What do I do if I receive a copyright claim?

What do I do if I receive a copyright claim?

June 24, 2020 |

If you get a copyright claim (on YouTube or elsewhere), it is nothing to panic over. It rarely happens. On the off chance that you do receive one, it doesn’t mean a strike has been created against you or your channel. Also, there is an easy (and quick) way to resolve this. If this music is royalty-free, why would I get a copyright claim? Just to be clear, this rarely ever happens! Usually claims result from an automated content identification service flagging your creation as potentially containing copyrighted material. This could be a mistake or it could also be the result of someone (who is using my music) submitting their creation to a ContentID service. This could possibly create a false copyright claim, since both projects are using the same music. For this reason, I do not allow my customers to submit my music to content identification services (such as…    read more 

Meditation Music + Humpback Whales in 4K

Meditation Music + Humpback Whales in 4K

June 23, 2020 |

I am always happy to hear from customers who are using my music in their projects. Recently I heard from an amazing creator who is using some of my royalty-free meditation music in his gorgeous videos featuring humpback whales. Peter Schneider is a nature filmmaker specializing in the creation of nature films, documentaries, travel films, stock footage and more. He does it all, acting as cameraman, director, producer, editor, best boy, and diver. The results are outstanding and I am proud to have my music featured in his projects! Peter ventures into the the ocean to capture these fantastic shots of humpback whales. He also captures the incomparable sounds of these gentle giants. I am impressed with how well the music combines with the sound of the whales and the breathtaking visuals Peter is able to capture. His underwater films are captured in 4K using a Sony Alpha 7Rll and…    read more 

Two New Animated Visualizations Featuring Royalty-Free Meditation Music

Two New Animated Visualizations Featuring Royalty-Free Meditation Music

November 11, 2019 |

Hi all! I am super pumped to share these animated visualizations that I put some of my music to. I worked with a friend of mine who is a fantastic animator. His name is Joey Carlino. If you are interested in commissioning an animation from him, you can get in touch by emailing joeycarlino@gmail.com. I am very happy with how these turned out. I made some special super-long versions of these tracks and used the animations (which loop seamlessly) to make visualizations that are over an hour long. I hope you will enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them. Most of my music is available to listen to for free on my YouTube channel and also on Insight Timer. So without further ado, here are the visualizations! Zen Mindfulness Meditation Music & Visualization (Royalty Free Music) I hope you will enjoy this royalty-free track suitable for relaxation, meditation,…    read more 

Now Introducing: Filter by Length!

Now Introducing: Filter by Length!

November 15, 2018 |

By popular demand we have finally introduced the ability to filter all of our royalty-free music by length. This has been widely requested and we certainly think it’s a good idea! Here on Indie Music Box we offer a large range of lengths. The filter options are currently available within the main menu, but we will also link to them below: 0-5 minutes 5-10 minutes 10-15 minutes 15-20 minutes 20-30 minutes 30+ Minutes Why Length is Important We have many folks coming here looking for longer tracks and requesting long tracks. Often they are looking for lengthy meditation music for a guided meditation, yoga practice, studio application, and more. Many times they have found our website from one of our long videos on YouTube, such as our 10 Hours of Meditation Music video. It’s important to us to allow for easy-browsing of our archives. We want to make it easy…    read more

I’m going to walk you through an easy way to do this (and have it sound good) on a limited budget. Ready? Let’s go! What You’ll Need Before You Start There are a few things you will need before you start the process. You may already have these things or maybe you’ll need to get them.

What Is Royalty-Free Music and How Does It Work?

What Is Royalty-Free Music and How Does It Work?

June 19, 2018 |

Over the years I’ve encountered a lot of questions from people confused about what royalty-free music is and how it works. I’ll admit, I’ve even been confused at times, especially when I was just starting to write royalty-free music about 10 years ago. This article will clear up what royalty-free music is and also provide some guidelines for how you can use the music available on this website. What Royalty-Free Music IS NOT FREE – Despite the confusing name, royalty-free music is not necessarily free. I’ve described it in the past as being like the term “sugar-free”. You wouldn’t expect a “sugar-free” item at the grocery store to be free, it just means that there is no sugar in the item. Similarly, royalty-free music means that there are no royalties paid to the creator of the music when you use it, provided that you obtain the music legally (more on…    read more
