Mystery Groove – Stock Music loop for Detective Shows

This week, we dive in to the genre of detective mysteries. Our royalty free music pick of the week is a short little stock music track by Matthew Anklan called Mystery Groove (track ID 387379). Without sounding dated, this production music track features four trumpets and rhythm section, complete with note bends, harmon mutes, and a delightfully funky beat and bass line.

The looped groove is perfect for comedy, mystery, and investigative shows, and immediately gave us images of the Pink Panther, Inspector Gadget, Mr. Monk, Sean Spencer, and other famously wacky television detectives. We combined this track with a stock footage clip ID 74853, which is a shot of a forrest road winding through some pretty dense fog. The video, also available for download at Productiontrax, adds to the mysterious yet almost comical flare of this music track. We think this piece will work equally well as a soundtrack for children’s projects or advertising.

Great Expectations – Wintery Royalty Free Production Music

Winter might be on the thaw, but you can instill that icy chill into any multimedia project with this week’s royalty free production music pick of the week, Great Expectations. With choirs, bells, and orchestral strings, this track has a layer of intrigue and motivation that combines with sounds traditionally heard during the cold winter months to create a character all of its own.

It sort of reminds us of a Harry Potter sequence — a dark sinister stroll through enchanted woods, or in the deep recesses of a medieval castle. A suitable theme for an evil villain, sorcerer, or fantasy role playing game, this piece has moments of huge muiscal epic-ness and quiet contemplation (or brooding). But don’t let that pidgeon hole you to the fantasy genre. Ad campaigns for companies ranging from security systems to banks and insurance companies could find creative use for these tracks. We feel a sports car commercial would probably make great use of this production music track.

For our pick of the week video, we paired this short piece with stock footage of nighttime snow and fog filmed from a moving car in an eerily empty parking lot. Notice how the creepy feel transfers over to the second stock footage clip, establishing a winter scene haunted farm, demonstrating the music’s versatility.

The Art of Dreaming Up an Ambient Royalty Free Music Film Score

Texture is a necessity in your audio when creating quality film scores and soundtracks. This week’s royalty free music pick of the week is a beautifully horrifying collection of sound and stock audio layers that could easily be a track of all trades (so to speak). Whether creating a mellow, hypnotic soundscape or something a little more scary, this nifty little piece of production music has the texture you need, adding depth and suspense to any project.

For this week’s pick, we’ve paired The Art of Dreaming by Russell Harris (track ID 388196) with a serene stock footage clip of a sunset over the ocean (footage ID 234247). The piece is a sad and reflective contemporary piano track, evolving into a dreamlike mood of isolation and confusion with haunting strings and electronic textures. The pristine and calming nature of the footage matches the ambient and spacey soundscape provided by the first 45 seconds of the track. Like any good soundtrack, however, the music turns dark and foreboding at 0:45, and we highlighted this with a quick shift in the video effects (ok, so we used the same effect again… but it looks so good!). The result, however cookie cutter, is haunting.

We heartily recommend this production music track for reflective underscores in TV drama, fantasies, and games. It would also fit well in documentaries and mysteries.
