    Hey there fellow gamers!

    I am Jonathan Shaw - a freelance composer and sound designer looking for more video game work! - and have just started releasing a free video game music library with a bunch of royalty-free video game tracks covering various themes and scenarios, all with an orchestral aesthetic. I will be releasing a new free track every week until they have all been released!

    If you would like to collaborate on a project, feel free to contact me here or on my website, where you can also find a commission prices and a portfolio (or check out the examples below!)

    But nevertheless, here is some information on the royalty-free music library. You can check out the tracks and download the free .MP3s here to get a taste of my style:

    3) Under the ".MP3 Download" column, click the big blue "Free - Click here!" button
    4) Enter "0" as a price on the new popup window (or if you are feeling generous, name your own price!)
    5) Click the big blue "Buy now"
    6) Done! You'll get sent a download link to your email
    7) Remember to credit the track in the credits list of your project! A good example is in the FAQ below!

    FAQ

    Where can I use these tracks?
    These tracks can be used in any project! While they are intended for use in video games, they can be used in other mediums (if you can make them fit, I applaud you!)

    It's free?! Are you pulling my leg? :O
    Yep - it's free! The .MP3 versions of the tracks are completely free to download and use, but you can also grab higher quality versions of the recordings for a small price (including an .OGG file, and the original .WAV file).

    Is this music royalty-free?
    Yep - entirely! The tracks I release in this library are all royalty-free! I have released them under an attribution license (see the question below) so you do need to credit the track(s), but otherwise, there is nothing else you have to do!

    Do I have to credit/attribute you if I use these in my project?
    Yes! A lot of blood, sweat and English tea went into creating these tracks, so if you use them, do please mention the track(s) in the credits list. A good format is:

    "(Track Title)"
    Composed by Jonathan Shaw
    (www.jshaw.co.uk)

    Can you compose a new track for my project?
    I most certainly can! Feel free to check out my commissions page, or contact me here or on my website!
