    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!

    Kicking off September, more new free tracks are ready for your projects, including several new looping versions that will hopefully be helpful:

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

    On my Fantasy page:

    CITY BENEATH THE WAVES – (New Looping Version) - Out of the murky blue, it emerges…unlike anything ever seen before. Might work in a fantasy piece, a game, or even a nature doc.
    MAGIC OCEAN_v001 – (Standard and Looping) - Added ocean ambience. Could work nicely in a fantasy game, nature doc, etc.
    https://soundimage.org/fantasywonder/

    On my Sci-Fi 7 page:

    LOST AND FALTERING – (New Looping Version) - In the dead of night, the machine-being wanders the rain-soaked streets, trying to find its way back home.

    On my Funny 5 page:

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

    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:

    "CARIIBEAN 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 all,

    Is anyone interested in super high quality Ogg or WAV versions of my tracks? I've been considering making them available for a small donation. Any feedback is welcome. :)

    In the meantime, here are this week's new free tracks:

    On my Nature/Science page:
    "Sunrise" (Looping)
    https://soundimage.org/naturescience/


    On my Positive/Upbeat page:

    "Happy Endings" (Looping)
    https://soundimage.org/positive-upbeat/


    On my Quiet/Peaceful/Mellow page:

    "Ice Road Sunrise" (Looping)
    https://soundimage.org/quiet-peaceful-mellow/


    Two tracks on my Sci-Fi/Space page:

    "Cold Moon" (Looping)

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


    And one on my Sports page:

    "The Games" (Looping)
    https://soundimage.org/sports/


    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.

    Have a good rest of your week!

    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!

    "A Walk Through the City" (Looping)
    "Inner City" (Looping)

    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)

    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!

    Happy December Everyone,

    Kicking off the new month, this week’s new free tracks are all on my Sci-Fi pages, so…

    On my Sci-Fi 5 page, we have:

    “DRIFTING OFF” – (Looping) - In the far future, perhaps this is what machine-beings will feel like as they quietly shut down for the day to recharge.

    soundimage.org/sci-fi-5

    On my Sci-Fi 6 page:

    “STRANDED IN THE ASTEROID BELT” – (Looping) - Millions of miles from home. The crippled ship is all but dead. Can help possibly get there in time?

    “END OF LIFE FOR A MACHINE-BEING” – (Looping) - As it slowly loses consciousness and shuts down.

    soundimage.org/sci-fi-6

    And on my Sci-Fi 7 page:

    “CYBER TEEN 2” – (Looping) - Roaming around the night in a futuristic city bathed in neon…perhaps a runaway.

    “ALLEY CHASE” – (Looping) - In a futuristic metropolis.

    soundimage.org/sci-fi-7

    I hope some of them are helpful in your projects!
