  1. Free Music Resource - Over 1800 Tracks

    Happy Thursday! Here are this week’s new tracks…100% free to use with attribution: “MYSTICAL HIGHLANDS” – (Looping) – Perhaps atop faraway mountains where the clouds drift below you. Or maybe in the quiet alleyways of an ancient city. https://soundimage.org/fantasy-9/ Here are a couple new music tracks that might work for Halloween projects…or perhaps other things: "CREEPY HOLLOW" - Will you venture into the mist-filled forest? This track loops easily, btw. https://soundimage.org/dark-ominous-2/ “THE ATTIC OF SECRETS” – (Looping) – A dark, drafty place filled with long-forgotten things. What will you find? https://soundimage.org/fantasy-9/ Have a good weekend…and keep being creative!

    Hey everyone, I just opened a new page of stone pixel art-style tiles. You’ll find them here: ART – Stone https://soundimage.org/art-stone/ Feel free to edit as needed. I’ve also created a bunch of new ground tiles. They live here: ART – Ground https://soundimage.org/art-ground/ As always, if you have any requests, feel free to pm or email me. I hope some of my work is helpful!

    As Halloween approaches, I thought I’d focus this month on creating new tracks that might be useful in Halloween-themed projects (or horror, etc.) That said, all of this week’s new tracks are on my Horror/Surreal Page: SHATTERED MIND – Surreal and disturbing, this could be used in all kinds of nightmarish things I’m sure. Easy to loop as well. WELCOME TO THE MANSION – A haunted mansion that is. Muah hah hah! SHATTERED REALITY – Another surrealistic piece. Might sound cool in a sci-fi project, too. https://soundimage.org/horrorsurreal/ All of my tracks are 100% free to use with attribution. Enjoy!

    OGG MUSIC UPDATE: All of my music tracks on my Horror/Surreal page can now be downloaded as very high-quality Ogg files. Halloween’s not too far off, so I’ll try to create more creepy music tracks this month. I had a super busy week creating original music for some indie projects, but I managed to get a few new free tracks done for everyone: On my Fantasy 9 page: MELANQUIRKY HOLLOW – (Looping) – Here’s a strange little piece that combines melancholy with quirkiness. Perhaps for humorously sad inhabitants of a fantasy village who stumble around drunk all the time? This one definitely falls into the “I’d be very interested to see what someone uses this for” category…lol. https://soundimage.org/fantasy-9/ On my Urban Ambience page: STREET_R29 – General street ambience. No foot traffic. Truck passes. Distant brakes. STREET_E30 – General street ambience. No foot traffic. https://soundimage.org/amb-urban-ambience/ Have a good weekend!

    Hi guys, I’ve been super busy this week creating custom music for a bunch of indie projects, but I did manage some more mad experiments with pixel art-style wood tiles...128X128. You can download them freely here: https://soundimage.org/art-wood/ OGG MUSIC UPDATE: All of the music tracks on my Horror/Surreal page can now be downloaded as very high-quality Ogg files. Halloween’s not too far off, so I’ll try to create more creepy music tracks this month. Meanwhile, if anyone has requests for Ogg versions of tracks that haven’t been made available yet, just let me know and I’ll be happy to upload them for you. Enjoy!

    OGG MUSIC UPDATE: Super high-quality Ogg files are now available for every track on my Fantasy 1 page as well as my Sci-Fi/Space page. And for about half of the tracks on my Looping Music page and my Horror/Surreal page. They sound amazing…almost as good as uncompressed WAV files…give them a try if they work in your projects. Meanwhile, if anyone has requests for Ogg versions of tracks that you happen to like but aren’t on the site yet, just let me know and I’ll be happy to upload them for you. That said, I have a couple of band new free tracks ready: On my Funny 6 page: SEWER SHENANIGANS – (Looping) – Maybe for humorous monsters underground…or funny criminals up to who-knows-what down there. https://soundimage.org/funny-6/ On my Puzzle Music 4 page: CYBER LIGHT CHASE – (Looping) – Perhaps for a faster-paced puzzle game? Or maybe something else? https://soundimage.org/puzzle-music-4/ Enjoy!

    More mad experimenting this week. I’ve been trying to create some new looks for pixel art-style images, specifically tiles that can be used in 2D games and things. On my ART – Brick page, you’ll find: A bunch of cool new brick tiles, 64 by 64 pixels each. Some have a 3D look to them. https://soundimage.org/art-brick/ On my ART – Ground page, you’ll find: A variety of new ground tiles that could work for rocky surfaces, grass, sand, etc. https://soundimage.org/art-ground/ MUSIC UPDATE: Super high-quality Ogg files are now available for every track on my Fantasy 1 page as well as my Sci-Fi/Space page. And for about half of the tracks on my Looping Music page. Eventually, they will be available for every track on my site. Meanwhile, if anyone has requests for Ogg versions of tracks you happen to like, just let me know and I’ll be happy to upload them for you. Enjoy and keep being creative!

