Hi everyone,

Here are some brand new music tracks to finish out the year. Free to use with attribution:

On my Fantasy 11 page:

YE OLDE PUB (Looping and non-looping)
https://soundimage.org/fantasy-11/

On my Puzzle Music 6 page:

WEIRD PUZZLE BUILDERS – (Looping)
https://soundimage.org/puzzle-music-6/

And on my Sci-Fi 9 page:

SKY WORLDS – (Looping)
https://soundimage.org/sci-fi-9/

NEWS

Speaking of Sci-Fi, more Ogg Music Packs are ready on these pages:

Sci-Fi 2, Sci-Fi 7 and Sci-Fi 8

CUSTOM MUSIC

If anyone happens to need some custom music, I do that as well. Info is here:

https://soundimage.org/custom-work/

Providing music that helps creative people complete their projects is so rewarding…please don’t hesitate to contact me if you need some help.

In the meantime, if you find my free music helpful, please consider making a small donation on my website to help support my efforts.

Have a great New Year’s!

Happy New Year, fellow creatives!

Did everybody drink too much? I certainly hope so! ;-)

Seriously, though, 2020 was pretty rough…I really hope 2021 is better.

Anyhow, here are some brand new MP3 music tracks to kick off the New Year. 100% free to use with attribution:

GOINGS-ON IN PIXEL TOWN (standard and looping)
THE 8-BIT MARCH (standard and looping)
WINDLE PIXEL’S 8-BIT CIRCUS (standard and looping)

https://soundimage.org/chiptunes-4/

NEWS

Continuing my quest to provide Ogg versions of all my music tracks, I just added my history music page to the list.

https://soundimage.org/ancient/

If you aren't familiar with the Ogg format, it has several advantages over MP3 audio:

-Ogg tracks sound fantastic…almost as good as the original WAV recordings from which they are derived…plus they are much smaller in terms of file size.

-Game engines handle looping Ogg tracks better…MP3 tracks occasionally have to be edited at the looping point.

Give them a try!

In the meantime, if you find my free MP3 tracks helpful, please consider making a small donation on my website to help support my efforts.

Have a good week and please stay safe.

This week we have more free chiptunes-inspired music on my Chiptunes 4 page:

“SUMMERS IN QUIRKYVILLE” (standard and looping)
“COIN-OP STRANGENESS” (standard and looping)
“NOSTALGIC FOR QUIRKYVILLE” (standard and looping)
https://soundimage.org/chiptunes-4/

NEWS

For those of you who are using my free images, the links menu on my site has gotten out of control (again) so I’ve created a menu page for all of my image pages. You can access it from the menu bar toward the top of my site.

In the meantime, if you find my free music to be helpful, please consider making a small donation on my website to help support my efforts.

Please stay safe.

Hi everyone,

For this week, I’ve created some cool creepy music tracks that might be helpful. Free to use with attribution:

On my Fantasy 11 page:

“SCARY THINGS AHEAD”
“SCARY THINGS AHEAD 2”
https://soundimage.org/fantasy-11/

On my Horror 2 page:

“SURREALIZATION”
https://soundimage.org/horror-2/

And a wild chiptunes-style track on my Chiptunes 4 page:

NEWS

It’s great to see that people are beginning to download my Ogg music packs…I’m so glad they’re helpful! Personally, I think they’re a really good value…you get all of the Ogg tracks from any given page on my site (usually around 20) for the same price as purchasing 3 tracks individually. They're a great way to support my work...check them out!

The MP3 versions, as always, are completely free.

Speaking of which, if you find my free music to be helpful, please consider making a small donation on my website to help support my efforts.

Keep safe and stay healthy.

Happy February Everyone,

This week I have a cool new sci-fi track, some quirky chiptunes tracks and a nice fantasy track. All are free to use with attribution:

On my Sci-Fi 10 page:

“CYBERPUNK CITY GAME MENU” – (Looping) – Kind of a dreamy/techno/slightly ominous feel.

https://soundimage.org/chiptunes-4/

And on my Fantasy 1 page:

“IMAGINARY PLACES” – (Looping) – Perhaps for the intro to a fantasy game?

https://soundimage.org/fantasy-11/

Bulk Music Downloads are now available for these genres: Chiptunes, Fantasy, Puzzle and Sci-Fi.

I’ve received an increasing number of requests to make my music tracks available as bulk downloads (rather than having to download them one at a time) so that people can load them into their media players and listen to them while doing other things. Now you can download all of the tracks at once from these genres as Ogg music packs.

I hope they're helpful!
