Sharing My Music and Sound Effects - Over 1500 Tracks


(Eric Matyas) #41

You’re very welcome…I hope some of my tracks are helpful! :slight_smile:

Yes definitely. I am now using them in my stories to add to the atmosphere depending on where you are in the story. After browsing your music library I decided to go ahead and implement background music in my Android writing tool. How it works is: the story file is packed with any images and music files into a zip file and put in a cloud storage for other people to download, read, and re-share on social media. This means your music may start spreading around, and you are attributed in the story file. The writer must agree to properly attribute all third-party content creators in a credits page before uploading or sharing anything.

What do you think about this setup?

For the future I envision an audio library for writers with royalty free music indexed on tags, and automatically adding your credits to these stories if your music is used. Long term would-like-to-have plans~ :stuck_out_tongue:.

As long as I’m attributed properly, all is good. Thanks for sharing my tracks. :slight_smile:

If anyone happens to feel the need to decompress from the stress of modern life (like me) I’ve created a little video called “The Meditative Coast” that should hopefully help a little bit. It’s on my new “Virtual Cinema” page…give it a try.

In the meantime, I’ve got more free looping tracks ready on my fantasy pages. They are:

“Quirky Dreamscape”_Looping

soundimage.org/fantasy-4/

“Digital Downtown”_Looping

“Backstory”_Looping

soundimage.org/fantasy-5/

“Awkward Princess’s Day Out”_Looping

“Once Around the Kingdom”_Looping

“Some Faraway Place”_Looping

“The Princess Haunted”_Looping

soundimage.org/fantasy-6/

I hope some of them are helpful!

Hello Eric,
I’ve listened to some of your music and like your style.
As an IF writer (programmer) I am looking for a soundtrack to add atmosphere to my new game.
Are you still sharing songs?

Beached! (part 2 ) will be released within the next 6 months or so.
If you’re interested in adding a soundtrack, please look at Beached! to see what the game will be all about.

Regards,
Ewald

I just want to pop in and say this is an amazing service you’re doing for the community, Eric. Thank you.

You’re very welcome…I hope some of my tracks are helpful!

Btw, I want to send out a great big heartfelt thank you to everyone who has personally reached out to me about my film “Then Meditative Coast.” I’m glad that you’re enjoying it and hope that it helps to lower your blood pressure in these stressful times that we live in. Please feel free to share the film with anyone who might find it helpful.

Hey Everyone,

I had a busy week shooting images, but I did manage to get some new tracks done:

“STRANGE NATURE”_Looping – Bizarre creatures are everywhere…if you look.

soundimage.org/naturescience/

“HYPNOTIC ORIENT”_Looping – I’d love to hear this in a travel video.

“EXOTIC DREAMING”_Looping – of faraway places. (I’ve been doing a lot of that lately.)

“EXOTIC CRUISING”_Looping – might be nice in a travel or vacation video. (Anyone want to treat me to a cruise? Haha.)

soundimage.org/events/

Awe, come on…I could really use a cruise! :wink:


(Eric Matyas) #50

Well, it was another busy week, but I guess that’s a good thing…keeping busy keeps me out of trouble…usually… :wink: Anyhow, I managed to get these done:

“RIVER IN TROUBLE”_Looping – Thinking about the Colorado River in the American south west.
“ALASKAN MOONRISE”_Looping – Could work in a nature documentary or perhaps something else.
“FLURRIES”_Looping – That chill in the air tells you the first snow fall of winter is on its way.

soundimage.org/naturescience-2/

“PELICAN BAY TIKI PARTY”_Looping – A fun tropical piece.

soundimage.org/positive-upbeat/

“SCULPTURE GARDEN”_Looping – A string piece with the suggestion of gently bubbling fountains. Might be nice for a classy outdoor event.

soundimage.org/classical-sounding/

I also created a new page of sky images…mostly taken around sunset…for anyone who’s interested…(TXR - SKIES) I hope some of them are helpful. :slight_smile:

Have a good week!

Hi everyone,

It’s a little hard to believe, but Soundimage turned 3 years old this month, so I wanted to send out a big thank you to everyone who has been so positive and encouraging from the start. Creating original music is a lot of work, but it’s thrilling to hear my tracks in your games, apps, videos and emerging art forms like interactive novels. I feel like part of me is in your work, and it’s incredibly satisfying to be able to help you make your visions into realities.

Thank you!

