SmartSound intros, bumpers, stingers play an important part in a video production. Short and sweet, they still keep the magic going in keeping up the ambience, and dovetailing with the longer background sequences. Orchestral cues lend themselves to drama, sports scenes, or major product introductions.
Strings may be the heart of the orchestra, but piano is the diva (this coming a piano player, of course!) Classical Royalty Free Piano Music from SmartSound gives ample play to this glorious partnership, with 59 tracks to fill the bill.
Considered a precursor to modern ambient music, Gymnopedie #1 from turn of the 20th-century composer Erik Satie, revisited in leisurely, lilting Autumn Rain One from Artistic Impressions could have been written any time in the last twenty years. Use this classical piano ballad in reflective or pensive scenes, in Meditation pieces or mellow TV drama scenes. Piano is joined by some mysterious percussion instrument striking notes that sound just like raindrops hitting a pool.
Big band music developed in the 1920’s when bands of 10-25 musicians, including a string section, played danceable jazz tunes with sweet, romantic melodies. Big band sound became an important part of morale during World War II in the 1940’s when big bands often entertained the troops overseas.
Royalty Free Big Band Music both reprises past hits from the biggest big band era (1930’s and ’40’s), such as in Big Band Blast, but also offers modern versions sprinkled throughout other albums.
New Age Royalty Free Music is one of the genres that truly is relatively recent in development, tracing its roots only back as far as the 1960’s and 1970’s. It often includes the use of classical instruments, such as acoustic guitar, flute and harp, as well Eastern instruments—sitar and tamboura.
The tone of New Age music is almost always in the direction of relaxation, tranquility, and optimism for the future. Often used in yoga classes, meditation, massage, it embodies the spiritual search for serenity as a way to deal more effectively with life.Dancing Reflections, from the Lifestyles-New Age album, echoes that mellow inspiration, but with a definite beat and an intriguing deeper tone built in to give it an earthy, Latin-esque feel. Nature, Home Video and Travel will benefit from this sensual song from the Strata series.
Whether we like to admit it or not, work is work and even if you’re an office worker, you can get into the groove of instrumental music. There’s no better way to do it for your production than by using SmartSound’s instrumental corporate music tracks for the occasion. Here’s just a small sampling of those songs:
Happiness is a choice; it’s ten percent what happens to us, and ninety percent how we react to it. Easy Listening Royalty Free Music from SmartSound conveys both the peaceful reassurance of this viewpoint, and also its unconventionality, in the variety and intriguing treatments available through SmartSound’s multi-track albums.
Smartsound's Royalty Free Music by Indie Artists lean heavily on electric and acoustic guitar styles, and Indie Spirit kicks it off with a collection featuring various levels of intensity. Punchy, Alternative Rock track Dances With Peppers could star in your next Indie or Short Film. It’s bluesy tempo belies its confident stance, a big and jangly rock track, that puts its foot down.
While vocals can often add to the beauty of a wedding song, sometimes the piece being purely instrumental can say it all. SmartSound’s library has a wide array of instrumental wedding music that will bolster your wedding video production. Here’s just a sampling of the music we have to offer in this genre:
Lush and moving, heartwarming track A Tender Melody features a pensive clarinet on a stirring and memorable melody. A high string entrance later creates a sense of emerging hope. Many great songs just like this one can be found on the parent album, Tender Moments. It is comprised of subtly orchestrated tracks that exhibit a variety of tender emotions: pensiveness, quiet, personal hope, introspective playfulness, quiet strength, soft redemption and more. Lightly orchestrated with simple piano, light strings and an occasional woodwind, use Sonicfire Pro's Mood Mapping feature to reduce texture for a more fragile and touching story line.
Music has a strange way of being able to get you into different moods for different times in your life. Many associate rock music with being able to get you in a mood to be motivated, to achieve something great. SmartSound has a diverse array of songs to do just that for your production. Here are some examples to help get you started...
