  1. Free Music / SFX Resource - Over 2000 Tracks

    Another very busy week…and I’m a bit under the weather…but here are some new tracks for everyone. Free to use, of course, with attribution. On my Puzzle Music 5 page: ISLAND OF PUZZLES – (Looping) TROPICAL MYSTERIES – (Looping) https://soundimage.org/puzzle-music-5/ On my World page: EXOTIC DANGERS - (Looping) https://soundimage.org/world/ I’m glad to see that my Ogg files are being utilized…I’ll try to get more uploaded this week.

  2. Free Music / SFX Resource - Over 2000 Tracks

    Another big THANK YOU to those of you who reached out and supported my efforts this month. You make this possible for the rest of the community…thank you! It’s been a very busy week, but I did get a few new tracks done for everyone. You’ll find them all on my Sci-Fi 9 page: ROBO BOSS BATTLE – (Looping) GRUNGE STREET – (Looping) MOONLIT CYBER ALLEYS – (Looping) https://soundimage.org/sci-fi-9/ Enjoy…and please stay safe (and healthy.)
  3. Free Music / SFX Resource - Over 2000 Tracks

    Another Special Request to Everyone: If you possibly can, please consider making a small donation on my website to support my work. The synthesizers I use to create free music for everyone are very expensive (2 Korgs and a Yamaha.) I actually have to make monthly payments on them and donations from the creative community really help me a LOT to pay for them. Thanks in advance. :-) That said, I managed to get a couple of new tracks done for everyone. Free to use, as always, with attribution: On My Epic / Battle page: “COMRADES ALWAYS” (Looping) https://soundimage.org/epic-battle/ On my Fantasy 10 page: “OF KNIGHTS AND KINGS” (Looping) https://soundimage.org/fantasy-10/ Please stay safe and healthy.

    Good News: Super high-quality Ogg versions of all of my Puzzle Music Tracks are ready.

  9. Dune's Island - A Free Video Learning Series

    No problem...I hope it's helpful! :-) Hi everyone, If you've been following my music sharing thread over the years, you know that I'm not one to toot my own whistle, but I've been getting some very positive feedback about "Dune's Island" from parents and teachers so I included a "Praise for Dune's Island" page on the site. Given the current environmental situation, I believe that this is a very important project. Getting the word out about it is a massive challenge, though...especially since it has no advertising budget. If you think "Dune's Island" might be helpful to someone you know, please share it with them. Thanks in advance! https://www.dunesisland.org/

  13. Dune's Island - A Free Video Learning Series

    I had always intended "Dune's Island" to be an immersive learning world. The idea was to produce films that teachers and home educators could actually pull lessons from to share with their students. After completing the episodes, a team of science teachers went through the films and created curriculum for grades K-5 that ties into the episodes. Here's a link to it: https://www.dunesisland.org/curriculum Please feel free to share it!
  14. Building a Free Library of Images for Everyone

    Hi everyone, Brand new seamless texture images are ready on these pages: TXR – ABSTRACT https://soundimage.org/txr-abstract/ TXR – WOOD - SEAMLESS https://soundimage.org/txr-wood-seamless/ For those of you who are using my music tracks, I had a request last weekend for a bunch of higher quality Ogg versions of my tracks that I hadn’t yet converted, so they are now available if anyone is interested. They are: Funky Gameplay Windle Pixel Saves the Day (Looping) Puzzling Curiosities Points Tally Pixelin’ It Around Town Mysterious Puzzle Cyber Puzzles Cryptic Puzzler 2 Arcade Puzzler_v001 They sound great and are a cool way to support my work. :-)
  15. Dune's Island - A Free Video Learning Series

    If anyone happens to wonder what I get up to when I’m not creating music for everyone, I write and direct films that hopefully help kids (and grownups) learn important things. Here's a link to the page on my new site where you can freely access all of the "Dune's Island" episodes. I’ve enabled the download function on Vimeo so you don’t even have to be online to share it with your kiddos. https://www.dunesisland.org/episodes Enjoy…and please feel free to share with anyone who might find it useful. Stay safe and healthy.
