I can write a piece for you. PM me with details such as length needed, video link of illusion, fast or slow.

Hello Mike,

I'm a composer/producer specializing in original music for magicians. I'd also be happy to create something for you, so I hope you'll visit my website for a listen!

By the way...Bill's a great guy, so either of us would be a solid choice.

Cheers,

Steve Saunders

Some of the music sung by "Cora Corman" (Haley Bennett) in the movie "Music and Lyrics" is more modern with a middle eastern feel and might be suitable.

Do you mean Egyptian music for vox populi in Egypt -- ancient Egyptian music - or something that sounds "egyptian" to western ears?

Magitracks - Temple of Shadows is egyptian sounding if memory serves..

Am I right on that Steve?

Great work btw.

I would try http://www.incompetech.com

The music is all completely free to download and use in live performances. There are many categories for you to choose from.

I have used this site also in the past to find just the right theme and did I mention its FREE!!!

For me, it wasn't dead. It just took a R E A L L Y long time to load...

The link, http://www.incompetech.com, took me right to the site and it loaded quickly. Any mp3 file I wanted to listen to or download also transferred quickly (depending on the size of the file, of course -- one music piece lasts 30 minutes!).

Good stuff, lots of variety, informative descriptions of each piece. Most are 2 to 3 minutes, but many are less than 1 minute in length.

Definitely worth checking out.

http://www.freeplaymusic.com is a similar site. Lots of options and catagories there as well.

I do believe there is a fee on http://www.freeplaymusic.com depending on the usage. It is all explained on the site.
