Most popular style library music making money
Ever wondered whether you are targeting your music at the right audience or the most popular style library music making money right now?
After pondering whether to take the odd break from my creative masterpieces and aim for some more commercial appeal to make some cash from doing what I love best, I came across this fantastic article which scientifically analyses the highest selling library music tracks to see what style library music makes money.
As a fellow music producer for media, you should find this article quite intriguing.
To summarise the key findings in the article, in case you are short of time: Go for corporate, motivational categories in a key of D major at around 130bpm.
Keep the instrumentation simple and basic – e.g. ukuleles, bells, pianos, guitars and between 2.30 and 3.00 minutes in length.
Here is a link to the research performed by a fellow library music producer, which explains the concept in more detail:
How to write a corporate motivational track that sells
Here is an incredibly intense piece of music for you to use for free in your media production.
All I ask is that you give me a credit in your work.
This tune is heavily influenced by the 28 days later and kick-ass soundtracks, which is where the cheeky name “Kick Ass Zombies” comes from.
Kick Ass Zombies starts off quiet and haunting. A repeating far away piano riff opens the instrumental piece and is joined by acoustic drums and strummed guitar. Just as you are drifting into the characterful chord progression, the distorted guitar hits you in the face and all hell lets loose as the zombies set chase and you will run for your life.
Definately not for the faint hearted. Listed with caution!
If you’re new to my music, and would like to hear a range of pieces, old to new, and in a variety of styles – a great way to immerse yourself in my sonic world is to listen to my 30 minute podcast.

Here is a great site I would like to share with you.
After several hours of trawling the web in search of quality images, which are available for use in our artist websites, I finally ended up with the page below.
I’m sure you will find this recommended link as useful as I did and provide you with free images for music websites created by you.
A lot of the photographs and art used on my website come from here, and you can see that they are of a very professional standard and add a great sense of atmosphere and imagery for the music they have been used to represent.
I hope you find the free resource as useful as I did. Post comments below if you can recommend other useful sites for adding imagery to our productions.
Royalty Free Holiday Music – right here and available totally for free..
This is a nice, easy going, relaxed piece of music which is ideal for use in a background to a summer holiday video. Possibly an advert for a hotel resort, or backing for your romantic holiday pictures.
Whatever the case – you can have this one completely for free. No charges at all to use this piece in your media publications. If you have the opportunity, please just credit me and link to my web page.
In this Royalty Free Holiday music you will find a nice relaxed vibe. The chilled out groove is pushed along by ethnic table percussion and features a sweet soothing electric guitar melody played entirely by me.
Along with the guitar and percussion, additional backing is provided by soprano choirs and a solo tenor.
As I said before, all completely for free and legal. Nobody will come looking for copyright infringement or asking for cash if you use this song.
This piece was first published in my Lord-Of-The-Rings concept album, and it is entirely original and offered here for use with no cost.
The original piece was meant to set the scene for Aragorn and Arwen meeting in Rivendell.
Please credit me if you do happen to this royalty free holiday music:

Shadow of the Beast Soundtrack
Check out my remix of the Shadow of the Beast Soundtrack right here. Just click on the player below to listen to the full version of this cover version of the epic video game music. No sign-up or loopholes, here it is ready for your enjoyment.
Credit goes to Dave Whittaker the composer of the original piece. This will bring back memories of that golden gaming era of the commodore Amiga.
Unfortunately you cannot license or use in your productions. It is a cover version of the ‘Shadow of the Beast’ soundtrack from the classic 90s video game. I do not own any rights to the composition at all, and so I am unable to offer it for further use in your own productions. In fact, I’m just hoping Dave Whittaker is okay with me making this remix available for you to listen to (I’m sure he will be, he commented on my youtube video for the music once).
I created this version a few years ago, to see how it would sound using modern and big sample libraries. Suprisingly the original version still holds up well considering it made use of the SID chip on the commodore amiga and took up less size that an average twitter post to store in memory.
See what you think. Check it out here:
