The Fugue Platform Offers Royalty-Free Music

Music is a crucial part of video production, but many stock music databases are packed full of lifeless, boring tunes; the Fugue platform offers royalty-free music that's actually nice to listen to by its own merit. Designed by creative agency Icon8, the pool of over 700 songs can be used by anyone for videos, games, or UI, with the only requirement being a link back to the Fugue platform itself.

What truly separates Fugue from other stock music databases is that the songs in it were initially written for people rather than for use in a stock library. The difference might seem subtle, but it's actually tremendous. When writing for stock, composers end up trying to envision the uses for their songs as they write them, leading to cliche melodies and soulless compositions. Every song on the Fugue platform was composed for people rather than libraries, and Icon8 merely organized those songs as they saw fit.
