Last week, I talked about the sound design of A Titan’s Rise. Today, I want to dive into how music can make your world pop. We’ve used music to boost our Audio Dramas since before we had brilliant composers on the Erascapes team – I want to show you how we found them by looking at the original Radio Free Taranis episodes.
Our podcast set around Midnight Terry’s anti-establishment rants needed music to break things up, so the writers’ room started by talking about what genres would best suit the mood and then I went on a journey!
This fabulous network of Creative Commons musicians and remixers created a full genre archive that lets you search by instrument, mood or theme! No matter the size and scale of your ideas you’ll be able to find something to get creativity flowing.
One piece of advice – Make sure you check the full terms of the Creative Commons usage license on the track, as it varies depending on the creator and even the track sometimes!
If you want to hear what we built by doing this, you can check out Radio Free Taranis on audible right now! https://www.audible.co.uk/pd/B07XVT4X1J/?source_code=AUKFrDlWS02231890H6-BK-ACX0-164477&ref=acx_bty_BK_ACX0_164477_rh_uk
