So What Is Production Music

Production Music is the most commonly used term to describe music specifically written for use in film, tv production, commercials, radio, gaming, corporate videos the internet and more.

Production music is used for a vast number of media uses. Everything from "hold music" to the top Hollywood blockbusters use production music. Production music is written with the intention of enhancing a product or production. It is not written specifically for direct sale to the public - which is where it differs from commercial music which is sold by record companies around the world.

Since production music is written with media use in mind, good production music companies will aim to offer broadcast quality music, with alternative versions and submixes of each music track. This gives you more choice and flexibility in your edit. You can find details on how to search our production music including stings, submixes and alternative versions here
