Smartsound’s Cinematic Royalty Free Music provides albums echoing the intensity of big screen movies and TV programs. In fact, Smartsound music has starred in a number of TV and movie productions, including TV’s American Idol finals (May 24, 2011), and movies, Tropic Thunder and Bucket List. Smartsound’s Cinematic Music often "sounds like" many popular Top 40’s songs, or at the other end of the spectrum, classical music favorites. You might think, "Why not just use the popular songs themselves?" Two obstacles in that line of thinking make Royalty Free Cinematic Music a good choice.
The selection of royalty free music for making corporate videos is one of SmartSound's biggest categories, with over thirty albums to choose from. In most cases uplifting and positive is the desired mood, to keep not only stockholders, but also employees feeling motivated about what they’ve invested time or money into.
With Royalty Free Wedding Music you may be cuing up the evocative strains for a real wedding, or for the perfect cinematic portrayal. Often, in the movies, the traditional tunes take precedence over what might more commonly be played at a real wedding, in order to instantly transport the audience to the nuptial mood.
Royalty Free Music backgrounds run the gamut from sound effects, such as People and Animals—(Wild Bird wings, Jacuzzi bubbles, parakeets, Animal Band) to beats that underscore the action, the tension, and the excitement.
Album Edge 05:Drums/Rhythm/Pulse brings out the rhythm of your footage with pulse-pounding percussive landscapes, ethnic-flavored beats, and subtle, soothing drum patterns.
Traditional Christmas songs are well represented in SmartSound's Royalty Free Christmas Music, especially in album Christmas Treasures - Silent Night, with Strings and Sax, and Holiday Magic — 12 Days of Christmas. Check out the ethnic-flavored arrangement of We Three Kings, a calm, orchestral version.
For something different to back up your Christmas scenes, SmartSound brings you numerous offbeat tracks that evoke the season with fun departures from traditional. One of 21 tracks on Holiday Magic, sprightly Two More Days relentlessly chimes out the unbearable anticipation of young kids waiting for Christmas day.
Royalty Free Intro Music covers a lot of ground. First thought might be an intro to a movie setting the tone for grand drama to follow. Few can hear the Star Wars song, or “Tara’s Theme” from Gone With the Wind, for example, without being instantly transported to scenes from those film.
For large cinematic projects like this, explosive orchestral cues such as those found on Reality Drama TV really set the stage for the chaos and the glory to come. The 19 tracks of this album includes multiple related pieces that could be linked together to provide not only a dynamic intro, but also a dazzling finale, and short bumpers to transition between scenes.
Are you looking for royalty free music for Halloween productions? Well here are some ideas from the SmartSound Music Library.
The Tales of Horror Album from our Royalty Free Cinematic Music category is a collection of cues that are eerie and ethereal with dissonant strings, creepy effects and stabbing brass punctuation to make you afraid...very afraid.
Royalty Free Horror Music plays an integral part in manipulating the minds of willing viewers to get scared out of their wits. The quiet, eerie sequence of brooding tones does just as much to terrify, with all that it doesn’t say, as the frantic, crashing sounds of the horror scene that has arrived.
From the Screening Room, haunting Hidden Horror sets up the suspense with lonely woodwinds, and an uncertain string melody that intensify our sense of isolated terror.
Much of SmartSound's Royalty Free Animation Music is geared towards all things children's cartoons; playful, wacky, or even circus-like. However, animation has come a long way in recent decades, and animation venues for teens and adults have exploded. SmartSound's music library boasts sophisticated tracks to back up those projects as well.
In Richard Band Volume 5 – Comedy a large, live studio orchestra creates the wacky wherewithal to skid through classic cartoon shorts, or any comedic scene. Orchestra and strings, particularly xylophone and woodwinds, bob through the antics in Just Ducky a whimsical, tongue-in-cheek track just right for Home Videos and Comedy, as well as Animation.
The Smartsound advantage makes Smartsound's Royalty Free Music a natural for film scoring. Not only do their nearly 4000 tracks give amazing variety and synchronicity among similar albums, but each song can be added to or subtracted from, to create an infinite number of variations; enough to populate a lengthy movie.
Take the luminous strains of Unrevealed Truth, from Indie Score, a pensive, orchestral song using Piano, Chimes, and Marimba in addition to Studio Orchestra to create great depth expressing moods, from suspenseful to desolate.
