A video for ‘Soft Explorations, Vol. 6’

Music collection: Soft Explorations, Vol. 6For your listening pleasure — and in order to preview the royalty-free background music on our downloadable CD-collection “Soft Explorations, Vol. 6“, we’ve created a nice YouTube video that plays all the 11 tracks from this album, one after the next. With on-screen information about the track title and artist, and a nice, soothing nature photo to go along with it.



Advertising will play only at the beginning of the video; then, no ad-breaks during the 31 minutes of playtime. We hope you’ll find this useful and, well, just enjoyable.

The music in this video is great for falling asleep, studying, meditation, relaxation, yoga, focusing at work, etc. It’s also great music for use with nature footage, relaxing vacations, soothing footage of things like properties, landscapes, and as background music for relaxing video games.

You may want to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more such videos featuring stock music from our library. We put up videos of all our royalty-free music tracks and, sometimes, our CD-collections like this.

Life Unfolding, Vol. 1 – New stock royalty-free music collection

Life Unfolding Vol. 1 - background stock music collection from Shockwave-SoundWe are happy to announce our latest royalty-free music collection: “Life Unfolding, Vol. 1“.

This is album featuring 11 light background music tracks highly suitable for use with TV, film and advertising. This curated stock music collection contains light entertainment tracks, transparent and understated, but with a sense of hope and humanity.

The idea for the music on this album came from watching popular real-life docu-drama TV series such as “24 Hours in A&E” or one of many other family TV shows following ordinary people going through their ups and downs. We get up close and personal with real people like you and me, and the music a little bit quirky, a little bit light, heartfelt, always with a hope for a fulfilled life.

We feel that this kind of music is perhaps a bit underrepresented in a production music marketplace that perhaps too often focuses on hard-hitting, epic, very dramatic music, or even “overly emotional” music. Real people living real lives aren’t always about chasing extreme weather, jumping out of a plane, or going to war. Sometimes it’s just about having a hand to hold and somebody to talk to. Or finding the other sock.

We feel that the 11 hand-picked tracks on “Life Unfolding, Vol. 1” hits that spot. We hope you’ll find this music useful.

As with all our music collections, each track can also be licensed separately. Just search for each track title at
