  1. Hi everyone, If you happen to have kids (or know someone who does) here's a brand new free resource that I hope is helpful. It's a video learning series I created called “Dune’s Island,” which aims to teach kids environmental stewardship in a really fun way through stories and characters. Here's a link to the episodes: Dune's Island | Soundimage.org I've also created a website that includes tie-in curriculum (like vocabulary, math problems, writing prompts and more.) Here's the link: https://www.dunesisland.org/ Enjoy and please share!

    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.
