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)

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

And on my World (and Aerial) pages:

"A Thousand Exotic Places" (Looping)

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!

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.

Have a good week!

Btw I've also been expanding my texture images library to include cartoony 2D-style seamless images in addition to my realistic ones. They are on my TXR pages. Free to use (as always) with attribution.

Enjoy the rest of your week!

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!

More music is coming on Wednesday...keep being creative and have a good week!

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!
