    Hey guys,

    If anyone is interested, I was recently asked to do an interview for a really cool website called Exilian. The site helps facilitate all kinds of creative projects. Here’s a link if anyone wants to check it out:

    https://exilian.co.uk/articles.php

    I hope my answers are entertaining and (somewhat) intelligent…lol. Please feel free to share!

    That said, this week’s new free tracks are:

    On my History page:

    ANCIENT TIMES – (Looping) – Perhaps for a history-themed game?
    https://soundimage.org/ancient/

    On my Sci-Fi 8 page:

    ESCAPE FROM CYBERPUNK CITY – This piece might sound cool in a dystopic urban-based project.
    https://soundimage.org/sci-fi-8/

    And on my AMB - Urban Ambience page, some really nice large city street ambience:

    STREET CORNER_5-30 – Trucks, taxis, horns, people talking, distant brakes squeaking, cyclist passes, etc.

    STREET CORNER_5-29 – Scooter idles at corner, traffic passes, brakes squeak, baby heard, air brakes from truck, people talking, trucks pass, distant brakes squeak, etc.

    Enjoy and keep being creative!

    Greetings!

    I’ve had a number of requests for uncompressed versions of my tracks, so I’ve begun making them available on Gumroad for a small free to help support the site. The MP3 files that I make freely available sound very good, but the original uncompressed WAV files sound really incredible…give them a try!

    If anyone is curious as to why I didn’t upload WAV files to begin with, the reason is that my web hosting service places limitations on file sizes and WAV files tend to be very large.

    Anyhow, it’s going to take some time to upload everything, so if anyone has any requests for WAV versions of tracks you happen to like, just drop me an email and I’ll upload them to Gumroad for you. Feel free to convert to Ogg or any format you like.

    That said, this week’s new free tracks are:

    On my Sci-Fi 8 page:

    EMERGING ALIEN CIVILIZATIONS – (Looping) – As they become industrialized, hopefully they won’t make the same mistakes we have.

    https://soundimage.org/sci-fi-8/

    And on my AMB - Urban Ambience page, more large city street ambience:

    STREET CORNER_M-30 – Traffic, distant sirens, pedestrians, someone whistles, trucks passing, talking, horns, etc.
    STREET CORNER_M30_2 – Noisy traffic passes, pedestrians, talking, distant brakes squeak, etc.

    https://soundimage.org/amb-urban-ambience/

    Enjoy!

    OGG MUSIC UPDATE:

    Super high-quality Ogg files are now available for every track on my Fantasy 1 page as well as my Sci-Fi/Space page. And for about half of the tracks on my Looping Music page and my Horror/Surreal page. They sound amazing…almost as good as uncompressed WAV files…give them a try if they work in your projects.

    Meanwhile, if anyone has requests for Ogg versions of tracks that you happen to like but aren’t on the site yet, just let me know and I’ll be happy to upload them for you.

    That said, I have a couple of band new free tracks ready:

    On my Funny 6 page:
    SEWER SHENANIGANS – (Looping) – Maybe for humorous monsters underground…or funny criminals up to who-knows-what down there.
    https://soundimage.org/funny-6/

    On my Puzzle Music 4 page:
    CYBER LIGHT CHASE – (Looping) – Perhaps for a faster-paced puzzle game? Or maybe something else?
    https://soundimage.org/puzzle-music-4/

    Enjoy!

    As Halloween approaches, I thought I’d focus this month on creating new tracks that might be useful in Halloween-themed projects (or horror, etc.)

    That said, all of this week’s new tracks are on my Horror/Surreal Page:

    SHATTERED MIND – Surreal and disturbing, this could be used in all kinds of nightmarish things I’m sure. Easy to loop as well.

    WELCOME TO THE MANSION – A haunted mansion that is. Muah hah hah!

    SHATTERED REALITY – Another surrealistic piece. Might sound cool in a sci-fi project, too.

    https://soundimage.org/horrorsurreal/

    All of my tracks are 100% free to use with attribution. Enjoy!

    Happy Thursday!

    Here are this week’s new tracks…100% free to use with attribution:

    “MYSTICAL HIGHLANDS” – (Looping) – Perhaps atop faraway mountains where the clouds drift below you. Or maybe in the quiet alleyways of an ancient city.
    https://soundimage.org/fantasy-9/

    Here are a couple new music tracks that might work for Halloween projects…or perhaps other things:

    "CREEPY HOLLOW" - Will you venture into the mist-filled forest? This track loops easily, btw.
    https://soundimage.org/dark-ominous-2/

    “THE ATTIC OF SECRETS” – (Looping) – A dark, drafty place filled with long-forgotten things. What will you find?
    https://soundimage.org/fantasy-9/

    Have a good weekend…and keep being creative!

    Anyhow, to honor this ghoulish holiday, I’ve compiled a list of about 100 of my music tracks that might work for your Halloween parties, events, haunted houses, projects and other things. Make a mix of them if you’d like!

    Here’s a link to the page with the list:

    Well, I’m up to 1,960 tracks…it’s hard to believe…I might actually reach 2,000 by the end of the year! Anyhow, I just wanted to send out a big THANK YOU to those of you who have showed your support for my work and my website…your contributions have allowed me to make my monthly payments on my synths. They are all top-of-the-line instruments and I think it’s reflected in the quality of the sound they put out.

    The whole point of my soundimage project was to make good-sounding music available to anyone regardless of their budget…and it’s definitely working thanks to you!

    I’ve been spending time learning my newest synth which will enable me to create tracks in genres that I haven’t done before. I’ll let you know as I open new pages on my site to release them.

    In the meantime, here’s what’s new this week:

    A brand new music track on my Action 3 page:

    FUNKY RUNNIN’ – (Looping) – Maybe for a funky endless runner game?
    https://soundimage.org/action-3/

    Some cool electronic sound fx on my new SFX – Electronic page:

    ELECTRONIC STATIC and TELEPHONE STATIC – Perhaps for situations where communications have been knocked out. (They actually sound pretty cool.)
    https://soundimage.org/sfx-electronic/

    On my SFX – Creepy page:

    EERIE INDUSTRIAL DRONE – (to add to my other creepy drones.)
    https://soundimage.org/sfx-creepy/

    And on my SFX – Environments page:

    UNDERWATER RUMBLE – Maybe for deep sea environments?
    https://soundimage.org/sfx-environments/

    Have a great week!
