  1. 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/
  2. 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.
  3. 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/
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6.

They sound great and are super affordable…a cool way to support my work. Stay safe and healthy.
  7. 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!
  8. 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. 🙂
  9. 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.

  14. 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/

I’ll be expanding it with all kinds of cool activities and more fun documentaries, but I think it’s a good start. I hope the site is helpful.

Be safe and have a good week.
  19. Greetings!

  20. Hi everyone, I’ve been super busy, but I did manage to get a few new tracks done…all free to use with attribution: On my City/Urban 2 page: BREAK IN_v001 - (Looping) SODIUM VAPOR_v001 SODIUM VAPOR_v001 (Looping) https://soundimage.org/city-urban-2/ I just opened the Sci-Fi 9 page with this brand new track: SLIMY ALIENS FROM OUTER SPACE! – (Looping) https://soundimage.org/sci-fi-9/ My Sci-Fi 8 page got a bit too big, so I moved these two tracks to the new Sci-Fi 9 page as well: DESOLATE STREETS IN A MACHINE WORLD – (Looping) ELECTRIC DRIZZLE – (Looping) Enjoy…and have a good week!
  21. Big news, guys! All of my tracks on my Dark/Ominous page are now available as very high quality Ogg files. They sound amazing…almost as good as the original WAV files that they were created from…and are much much smaller in size…perfect for videogames. Give them a try. https://soundimage.org/dark-ominous/ On that note, some people have asked me why I’m offering Ogg files when they can simply convert my free MP3 tracks to Ogg themselves. You are certainly welcome to do this, but it won’t increase the quality of the tracks at all because you’re starting with MP3. The reason my Ogg files sound so great is that I’m creating them from my original WAV recordings. That said, this week’s new free tracks are: On my Fantasy 10 page: SKY DRIFTERS – (Looping) SKY DRIFTERS 2 – (Looping) https://soundimage.org/fantasy-10/ On my Positive / Upbeat page: THE BALLOON HEADS DAY OUT – (Looping) https://soundimage.org/positive-upbeat/ On my Puzzle Music 5 page: FUNKY PUZZLER – (Looping) https://soundimage.org/puzzle-music-5/ And on my Sci-Fi 8 page: DESOLATE STREETS IN A MACHINE WORLD – (Looping) ELECTRIC DRIZZLE – (Looping) https://soundimage.org/sci-fi-8/ Enjoy…and keep being creative!
