NOW PLAYING ON MY VIRTUAL CINEMA PAGE 🙂
The Meditative Coast – 30 mins.
I find being by the sea to be incredibly meditative…and a helpful way to “decompress” from our frantic, stressed-out world. If you feel the need to decompress, give it a try. Personally, I find shooting videos like this to be just as meditative as watching them.
NEW TEXTURE IMAGE PAGES
I’ve been shooting and creating interesting texture images that might be useful in your games, videos, animations or anything else you can think of. The images live on new pages that are labeled “TXR.” (They appear at the bottom of the page menu.) Feel free to edit them, combine them with other images or anything you like! 🙂
LOOPING VERSIONS OF MY TRACKS
In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve been working hard creating looping versions of as many tracks as possible…I hope they are helpful!
SLIGHT REORGANIZATION OF PAGES
In order to keep the new TXR pages grouped together, I’ve had to move around a few music pages, so…
The “UPBEAT” page is now the “POSITIVE / UPBEAT” page.
The “URBAN” pages are now “CITY / URBAN.”
If you have any problems finding anything, just drop me an email.
More and more people are asking if I do custom tracks. The answer is yes! And at very low cost…(most people are surprised at how affordable it is.) If you need something special created for your project, just send me an email and I’ll see what I can do. 🙂
The music, soundscapes, sound effects and texture images on this site are all original (created by me) and are free to use for both non-commercial projects (projects not intended to make money) as well as commercial projects (projects intended to make money.)
IMPORTANT: You must properly attribute me in order to use my music and images legally:
You must attribute me in the actual video, game, interactive novel, etc.…not merely on the Youtube or game info page.
If you are using only my music/sound fx, and not that of another artist(s) then your credits screen in your video or game needs to say:
Music (and/or Sound Effects) by Eric Matyas
If you are using my music/sound effects as well as those of another artist(s) then you need to identify which tracks (and/or sound effects) are mine and credit me, for example:
“Invasion of the Giant Disco Ants”
by Eric Matyas
If cannot or do not wish to attribute me, then you will need to purchase a non-attribution license from me for $30/track.
FOR TEXTURE IMAGES:
Please list my name and website in the assets credits screen of your game under “Texture Images.”
