  1. Hi everyone, Here’s a brand new music track for you: On my City/Urban page: ON THE PROWL WITH CAPED CRUSADER CAT – Wandering the midnight streets, searching for wrong-doers. https://soundimage.org/city-urban-2/ I’m also working to build up the ambience section of my site…so here are some cool new ambiences on my AMB - Sci-Fi Ambience page: MACHINE DREAMS – I wonder what it’s dreaming about? This might sound nice to create an eerie, weird-feeling environment or situation. MYSTERIOUS AMBIENCE – This one might work for an alien underwater environment…or perhaps something else. https://soundimage.org/amb-sci-fi-ambience/ If you find my work helpful, please consider making a donation to my website. The synthesizers I use to create the music and sounds that I share with everyone are very expensive…so expensive, in fact, that I have to make monthly payments on them…and donations really help me a lot to pay for them. Thanks in advance…and please feel free to share your projects…I love to see how creative people are using my work!
  2. Hey there, I’ve posted some more wild cartoon-style texture images derived from glass objects: TXR – GLASS – Cartoon https://soundimage.org/txr-glass-cartoon/ As always, please remember that they are meant to be building blocks rather than polished textures, so feel free to edit / alter / mash / etc., as needed. Don’t forget to check out my learning series that teaches environmental responsibility in a fun way through stories and characters. The premise is this: How can we expect children to be the future stewards of the Earth if they don’t feel connected to it?? Please share with family, friends, teachers or anyone who might find it useful. https://soundimage.org/dunes-island/ Have a good week!
  3. Greetings Earth People, This week’s new music tracks are: On my Sci-Fi 7 page: "INVASION!" – They’re heading this way! Run for your life! Aliens? Zombies? Slimy monsters? Something else entirely? https://soundimage.org/sci-fi-7/ On my Funny 6 page: “PARTY GHOULS” - Rockin’ it in their haunted party mansion. This track might be fun in a goofy Halloween-themed game or something like that. https://soundimage.org/funny-6/ And two tracks on my Positive / Upbeat page: "OF SUMMERS GONE BY" – Here’s a high energy 80’s-style piece with a sweet, slightly magical feel that might sound nice in a game, video or perhaps something else. CAREFREE DAYS AT PELICAN SHORES – Carefree and creative…bouncing around town without a worry in the world. Wouldn’t that be great? https://soundimage.org/positive-upbeat/ All are free to use, as always, with attribution. If anyone has kids or younger siblings, I've created a fun environmental learning series that (I hope) will engage them through stories and characters. The organization I made it for uses the films all the time, and I'm sharing them with the rest of the world. Please feel free to check them out and share with friends, parents, teachers or anyone else who might find them helpful. https://soundimage.org/dunes-island/ Keep being creative and have a good weekend!
  4. Greetings fellow creatives, I’ve posted new cartoon-style texture images here: TXR – GLASS – Cartoon Some wild textures here… https://soundimage.org/txr-glass-cartoon/ TXR – METAL – Cartoon Some dirty metal textures… https://soundimage.org/txr-metal-cartoon/ TXR – ROCK/STONE – Cartoon https://soundimage.org/txr-rockstone-cartoon/ Please keep in mind that they are meant to be building blocks rather than polished textures, so feel free to edit / alter / mash / etc., as needed. Btw, if you happen to have kids (or know someone who does) I’ve created a learning series that teaches them environmental stewardship in a fun way through stories and characters. It was my first try at making films with a DSLR…(they can be very challenging to work with in the field)…but I think they came out pretty well. The organization I made them for was very happy with them and uses the films all the time…hopefully others can benefit from them as well. Please feel free to share with family, friends, teachers or anyone you know who might find them useful. https://soundimage.org/dunes-island/ Enjoy!
  5. Another super busy week…ugh…but I did manage to get a couple of new tracks done. Free as always to use with attribution: On my Horror/Surreal page, we have: CREEPY ACTION – (Looping) – This track might sound cool in a quick moving horror game…or perhaps something else that combines action with creepiness. It came out pretty well…if you need something like this, give it a try. https://soundimage.org/horrorsurreal/ On my Puzzle Music 4 page: CRYSTAL PUZZLES – (Looping) – This track might sound nice in, well, a puzzle game involving crystals….or perhaps other shimmering objects, light rays, etc. It has a techno feel to it as well. Should sound pretty cool under sound fx. https://soundimage.org/puzzle-music-4/ Btw, if anyone happens to have kids (or know someone who does) I’ve created a learning series that teaches them environmental stewardship in a fun way through stories and characters.

  7. Happy May! Here are this week’s brand new music tracks. Free as always to use with attribution: On my City/Urban 2 page, we have: SAFE CRACKING – (Standard and Looping) – This piece might be fun in a crime-based game or film. (2:19) https://soundimage.org/city-urban-2/ On my Puzzle Music 4 page: GAME WORLD BUILDERS – (Looping) – Here’s a track that’s kind of mechanical sounding and dreamy at the same time. Perhaps for a construction-based puzzle game? (:57) https://soundimage.org/puzzle-music-4/ And on my Sci-Fi 7 page: ENEMY INFILTRATION – (Looping) – This track has a grungy techno feel and might sound cool under interior battle scenes or other things. Maybe aboard a star cruiser? Or in an alien city? (1:32) https://soundimage.org/sci-fi-7/ Enjoy!
