This video features the 25th song in the Free Short Instrumental Themes series: Sonicide. The visuals are a time-lapse showing Osaka. There are four different versions of the song, ranging in duration from 20 seconds to 36 seconds. This track is based on an excerpt from the middle part of Sonicidence (Song no. 27 in the free background music series).
As with the other songs in this series, this instrumental 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’).
Different Versions (20-36 seconds)
There are four different versions. The last part of the song (starting from where the drums come in) is the same in each version; the difference is in how much music there is before that. The version in the video is Medium version 2. The cymbal crash in each version comes four seconds before the end of the song.
- Long version – 36 seconds (there are eight measures before the drums come in)
- Medium version 1- 30 seconds (there are five measures before the drums come in)
- Medium version 2- 28 seconds (there are four measures before the drums come in; the cymbal crash at the end is at the 24-second mark)
- Short version – 20 seconds (the song starts with the drums)
Long version (0:36)

About the Video
I shot the photos of footage of Osaka in 2016 from my hotel room as the sun started to set. The camera I was using—a Sony NEX-7—doesn’t have an automatic timer, but it does have a time delay setting (e.g., the shutter will release a set time after pressing the button), so I had to press the shutter button for each photo. To see more of my photos from that trip (to Kyoto, Osaka and Nara), you can go to my article: Kyoto Photos.
