Greetings Earthlings!

This week’s new free tracks are:

On my Sci-Fi 8 page: page:

STRANGE LANDS – (Looping) – Perhaps on an alien world?

On my Fantasy 9 page:

OF OTHER WORLDS - Here’s a dreamy, far away sounding piece that might work under the intro screens of a game…or perhaps something else.

QUIRKY MAGIC – (Looping) – Perhaps for casting spells in an RPG?

I try very hard to create and upload at least one new free piece of game art each day. Feel free to friend me on Facebook to get daily updates in your news feed. My page is here:

Finally, if you need some affordable custom work created (music, sound effects, images, etc.,) feel free to email me. My email address is here:

Hey guys,

Hey guys,

I’m a bit under the weather, but I did manage to get a couple of new tracks done:

On my Dark/Ominous 2 page:

MIDNIGHT FOG – (Looping) – What creeps though the fog? This track might go well with my other one, “Midnight Mist.”

On my Nature/Science 3 page:

DEEP SKY OBJECTS – They shimmer silently in the night sky like ancient jewels. Most can only be seen with a telescope. The light passing through my lens and into my eye left these objects long before humans walked the Earth. Perspective is humbling.

Like all of my music, they are completely free to use with attribution.

Greetings everyone,

New free music is ready for you here:

On my Fantasy 8 page:

On my Fantasy 9 page:

And on my Sci-Fi 8 page:

100% free to use with attribution.

**If you find my music helpful, please consider making a donation to my website. The synthesizers I use to create the music and sounds that I share with everyone are very expensive…so expensive, in fact, that I have to make monthly payments on them…and donations really help me a lot to pay for them. Thanks in advance…and please feel free to share your projects…I love to see how creative people are using my work!

100% free to use with attribution.

More cool new music tracks are on their way later in the week.

See you then!

On my Sci-Fi 7 page:

Glad they are helpful!

I’ve decided to begin expanding the sound effects section of my website (which desperately needs it) so if anyone has any requests, just let me know.

One request that I received on social media is for various coin sounds, so here’s a brand new page devoted to that:

SFX - Coins

As always, feel free to edit as needed.

Hey guys,

More fantasy texture images await you…free as always to use with attribution.


They’re pretty wild….I’d be really interested to see how someone puts these to use!


Some nasty looking stuff here…blech!


These grungy metal textures might be useful for sci-fi or urban-themed projects.

Btw, I’ve begun my quest to expand the free sound effects section of my website. Any requests?

Hi everyone,

Here’s a brand new track on my puzzle music 4 page:

“ELECTRIC RAINDROPS” – (Looping) – Perhaps for a quiet, methodical puzzle with a hint of mystery (and quirkiness.)

Continuing to build up the ambience section of my site…(which is in dire need)… here are some more new ambiences on my AMB - Sci-Fi Ambience page:

“MIDNIGHT CYBER STREETS” – For a creepy, deserted nighttime situation perhaps.

“FAILING GRID” – Perhaps in a dystopic cyber world.

As always, if you happen to use my work in your project, send me a link…I’d love to see it!

Daily updates are here as I release new assets:
