In this article we explore the term Media Music, its usage and what it means for you.
The Definition of Media Music
Media Music is a term most commonly used for describing Music specifically created for use in Media. When we say Media this can refer to a wide variety of formats from YouTube Videos to TV Productions, aswell as video games, corporate training videos, advertising, radio shows, telephone hold music and podcasts.
It is also often referred to as Production Music (meaning a Media Production) and you will often find it in Production Music Libraries such as SongTrack Network. Other terms frequently used are Library Music (the library being the site the media music is found upon) or Stock Music (much like stock photos or video footage) which all mean much the same thing.
Media Music may also be Buyout Music, Royalty Free Music or Copyright Free Music which refer to specific types of Media Music. You should always make sure you know exactly what you are paying and read the terms and conditions on media music sites as these terms can often be misleading.
SongTrack Network provides mechanical media music licenses making it easy for youtubers to monetise their videos and have fantastic musical soundtracks.
How And Why Media Music Is Used
As Media Music is often created with sync (adding music to media to add meaning) in mind it is usually created with the qualities videos editors have in mind for broadcasting. Because of the use of these qualities it is often a lot easier to use and makes the job of a production company a lot easier.
You can find lots of examples of high quality media music on this website. You may want a string based track to help add a luxury feel to your media or perhaps a retro synth based piece which may help add that retro feel to your video.
Media Music is ultimately used as the icing on the cake for many media productions. It adds meaning (perhaps suspense), helps grab the attention and enhances the overall experience for viewers or players.
