2FM062 || Determined Strings

Posted on Jan 21, 2021

2FM062 Determined Strings is a textural album built around rhythmic loops, featuring powerful, decisive strings, edgy synths, tense ticking percussion & motivational light drums. Written with game shows and reality TV in mind, moods include steely determination (“Down to Business”, “Turn Up The Heat”), energetic excitement (“Determined Focus”, “Boiling Point”) and resigned defeat (“Disappointing Result”, “Dashed Hopes”) Underscores, electronic and strings-only versions are available ready to use, with strings recorded across multiple stems. 60-second, 30-second, cliffhanger end and sting cutdowns, as well as clear loop points, allow for easy tailoring to picture. This album builds excitement in tense moments. With loop-based textures and a strong sense of anticipation, these tracks will be perfect for reality TV, game shows and documentaries, while strings-only versions have a more classical feel, and would suit period drama and historical programming. This album was composed by Bradley Farmer.
