    Hi Folks,

    I just opened a brand new page, Puzzle Music 7, with this week’s new free tracks:

    LIGHT PUZZLES 8

    LIGHT PUZZLES 9

    LIGHT PUZZLES 10

    https://soundimage.org/puzzle-music-7/

    Please know that they don’t have to be used for puzzle-related things…it’s just what came to mind when I created them. Same for all my tracks throughout my site.

    CUSTOM WORK

    Does anyone need some custom music created? My keyboard synthesizers are built for rapid music creation so tracks that used to take days to create can be done in a few short hours. That means a huge cost savings to everyone. Feel free to contact me…I can work with almost any budget.

    https://soundimage.org/custom-work/

    Have a good week!

    A SPECIAL REQUEST

    If you can, please consider making a small donation on my site to help support it. I don't allow advertising on the site because I feel it would be distracting to my visitors so I pay for everything myself and donations from the community really help me a lot.

    I also have Ogg music packs for sale that are super-reasonable and help to support the site as well.

    Lastly, if you happen to need some original music for a project, I do that as well at very low cost to everyone. One of my goals with this project is to make good-sounding music available to anyone...just give me a shout!

    That said, this week’s new images are on these pages on my site:

    FUR (Artistic)

    GROUND (Artistic)

    METAL (Artistic)

    As always, they are 100% free to use with attribution.

    Enjoy!

    Hey Everyone,

    Content creators keep asking me if they can use my assets in projects intended to make money...

    The answer is YES...please do! :)

    As long as you use my assets within projects and properly attribute me, it's perfectly fine. Here's a link to my attribution page:

    https://soundimage.org/attribution-info/

    What you CANNOT do is resell my assets outright or, say, make an original soundtrack from my music and sell that. That would be illegal. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

    That said, this week's brand new sounds are:

    On my Sci-Fi Ambience page:
    "ELECTRO DRONE"
    https://soundimage.org/amb-sci-fi-ambience/

    And on my Urban Ambience page:
    "STREET AMBIENCE 1-3"_5-28-22
    https://soundimage.org/amb-urban-ambience/

    Enjoy, stay safe and keep being creative!

    Greetings Teachers!

    I've had some questions about how to properly attribute me when using my music. It's super easy.

    Let's say, for example, that you're using two of my tracks, "MIND BENDER" and "NETHERPLACE" in your project.

    If you're using only my music (and not music by other artists) then you would attribute me like this:

    Music by Eric Matyas
    www.soundimage.org

    (The reference to my website doesn't have to be an actual link.)

    Now, let's say you're using those two tracks of mine AND music by another artist or artists. In this case, you need to identify my tracks so people know which ones are mine. So you need to attribute me like this:

    "MIND BENDER"
    "NETHERPLACE"
    by Eric Matyas
    www.soundimage.org

    (Again, the reference to my website doesn't have to be an actual link.)

    All of this information can be found on the attribution information page on my site:

    https://soundimage.org/attribution-info/

    There's also information about how to attribute me in other kinds of projects, like podcasts, theater productions, etc.

    If anyone has any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. My email address is on the homepage of my site.

    Enjoy and keep creating! :)

    Thanks, I hope some of my music is helpful to you and your students. Please feel free to share!

    Speaking of which...

    I have a couple of new music tracks to share on my Sci-Fi 11 page:

    "OFF WORLD SUNRISE" – On some faraway planet? What would it look like?

    "THE MIND OF THE CITY" – (Looping) – Perhaps cities of the future will have their own “minds” to run everything.

    https://soundimage.org/sci-fi-11/

    Please don't forget about my Ogg music packs. They enable you to download all of my tracks at once for my most popular genres. A huge time-saver.

    Greetings Fellow Educators,

    If you find my free music helpful, please consider making a small donation on my website to help support my efforts. I don't allow advertising on the site because I feel it would be distracting to my visitors so I pay for everything myself. Support from the community is literally what makes this possible. Thank you in advance! :)

    That said, this week's new free music tracks are:

    On my Funny 8 page:
    "MONSTER MERRY-GO-ROUND "
    https://soundimage.org/funny-8/

    And on my Sci-Fi 12 page:
    "CYBER STREET MARKET"
    https://soundimage.org/sci-fi-12/

    Enjoy, stay safe and keep being creative!

    Hi everyone,

    As of this past week, the black and pink buttons on my site that take you to my higher-quality Ogg tracks and packs on Gumroad are not displaying properly nor are they working properly. I am working with my web hosting company to resolve the issue. In the meantime, please don’t use them.

    You can still download my tracks freely in mp3 format. The links are under the players for each track.

    If you need a particular track or pack in Ogg format, please email me and I’ll send you a direct link to it on Gumroad. My email address is on my homepage.

    As always, please stay safe and keep creating. :)
