    Free Music / SFX Resource - Over 2000 Tracks

    Hi Folks, This week’s new free music tracks are: On my Fantasy 10 page: A TRAIL OF JEWELS – (Looping) QUIRKY GAME WORLD – (Looping) https://soundimage.org/fantasy-10/ On my Funny 7 page: THE FISHBOWL ACROBATS RETURN – (Looping) WINDLE’S WHIMSICAL STREET – (Looping) https://soundimage.org/funny-7/ If you’re wondering what the big fuss about Ogg tracks is, they have several advantages: -They are small in size. -Game engines seem to handle them better for looping…MP3 files occasionally need editing. -They sound fantastic…almost as good as my original WAVs. -They’re a cool way to support my work!

    Another Special Request to Everyone: If you possibly can, please consider making a small donation on my website to support my work. The synthesizers I use to create free music for everyone are very expensive (2 Korgs and a Yamaha.) I actually have to make monthly payments on them and donations from the creative community really help me a LOT to pay for them. Thanks in advance. :-) That said, I managed to get a couple of new tracks done for everyone. Free to use, as always, with attribution: On My Epic / Battle page: “COMRADES ALWAYS” (Looping) https://soundimage.org/epic-battle/ On my Fantasy 10 page: “OF KNIGHTS AND KINGS” (Looping) https://soundimage.org/fantasy-10/ Please stay safe and healthy.

    Good News: Super high-quality Ogg versions of all of my Puzzle Music Tracks are ready. That’s around 100 tracks to choose from…all created from my original WAV recordings (but much smaller in file size.) They’re really cool, too, because they can be used for all kinds of things in addition to puzzle games. You’ll find them on my Puzzle Music 1-5 pages. https://soundimage.org/puzzle-music/ More Good News: All of the tracks on my Fantasy 9 page now have Ogg versions as well. They sound great! https://soundimage.org/fantasy-9/ And even MORE good news: If you create arcade-style games (or know someone who does) Ogg versions of all the tracks on my Chiptunes 1 page are now ready, too. https://soundimage.org/chiptunes/ That said, this week’s new free MP3 tracks are: On my Epic / Battle page: PREPARING FOR BATTLE – (Looping) https://soundimage.org/epic-battle/ On my Fantasy 10 page: THE KEY TO THE KINGDOM – (Looping) https://soundimage.org/fantasy-10/ And on my Looping Music page: RACING MENU_V001 – (Looping) 80’S SPACE GAME LOOP_V002 https://soundimage.org/looping-music/ Keep being creative and please stay safe.

    Dune's Island - A Free Video Learning Series

    Awesome...thank you! For those of you who have been following my music sharing thread over the years, you know that I'm not one to toot my own whistle, but I've been getting some very positive feedback about "Dune's Island" from parents and teachers so I included a "Praise for Dune's Island" page on the site. Given the current environmental situation, I believe that this is a very important project. Getting the word out about it is a massive challenge, though...especially since it has no advertising budget. If you think "Dune's Island" might be helpful to someone you know, please share it with them. Thanks in advance! https://www.dunesisland.org/

    Probably not. If you need something custom created, though, I do that all the time. :-) Anyhow, this week’s new free MP3 music tracks are from two pages on my site: From my Chiptunes 3 page: THE PIXELVILLE HALL OF JUSTICE – (Looping) https://soundimage.org/chiptunes-3/ And from my Funny 7 page: GAME WORLD SILLINESS LOLA PIXEL RETURNS MORE FISHBOWL ACROBATICS – (Looping) https://soundimage.org/funny-7/ Please stay healthy and safe.

    Well, we're sure trying hard to get it out to the world, but it's a massive challenge. Please feel free to help us share it! :-) Here’s our page where you can access all of the episodes. I think it looks pretty good for a community project! https://www.dunesisland.org/episodes

    Dune's Island - A Free Video Learning Series

    I had always intended "Dune's Island" to be an immersive learning world. The idea was to produce films that teachers and home educators could actually pull lessons from to share with their students. After completing the episodes, a team of science teachers went through the films and created curriculum for grades K-5 that ties into the episodes. Here's a link to it: https://www.dunesisland.org/curriculum Please feel free to share it!
