New Style for “World Sorrow” and Examples of "World" Styles of Music
With the harsh weather conditions around the world, the Indonesian tsunami, Katrina flood, earthquakes in China, suffering in Darfur, and now Haiti, we added World Sorrow to our Style selections to help categorize recent music our artists are composing. World Sorrow lends itself to world-oriented music that has elements of sadness, tragedy and emotion yet offers hope for healing. World Harmony is for awesome uplifting, positive, peaceful, harmonious, vibrant or pulsing friendly tracks from around the world, while World Beat is used for world-oriented tracks with a tribal, indigenous, or otherwise ethnic flair with a strong sense of country or travel-related music.
Below are examples for each of these three World categories. If you are an artist at AudioSparx, as you create new tracks or have existing tracks like these, please check the proper World Style so clients will find the right music tracks to evoke the necessary feel for their productions.
