Written specifically as an underscore for narration or voice-over. A smooth mix with no peaks or strong melody to get in the way of the narrative, but at the same time providing an inspirational musical atmosphere. Great for instructional or informative voice content - positive and motivational. Instrumental, Corporate, Corp. New Age Electronic
A very atmospheric track that conveys motion, machinery, growth and general enterprise for a corporate anthem or presentation underscore. Forward-moving and forward-thinking, a perfect musical description of progress, optimism and prosperity with a nice musical arch for that dramatic flare. Instrumental, Corporate, Electronic Progressive
Atmospheric and colorful, this track is perfect as a corporate music bed or a cue for traveling, transition, collage or trendy commercial. Wide open yet focused with a generic quality that will fit just about anywhere. Instrumental, Corporate, Corp. New Age Electronic
A perfect anthem or theme that presents a hip, modern and soulful musical landscape. A great bed for a video or corporate presentation. Smooth and funky, this composition can be both inconspicuous or used as a main theme. Think of it as a musical skyline that beckons the listener with anticipation. Instrumental, Corporate, Corporate Ambient
This ditty is in 3/4 time with an interesting melody that invokes a slight comedy element. It would also make a great underscore for a TV or radio commercial. If you have simple dialog and want simple music to compliment... this is it. Could also be nice interlude to depict the passing of time. Instrumental, Dramatic, Dramatic Solo Piano
A simple yet very musical piano piece similar to the famous Apple MAC vs. PC commercials. The melody is cheerful and inviting with a tick-toc meter making it perfect for a commercial underscore. There is also a calming ambience that would suggest a children’s theme or lullaby. Instrumental, Corporate, Radio/Multimedia
The style of music we love to hate... the schmaltzy, white bread music of the extremely ‘non-offensive’ kind that is heard in elevators, department stores, supermarkets and family restaurants. Perfect for a TV or movie scene or parody that calls for this type of generic background music. Instrumental, Comedy, Parody Music
