Timelapse Background is a modern, dynamic electronic track featuring cinematic sounds, breakbeat drums and deep bass; perfect for any creative video project.
A great inspirational composition for background music on your drone video. Instruments featured include: cello, violins, and brass.
A hopeful, motivating piece that begins softly and builds into cinematic, positive and inspirational sounds. Piano and a full orchestra create a powerful simplicity that is meant to inspire, move and uplift. Includes pre-cut edits with no bleeds.
Representing the path of a firefly, this track makes use of bells and synth sounds to create something simple but ethereal.
Heaven on Earth is an emotional track, designed to complement a dramatic production. This track builds to provide power and drama.
This is an emotional and contemplative piano-based track, filled with uplifting sections, making it perfect as background for any inspirational project. The piece works well with sentimental, nostalgic or romantic projects as well as motivational or call to action video.
Dubai begins calmly, before transitioning into something more complex. The piece inspires imagery of Dubai: skyscrapers, heat and affluence.

12. Abstract Motion
Abstract Motion is a soft, electronic track featuring organic sounds and electronic textures.
13. The Epic
Stirring and emotional, think Hobbits finally reaching Mount Doom. If there are no hobbits (or wizards, or elves) in your production, then this would sound great over some stunning scenery.
This download includes four versions to suit your needs. Gentle piano music will provoke feelings of peace and nostalgia, so wipe the tear from your eye and add this to your emotional video for some heart-wrenching reactions.
