Greetings!
I have some new free tracks in the Fantasy genre as well as Chiptunes:
“ETHEREA” – If only places like this actually existed. Anyhow, this might sound nice in a fantasy game, visual novel or perhaps something else.
soundimage.org/fantasy-8
“ARCADE SPACE ADVENTURES” – For just a quarter…those were the days…(I’ve been getting nostalgic for coin-op games.) Anyhow, I did this track “on the fly”…it might be fun in a 2D retro game of some kind. Enjoy!
soundimage.org/chiptunes-3
“FUNKY PIXELTOWN” – Overflowing with characters who are just too cool for words…(at least in their own minds.)
soundimage.org/chiptunes-3
Hope you’re having a good week!

Hey guys,

Here are this week’s new tracks. Free to use with attribution. Enjoy!

8-BIT ANTICS – Maybe for a cute retro-2D game? Or something else?
https://soundimage.org/chiptunes-3/

THE ANT HILL GANG SADDLES UP AGAIN – And they’re off…the most incompetent gang to ever (attempt to) ride across the west. They’ll probably get lost. Anyhow, this might be fun in a comedic western-themed piece.
https://soundimage.org/funny-6/

TECHNO RANDOMNESS – Unlike many of my tracks that are built layer by layer, this one was done “live” (in real-time) by improvising with two of my synths at the same time. Perhaps useful in some kind of wacky technology-based puzzle game?
https://soundimage.org/puzzle-music-4/

DYSTOPIAN SUNSET – Perched atop a mile-high structure, the machine-being stares out over the shimmering grid, wondering what the night will bring.
https://soundimage.org/sci-fi-7/

Greetings,

Here are this week’s new tracks. Free to use with attribution:

MAGICAL BACKSTORY – (Looping) – This might sound nice under the menus, backstory, etc., in a mystical fantasy game, RPG or maybe a visual novel.

https://soundimage.org/fantasy-8/

DRIFTING AWAY IN PUZZLE LAND – (Looping) – Sometimes…(actually lots of times)…I wish I could do just that. Anyhow, this is a variation of one of my other themes.

https://soundimage.org/puzzle-music-4/

FUTURE FUNK – (Looping) – Here’s a grungy looping piece with a mechanical feel and a funky vibe that might sound cool in a sci-fi game of some kind.

https://soundimage.org/dance-techno/

Enjoy!

Happy May!

Here are this week’s brand new music tracks. Free as always to use with attribution:

On my City/Urban 2 page, we have:

SAFE CRACKING – (Standard and Looping) – This piece might be fun in a crime-based game or film. (2:19)
https://soundimage.org/city-urban-2/

On my Puzzle Music 4 page:

GAME WORLD BUILDERS – (Looping) – Here’s a track that’s kind of mechanical sounding and dreamy at the same time. Perhaps for a construction-based puzzle game? :)57)
https://soundimage.org/puzzle-music-4/

And on my Sci-Fi 7 page:

ENEMY INFILTRATION – (Looping) – This track has a grungy techno feel and might sound cool under interior battle scenes or other things. Maybe aboard a star cruiser? Or in an alien city? (1:32)
https://soundimage.org/sci-fi-7/

Enjoy!

Another super busy week…ugh…but I did manage to get a couple of new tracks done. Free as always to use with attribution:

On my Horror/Surreal page, we have:

CREEPY ACTION – (Looping) – This track might sound cool in a quick moving horror game…or perhaps something else that combines action with creepiness. It came out pretty well…if you need something like this, give it a try.
https://soundimage.org/horrorsurreal/


On my Puzzle Music 4 page:

CRYSTAL PUZZLES – (Looping) – This track might sound nice in, well, a puzzle game involving crystals….or perhaps other shimmering objects, light rays, etc. It has a techno feel to it as well. Should sound pretty cool under sound fx.
https://soundimage.org/puzzle-music-4/

Btw, if anyone happens to have kids (or know someone who does) I’ve created a learning series that teaches them environmental stewardship in a fun way through stories and characters. It was my first try at making films with a DSLR…(they can be very challenging to work with in the field)…but I think they came out pretty well. The organization I made them for was very happy with them and uses the films all the time…hopefully others can benefit from them as well. Please feel free to share with teachers, family, friends or anyone you know who might find them useful.

