What is Production Music?

Production music
accounts for nearly
half of the music
you hear on TV.

Whether it’s adverts or programming most music used for broadcasts has been sourced from a production music library. The music you hear in the cinema, radio programming and adverts, social media videos and other content, corporate videos and at events, activations or conferences would also have some from a music library – so it’s pretty much everywhere.

You may hear it called library music, mood or stock music, but in the industry it is most commonly referred to as production music.

Production music vs Commercial Music.

Commercial music describes tracks created specifically for the listener’s pleasure whereas production music helps a visual medium – like a movie – tell a story.
