Background Music 1/2

What is background music?

Background music is unobtrusive music that normally remains in the background of attention for its listeners. As "atmospheric music" or „Easy-Listening music“ it usually provides a relaxed, pleasant atmosphere and can, within a certain performance framework, stimulate activities that are not directly related to this music. In contrast, foreground music demands the listener's attention.

Background music is mostly used in environments accessible to the public and as a component of films and other audiovisual productions. The term muzak is also used for background music in department stores and shopping centres - also known as royalty-free department store music - as well as in elevators, restaurants, hotels, airports and similar environments.

Certain musical genres such as smooth jazz or popular classical music are well suited for use as background music. Instrumental music is often preferred because it is assumed that human voices and sung lyrics attract too much attention. Ambient and lounge music also lack vocal elements or spoken lyrics. For example, Brian Eno composed ambient music for airports, which he wanted to distinguish from commercial music (see Ambient 1: Music for Airports). The effect of background music is controversial in music psychology because it is difficult to objectify.

Is background music for free?

Nope, the background music of the Proud Music Library is Production Music and an inexpensive alternative to the use of popular music in an production, e.g. music that is known through music charts. The use of well-known music titles is generally costly, as the publishers or authors are willing to pay for the rights of use due to their popularity. In some cases, rights holders do not release music catalogues at all.

Bright and joyful pop/rock groove with acoustic guitars, subtle bass and drums. A tight and punchy beat, but also restrained and friendly. There is also an alternative version with a playful synth melody line added over the groove, giving the track a more colourful, bouncy, children's music feel.
