Free Music for Video Makers


We've been getting a few questions about using music in videos again! We're always happy to field questions, but I'd like to share a video of the webinar that Elliot Harmon of Creative Commons and I hosted earlier this year, which will walk you through the basics of using music from the Free Music Archive in your next video production. For more in-depth Q&A, please visit our Video FAQ. If you're just looking for music to use in a video, cruise over to our "Music For Video" curator portal.

Hi FMA'ers! 

If you make videos, or you make music for videos, or you just like learning new stuff, tune in tomorrow to our webinar! We'll be allowing a few guests in to our Hangout and then broadcasting for everyone else. 

The webinar is here, on YouTube

Special guest and Creative Commons expert Elliot Harmon will be co-hosting with Cheyenne. We'll show you around the Free Music Archive (including where to find license and contact info for artists), run through the basics of Creative Commons licenses and how to use CC tracks in videos, and show you how you can license your work under Creative Commons (spoiler: it's easy!). 

We're looking forward to seeing you there! If you can't make it, we'll be archiving the webinars so you can watch later. 

Next week, we'll host one for K-12 teachers, and in early February we'll have one for you musical types.

Studio 11 Free Beats Archive Volume 1- Classic Beats From T.V.'s 'Change Of Heart" Show And More...

As part of the first offering in Studio 11's free beats series we've dug up a selection of beats from our library which happened to appear on Warner Telepictures classic "Change Of Heart" show and other shows in that time. Cleaning out the studio has never been an easy task for us here at Studio 11. In addition to mounds of paper work from days long gone by, we have hard drives and disks filled with droves of material ranging from dance music to hip hop. Seeing that some of the material may have seen its best days, we found no better solution to offer the free beats up via the Free Music Archive and Creative Commons to ensure their lasting enjoyment! In this collection you will find a series of beats that were made in a hip hop tone as backing tracks for television circa early 2000's. You may notice most of the tracks are shorter and tend to "kick" right in. This is preferred amongst video editors for more efficient cuing. The first track "Naturally Smooth" appears on the old production cue sheet above - which we managed to come across while evicting years of paperwork! Fear not! there is more to come...

Music for Video: Horror Soundtrack Music for Producers

Leanne Surfleet/Flickr

After you've wiped all the makeup off your zombie actor friends, it's time for the real scarey part -- picking out music for your Horror flick. Music to Video has assembled a mix that will send shivers down your spine, make all the ghouls dance, and get grandma to climb out of her grave, just to tell you to turn down the volume.

Here's a trick! Try mixing these tracks with the Prelinger Archives for a real treat. May I suggest their footage of a Halloween Party or Experiments in the Revival of Organisms


1. Lee Rosevere (website, CC BY-NC-SA) - The music has a heavy-handed foreboding feeling, as if it was used in a lost episode of David Lynch's Twin Peaks.

2. The Waiters (website, CC BY) - Ticking clocks set the rhythm of this track, before it enters the Twilight Zone. Dark guitars emerge about halfway through.

3. Kevin MacLeod (website, CC BY) - Classical music for your next gala affair in an empty castle, with a ghostly guestlist.

4. Weirdomusic (website, CC BY-NC-SA) - Wet music for inside the lab of a mad scientist.

5. Vitus Von Degen (website, CC BY-NC-SA) - Baron Vitus Von Degen is a German composer who lives on a Grecian island. Inspired by John Carpenter and Goblin music, he produces soundtracks for movies still awaiting to be shot. The first 20 seconds of this track are a movie of their own.

6. Kreng (website, CC BY-NC-SA) - Dark electronic music meets jazz. A child whispers the command, "Go to sleep. Go to sleep. Go to sleep, little baby."

7. Black Math (website, CC BY) - Black Math is a trio from Chicago making lo-fi darkwave. Good music for a skeleton race on fixed gear bicycles through Pilsen.
