Intros (which are also exits) are the bookends of a video or video game. They provide a sense of continuity, much like a fiction story in which the first line is the same as the last line. Bumps, on the other hand, serve the same purpose but are used between scenes - a hard edge that quickly reinforces that something new is about to happen. And of course, stingers are essentially 1-3 second sound clips used to emphasize what was just said in the video or game (“Doh!”)

It can be hard to find Suspenseful Intros, Bumps and Stingers, but with SmartSound’s royalty-free music search, much of that work can be done in seconds rather than hours. In seconds you can find great tracks that can be customized by length and mood to suit the needs of any suspenseful scene.

Producers desiring an unusual, unique or campy edge often turn to experimental background music with its uncharacteristic grooves to enhance their creations. Experimental music often incorporates dubstep music that’s often syncopated or accented with a strong pulsating bass line, a driving percussive beat and a super-fast 140 beats per minute. Experimental music is in a genre of its own as composers continually create and transform music in extraordinarily unusual ways.

Suspenseful Suspenseful Royalty Free Music from SmartSound brings up the anxiety with pulsating electronica or somber strings, with a little Secret Agent thrown in.

Aptly named for the product line that keeps us all in suspense, iPulse from Ambient Pulse provides a futuristic atmosphere so subtle it almost seems to be not there, like the addiction you keep trying to forget (not a chance!) Science videos, or suspense projects needing an electronic edge are good spots for this synthesizer piece.

mystical By definition “mystical” relates to religious mysticism, or to inspiring mystery, awe or fascination. SmartSound Mystical Royalty Free Music echoes the spiritual ties to exotic, unfamiliar lands with its 68 tracks of primarily New Age-style music.

Angelic strings in Ancient Cities create a sense of peace and wonder ideal for Meditation or Spoken Word/Narration projects. The expansive track from Distant Worlds gives no hint where in time we might be, in the distant past, or the distant future, looking back at the cities of today. Fear is unknown in the magical world evoked.

Travel and Documentary projects are good locations for Ethnic Ensemble background from World Tour, Mystical Karma. Consisting of quiet East Indian percussive variations, it flows with hypnotic ease in World style.
