Hi Everyone,

To streamline my site a bit, I’ve eliminated the gigantic text block under the header image that showed all the pages on the site. Instead, links to all the pages on the site are on the right side of every page, listed under MUSIC, SOUND FX and IMAGES… (scroll down.) Simply click on the name of any page to navigate to that page. Then scroll down. The links appear at the right side of every page so that you can quickly navigate from any page to any other page on the site.

That said, I have some new free music tracks ready for everyone:

"Cumulonimbus"
on my Nature/Science 3 page:
http://soundimage.org/nature-science-3/


"Far Away Puzzle Places"
on my Puzzle Music 3 page:
http://soundimage.org/puzzle-music-3/


and "Alley Chase"
on my Sci-Fi 7 page
http://soundimage.org/sci-fi-7/



Enjoy and have a good weekend!

Some of these tracks are excellent and your productivity is amazing. I used a number of them in a project I did recently (with prominent attribution). May well be talking to you soon about custom work.

Thanks for making this available to all of us!

Hi Everyone,

This week's new free tracks are a lot of fun. We have: 

"THE ARCADE SPACEMAN" – (Looping) – In the year 20 billion! …Okay, maybe 1982. …Anyhow, this might be fun in a space game or app.
It lives on my Chiptunes 2 page:
https://soundimage.org/chiptunes-2/

"OVER THE POLAR MOUNTAIN" – (Looping) – The child dreams of the tiny train, under icy moonlight, making its way across the great polar North. It struggles up the enormous mountain, finally reaches the top and then chugs down the other side.

"OF DREAMS AND GAMES" – (Looping) – Might sound nice under the intro screens for a mystical RPG or fantasy-based game.
Both are on my Fantasy 8 page:
https://soundimage.org/fantasy-8/

"THE PLASTERED PELICAN BAR AND GRILLE" – Filled with an assortment of rowdy birds, this dockside bar is quite a spectacle on Friday nights. Come to think of it, it’s a spectacle on any night.
The wild festivities are on my Funny 5 page:
https://soundimage.org/funny-5/

"BOT BUILDERS" – (Looping) – Creating cities of tomorrow?
on my Technology 2 page:
https://soundimage.org/technology-2/

As always, if anyone is interested in checking out some of the projects I've custom scored, you can find a brief list here with links: 
https://soundimage.org/custom-work/

Enjoy!

https://soundimage.org/fantasywonder/

On my Sci-Fi 7 page:

I haven't said this in a while, so I'd like to send out a heartfelt thank you to the kind folks who have shown support and donated to my efforts. Not only are your donations helping to pay for the site, but they are also helping to pay for a new synthesizer that will enable me to explore and create music for you in lots of new styles...(at least for me)...like:

Rock
Pop / Retro Pop
R&B
Country
Jazz
Latin
Classical
Folk
Holiday
and lots more.

One of the most gratifying things for me is when people write and tell me that one of my tracks inspired them to create a new game, film or other work of their own. I hope that some of these new musical styles will help you to expand the boundaries of your creativity! 

As I explore and familiarize myself with this new synth, I'm also continuing my project to create looping versions of my existing tracks...I hope they are helpful, especially for my game / VN developer friends as well as my drone pilot friends.

That said, here are this week's new free tracks:

On my Action page:

"SELF DESTRUCT SEQUENCE" (Looping)
https://soundimage.org/action/


Two new tracks on my Aerial/Drone page:

"CARIBBEAN SKIES" – (Looping)  and
"SOARING OVER THE HEARTLAND" (Looping)
https://soundimage.org/aerial-drone/


On my City/Urban page we have:

"WINTER ALLEYS" (Looping) and
"THE STREET MUSICIAN" (Looping)
https://soundimage.org/city-urban/


And on my Techno page:

"MAYHEM" (Looping)
https://soundimage.org/dance-techno/


Keep being creative!

Happy October!

Continuing my mission to provide looping versions of every track on my site, here are this week's new free tracks:

On my Drama page:

"PULLING AWAY" (Looping) - Perhaps from a small-town bus station on a dreary day, leaving someone behind.
https://soundimage.org/drama/


On my Fantasy page:

"GENTLE CLOSURE" – (Looping) - Little ending piece. Might work in a game or animation.
https://soundimage.org/fantasywonder/


On my Funny/Quirky/Weird page:

"SNEAKY CAT" (Looping) - A single bassoon conveys a quiet humor.
https://soundimage.org/funnyquirky/


On my History page:

"THE GIANT GATES OPEN" (Looping) - Would you go in? I’m not sure that I would. Anyhow, this might be a nice intro piece for an ancient city in a documentary or a game.
https://soundimage.org/ancient/


And on my Horror/Surreal page:

"AFTER THE INVASION" (Looping) - An intense “aftermath” kind of track. Kind of disturbing, actually…well, at least to me.
https://soundimage.org/horrorsurreal/


I hope some of them are helpful!

Hi everyone,

We're half way through October...and half way to Halloween...so we have:

On my Funny/Quirky/Weird page:

"Ghoulish Fun" (Looping) - Good for Halloween or a Halloween themed piece.

https://soundimage.org/funnyquirky/

Here's a piece in the spirit of a bad '70s cop show. It makes me itchy for some reason:

"Side Burn Squad" (Looping)

https://soundimage.org/funnyquirky/


Two new tracks are ready on my Fantasy page:


"Our Mountain v003" (Looping) - An expanded version of the original that might work in an RPG under opening titles or perhaps somewhere else.


"Winding Down" (Looping) - Another ending piece, perhaps for a game or animation.


https://soundimage.org/fantasywonder/


And two tracks on my Aerial/Drone page:


"Over a Mysterious Island" (Looping) - What waits for you below? Another track that might sound nice in a drone video…or perhaps a video about an exotic travel destination.


"Reaching Altitude" (Looping) - I would love to hear this in a drone video…(I’m a huge fan of those.) But might work in a travel video as well.


https://soundimage.org/aerial-drone/


Have a good week!

Greetings,

This week's brand new free tracks are:

On my City/Urban page:

"A Walk Through the City" (Looping)
"Inner City" (Looping)
https://soundimage.org/city-urban/

On my Dark/Ominous page, two pieces that I think sound pretty intense:

"Arrival" (Looping)
"Secret Tunnels" (Looping)

https://soundimage.org/dark-ominous/

And on my World (and Aerial) pages:

"A Thousand Exotic Places" (Looping)
"Ancient Waters" (Looping)

https://soundimage.org/world/
https://soundimage.org/aerial-drone/


With Halloween coming up, I think I'll try to concentrate on my Dark/Ominous pages as well as my Horror/Surreal page. I try very hard to release one new track each day and I post them on my Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages as I publish them (if anyone is interested.)


Enjoy!
