A Music Video Without Music!

I’m sure you already know how much of an impact music has on any given video, whether it be for a commercial, a movie, a TV show, an educational video, etc. I’m also guessing you’ve visited YouTube in search for a song and might have found it hard to find a version that “works”. The reason is, YouTube’s Content Management System is constantly searching for music that has been uploaded illegally.

Want to know how they find this music? Here’s an example: an artist or producer gives the YouTube Content Management System a “fingerprint” of a song and then the system recognizes all of the songs with that fingerprint, or a similar fingerprint, that have been uploaded illegally. After they’ve found a song, they take action and one of those actions is to take the audio out of the video completely. That’s why it is necessary for all of the video producers out there to use music that is royalty-free (unless you want to pay for each use, have ads displayed surrounding your video, or get your videos blocked by YouTube).

In case you didn’t see the blog last week, I posted a video of the sensational “Gangnam Style” by PSY. This time, I found the music video without the song attached to it. In its place are the sounds of dancers making steps on the floor, kids playing outside, water splashing when there’s a pool scene, wind blowing on the models, horses making horse sounds, and so on. It’s pretty interesting – take a look/hear: Gangnam Style Without Music

If you want to create your own YouTube video, nTracks has a lot of music to offer. Visit us at www.nTracks.com. If you’d like to use our free download of the month, you can find it here: The Pursuit

Hope everyone has a great week!

UWO’s Take on Gangnam Style!!

“Gangnam Style” is a single by PSY, a South Korean artist. The song and a funny dance (seen here: PSY Gangnam Style Video) has become viral around the globe.

The song was released on July 15, 2012 and the music video has been viewed 436 million times on YouTube as of today! The video has been a source for countless parodies, flash mobs around the world, covers by music artists such as Nelly Furtado and Maroon 5, and it has been featured on many media outlets.
PSY’s purpose of the song and dance is to poke fun at the high-class, sophisticated Gangnam district of Seoul.

UWO students created a video using their take on the Gangnam Style dance and it’s pretty hilarious!

Post your favorite videos of dancing styles! Use one of our tracks if you want! Our free track of the month is located here: The Pursuit

Halloween is Coming!!! Time to Get Scared!

Halloween is coming up so get ready to get scared! There are a bunch of scary movies being released this month and we want to know which one(s) you’re most looking forward to! My all-time favorite scary movie is The Amityville Horror. It’s such a classic and it gives me the chills every time I see it.

Some movies coming this month include: E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, Taken 2, Sinister, Grave Encounters 2, Paranormal Activity 4, Halloween, Silent Hill: Revelations 3D, Gregory Crwedson: Brief Encounters, and Sleep Tight.

What movie are you going to see?

Think about all the scary music played in a movie. Would it be as scary if there were no music at all? Here’s our take on scary music (And it’s the Free Download of the Month!). TIP: Use it as background music for your house when you’re handing out candy on Halloween!

Free track: The Pursuit

We hope you have an extra scary month ahead of you! And let us know what scary movie you’re going to see in theaters… If you can muster up the courage! 🙂
