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.
As of October 2020 the library has it's own online platform at www.earthMusic.online Here you can register and audition/download/make your own playlists.
The library is also available to download, or on USB stick. The download link and/or stick may be requested by contacting me here.
