Standard Music Library is a PRS-affiliated Production Music library, formed as a collaboration between London Weekend Television (ITV) and Bucks Music Group in 1968. Initially, and fittingly, it released 68 albums on vinyl, the last being Brian Eno’s sought-after 'Textures' album. All our albums are now available in a variety of file formats, easily downloadable from our website - just a quick registration form to fill in is all that's needed. We have a large catalogue of contemporary and archive recordings, covering a wide variety of genres.
We also look after two additional catalogues:
Musica Britannica - A new catalogue, predominantly light classical, all curated by composer/director/producer James Clarke.
All Music Gallery - Large Czech catalogue, predominantly classical but also including Russian Songs, Croatian lounge music, Klezmer, and Gypsy Folk Songs.
We aim to have a high-quality little bit of something for everything, from orchestral and classical to dubstep, dance, dark atmospherics, exotica, drum n bass, indie, chill-out, ambient, jazz, on to World Music and an impressive archive catalogue stretching back to the late 60s (including recordings by Ron Grainer, Delia Derbyshire, Dudley Moore, George Martin & Sven Libaek).
Our composers include:
Dennis Bovell, Michael Chapman, Neil Cowley, Terry Edwards, Rob Ellis (Pinch), Brian Eno, Gordon Giltrap, Jonathan Goldstein, Christopher Gunning, Max Harris, Matthew Herbert, Nigel Hess, Brian Hodgson, Elliot Ireland & Alex Rizzo, Paul K. Joyce, Basil Kirchin, John Kongos, Daniel Lanois, Phil Manzanera, Janette Mason, Elan Mehler, Richard G. Mitchell, Alex Paterson, Marco Pirroni, Tony Russell, Ben Salisbury, Richard Thair (Red Snapper), Kirk Thompson (DJ Krust), Steven Stapleton (Nurse With Wound), Mike Vickers, Laurent Voulzy, Charles Webster and many more…
