Free Background Music 37: Holly’s Theme

Holly’s Theme (

In this video, I collaborated with a pianist, Kate Kwok, and five dancers from around the world—Haruko Kasai (Japan), Hope Gemmell (America), Applee Official (The Czech Republic) and Sarik Karichashvili and Mariam Barbaqadze (Georgia). I composed the song, Kate Kwok performed her piano arrangement and the dancers did their own choreography to the music. I hope you enjoy the video.

This solo piano instrumental—Holly’s Theme—is the 37th song in the Free Background Music Series. As with the other songs in this series, this song can be used for free in non-commercial projects and in YouTube monetized videos (that are otherwise non-commercial in nature) as long as credit is provided (“music by longzijun”).

There is also a bonus track at the end—a one-minute orchestral version of the slow part of the song. This shorter work is the 17th song in the Free Short Instrumentals Series (featuring songs that are 6 to 60 seconds in length). For more information about the terms and conditions for using the music, you can refer to the detailed Terms of Use.

About the Song

I composed this song as part of the soundtrack for a short film my students are working on. The fictional film is about the suicide of a young student, so the main theme has a propulsive feel to it, as if the girl is being driven to her fate, while the sparser middle section is for the part of the film showing the reaction of those who cared about her.