In a few more weeks, I should have seamless looping versions done of nearly every track on the site. That said, this week’s new free tracks are from my sci-fi pages. They are:

“Retro Sci-Fi Planet”_Looping

“Night Winds”_Looping

“Eerie Cyber World”_Looping

“Dizzybot”_Looping

soundimage.org/sci-fi/

“Dystopic Technology”_Looping

soundimage.org/sci-fi-2/

I hope some of them are helpful!

(Eric Matyas) #53

Hi everyone,

“Sewer Monsters”_Looping

soundimage.org/sci-fi-2/

“Closing In 2”_Looping

“Night Stalker”_Looping

“Disturbed Soundscape”_Looping

“Lurking in the Shadows”_Looping

soundimage.org/horrorsurreal/

I’ve received a lot of requests for chiptunes style music so I’ve opened a chiptunes page and uploaded a bunch of tracks to get it started. I hope some of them are helpful!

soundimage.org/chiptunes/

Have a great week!


(Eric Matyas) #55

Hi everyone,

Here are this week’s new free tracks:

“Strange Zone”_Looping

soundimage.org/horrorsurreal/

“Alien Vistas”_Looping

soundimage.org/sci-fi-5/

“Murder in the Outer Colonies”_Looping

“Faltering Circuits”_Looping

soundimage.org/sci-fi-4/

And don’t forget to check out my new Chiptunes page if you haven’t already. :slight_smile:

soundimage.org/chiptunes/

Have a great week!


(Eric Matyas) #56

Hi everyone,

This week’s new free tracks are:

“Cyber Dystopia”_Looping

soundimage.org/sci-fi-5/

“Sewer Creepers”_Looping

“Grunge Bot”_Looping

“Breakdown”_Looping

“Countdown”_Looping

soundimage.org/sci-fi-4/

I get emails every once in a while from folks who seem to be having a bit of trouble navigating the site. Here are some things to keep in mind that should hopefully help:

  1. The titles of the pages in the tan box under the header image are actually links to the various pages. Hover over them to highlight them (a box appears around them) and then click.

  2. I think sometimes people are fooled when they click on one of the page links, like for example “Fantasy 3” and nothing seems to happen. But if you look closer, you’ll see that the title of the link you clicked on actually turns to bold indicating that you are now on that particular page. Simply scroll down to see the contents of that page.

  3. Since all of the page links appear at the top of every page, it’s easy to think that you haven’t been taken anywhere after clicking on one of them. Again, notice that the title of the link you clicked on has now turned bold…and you have to scroll down to see the page contents.

Anyhow, I hope that’s helpful! :slight_smile:


(Eric Matyas) #57

It’s been a very hectic week, but I did manage to upload some new tracks:

I hope everyone’s having a calmer, less stressful week than I am. :slight_smile:


(Eric Matyas) #58

Hi everyone,

Things have finally calmed down a bit…pfew! …In that spirit here’s:

“Gulf Breeze”_Looping

“Intriguing Future”_Looping

“Future Business”_Looping

“Future Grid”_Looping

“Switch On”_Looping

soundimage.org/techno/

Enjoy your week! :slight_smile:


(Eric Matyas) #59

Hi everyone,

Now that looping versions of most of my tracks are done, I’m back to creating brand new music and soundscapes. Got a new synth, too, so lots of new sounds are on their way. Here are some for starters:

“Sky Runner” (standard and looping)
“Cyber Teen”
soundimage.org/sci-fi-5/

“It’s Always Sunny in the 80’s”
“It’s Raining Pixels”
“The Ice Cream Man”
soundimage.org/chiptunes/

“After the Invasion”
soundimage.org/horrorsurreal/

“From the Sand to the Stars”
soundimage.org/techno/

I hope some of them are useful! :slight_smile:


(Eric Matyas) #60

More brand new free tracks for everyone…

“REACHING ALTITUDE” – I would love to hear this in a drone video…(I’m a huge fan.) But it might work in a travel video as well.
soundimage.org/events/

“THE ASTRONOMY CLUB” – Somehow these kids always seemed to have a lovable goofiness about them. I was never in the astronomy club, but probably should have been…I love all things having to do with space (and certainly qualified as far as the goofy factor was concerned!)
soundimage.org/funny-3/

“GRUNGE STREET GAME” – (Looping) Might work under a fighting level.
soundimage.org/action/

“MIDNIGHT WANDERER” – Through the cold concrete jungle.
soundimage.org/city-urban-2/

“A CITY FOR ALL MANKIND” – Perhaps one day people will finally learn to get along.
soundimage.org/positive-upbeat/

Have a great week! :slight_smile:
