About Blazing Cactus Music
Blazing Cactus Music
Here at Blazing Cactus Music, we excite the senses through memorable emotive compositions. We believe that events, stories, and human experiences are enriched by the power of sound, and its ability to stir the emotions. Quality is always put above all else.
With our extensive experience in all aspects of music as it relates to film and television music production, as well as commercials, we know first hand what’s missing and what is desperately needed; real music made by real artists and musicians.
We understand that production and music supervisors need to save money without sacrificing quality, so we have made it our mission to provide the absolute best production music out there with the convenience of a “pre-cleared” music catalog offered at competitive prices for a truly unique one-stop, pre-cleared, source music shopping experience.
You need only begin to audition our music and your ears will tell you you’ve come to the right place. The quality of the music is ultimately what’s going to give a scene that magical emotional impact that takes it over the top, the same way a quality music score is so critical to the success of a film or television show.
We are proud to offer a wide variety of styles and genres to fulfill any musical need. If we don’t have the music you’re looking for we will create it with our music production teams offering quick turnaround – as fast as 24 hours in special circumstances. At BLAZING CACTUS MUSIC, we have combined the quality and intimacy of a boutique music store with the variety and convenience of a source music warehouse.
