The Free Music Archive is full of interesting finds, but some of them are easier to find than others. I was recently chatting with a talented animator, who told me she scours our Sound Collage page for her projects. It made me realize that our Music for Video series is slanted towards entire songs for your projects, when sometimes you might just need a little 4 second long doodad.
For this special edition, we present a collection of elements to repurpose for your intro bumpers, loops, and transitions. From simple beeps, mellow beats, and the occasional bark, we hope this helps you fill your digital craft box full of sonic whatevers to cut, paste and cover with glitter.
1. File Under Toner (website, Public Domain) - Are the hiss, crackles, and pops on records protected by copyright? This track is part of an entire album made from the silent grooves of well known records.
2. The Books (website, CC BY-NC) - One of eight samples carefully selected from the Book's vast library of musical bits, strange phrases, and sonic doodads for a Third Coast Festival Short Doc contest. The next contest of this sort is underway here.
3. Lucky Dragons (website, CC BY-NC-SA) - A song for moving on. Find more interesting elements to work with in the Lucky Dragons' Dark Falcon project including lots of firework sounds. Contact them for more permissions.
