Chillvolution (Background Music 23) 4:45, 90 bpm

Pop, & R&B
This laid-back jazzy hip hop groove is suitable for a wide range of uses. It is good for vlogs as the melody is barely noticeable and the music is quite upbeat and not distracting. If you keep the volume low in the mix, it will simply bubble away on the background.

As longs as a word remains unspoken (Background Music 22) 2:14, 65 bpm

New age, classical piano
The tempo is actually 130 bpm, but the feeling is more like 65 bpm.
This is a very gentle piano instrumental with a slighly East-Asian feel to the melody.

Slow Descent 1 & 2 (Background Music 21) 4:28, 100 bpm

Orchestral & Electronica
This song is quite unusual. The first version is with strings (bowed and plucked), bells, harpsichord and synthesizer. The second version is a features a wailing, melodic rock guitar. The song was written for a short student sci-fi film. It was used scenes showing the main character being kept in a kind of solitary confinement until she starts to go mad. The ‘slow descent’ of the title, therefore, refers to her slow descent into madness. It also refers to the underlying harmonies The harmonic progression is influenced by the descending chords of the jazz standard ‘My Funny Valentine’. If you are looking for a weird, distinctive sound, you can try this one.

Cog in your Machine: Machine Music for Romantic Robots (Background Music 20) 5:41, 120 bpm

Electronica (electronicapopindustrialreggae)
This is another song produced for the same short film. Here a more mechanical feel (using beats created from looped factory sounds) to the music is used to reflect the strictly controlled and regimented. The bulk of the song is in an electro-pop kind of style with the pre-chorus, chorus and bridge making use of reggae beats and some treated vocals added in as well, so in the end you have a kind of electronicapopindustrialreggae. I’m not sure who else might require such a sound, but it did work quite well in the video.

Transect (Background Music 19) 6:55, 120 bpm

Techno, trance, rock & pop
This is a popular song. With its mix of electronic and rock styles and quickfire bassline, it’s a good choice if you want to add energy to your video. The use of tremolo guitar, rock riffs and jazz-drum-breaks makes it stand out from typical techno songs. You can also download an alternate version without the guitar solo at the end.

Rock Funk Beast (Background Music 18) 3:33, 95 bpm

Rock
This is exactly what it says on the tin. A straightforward rock track with a touch of funk. This is a loop based composition

Elegy (Background Music 17) 4:53, 77 bpm

Synth-piano Ballad
This is a slow and melancholy piano piece that was composed in memory of one of my former students who passed away suddenly a few weeks before. I didn’t want a really sad, heavy and depressing sound, however, as the girl was very sweet and cheerful. Therefore, the song was written in a major key and the arrangement is kept very light.

San (Background Music 16) 3:43, 112 bpm

Electropop
This is melodic electronica in a minor key. Bubbling synth sounds make up the bass and harmony creating a light and upbeat sound. Contrasting with this is a gentle melody.

Yeah! Why? (Background Music) 15 2:32, 124 bpm

Electronica
This track is pretty aggressive. It features and interesting use of a horn section for the chorus as well as vocal-like sounds throughout.

Arpology 2 (Ambient Synth version) (Background Music 14) 6:10, 71 bpm

Ambient (synthesizer)
This is a very peaceful song without much going on it in, so it is suitable to use if you want the music to stay out of the way and remain completely in the background. It is based on the same chords as Arpology 1
 

Download MP3: Arpology 2: Ambient Synth Version (BGM 14)
 

Arpology 1 (Frantic Sax version) (Background Music 13 ) 2:02, 112 bpm

Minimalist
This is a short, noisy and busy piece. It might be suitable for animation or a video montage (where there’s no dialogue).

Song No. 18—Rock Funk Beast—was created mainly using loops while other songs are mainly played using a Korg MicroX or M50 syntheszier. The songs were put together using Cakewalk’s Sonars Home Studio.