Enjoy!

Greetings Earth People,

This week’s new music tracks are:

On my Sci-Fi 7 page:

"INVASION!" – They’re heading this way! Run for your life! Aliens? Zombies? Slimy monsters? Something else entirely?

https://soundimage.org/sci-fi-7/

On my Funny 6 page:

“PARTY GHOULS” - Rockin’ it in their haunted party mansion. This track might be fun in a goofy Halloween-themed game or something like that.

https://soundimage.org/funny-6/

And two tracks on my Positive / Upbeat page:

"OF SUMMERS GONE BY" – Here’s a high energy 80’s-style piece with a sweet, slightly magical feel that might sound nice in a game, video or perhaps something else.

CAREFREE DAYS AT PELICAN SHORES – Carefree and creative…bouncing around town without a worry in the world. Wouldn’t that be great?

https://soundimage.org/positive-upbeat/

All are free to use, as always, with attribution.

If anyone has kids or younger siblings, I've created a fun environmental learning series that (I hope) will engage them through stories and characters. The organization I made it for uses the films all the time, and I'm sharing them with the rest of the world. Please feel free to check them out and share with friends, parents, teachers or anyone else who might find them helpful.

https://soundimage.org/dunes-island/

Keep being creative and have a good weekend!

Hi everyone,

Here’s a brand new music track for you:

On my City/Urban page:

ON THE PROWL WITH CAPED CRUSADER CAT – Wandering the midnight streets, searching for wrong-doers.
https://soundimage.org/city-urban-2/

I’m also working to build up the ambience section of my site…so here are some cool new ambiences on my AMB - Sci-Fi Ambience page:

MACHINE DREAMS – I wonder what it’s dreaming about? This might sound nice to create an eerie, weird-feeling environment or situation.

MYSTERIOUS AMBIENCE – This one might work for an alien underwater environment…or perhaps something else.
https://soundimage.org/amb-sci-fi-ambience/

If you find my work 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!

Greetings,

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
https://soundimage.org/sfx-coins/

As always, feel free to edit as needed.

Enjoy!

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.”
https://soundimage.org/dark-ominous-2/

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.
https://soundimage.org/nature-science-3/

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

Enjoy!

Well, I’ve hit the 1900 track mark. It’s a little hard to believe, especially since I started the site with just 100 tracks. Almost every day now someone contacts me and tells me how they’re using my assets. That’s great to hear…I love seeing how you guys are using my work in your projects. Have fun and keep being creative!

That said, this week’s new free music tracks are:

Greetings!

I’ve had a number of requests for uncompressed versions of my tracks, so I’ve begun making them available on Gumroad for a small free to help support the site. The MP3 files that I make freely available sound very good, but the original uncompressed WAV files sound really incredible…give them a try!

If anyone is curious as to why I didn’t upload WAV files to begin with, the reason is that my web hosting service places limitations on file sizes and WAV files tend to be very large.

Anyhow, it’s going to take some time to upload everything, so if anyone has any requests for WAV versions of tracks you happen to like, just drop me an email and I’ll upload them to Gumroad for you. Feel free to convert to Ogg or any format you like.

That said, this week’s new free tracks are:

On my Sci-Fi 8 page:

EMERGING ALIEN CIVILIZATIONS – (Looping) – As they become industrialized, hopefully they won’t make the same mistakes we have.

https://soundimage.org/sci-fi-8/

And on my AMB - Urban Ambience page, more large city street ambience:

STREET CORNER_M-30 – Traffic, distant sirens, pedestrians, someone whistles, trucks passing, talking, horns, etc.
STREET CORNER_M30_2 – Noisy traffic passes, pedestrians, talking, distant brakes squeak, etc.

https://soundimage.org/amb-urban-ambience/

Enjoy!

Well, WAV files proved too large to upload onto Gumroad in any reasonable amount of time (we’re talking 1900+ tracks) so I’m uploading Ogg files instead. I’ve started with my Fantasy page. They sound really great…give them a try!

Meanwhile, if anyone has requests for WAV versions of tracks you happen to like, feel free to contact me.

