Futuristic Sci-Fi Synth: Royalty Free Music for Ultramodern Noir Thrillers

Michael Maher

Find the perfect tense or eerie synth soundtrack for your epic sci-fi film with these royalty free songs.

When shooting sci-fi films, there are a few key things you should take into account. You want to make sure you establish the right look. We have previously discussed five ways you can nail the Sci-Fi look, but part of figuring out the look is deciding why type of future your film takes place in.

Does you film have a noir style to it, or is it a more lighthearted paradise?

Once you know the look you’re after, you can then set the atmosphere by choosing the perfect background music. Synthesizer music has long been used by sci-fi and horror filmmakers because it creates the perfect type of suspense.

This curated collection of royalty free music features our favorite tracks to complement the darker futures we may one day see. These songs use pulsing synthesizers that can create a foreboding mood or mysterious atmosphere.

Tune into this playlist and let your mind escape. Build the future you want to bring to life in your sci-fi thriller.
