Cardistry Background Music

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by trickyman, Feb 7, 2011.

  1. I've been looking around and I can't seem to find any good instrumental background music. So my question is: what music do you use and where do you get it?
  2. Music.

    Best instrumental music for cardistry is post rock in my opinion. Bands like god is an astronaut, this will destroy you, maybeshewill, caspien and Explosions in the sky. Post rock is perfct, because in the one predominantly instrumental genre, it can be as heavy or as mellow as what ever cardistry you are presenting. It can also be epic and ambient, often very like movie soundtracks. If you're interested i can post a few songs here, just reply saying if you want heavy or mellow, or in between, it all tends to be epic. Im ot using epic as a scene word here by the way, i mean literallly epic. I think orbit brown used a caspien song in the last arthritis onslaught video.
  3. I would want more upbeat and less ambient, to answer your question.
  4. Have you heard this song?
  5. Actually i dont know how i forgot this one, i used in one of my own videos.

    Here's how to find good songs for cardistry videos:

    Step 1: Make a Pandora account
    Step 2: Make a "The Postal Service" station
    Step 3: Listen to the songs they suggest and use that song for cardistry
    Step 4 (optional): Use some kind of audio editing software to make an instrumental.

    This has worked really well for me. One song that I could suggest though would be Ottoman by Vampire Weekend. But get out there and find songs that you like that fit your style and don't rely completely on what others like. :)
  7. Yeah I've heard that on some preview somewhere.
  8. Ding ding ding! Pandora has helped me out alot in searching for music. The best part is you don't have to do any work to find good music, just listen and enjoy :).
  9. 'Bonobo' is one of my favourite artists and he has really atmospheric music that fits perfectly with flourishing / card magic, but it really depends on what kind of feel you are after... ie up-beat / mysterious etc... take a quick look at this quick snippet:

    This is a track called 'Ketto' by Bonobo... he has some other really nice tracks along this line eg:

    Hope this helps ;)
  10. I mainly use apple loops from jam packs. Great music, copyright and royalty free.
