I particularly like "Dreaming of Fuji". A clever variation of "Sakura" which would have been useful in a part of a project I did while wandering around the park surrounding the Imperial Palace in Tokyo. In fact I used the traditional "Sakura" at the start of that as it was cherry blossom time in Japan. But there were one or two slightly strange things in the park where your variation would have formed a nice counterpoint to the traditional tune. Well done yet again, Eric! :D

Hi there Eric! I'm a long time lurker and finally decided to sign up. I wanted to say that I'm a huge fan of your work!

As for this week's tracks I especially love "Chasing Villains". It has this great feel of suspense and mystery and it builds up very nicely and smoothly. I could easily see it being used in some mystery drama or even in a sci-fi production.

Keep up the good work!

Hi Everyone,

This week's new free tracks are a lot of fun. We have:

"THE ARCADE SPACEMAN" – (Looping) – In the year 20 billion! …Okay, maybe 1982. …Anyhow, this might be fun in a space game or app.
It lives on my Chiptunes 2 page:
https://soundimage.org/chiptunes-2/

"OVER THE POLAR MOUNTAIN" – (Looping) – The child dreams of the tiny train, under icy moonlight, making its way across the great polar North. It struggles up the enormous mountain, finally reaches the top and then chugs down the other side.

"OF DREAMS AND GAMES" – (Looping) – Might sound nice under the intro screens for a mystical RPG or fantasy-based game.
Both are on my Fantasy 8 page:
https://soundimage.org/fantasy-8/

"THE PLASTERED PELICAN BAR AND GRILLE" – Filled with an assortment of rowdy birds, this dockside bar is quite a spectacle on Friday nights. Come to think of it, it’s a spectacle on any night.
The wild festivities are on my Funny 5 page:
https://soundimage.org/funny-5/

"BOT BUILDERS" – (Looping) – Creating cities of tomorrow?
on my Technology 2 page:
https://soundimage.org/technology-2/

As always, if anyone is interested in checking out some of the projects I've custom scored, you can find a brief list here with links:
https://soundimage.org/custom-work/

Enjoy!

CITY BENEATH THE WAVES – (New Looping Version) - Out of the murky blue, it emerges…unlike anything ever seen before. Might work in a fantasy piece, a game, or even a nature doc.

MAGIC OCEAN_v001 – (Standard and Looping) - Added ocean ambience. Could work nicely in a fantasy game, nature doc, etc.
https://soundimage.org/fantasywonder/

On my Sci-Fi 7 page:

LOST AND FALTERING – (New Looping Version) - In the dead of night, the machine-being wanders the rain-soaked streets, trying to find its way back home.

Enjoy...and let me know if you need some custom tracks created! :-)

Thanks yet again Eric. But you might want to correct the missing link in CITY BENEATH THE WAVES.

I'm also not sure about Palin' around Paris. As an ex-diplomat, I have lived in various parts of Europe, including Paris. Yet I find nothing really French about that piece. To me it sounds a bit oom-pah and thus a bit more German. If you want a French-related title, I would have thought "Strollin' in the Rain in Strasbourg" might be more accurate.

Sorry to sound so critical. You know I love a lot of your music, and admire your tenacity in producing it. But that one just didn't work for me... :cry: :oops:

I haven't said this in a while, so I'd like to send out a heartfelt thank you to the kind folks who have shown support and donated to my efforts. Not only are your donations helping to pay for the site, but they are also helping to pay for a new synthesizer that will enable me to explore and create music for you in lots of new styles...(at least for me)...like:

Rock
Pop / Retro Pop
R&B
Country
Jazz
Latin
Classical
Folk
Holiday
and lots more.

One of the most gratifying things for me is when people write and tell me that one of my tracks inspired them to create a new game, film or other work of their own. I hope that some of these new musical styles will help you to expand the boundaries of your creativity!

As I explore and familiarize myself with this new synth, I'm also continuing my project to create looping versions of my existing tracks...I hope they are helpful, especially for my game / VN developer friends as well as my drone pilot friends.

That said, here are this week's new free tracks:

On my Action page:

"SELF DESTRUCT SEQUENCE" (Looping)
https://soundimage.org/action/


Two new tracks on my Aerial/Drone page:

"CARIBBEAN SKIES" – (Looping) and
"SOARING OVER THE HEARTLAND" (Looping)
https://soundimage.org/aerial-drone/


On my City/Urban pages we have:

"WINTER ALLEYS" (Looping) and
https://soundimage.org/city-urban/

"THE STREET MUSICIAN" (Looping)
https://soundimage.org/city-urban-2/


And on my Techno page:

"MAYHEM" (Looping)
https://soundimage.org/dance-techno/


Keep being creative!

Thanks Eric -- you might want to edit the location of The Street Musician (which I really like) as it is on City/Urban 2, not just City/Urban.
