Light, upbeat royalty free music is an ideal background for commercials, informational videos and corporate training pieces. If you operate a business that uses an automated customer service system, engaging your listeners with pleasant, easy-listening music while they’re on hold is a proven strategy. At SmartSound Royalty Free Music, we’ve built a large library of optimistic and cheerful background music that’s ideal for a wide range of applications.
These royalty free music beds make great ambient background music for any project. Instrumental music that won't overpower even the softest dialog. Electronic tracks for more vibrant backgrounds, and hypnotic sounds that work great with mediation and yoga.
Interestingly enough, the number of tracks answering to both Classical and Orchestral among the SmartSound stacks is relatively small. However dozens of songs in the Classical department, played with full orchestra, could easily take their place in productions needing Classical Royalty Free Orchestral Music.
Leading the pack, as appropriate, is Richard Strauss’ Zarathustra from album Cinema Standards, arranged by Ron Sorbo. Immediately recognizable from its use as theme music for the Apollo space program, and in the greatest movie of all time, 2001, A Space Odyssey, (Can you tell I’m prejudiced?) this theme makes a fantastic intro for stories of epic proportions.
Dance music isn’t just for party and club scenes. It makes an excellent counterpoint in any scene where you’re aiming to amp up the energy or build the thrill of anticipation. You can also use traditional dance music to create a sense of cultural authenticity.
SmartSound Royalty Free Dance Music has a wide range of dance music collections, from folk songs to contemporary techno and electronica. No matter what mood you’re trying to strike, we’ve got the perfect sound!
SmartSound’s Heartwarming Royalty Free Pop Music brings it together, fleshing out all that is heartwarming in terms of uplifting, positive and motivating, with Rock’s happy-go-lucky offspring, Pop Music.
From Jangle Pop comes sweet, expansive ballad, True Desire, which starts out quietly and pensively with Indie guitar riffs. It’s then joined unobtrusively by string beds, like two opposites attracting each other, but still tentative. Pop Rock and strings make for a great relationship and this track turns up the joy fast, building to the climax of the story just in time for a Short Film.
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.
Royalty Free Country Music features catchy upbeat rhythms, ballads and barroom blues. Contemporary Country goes to town with Southern, confident Beer Bottle Blues, a no-frills gritty guitar jam that kicks back and wails it for a biography or any scene needing the good-times Country/Folk feel. Tasty funk guitar licks strut through the nightlife scene with Down Home Funk, in a fresh country-soul blend.
SmartSound’s collection of classical music is impressive, with 28 albums currently featuring tracks labeled as classical. Numbers from genuinely classical composers such as Bach, Beethoven, and Mozart are well-represented, as are modern composers who write in classical style. Just as guitars are essential in modern rock music, strings are the heavy hitters in classical. SmartSound’s Classical Royalty Free Strings Music fills these albums with the beautiful sounds of violins, violincellos, and acoustic basses.
Baroque musical style implies embellishment with flourishes as colorful as they are, sometimes, extreme. Spirited Baroque 1 from album Parlour Games pours it on, despite only four instruments used in this Chamber Group quartet track. It’s regal and dignified, reflecting the power of just a few people working together. As was done for movie Marie Antoinette, whimsically juxtaposing modern music in a 200-year-old story, this track could find a home in an Indie Film or Short Film.
