  1. A huge heartfelt THANK YOU to the kind folks who reached out and supported my work this month by donating on my site. You folks literally make this all possible. Thank you! That said, this week’s new free MP3 tracks are: From my Puzzle Music 5 page: ICE PUZZLE – (Looping) https://soundimage.org/puzzle-music-5/ From my Sci-Fi 9 page: TWISTED DYSTOPIA – (Looping) DETECTIVES IN DYTOPIA (Looping) https://soundimage.org/sci-fi-9/ Big Ogg Track Update! Super high-quality Ogg versions of a bunch my tracks are ready. They sound really cool and could be used for all kinds of things besides puzzle games I’m sure. They are: BOUNCE LIGHT 1 & 2– (Looping) FROSTY PUZZLER (2 versions) – (Looping) PUZZLE TRANCE – (Looping) HYPNOTIC JEWELS – (Looping) PIANO PUZZLES – (Looping) MONKEY ISLAND PUZZLER – (Looping) MUSIC BOX PUZZLER – (Looping) PUZZLE CLUES – (Looping) CRYPTIC PUZZLER 1 & 2 – (Looping) BELL PUZZLES – (Looping) MELLOW PUZZLER 1 & 2 – (Looping) THOUGHT PUZZLES – (Looping) ROBOT’S CUBE – (Looping) HAPPY PUZZLER – (Looping) https://soundimage.org/puzzle-music-2/ Have a good week and stay safe.
  2. Here's Episode 1 of my free learning series. Mr. Binnacle sends Dune and friends to the inlet to try to spot Buster, an endangered sea turtle whose tracking device is faltering. For ages 7-12. Please share with family, friends and teachers! https://www.dunesisland.org/
  3. A Request to Everyone: If you can, please consider making a small donation on my website to support my work. The synthesizers I use to create free music for everyone are very expensive (2 Korgs and a Yamaha.) I actually have to make monthly payments on them and donations from the creative community really help me a lot to pay for them. Thanks in advance. 🙂 That said, I managed to get some new tracks done for everyone. Free to use, of course, with attribution: On my Fantasy 10 page: DESERT MYSTERY – (Looping) https://soundimage.org/fantasy-10/ On my Sci-Fi 9 page: BLAST OFF – (Looping) https://soundimage.org/sci-fi-9/ And on my Events/Travel 2 page: COUNTRY CELEBRATION https://soundimage.org/events-travel-2/ Be well and stay healthy.
  4. If you've been following my music sharing thread over the years, you know that I'm not one to toot my own whistle, but I've been getting some very positive feedback about "Dune's Island" from parents and teachers so I included a "Praise for Dune's Island" page on the site. Given the current environmental situation, I believe that this is a very important project. Getting the word out about it is a massive challenge, though...especially since it has no advertising budget. If you think "Dune's Island" might be helpful to someone you know, please share it with them. Thanks in advance! https://www.dunesisland.org/
  5. This week’s new free MP3 music tracks are from two pages on my site: From my Chiptunes 3 page: THE PIXELVILLE HALL OF JUSTICE – (Looping) https://soundimage.org/chiptunes-3/ And from my Funny 7 page: GAME WORLD SILLINESS LOLA PIXEL RETURNS MORE FISHBOWL ACROBATICS – (Looping) https://soundimage.org/funny-7/ Please stay healthy and safe.
  6. Here’s our page where you can access all of the episodes. I think it looks pretty good for a community project! Please help us share it with the world. https://www.dunesisland.org/episodes
  7. Hi everyone, Here are this week’s new free MP3 tracks: On my Fantasy 10 page: WINTER OF DESPAIR – (Looping) OF CASTLES, MAGIC AND SPELLS_Remixed – (Looping) https://soundimage.org/fantasy-10/ On my Puzzle Music 1 page: MYSTERIOUS PUZZLE – (Looping) https://soundimage.org/puzzle-music/ On my Puzzle Music 5 page: OF JEWELS AND PUZZLES – (Looping) https://soundimage.org/puzzle-music-5/ And on my Chiptunes 2 page: PIXELIN’ IT AROUND TOWN – (Standard – non looping) PIXELIN’ IT AROUND TOWN_v001 – (Standard – non looping) PIXELIN’ IT AROUND TOWN_v002 – (Standard – non looping) https://soundimage.org/chiptunes-2/ Don’t forget about my premium Ogg tracks. They sound great and are super affordable…a cool way to support my work. Stay safe and healthy.
  8. I had always intended "Dune's Island" to be an immersive learning world. The idea was to produce films that teachers and home educators could actually pull lessons from to share with their students. After completing the episodes, a team of science teachers went through the films and created curriculum for grades K-5 that ties into the episodes. Here's a link to it: https://www.dunesisland.org/curriculum Please feel free to share it!
  9. Hi everyone, Brand new seamless texture images are ready on these pages: TXR – ABSTRACT https://soundimage.org/txr-abstract/ TXR – WOOD - SEAMLESS https://soundimage.org/txr-wood-seamless/ For those of you who are using my music tracks, I had a request last weekend for a bunch of higher quality Ogg versions of my tracks that I hadn’t yet converted, so they are now available if anyone is interested. They are: Funky Gameplay Windle Pixel Saves the Day (Looping) Puzzling Curiosities Points Tally Pixelin’ It Around Town Mysterious Puzzle Cyber Puzzles Cryptic Puzzler 2 Arcade Puzzler_v001 They sound great and are a cool way to support my work. 🙂
  10. If anyone happens to wonder what I get up to when I’m not creating music for everyone, I write and direct films that hopefully help kids (and grownups) learn important things. Here's a link to the page on my new site where you can freely access all of the "Dune's Island" episodes. I’ve enabled the download function on Vimeo so you don’t even have to be online to share it with your kiddos. Enjoy…and please feel free to share with anyone who might find it useful. https://www.dunesisland.org/episodes Stay safe and healthy.

If you want an Ogg version of a track that isn’t available yet, just email me and I’ll be happy to create it for you and put it on Gumroad. Be well.

  15. Hi everyone, If you happen to have kids (or know someone who does) here's a brand new free resource that I hope is helpful. It's a website for my video learning series, “Dune’s Island,” which aims to teach kids environmental stewardship in a really fun way through stories and characters. Within the site you can freely access all the episodes, support documentaries and even tie-in curriculum (like vocabulary, math problems, writing prompts and more.) In the coming weeks, I’ll be expanding the site with all kinds of activities and more cool documentaries, so please be sure to bookmark it. In the meantime, any and all feedback is welcome and very much appreciated. Enjoy and stay safe. https://www.dunesisland.org/
