Danosongs: Mars and Stars


Uploaded by Augustin Enache on Dec 15, 2011

I ran into this piece of music completely by chance. It was used as background to a video demonstrating a commercial product. I enjoyed its meditative quality and actually watched the video advertisement several times just to listen to the song. After contacting the author of the ad, I discovered Danosongs and his royalty free music.

Music for Websites – New Mars and Stars Royalty Free Piano Instrumental
I’ve been getting some requests to create music for websites that is more mellow. This is especially for photographers who need intros and entire songs for portfolio slides-shows. My piano-based instrumentals have been getting used allot for this so this week I created a new one called “Mars and Stars”. It has kind of a new age relaxing feel. This song is also available to use under creative commons licensing as royalty free background music. Commercial use is allowed.

I started this site in 2008 as a place to post a few tracks I recorded as a singer/songwriter. Then one day I added some instrumentals I created for fun. Since then the requests from visitors for music for YouTube videos, games, indie films, and slideshows has been non-stop.

Wikipedia: Meditation music
Meditation music is music performed to aid in the practice of meditation. It can have a specific religious content, but also more recently has been associated with modern composers who utilize meditation techniques in their process of composition, or who compose such music with no particular religious group as a focus. The concept also includes music performed as an act of meditation.
