Dear fellow creative professional,

My name is Andrew Ingkavet and I created this site as a resource for my fellow creatives.

Way back when I was an Art Director at Digitas and later Creative Director at FCB (now DRAFT/FCB), I was always looking for great music for my work. I was shocked to find few online resources for quality production music.  Being a trained composer/producer, I started creating music for myself, then my teams and soon agency-wide.

An idea formed and since 2004, we’ve been serving the world great visual music that’s royalty free!

How we choose our royalty free music

Our music is all handpicked for quality in composition, structure and production

so you can get on with your work.  

This will save you time instead of weeding out dozens of terrible tracks, you’ll browse stuff that already feels pretty close.

And, most important, it needs to conjure a picture or feeling in your mind.

Our production music is pure emotion that heightens and amplifies your work.

Our music is designed to captivate and build to climax without overpowering your work. It delivers an emotional subtext to your work.

Stock Music?

I’ve never quite liked the term stock music as it gives off the feeling of subpar or something is not quite as good. Our music is used in film productions, web videos, television commercials, Powerpoint and Keynote presentations, animations, student films, project films, video games, websites and more.

It is meant for creative professionals.

Our Clients Big and Small Trust Us

We’ve had the great fortune to work with several Fortune 500 and even Fortune 100 global brands including American Express, MetLife, HP, Compaq, JPMorganChase, Nike, Adobe, MTV, Clairol, Timberland and many many more.

We’ve also been part of the work of many indie filmmakers, authors, start-up entrepreneurs, DIY-ers, bloggers, podcasters, web designers,  animators, corporate videos, trade shows, and YouTube videos.

We hope to have you join us.

Music makes it louder!

What is Royalty Free Music?

You are paying for permission to use our music in your project.

 

Extra Details For Those Who Need To Know Everything:

We can sometimes earn extra money paid by broadcast networks if our music gets placed on television or radio in the USA and additionally in theatrical release in most other territories.

This is not something that you will have to pay extra for as a producer, director, web designer, advertiser, etc. It’s handled by organizations called Performing Rights Societies and inlude ASCAP, BMI and SESAC in the USA. In most other countries there is only one society. For example in Germany it’s GEMA. In the UK it’s PRS.

What makes your music different?

All of our music has been hand-selected for dramatic possibilities. Not every piece of music is appropriate to accompany visual storytelling.

How long can I use the music I purchase here?

After payment, your license entitles you to use the music in perpetuity.  In other words, forever.

You may NOT redistribute or sell or lend or loan the music to anyone else including clients, employers or colleagues, nor can you use it alone apart from a visual medium.

You do not own the music, it is licensed to you. Please review the complete licensing agreement. If you need a multi-user license, or a multi-project license,  please contact us.

 

How do I pay for the music?

Add your track to the cart and you will guided to the Checkout Page.

You can then pay with a credit card, or PayPal.

Then, click on your download link and receive your music in a zipped file.

 

What if I need an invoice for payment by my client?

Contact us for invoiced payment instead.

Do I have to credit 300 Monks in my project?

For most uses, it is not required but would be wonderful.  You may also want to link to us and may want to say something like “Music by 300 Monks.”  We love to give your work publicity too and may even feature it on our site.

For Broadcast, you will need to include “Music by 300 Monks.”

 

 

 

Where does the name 300 Monks come from?

Well, we are NOT a religious organization, and NO we are NOT really monks.

What we are is:

A brotherhood (and sisterhood) of talented Composers, Producers, and Artists living all over the world coming together to make music for moving images.

We just love the idea of a mystical temple somewhere in the forest where 300 people are making music for films, videos, etc.  If we had George Lucas on our side, maybe we could do that one day…

Can I use these sounds and music to create new music to sell?

No. Absolutely not. The license agreement specifically prohibits the use of this music apart from a visual production. This is music for picture.

Why can't I hear the music?

Why can’t I hear the preview music or sound effects?

This is usually one of the following:

  • Did you turn the volume of your computer on?
  • External speakers plugged in and on?
  • Did you plug in your headphones?
  • Do have an old browser that will not accept HTML5?
    (This is not common.  If your machine is bought in the last 7 years or so, you should have it already.)

 

Where are you located?

We’re based in Brooklyn, New York City, USA.

How long has 300 Monks been in business?

The company as it now stands was started in 2004. Before that it was a single composer’s website.

 

What About Refunds?

 

There are NO REFUNDS for any purchases.  Please use the preview files to confirm selection before you purchase.  For full terms and conditions, see our licensing overview page.
