Amazon Adds Free Music For Filmmakers

Amazon Studios said it is now providing "thousands" of movie score and soundtrack music for its filmmakers to use for video content, and no charge. Amazon did not say where it is sourcing the music and scores, which are divided into different kind of categories of music based on type of movie, emotion, and music genres.
