    Hi everyone,

    It's a little hard to believe, but Soundimage turned 3 years old this month, so I wanted to send out a big thank you to everyone who has been so positive and encouraging from the start. Creating original music is a lot of work, but it's thrilling to hear my tracks in your games, apps, videos and emerging art forms like interactive novels. I feel like part of me is in your work, and it's incredibly satisfying to be able to help you make your visions into realities.
     
    Thank you!

    In a few more weeks, I should have seamless looping versions done of nearly every track on the site. That said, this week's new free tracks are from my sci-fi pages. They are:

    "Retro Sci-Fi Planet"_Looping

    "Night Winds"_Looping

    "Eerie Cyber World"_Looping

    "Dizzybot"_Looping

    http://soundimage.org/sci-fi/

    "Dystopic Technology"_Looping

    http://soundimage.org/sci-fi-2/

    I hope some of them are helpful!

    I've received a lot of requests for chiptunes style music so I've opened a chiptunes page and uploaded a bunch of tracks to get it started. I hope some of them are helpful!

    Have a great week!

    Hey Eric,

    Keep up the good work.

    Thanks, feel free to share when your project is done...I'd love to see it!

    In the meantime...

    This week's new free tracks are:

    "Cyber Dystopia"_Looping

    http://soundimage.org/sci-fi-5/

    "Sewer Creepers"_Looping

    "Grunge Bot"_Looping

    "Breakdown"_Looping

    "Countdown"_Looping

    http://soundimage.org/sci-fi-4/

    I get emails every once in a while from folks who seem to be having a bit of trouble navigating the site. Here are some things to keep in mind that should hopefully help:

    1. The titles of the pages in the tan box under the header image are actually links to the various pages. Hover over them to highlight them (a box appears around them) and then click.

    2. I think sometimes people are fooled when they click on one of the page links, like for example "Fantasy 3" and nothing seems to happen. But if you look closer, you'll see that the title of the link you clicked on actually turns to bold indicating that you are now on that particular page. Simply scroll down to see the contents of that page. 

    3. Since all of the page links appear at the top of every page, it's easy to think that you haven't been taken anywhere after clicking on one of them. Again, notice that the title of the link you clicked on has now turned bold...and you have to scroll down to see the page contents.

    Anyhow, I hope that's helpful!  :-)

    A really impressive collection of music and sound assets!

    You are a highly devoted creator, that's great to see.


    ___

    Unfortunately, for me personally, I would never risk using your assets because of your Prohibited Uses clause:

    "The use of my music or images in any media that violates Youtube community standards is prohibited. In other words, you can’t use my music in obscene material."


    The problem is that YouTube Community Guidelines are highly ambiguous and open to interpretation.  Currently the Community Guidelines are used to censor undesirable content on YouTube.  All the power lies with YouTube staff deciding if a video is allowed or not.

    A large percentage of the videos on YouTube clearly violate the YouTube Community Guidelines, but are allowed to remain up.  Other videos that only lightly violate them get taken down despite there being thousands of other videos violating the same standard.

    To be clear, YouTube has tens of thousands of full-length cinema movies, including ones with full frontal nudity, R rated gory violence, and so on.  They remain up for years.  YouTube simply does not adhere to its own Community Guidelines, allowing extremely violent and sexually suggestive content to be posted, including by famous YouTube personalities.

    Here are the Community Guidelines for violence on YouTube:


    Except YouTube allows tens of thousands of videos of schoolyard and street fights, clearly violating the rules.  There are walkthroughs of video games that have the sole purpose of sensationalising violence, yet these videos are allowed to remain on YouTube.

    Try going to YouTube and typing in "goriest video games" or "most violent video games" and see what comes up.  Almost all of the violent videos on YouTube are not behind age-walls.

    Anyhow, perhaps consider why you are choosing "YouTube Community Guidelines" as a requirement for using your works, because it's a terrible legal loophole.  If your goal isn't to sue people who use your assets, then you need to figure out why you have a vague, open-to-interpretation Copyright license.

    I can't imagine any company's legal department allowing use of your assets under their current license restrictions.

    Even worse, you do not include a copy of YouTube's Community Guidelines -- which regularly change.  (But keep in mind that you're not legally allowed to Copy & Paste, the text, as the Copyright on it belongs to Google, not you.)  People using your assets will need to be concerned that Google changing its policies in the future rendering their project illegal.

    Thanks for your feedback...I appreciate it. I have no issues with violence, nudity, etc., if it is used artistically. What I prohibit is my music being used in work that is pornographic in nature, which is what the Youtube community standards were referring to when I read them. Also things like animal brutality. This was some time ago, though, so I'll need to revisit the standards and possibly update my license. Again, I really appreciate your feedback. Thanks so much.

    Now that looping versions of most of my tracks are done, I'm back to creating brand new music and soundscapes. Got a new synth, too, so lots of new sounds are on their way. Here are some for starters:

    "Sky Runner" (standard and looping)
    "Cyber Teen"
    http://soundimage.org/sci-fi-5/

    "It's Always Sunny in the 80's"
    "It's Raining Pixels"
    "The Ice Cream Man"
    http://soundimage.org/chiptunes/

    "After the Invasion"
    http://soundimage.org/horrorsurreal/

    "From the Sand to the Stars"
    http://soundimage.org/techno/

    I hope some of them are useful!  :-)