    Well, WAV files proved too large to upload onto Gumroad in any reasonable amount of time (we’re talking 1900+ tracks) so I’m uploading Ogg files instead. I’ve started with my Fantasy page. They sound really great…give them a try! Meanwhile, if anyone has requests for WAV versions of tracks you happen to like, feel free to contact me. That said, this week’s new free tracks are: On my Action 3 page: WILD WEST COAST RACING 8 – (Looping) – Here’s another one that features a blues-y chord progression (in the C and D sections) giving it a very subtle humorous feel. https://soundimage.org/action-3/ On my Puzzle Music 4 page: PUZZLE JOURNEYS – (Looping) – Maybe for some kind of futuristic puzzle game…or perhaps something else. https://soundimage.org/puzzle-music-4/ And on my AMB - Urban Ambience page: STREET CORNER_P-29 – Traffic, people talking, distant brakes squeaking, construction, bicycle passes. STREET CORNER_P-29_2 – Less traffic. Pedestrians talking, cars beep, bicycle passes, distant horns, truck pulls up, air brakes from truck, subway heard underground coming into station, another subway passes underground, distant helicopter. STREET CORNER_P30 – Traffic passes, people pass on sidewalk, car horn, etc. https://soundimage.org/amb-urban-ambience/ I hope some of my work is helpful!

    Hi guys, New free images are waiting for your projects on these pages: ART – Cobblestones More mad experimenting. I made some pixel art style images from a couple of my cobblestone images. Maybe for castles and things? They look pretty cool scaled down. Feel free to edit / take samples from them / scale them as needed, etc. https://soundimage.org/art-cobblestones/ ART – Brick Some new pixel art-style brick images. Trying to come up with some fresh new looks. Feel free to edit / take samples from them / scale them as needed, etc. https://soundimage.org/art-brick/ MUSIC UPDATE: WAV files proved too large to upload onto Gumroad in any reasonable amount of time…(we’re talking about 1900+ tracks) so I’m uploading Ogg files instead.

    Greetings! I’ve had a number of requests for uncompressed versions of my tracks, so I’ve begun making them available on Gumroad for a small free to help support the site. The MP3 files that I make freely available sound very good, but the original uncompressed WAV files sound really incredible…give them a try! If anyone is curious as to why I didn’t upload WAV files to begin with, the reason is that my web hosting service places limitations on file sizes and WAV files tend to be very large. Anyhow, it’s going to take some time to upload everything, so if anyone has any requests for WAV versions of tracks you happen to like, just drop me an email and I’ll upload them to Gumroad for you. Feel free to convert to Ogg or any format you like. That said, this week’s new free tracks are: On my Sci-Fi 8 page: EMERGING ALIEN CIVILIZATIONS – (Looping) – As they become industrialized, hopefully they won’t make the same mistakes we have. https://soundimage.org/sci-fi-8/ And on my AMB - Urban Ambience page, more large city street ambience: STREET CORNER_M-30 – Traffic, distant sirens, pedestrians, someone whistles, trucks passing, talking, horns, etc. STREET CORNER_M30_2 – Noisy traffic passes, pedestrians, talking, distant brakes squeak, etc. https://soundimage.org/amb-urban-ambience/ Enjoy!

    Hey guys, If anyone is interested, I was recently asked to do an interview for a really cool website called Exilian. The site helps facilitate all kinds of creative projects. Here’s a link if anyone wants to check it out: https://exilian.co.uk/articles.php I hope my answers are entertaining and (somewhat) intelligent…lol. Please feel free to share! That said, this week’s new free tracks are: On my History page: ANCIENT TIMES – (Looping) – Perhaps for a history-themed game? https://soundimage.org/ancient/ On my Sci-Fi 8 page: ESCAPE FROM CYBERPUNK CITY – This piece might sound cool in a dystopic urban-based project. https://soundimage.org/sci-fi-8/ And on my AMB - Urban Ambience page, some really nice large city street ambience: STREET CORNER_5-30 – Trucks, taxis, horns, people talking, distant brakes squeaking, cyclist passes, etc. STREET CORNER_5-29 – Scooter idles at corner, traffic passes, brakes squeak, baby heard, air brakes from truck, people talking, trucks pass, distant brakes squeak, etc. https://soundimage.org/amb-urban-ambience/ Enjoy and keep being creative!
