Information on royalty free music and possible uses

Royalty-free music - what does that actually mean?

GEMA free music - information

GEMA-free music primarily means that no fees have to be paid to the collecting society GEMA for its use. However, GEMA-free music titles are not automatically license free or free to use in any project.

The german PRO "GEMA" (Gesellschaft für musikalische Aufführungs- und mechanische Vervielfältigungsrechte - Society for musical performing and mechanical reproduction rights) administers the copyrights of the artists (musicians, composers) who are organized in it. In the case of music subject to GEMA, for example, there is a duty to pay royalties for mechanical reproductions or public performances. These fees (royalties) are in turn paid to the musician (author) on a pro rata basis.

Royalty-free music is music that is not registered with GEMA. In addition, the musician / composer (author) is not a member. Thus for royalty-free music no levy to GEMA has to be performed.

After a one-time purchase of a license (acquisition of a right of use = licensing), no further costs are incurred by GEMA for the music user / licensee. For example, for mechanical reproduction or for public performance (e.g. trade fairs & events). In addition, the time-consuming filling out of lists (cue sheets) to register used works is no longer necessary. So you save not only money, but also time.

Incidentally, the same applies to other collecting societies outside Germany. In Austria, the equivalent is called AKM free music and in Switzerland SUISA-free music.

Fields of application of our music

TerraSound's music is especially popular with small and medium-sized companies and is used in a wide variety of projects. Here are three examples.

IMAGE FILMS - A well-produced image film with the right background music ensures a stronger image bond. Through viral distribution on the Internet, e.g. via YouTube and Facebook, the image film can also achieve a high level of attention. The topic of sound branding also fits in with this.

MUSIC ON HOLD - Why not sweeten the waiting time of your customers a little? A coherent music on hold, with which your company can identify, can have a positive effect on your customers despite the waiting time. I will be happy to advise you on which music best suits your company. Info about a commercial Telephone announcement including speaker you can find here!

ADVERTISEMENT - Short, concise, informative. A commercial should arouse interest in a brand or product in the shortest possible time. Here, the chosen music is a decisive factor for the effectiveness. In my category "Music for commercials" I have compiled some titles that can be used very well here according to experience.

Suitable background music in videos - arouse emotions with professionally produced tracks!

Suitable background music in videos - arouse emotions

A video without background music may look nice, but the emotional effect on the viewer is rather moderate. If, on the other hand, a video is accompanied by suitable music, not only is the expressiveness of the moving images enhanced, but emotions are also aroused in the viewer.

In general, the Music as a very effective tool for creating a desired emotional mood with the viewer. That's why you have to be careful when choosing music - not every background music fits to the video / picture. The importance of background music in a video should not be underestimated, because it can change the effect of your film strongly in the positive, but also in the negative.

To find a suitable music that also goes down well with the audience (target group) is sometimes easier said than done and can be quite time-consuming under certain circumstances. I will gladly support you in your search for suitable Royalty-free music from my catalog.

FAQ - GEMA free music

Which music is not subject to GEMA?

Music that is outside the jurisdiction of GEMA is free of any GEMA fees. Some types of music that are usually GEMA free include:

  • Music that is not protected by copyright: Pieces of music whose author has been dead for at least 70 years are license-free and therefore not subject to GEMA.
  • Own music: If you have composed your own music titles and are not a member of GEMA yourself, the music is automatically GEMA-free as long as it does not fall under a GEMA publisher or author membership.
  • Music with Creative Commons license: Some artists choose a Creative Commons license for their music, which allows others to use the music as long as they comply with the terms of the license. In this case, the music is not subject to GEMA.

However, it is important to note that there are exceptions and to make sure that you carefully review copyright terms and requirements before using music in any way.
