Everybody knows the forewarning tunes of John Williams’ legendary composition for the evil Galactic Empire in Star Wars.

Not only do we offer orchestra music, but also all variations of tension-building, dark and ominous stock music.

Once you have determined the direction you want your project to go intake, it is very easy to find royalty-free stock music for any suspenseful scenario within Sonic Liberty’s library.

Night on the Bare Mountain
ID: CL0114528
Album: Classical Music
This piece by Mussorgski was intended to paint a musical picture. The flowing, exhilerated melody gives a certain urge to the song that makes you nervous while listening to it. Finally, it dies down for a calm and romantic ending. 08:58
Bolero
ID: CL0114550
Album: Classical Music
The slow, monotonuous ostinato rhythm in the drum leads Bolero, resulting in a spanish nature. Still, it has a variety of timbres. The melodious solo stands in contrast to the static drum. 15:57
Overture The Year 1812 op. 49
ID: CL0114571
Album: Classical Music
The melodic opening is suddenly interrupted by timpani and a hectic change in the string section. The Year 1812 paints a musical picture of the Russian and French trupes in battle. The most distinc feature of this piece is the canon shots which can be heard occasionally, especially at the triumphant ending. 15:05
Der Ring des Nibelungen - The Valkyrie
ID: CL0218966
Album: Classical Music
The musical thungerstorm in Wagner's best known theme is heavily relying on the massive brass and timpani sections. A grimm and threatening sound determines the essence of the track. 05:05

Préludes I - La cathédrale engloutie
ID: CL0223709
Album: Classical Music
The sunken Cathedral is a dunning piece with a very slow tempo, which seems drowsy and monotonous. 06:20
Massa da Requiem - Dies irae
ID: CL1400331
Album: Classical Music
The funeral mass sets in with a dramatic choir theme supported by a full orchestra, accented by high-pitched flute-trills. The second part dies down to a mere whisper of delicate sounds. 02:15
