I’ve just been scouring the internet for open source music to use in one of my gigs. The little bit of open source music available is absolute rubbish - totally unsuitable! So I decided to look for Royalty Free music - after all paying for something is one way to ensure legality! Huh! The music costs much more than my gig! Standard prices seem to be well over $40 for a piece of music. There I was thinking a one time use license would cost about $5 or $10.
So then I head over to shutterstock - who possibly have the largest collection of royalty free images, video and music - OMG…
First of all, does anyone have any ideas where I can get free music from (which I am allowed to use legally in commercial projects), and secondly, maybe Fiverr should start offering this as a service! I’m thinking a completely different category where we can find stock music, images and video clips for $5 per use. I know that they are using Getty Images and it’s brilliant, but music and video are lagging. It would be nice to have an archive of music and video clips that we can search through and purchase to use on our gigs!
Maybe I should search fiverr and see if anyone offers instrumental music purchases as a gig!
