Staff Picks of Favorite Ambient Royalty Free Music Soundtracks

Ambient Production Music Library

A magical place always has a sound element...

Ambience is that special touch of something.  It’s a Je ne c’est quoi, the special atmosphere in the room, the space.  Ambience is invisible, but you can hear it and feel it.  If you think of those special spaces where you felt deeply connected, there’s an aural element, whether it’s the sound of the reflected noise or the wind or colored by a slight music that is just ever so there.

These are some of our favorite tracks out of our many handpicked curated collection of ambient music.  They pay attention to NOT draw attention to themselves.  They make your visuals absolutely fabulous, invisibly.

Enjoy!

How Hollywood Selects Music For Film

This is a portion of a panel from the Music In Film Summit 2010. Obviously this case study example, Despicable Me, is out of the budget range of almost all independent filmmakers, but it does give an idea of all the behind the scenes things that are necessary to select and create music for a film.

Unfortunately, we don’t see the shot with and without the music, but listening to the discussion gives a broad overview of how composers and music supervisors approach storytelling aspect. I always think of scoring film as sort of like taking a big gigantic AUDIO HIGHLIGHTER through the script which I use in multiple colors to draw attention and manipulate the emotions of the audience.

This is mostly about the relationship aspect of making a film work with building a good creative team which includes Director, Producer, Composer and Music Supervisor.

Have you written a suspense filled thriller?  A novel that begs for attention?  You need a commercial – even just a web video?  Every film has a trailer and nowadays every book needs a trailer too.  Good luck trying to get your publisher to pay for and create one.  But, lucky for you, we have tons of great music for you to choose from to make your simple homemade video or even a powerpoint presentation into a thrilling trailer for your bestseller.

If these aren’t enough, you can check out a collection of Suspense Music.
