About Music for Video

Here's the latest volume of the FMA's Tracks to Sync series of Creative Commons music mixes curated with the online video producer in mind! The FMA hosts music that wants to be shared under a range of licenses, and while some cannot be used in a video without permission from the artist because they have the "NoDerivatives" clause, the tracks in this mix can on terms that range from Attribution-only (CC BY) to Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike (CC BY-NC-SA). If you're new to the site, you can read more in our FAQ and at Creative Commons' website.
Most of the artists in this mix offer more tracks on the FMA or beyond, so if you like what you hear you can dig deeper. You can also reach out to most artists directly via their homepage or FMA profile if you would like to license their music beyond the scope of the CC license, and whenever you use an artist's music we recommend sending them a link to the work they helped inspire by leaving a comment — they'll be happy to hear from you!
Broke For Free is the beatmaking alias of Santa Cruz CA's Tom Casino, and "Something Elated" has been climbing up the FMA charts propelled largely by his progressive approach to licensing (Creative Commons BY).
Chris Zabriskie recently joined the FMA with 50 Creative Commons BY-NC tracks, and his music has been included in films showcased at festivals such as Art Basel Miami 2011 and in New York, Los Angeles, Singapore, and Costa Rica. (Creative Commons BY-NC)
