Free Background Music 42: Drifting

1. The Music

This video features Drifting, the 42nd song in the Free Background Music series. Drifting is a two-minute song built from loops (for the guitar, zither, cello and percussion parts) and tracks I played on a Korg M50 keyboard (the strings, bass, woodwinds and synth parts). It drifts between C minor and it’s relative major (E flat). In this composition, I am mainly focusing on the gentle rhythmic interplay between the instruments. If you like this track, you should check out another of my songs: Ravenchanter (Track 29). It has a similar laid-back acoustic vibe.

As with the other songs in the Background Music series, this instrumental work 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’). For more information about the terms and conditions for using the music, you can refer to the detailed Terms of Use.

2. About the Pomeranian!

This video features Ball Ball, our lovely Pomeranian. My kids and I shot the footage last year when he was still a puppy. Now he is a lot bigger, though still quite small. I had tried to persuade my kids to adopt a dog, but they had their hearts set on that particular breed. When we took him to the vet for the first time, we were told he was malnourished and we had to feed him more (Ball Ball didn’t mind that advice at all). We suspect the breeder had been underfeeding him in order to make him as tiny as possible. Pomeranians are cute, but apparently many of them go through a stage when they look kind of weird—like tiny snow monkeys. Originally, I had planned to call him Jon Snow of House Pomeranian, but I thought that ‘snow’ sounded too similar to ‘no’ and would cause him endless confusion.

Some of the video footage is by myself and some is by Jade and Eamonn.
