DESCRIPTIONS OF TRACKS (short descriptions also available in Spanish):

One hour before. The most interesting track of the collection. A slow sad and tragic song with a soothing melody of piano and violins in the background. Contains some uplifting moments, but generally relaxed, and wistful.

Forgotten dream. A somber solo sad piano featuring a repeated melodic tone with following long and lingering notes of cellos. It ends with a gradual fading of emotion. Calming, dark, and mournful.

Broken Heart. Slow tempo piano instrumental track with sad and tragic tone. Soft rhythm complemented by the bright melody in the upper notes of the piano. A good choice as a background for a documentary tragedy film.

I need to tell you. The sad, nostalgic, and little tragic musical composition was written using Steinway K Upright classical piano sound. The developed melody line follows during the track with some of the variations.

Feeling so empty. These gentle and unhurried chords of the piano create a deep feeling of sadness and nostalgia. Also, the track is a little bit tragic and very emotional.

With eyes closed. Light and at the same time sad piano composition. The first part is the most romantic, while the second half contains some tragic notes.

On the Way. Th? song was originally conceived as a piano solo. During the selection of the final variant, I opted for the chamber version, where I also have violins and a cello. The melody has a pronounced sad and tragic character.

Someone should do is a slow piano track, full of the mood of nostalgia and sadness. The first part of the composition is a piano solo, which in the middle is complemented by violoncello and violins.

Still here. This is a typical “cinematic mix” that is mournful and a little sharper than other compositions. The track is dramatic and very dynamic; slow in the beginning and towards the end the song is tender and soft, but it is punctuated by powerful changes with hard and aggressive distorted guitar. This song could work well to depict despair, and the blast of emotions.

It cannot be found. Slow piano composition with a dynamic introductory part. The song creates a sad and perhaps even tragic mood. A simple and memorable melody develops against the backdrop of a leisurely arpeggio. Repeating entry elements in the final part forms a feeling of incompleteness and expectations for further development.

Glazed Universe. This track is a little closer to a traditional pop ballad but in general produced in a cinematic style. Troubling and intensive, the cellos and violins pull from the low registers, creating a full and saturated heavy sound. Meandering between piano pulse and arduous pulls of distorted guitar, the music has a strong dramatic minor key with sparks of emotion in the middle part.

Charmin life. Elegant, light, and rising track, has the simple touching and light melody of the piano, with a feeling of pensive restraint. It is a beautiful background track to the close of a drama, documentary, or romantic film.

When hope disappears. This tragic and sad background music for movies may be used for home production videos, documentaries, and any other video projects. The base of the track is a short rhythmic phrase repeated piano. The slow melody of violins makes the track really dark, giving the impression of hopelessness and melancholy.

Before you come. Sad and tragic instrumental composition with a memorable piano theme. When performing orchestration, both traditional musical instruments and modern synthesizers were used.

Two rainy weeks. Soft and unhurried piano chords sound in unison with breathing and heartbeat. The cello adds smoothness and space to the picture, while the accented phrases of the violin expand the dynamics and emotional component of the composition.

I just know. This piano solo track creating a sad and slightly nostalgic impression. Music has small variations in tempo making it more lively.

I Close The Door. A slow lyrical piano track filled with feelings of sadness, nostalgia, and dreaminess. Unpretentious melody and the soft sound of chords in the middle register.

You leave it here. A sad or even tragic story that unhurried piano chords are trying to convey to us. As with most of my compositions, I try to use dynamic and tempo variations so that the song carries the most emotional message.

Still here (Piano Solo). This is the alternative solo piano version of the song “Still Here”. The main melody has been preserved, but the rhythmic part has been slightly changed to adapt the song to the solo performance.

Revival. Calming, sad, and nostalgic. This background track can set you way back in time almost from the first seconds. Several more intensive and slower sections are available during this song. The track starts calming, continues a little bit encouraging, and ends quiet and slow.

The spirit of mine. A slow and sad thing with a beautiful and developed melody played in the middle and higher registers. The track is most saturated with the tonal variations of the main melody. It leaves a little motivating and reassuring mood in the middle, relaxing, and soothing to the end.

Gaia. This sad and tragic royalty-free background music track could be used as an accompaniment to an art-house film or a slow dance. A grooving piano featuring cello, violins, and low staccato strings in the middle part. A somber orchestral sting creates a gentle rising motion and wistful mood.
