and straddles the New Acoustic genre and Baroque.

This happy baroque track features strings playing pizzicato, written to a familiar rock progression. The style borders on New Acoustic or NuGrass, but without a strong cultural reference. It’s a safe and universal track with an upbeat feeling.
