Specialty Music is meant to be different, to add a dimension of the unusual, unreal or surreal as it snaps, crackles and pops with musical fireworks. Specialty Music is often riddled with special effects or instrumentation not generally heard in pop, contemporary, disco, Western or other forms of music. Consider the use of cellos, xylophones, synths and soaring strings which all add richness to a soundtrack not found with classical piano or acoustic guitar.

Science documentaries, although educational and awe-inspiring, generally aren’t action-packed and sometimes lack the verve required to move a production confidently along. Engage your viewers and pique their interest. Queue up compelling, inspiring and uplifting background music for your science, technology, wildlife or nature documentary and it’s sure to add an edge to your narrative.
You’ll feel the earth move under your feet with this fanciful assortment of Earthy Music. Score your scene with an earthy soundtrack and add elements of gentleness and passion with the music. Earthy music is a cinch to score to a documentary, nature scene, biography, wedding, tribute, memorial—the options are endless.
Orchestra, strings, and synthesizers figure heavily in SmartSound’s Dramatic Intros, Bumpers, and Stingers collection. These are the hard hitters for conveying weighty drama, or exciting, mysterious suspense.
Electronic synthesizer stars in Movie Logos from album Full Spectrum with a shimmering, pulsating punch that lends a futuristic feel to your production. Variations either build to a climax, start off with a bang and then dissipate, or roll out with a hypnotic repetition.
SmartSound’s orchestral TV music adds depth and dimension to the medium, which can be lighter than big screen movie fare. Call on the orchestra to make any scene majestic or ground it in a certain importance, regardless of the overall tone of the scene, from intensely serious to just barely there.
The foe gathers slowly and stealthily at first in Enemy Swarm with descriptive variations like “Lurk,” “Get Out,” and “Scramble” from Final Countdown. This track is good for the slow buildup of tension, and is designed, like others in the album to create an ominous yet unobtrusive background.
Reality TV Commercial music from SmartSound brings in the desired counterpoint to the alleged true-life drama of the show, either keeping up the same hectic atmosphere, or switching gears completely to keep viewers grounded.
It’s gonna be a great week with Monday from Core Evolution. Everything looks bright in this Alternative Rock uplifter, with clear electric guitar strumming in the front, and “different drummer” guitar solo rockin around in the background.
Downtown Mix brings us a similar tempo with Smooth Ride, a competitive number with more of a Rap/Hip-Hop edge, and a dark inner-city ambience. Graduating from the Shelter might be the title of this Reality TV show.
Commercials are 15-60 second mini-stories that have to get to point in mere seconds, SmartSound TV Commercial Music offers fast and rich scene-setting backgrounds, so you can sell the idea over the course of a few breaths.
Use On My Way-JE from album Jade Element to describe the dreary “before” transportation scene in a TV car commercial with a little angst-infused vocals such as “riding this train till it sets me free.” –then segue to energizing release with the heroic strains of Approaching the Gates, from motivating Will to Succeed. Bold brass, especially trumpet and trombone resurrect vehicular joy with panache
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.
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.
Kids are natural comedians, so kids and comedy songs go hand in hand, especially for home videos, animation, comedies, and video games. Smartsound’s collections of Royalty Free Music for Kids and Comedy Productions run the gamut of wacky possibilities, from sixties cartoon spoofs to rollicking circus numbers and Vintage Comedy tracks.
Whatever the style of cooking demoed in your production, you want to make it seem, well, easy as pie. Smartsound’s Royalty Free Cooking Music keeps it light and upbeat, conveying that all this cooking skill is well within viewers’ reach.
Smartsound’s Royalty Free Science Music echoes such expansiveness, bringing you production choices, often electronic, but always forward-looking, futuristic, and atmospheric.
How lucky are we to be the Melting Pot of the World, as well as the world’s music? There are few global music influences that don’t show up in the ocean of American music somewhere, even if it’s just background for your relaxing dinner at the Italian restaurant, or cooking of the same at home.
One of the challenges of scoring for a reality TV program is the sheer number of different moods you need. At certain times, you will need to infuse a showdown moment with a tense number that heightens the drama without dominating the scene. Other moments may be intimate, romantic or suspenseful. Our uniquely composed Reality Drama TV collection helps you capture the mood of every scene perfectly.
SmartSound Royalty-Free music is perfect for TV, promos and trailers, where the ability to tailor the music message down to the second is paramount. Your sound spot is just as vital as the visuals to persuade and inform in a no-frills time frame.
