What On Earth?

earthMusic is an original music library from RTS nominated composer Al Lethbridge.
It is intended for the use of natural history, science and adventure filmmakers, and the creators of human stories of all kinds.

The library is available to download, or on USB stick. The download link and/or stick may be requested via earthmusic.biz,

What They Say:

'..great music, and lovely to have it as an antidote to other over-saturated music libraries!..'  John Steventon - film editor - City In the Sky - BBC2

‘..  this wonderful library..’  Martin Elsbury - award winning film editor - Planet Earth, Blue Planet.

‘ .. edgy, and contemporary.. a vital extra voice in the storytelling process..’  -
 Darren Flaxtone award winning film editor - River Monsters, Wild China, Madagascar.

"..as always it's such a pleasure to work with your music! There is something that makes it easy to mix in with everything. It was a really enjoyable mix.."  Richard Lambert - Senior Dubbing Mixer at Films@59  (re- Castro's Secret Reef - the score for this film is made up entirely of earthMusic tracks) 

“ Al Lethbridge is an incredibly versatile & talented musician. He’s written the music for a number of our shows and always produces fantastic scores. We’ve also used his extensive music library which has been another very good way to work with his music. I’d thoroughly recommend working with him.”  - Sarah Cunliffe - executive producer and CEO Big Wave Prods.

'..just to say it’s a lovely library !..'  Dave Birch - Audio Manager EarthTouch

' I muse now and again on what a nightmare it would have been trying to source the music from Audio Network. Your music has been a terrific asset in the edit. It means we can open up space and look at those amazing stills and landscapes. The execs loved the score and waxed lyrical about the combination of Welsh tunes and Latin American instruments.
Many thanks to you. We really did get something unique from your collection.' 
John Parker - Film Editor - Patagonia with Huw Edwards - BBC1

‘..you have some absolutely amazing tracks!.. Katrina Costello - Director -The Silver Branch (75 minute Doc Feature for Sea Fever Productions)

‘..I downloaded your library and it's such a pleasure to browse through the tracks (which usually is quite a tedious task). The diversity is amazing and I just wanted to thank you for creating this.. Mayank Susngi - Film Editor - Mumbai