That said, this week’s new free tracks are:

On my Action 3 page:

WILD WEST COAST RACING 8 – (Looping) – Here’s another one that features a blues-y chord progression (in the C and D sections) giving it a very subtle humorous feel.

https://soundimage.org/action-3/

On my Puzzle Music 4 page:

PUZZLE JOURNEYS – (Looping) – Maybe for some kind of futuristic puzzle game…or perhaps something else.

https://soundimage.org/puzzle-music-4/

And on my AMB - Urban Ambience page:

STREET CORNER_P-29 – Traffic, people talking, distant brakes squeaking, construction, bicycle passes.

STREET CORNER_P-29_2 – Less traffic. Pedestrians talking, cars beep, bicycle passes, distant horns, truck pulls up, air brakes from truck, subway heard underground coming into station, another subway passes underground, distant helicopter.

STREET CORNER_P30 – Traffic passes, people pass on sidewalk, car horn, etc.

https://soundimage.org/amb-urban-ambience/

I hope some of my work is helpful!

OGG MUSIC UPDATE:

Super high-quality Ogg files are now available for every track on my Fantasy 1 page as well as my Sci-Fi/Space page. And for about half of the tracks on my Looping Music page and my Horror/Surreal page. They sound amazing…almost as good as uncompressed WAV files…give them a try if they work in your projects.

Meanwhile, if anyone has requests for Ogg versions of tracks that you happen to like but aren’t on the site yet, just let me know and I’ll be happy to upload them for you.

That said, I have a couple of band new free tracks ready:

On my Funny 6 page:
SEWER SHENANIGANS – (Looping) – Maybe for humorous monsters underground…or funny criminals up to who-knows-what down there.
https://soundimage.org/funny-6/

On my Puzzle Music 4 page:
CYBER LIGHT CHASE – (Looping) – Perhaps for a faster-paced puzzle game? Or maybe something else?
https://soundimage.org/puzzle-music-4/

OGG MUSIC UPDATE:

All of my music tracks on my Horror/Surreal page can now be downloaded as very high-quality Ogg files. Halloween’s not too far off, so I’ll try to create more creepy music tracks this month.

I had a super busy week creating original music for some indie projects, but I managed to get a few new free tracks done for everyone:

On my Fantasy 9 page:

MELANQUIRKY HOLLOW – (Looping) – Here’s a strange little piece that combines melancholy with quirkiness. Perhaps for humorously sad inhabitants of a fantasy village who stumble around drunk all the time? This one definitely falls into the “I’d be very interested to see what someone uses this for” category…lol.

https://soundimage.org/fantasy-9/

On my Urban Ambience page:

STREET_R29 – General street ambience. No foot traffic. Truck passes. Distant brakes.

STREET_E30 – General street ambience. No foot traffic.

https://soundimage.org/amb-urban-ambience/

Have a good weekend!

As Halloween approaches, I thought I’d focus this month on creating new tracks that might be useful in Halloween-themed projects (or horror, etc.)

That said, all of this week’s new tracks are on my Horror/Surreal Page:

SHATTERED MIND – Surreal and disturbing, this could be used in all kinds of nightmarish things I’m sure. Easy to loop as well.

WELCOME TO THE MANSION – A haunted mansion that is. Muah hah hah!

SHATTERED REALITY – Another surrealistic piece. Might sound cool in a sci-fi project, too.

https://soundimage.org/horrorsurreal/

All of my tracks are 100% free to use with attribution. Enjoy!

“MYSTICAL HIGHLANDS” – (Looping) – Perhaps atop faraway mountains where the clouds drift below you. Or maybe in the quiet alleyways of an ancient city.
https://soundimage.org/fantasy-9/

Here are a couple new music tracks that might work for Halloween projects…or perhaps other things:

"CREEPY HOLLOW" - Will you venture into the mist-filled forest? This track loops easily, btw.
https://soundimage.org/dark-ominous-2/

“THE ATTIC OF SECRETS” – (Looping) – A dark, drafty place filled with long-forgotten things. What will you find?
https://soundimage.org/fantasy-9/

Have a good weekend…and keep being creative!