  8. I can’t believe April is almost over already. Anyhow, I have some cool new cartoon-style texture images ready on these pages: TXR – BARK - Cartoon https://soundimage.org/txr-bark-cartoon/ TXR – GROUND – Cartoon https://soundimage.org/txr-ground-cartoon/ TXR – ROCK/STONE – Cartoon https://soundimage.org/txr-rockstone-cartoon/ Please keep in mind that they are meant to be building blocks rather than polished textures, so feel free to edit / alter / mash / etc., as needed. Enjoy!
  9. Greetings, Here are this week’s new tracks. Free to use with attribution: MAGICAL BACKSTORY – (Looping) – This might sound nice under the menus, backstory, etc., in a mystical fantasy game, RPG or maybe a visual novel. https://soundimage.org/fantasy-8/ DRIFTING AWAY IN PUZZLE LAND – (Looping) – Sometimes…(actually lots of times)…I wish I could do just that. Anyhow, this is a variation of one of my other themes. https://soundimage.org/puzzle-music-4/ FUTURE FUNK – (Looping) – Here’s a grungy looping piece with a mechanical feel and a funky vibe that might sound cool in a sci-fi game of some kind. https://soundimage.org/dance-techno/ Enjoy!
  10. New cartoon-style texture images are ready here: TXR – BRICK - Cartoon https://soundimage.org/txr-brick-cartoon/ TXR – CONCRETE / PAVEMENT - Cartoon https://soundimage.org/txr-concrete-pavement-cartoon/ TXR – GROUND – Cartoon https://soundimage.org/txr-ground-cartoon/ TXR – METAL – Cartoon https://soundimage.org/txr-metal-cartoon/ TXR – WOOD – Cartoon https://soundimage.org/txr-wood-cartoon/ I hope some of them come in handy!
  11. Hey guys, Here are this week’s new tracks. Free to use with attribution. Enjoy! 8-BIT ANTICS – Maybe for a cute retro-2D game? Or something else? https://soundimage.org/chiptunes-3/ THE ANT HILL GANG SADDLES UP AGAIN – And they’re off…the most incompetent gang to ever (attempt to) ride across the west. They’ll probably get lost. Anyhow, this might be fun in a comedic western-themed piece. https://soundimage.org/funny-6/ TECHNO RANDOMNESS – Unlike many of my tracks that are built layer by layer, this one was done “live” (in real-time) by improvising with two of my synths at the same time. Perhaps useful in some kind of wacky technology-based puzzle game? https://soundimage.org/puzzle-music-4/ DYSTOPIAN SUNSET – Perched atop a mile-high structure, the machine-being stares out over the shimmering grid, wondering what the night will bring. https://soundimage.org/sci-fi-7/
  12. Another busy weekend, but I managed to get some more fantasy textures done. You’ll find them here: TXR – BRICK https://soundimage.org/txr-brick/ TXR – ROCK/STONE 2 https://soundimage.org/txr-rockstone-2/ I’ll have a bunch of cool new music tracks coming out on Wednesday so be sure to check my music thread. Enjoy!
  13. Greetings! I have some new free tracks in the Fantasy genre as well as Chiptunes: “ETHEREA” – If only places like this actually existed. Anyhow, this might sound nice in a fantasy game, visual novel or perhaps something else. soundimage.org/fantasy-8 “ARCADE SPACE ADVENTURES” – For just a quarter…those were the days…(I’ve been getting nostalgic for coin-op games.) Anyhow, I did this track “on the fly”…it might be fun in a 2D retro game of some kind. Enjoy! soundimage.org/chiptunes-3 “FUNKY PIXELTOWN” – Overflowing with characters who are just too cool for words…(at least in their own minds.) soundimage.org/chiptunes-3 Hope you’re having a good week!
  14. I had a very busy weekend, but I managed to get some new fantasy textures done. Possibly useful for VFX or maybe other things. First up, some seamless bumpy stone textures that look like they could be covered with moss, algae or maybe lichens. These might look cool for pathways. They are here: TXR – GROUND https://soundimage.org/txr-ground/ Here are some cool stained glass textures that might look nice for windows of churches or other fantasy structures…maybe for RPGs. They are here: TXR – GLASS https://soundimage.org/txr-glass/ New music tracks will be coming out later in the week. Enjoy!
  15. Happy April Everyone, This week’s new free tracks are a mixed bag of music, user interface sound effects and ambiences, so: MUSIC: On my Positive / Upbeat page, we have: “Carefree Days in Groovyville” https://soundimage.org/positive-upbeat/ SOUND EFFECTS: On my SFX – User Interface page: UI_Quirky 36 - 38 https://soundimage.org/sfx-ui/ AMBIENCES: On my AMB – Suburban Ambience page: “Night Ambience” “Early Morning Ambience” https://soundimage.org/amb-suburban-ambience/ I hope some of my work is helpful in your projects!
