Kevin Hartnell-“CC BY-SA 4.0” Creative Commons Music on FMA

Kevin Hartnell - "CC BY-SA 4.0" (a collection of music released under a creative commons license on FMA) Over the years I have amassed a large number of tracks that didn't seem to go anywhere once they were completed, or almost completed. Rather than leave them parked on a hard drive, I decided to turn them loose and submit them for possible inclusion on the Free Music Archive website. I assembled a collection of twenty-one tracks and sent in the submission. They were accepted five days ago and are available now for streaming or download. For those unfamiliar with creative......

I've said it before and I will say it again. Synthesizers, to my......

My Top 20 List of Film and Television Soundtracks From 1970-1980

 My Top 20 Film & Television Soundtracks From 1970-1980 (with a focus on horror, science fiction, and fantasy) On rare occasions, when I am not making music, I have time to listen. When I listen, it is generally to radio plays. I also enjoy listening to soundtracks. There were a lot of great films made in the 70's and 80's and, as you would expect, some great music was created to go along with them. Of course, there is no guarantee that a great film will have a great score. Sometimes you can find great music in a bad film. ......
