4.4 Free music and sounds

Moby has a site of free music for videos

http://www.mobygratis.com/catalog

Find and Download Royalty-Free Music and Sounds

The following websites provide digital music tracks that may be used in digital stories and shared on the web.

Many of these sites provide music under a Creative Commons license where musicians give away their music for certain non-commercial purposes or place their music in the public domain where it may be used without any restrictions.

Some sites let you use music without any restrictions while others require you to include a citation to the music or website when you found it.

I suggest that you carefully review the “about” pages where you will find terms of usage for each site to make sure that you follow their guidelines when including music from these sites in your own digital storytelling projects.
