Advertising Showreel


and then in close for the pack shot...


Whether the on-screen/on-radio talent is a grizzled cop with emotional intimacy issues or a tin of paint with emulsional intricacy issues - we figure our role remains the same, to encourage belief in, and engagement with, the story that is being told.

Brands have as much right to a personality as anyone else, and it's our job to help flesh it out - whatever the media. In reality most of the showreels on this site contain music relevant to advertisers, but here is a small selection that covers many of the message bases.

1 Septiq [2:20] - David Gosnell Septiq [2:20] David Gosnell Mixed Percussion / Acoustic / Electric Ensemble
Quirky ensemble piece in 7/4 with an upbeat groove. Edgy romantic or black comedy or children's fantasy drama. Fun, happy and festive with a twist. Lots of unusual percussion, driven by bongo/conga rhythm and jazz bass. Cool vibe for ads, corporate or film/tv.
2 Il Cuoco in Francia [1:39] - David Gosnell Il Cuoco in Francia [1:39] David Gosnell Orchestra, Mandolin, Solo VIolin
Imagine yourself walking or driving in the Italian countryside, pausing at a local market to buy fresh food and vegetables before settling down back at your villa to watch the sunset. Perfect for advertising that car driving through deserted scenery or a travel programme - with space for voice-over.
3 Updraft [2:50]  - David Gosnell Updraft [2:50] David Gosnell Guitars, Drum,s Mandolin Piano String Quartet
Starts with a simple piano theme joined in turn by Mandolin, acoustic guitar, drums and syncopated string quartet, building into a confident optimistic high energy rock track. A build repeat and final fade offer much opportunity to edit for Corporate, TV, Film, Sports, Website, Documentary or Drama
4 Twinkle Toes [1:06]  - David Gosnell Twinkle Toes [1:06] David Gosnell Classical Orchestra, Celesta Solo
The little elves are hard at work in the toy workshop and the fairies flit around the flowers adding the morning dew. A solo celesta weaves a 'sugar plum fairy' dance above a string and woodwind, creating a magical and ethereal atmosphere. Perfect for Christmas, fairy tales or reality tv make-overs!
5 Blessed Continuity [1:54] - David Gosnell Blessed Continuity [1:54] David Gosnell Piano, Chamber Orchestra
Whatever grand and dramatic events play out on the main stage, everywhere else, life carries on as normal. This track celebrates the continuity in everyday activities, sometimes happy, sometimes routine, sometimes unusual - but always present.
6 Positively Fabulous [02:04] - David Gosnell Positively Fabulous [02:04] David Gosnell Ukulele, glockenspiel, kalimba, jazz bass, drums, finger clicks, claps, piano, organ, bass, guitar.
You're bouncing down the street with a spring in your step, the birds sing, passers-by smile and everything is right with the world. An upbeat track, contemporary, but with a hint of the '60s!
7 Bossa Man [1:51] - David Gosnell Bossa Man [1:51] David Gosnell Strings, Latin Percussion, Saxophones, Alto Flute, Oud, Harpsichord, Santoor, Byeon, Piano, Marimba
He's the cool guy with the slicked hair who, no matter what obstacles are placed in his way, used his suave charm and slick moves to get the girl and win the day. His cool and his look have a retro feel, as does this track with Latin influences and a touch of 50's/60's smooth. Adding Harpsichord, Oud, Santoor, Byeon and Marimba means the outcome will be achieved with a little added quirk!
8 Marimbum Pizzicatus [1:40] - David Gosnell Marimbum Pizzicatus [1:40] David Gosnell Marimba, Strings, Piano, Latin Percussion, Woodwind, Sound Design
It is a prime directive of International Law that music for Dramedy must feature Marimba, Pizzicato strings and optionally piano. As a law abiding citizen, I have no choice but to comply. There are curious goings on in suburbia, where the white picket fence is decorated by a corpse - waiting to be reburied for fear of inadvertant discovery. And you wouldn't believe the series of events which lead to the corpse's demise in the first place. Who'd have thought a fish tank could be so hazardous?
9 Oversized Shoes [1:18] - David Gosnell Oversized Shoes [1:18] David Gosnell Saxophones, Strings, Woodwind, Drum Kit, Harp
The tears of a clown. Yes a cliché, I know, but as Krusty goes about his antics entertaining the little children, he hides a secret pain that only the most perceptive can see. The less perceptive will of course notice the Jack Daniels empties on the back seat of his car.
10 Trailicus Maximus - David Gosnell Trailicus Maximus David Gosnell Classical Orchestra and pseudo-Latin Vomiting Choir
An archetypal trailer track for the overly muscled sword-wielding type. Complete with oversized brass, pseudo-Latin-vomiting choir, a few anvils and liberal pressing of the Kabooom! button.
