Dana Boulé: "We All Need To Calm Down"

Chilling for real: this photo of reindeer is from flickr/the Preus Museum

[Guest Post by Dana Boulé, edited & shared by cheyenne_h]

Part film score, part folk, and part spacious meditation, We All Need To Calm Down is Dana Boulé’s homage to the calm, the quiet and to solitude. Eight musicians from around the world collaborated to make this soundtrack for the mindful.

The album, which is almost exactly an hour long, is all the instrumental tracks from her last album for meditation. You can listen to a few of its tracks below, or visit the album page for the full release.

The album is CC BY-NC-ND, so any commercial or derivative uses should be cleared with Dana first, but feel free to use it to relax, reflect, and chill out.

FMA: A Resource for Video Producers

YouTuber and online video tutorial-producer PremiereGal gave FMA a shout-out on her latest video about places to find music for videos. She's also rockin' our 2016 fundraiser shirt!

She also mentions a blog entry that gives a quick run-down of the licenses and whether or not they're suitable for video, which you can find here. As always, we encourage everyone to read the licenses carefully and contact the artist if you're in doubt, but don't let that stop you from utilizing all that our archive has to offer!

OK, enough about us. Here's the video!


You can find more of PremiereGal's tutorials and updates at her website.
