2. Find an emotional fit. Unless the idea is to use contrast (for example, a fight scene with classical music in the background), it’s best to select a track that fits the tone of your scene or video. Picture your target viewer. A corporate executive may not appreciate hip-hop or hard rock, but younger audience surely will. 3. Choose between with vocal and non-vocal tracks. Vocals are generally best for films and montages, but they tend to be distracting under dialogue. If you pick a vocal track for your video, make sure the words are in line with what’s happening in the particular scene. 4. Choose between music library and original composition. You can use tracks from a royalty free music library or hire a composer to score your project, depending on your project. However, remember that original compositions are costly, while royalty-free music is more cost-effective and still high-quality. In any case, do not ever use copyright or commercial tracks to avoid legal woes and normally staggering costs. 5. Pick real-instrument tracks. Avoid music that uses digitized instruments and effects. They can only sound cheap and low-quality. Always go for real, organic instrumentation. 6. Manage duration limits. Don’t feel restricted by the track you have chosen! Instead, look for a way to make it work for your video, such as by cutting it up and looping sections as necessary. 7. Decide on start-to-end or bookended. In most cases, music is more powerful when injected from section to section in the video to accentuate certain points. Music that is forced all throughout can cause viewer fatigue. End-to-end music may go well with demo reels and montages, but for a corporate video or film, a bookended approach is often more appropriate. Finally, when choosing a bookended approach, it’s often best to use a single track for opening and closing the video.
