For our latest Music for Video selection, we offer a wintery mix of instrumental tracks perfect for your projects. The first half features a light dusting of gentle piano sounds full of nostalgia As the mix grows into a full on blizzard, the tracks turn more dissonent and stressful, like a tree heavy with ice leaning over your roof. We hope this free mix helps kick off an exciting new year of projects.

2. Dexter Britain (website, CC BY-NC-SA) - A song so epic and full of feelings that it elevates the emotional significance of any footage or dialoge you place alongside it. This track is a producers 6-minute long fantasy, and the tour de force of a true soundtrack master. Permissions beyond the scope of this license may be available on Britain's website.
3. Aestrid Byrne (website, CC BY-SA) - An elegant and thoughtful song written and performed on toy piano from Byrne's room in a Santiago clinic. Because her room could not accommodate a baby grand or upright piano, the toy piano was a tool-of-circumstance. She died in 1998, one month after making her album Laterna.

"Quincas" is part of the soundtrack of Brazilian film Quincas Berro Dágua, based on a novel from Brazilian author Jorge Amado, originally named "A Morte e a Morte de Quincas Berro d'Água." I've never seen the film, but the book... actually, the author, is one of my favorites.
The story happens in the Northeastern state of Bahia - from where the writer is from; a place full of beaches and known for a society of very calm and easy-going people. Quincas, the main character, lives a low-profile life until one day, fed up of his own style, decides to let loose and enjoy life. He dies twice, and that's basically all I can say without spoiling it.
I came across this soundtrack from well known Brazilian composer and producer Beto Villares and thought this song was beautiful. Very representative for those who know the character. Very easy to listen to if you're just browsing around, searching for some new music.

The key for listening to this November Compilation of Brazilian songs is to... wait for the unexpected.
Even though there are a lot of different styles in this group of tracks (rock, trip-hop, electronic, hip-hop, cumbia, carimbó, experimental, instrumental), we can say that almost all of them do a great job of playing around with the rhythm and order of things. If the first 20 seconds of the track are not exactly your style, wait for the next 20 seconds, and it will probably change drastically.

Aaron Ximm's work as Quiet American showcases an extreme attention to the audible environment with a massive collection of over 90 hours of field recordings available for free download under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike license. With many more unreleased recordings, these sounds follow Aaron's travels around Vietnam, Fiji, Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, and Nepal.
This release sees Ximm going in a slightly different direction - an album of instrumental pieces played on the Hang, an instrument similiar to a steel drum, made from two sheets of pitched steel. The sound is ethereal and meditative, a unique and fitting addition to his cannon of recordings.
