Unauthorized Self-Filesharing!

Dear Adsense People, I have a problem.

I’ve been getting more and more notices that pages on my website are being denied advertising because of “Copyrighted material: Unauthorized Filesharing”. There are options to have people review these notices – which I have done, and the notices have all been reinstated, leaving the future of incompetech more uncertain.

They are basically saying that distributing music that I wrote is “unauthorized filesharing”. They don’t tell me who they THINK owns the assets – which would be great to know.

There is also no way I can find to get a note to the reviewers explaining that: This is MY music, and I can share it if I like!

If you are at Google Adsense, or you know of someone who is – please have them contact me at

Last Night in Miami!

Street Party

This is my impression of a tv show street party scene scored by a composer from the 90s.

Abuse of Power!

Man Down

This is the Miami Nights main theme motive, but really quite sad. You know what’s awesome? This “string synth” is 8 actual cellos and 12 violas… multi-tracked 4 times. Technology! So much power, you can’t help but abuse it!

All the tension!!!

I Can Feel it Coming

Just your average, run-of-the-mill tension filler music… Or IS it!? Yeah, it pretty much is. This does feature a poorly played guitar synth, though… so it is a stand-out in that way. If you were here for tension-building music, you already have this piece… Move along.

Yes. I know about the spelling error.

Hot Pursuit

RUN! It is the Hemiola Monster!!!! We just need to get to the bar! It doesn’t seem to want to cross the bar! Oh my GOD! It has friends!! No wait, that’s just a standard clave pattern… (no, I’m not explaining this description OR what is wrong with my head.)
