The latest online music library catalogues hundreds of tracks and serves as a valuable resource to documentary filmmakers looking for high-quality but inexpensive overlay music for productions.

This catalog is perfect for documentaries – underscore beds, world instruments, and moody soundscapes.

An all-new catalogue of digital music for documentary films is now made available to the public by Pasadena-based recording company 5 Alarm Music (http://www.5alarmmusic.com). The music library, named Lift Music Factual, catalogues hundreds of tracks from over 100 composers that cover a wide spectrum of emotions and styles for a variety of applications.

“This catalog is perfect for documentaries – underscore beds, world instruments, moody soundscapes.” exclaimed Sarah Scarlata, 5 Alarm Music’s East Coast Music Director and Producer.

5 Alarm Music is an independent production music library for film, television, radio, and commercials. Lift Music Factual is their label’s latest library which houses music for productions which can be retrofitted to documentaries, infomercials, short indie films and other similar productions that need musical scores. This is important to filmmakers, as music is integral to every production to highlight emotions, add texture to the film and procure interest. As novelist Leo Tolstoy puts it: “Music is the shorthand of emotions.”

Production music is the inexpensive solution for media producers who look for scores to accompany their video productions. Unlike popular music publishers, 5 Alarm Music owns all of the copyrights of their Lift Music Factual collection and can license these to documentary filmmakers at a fraction of the cost. This is especially noteworthy when compared to licensing popular music, which may run to thousands of dollars depending on the popularity of the performer and the songwriter.

The production music library Lift Music Factual is also a convenient solution for media producers when compared to specially-commissioned work. Hiring a songwriter to produce a musical score, performers to interpret the music, and a studio to record the performance is not only prohibitively expensive, but takes so much time to produce. Lift Music Factual offers a broad range of musical styles, genres and emotions which documentary film producers and editors can access in one seating. Selecting music is also a breeze, as the wide variety of emotions and musical styles found in Lift Music Factual is organized into ‘spaces’, tagged specifically under tabs such as Dramatic, Quirky and Playful (as far as emotion is concerned) or under categories such as Science and Technology, Life Stories or The Natural World.

There are more, as Lift Music Factual tries to cover all music needed for documentary program. The library is also relatively young (it was launched in May 2013) and its music catalogue is still evolving, such that additional ‘spaces’ are being commissioned continually and users are encouraged to suggest new ones.
