Productions has been providing the magic community
with quality royalty-free music since 2000.
While our CD's have always been designed for magic
shows, we've discovered more and more clients using
the music for their promo videos, web sites, etc.
Video production houses, web masters and multi-media
producers are also among the numerous clients that
have purchased from us for hassle-free usage of
great music. Because the music is
royalty-free, customers are able to use the music
for a variety of purposes --large or small
scale-- without any concerns for filling out cue
sheets or registering tracks with performing rights
organizations (PROs) such as ASCAP or BMI.
greatest benefit to using music from Opus 1 has
always been the fact that the tracks were designed
with certain illusions or routines in mind; you may
find a better piece of music out
there, but you may discover the only way to get it
to 'work' is through extensive editing or
modification of your routine --and at a higher cost.
prices our extremely competitive as well, esp.
considering the number of tracks on any one of our
CD's. Tracks purchased individually through
our Download Store are extremely affordable, too,
with the average price per track being under $3.00.
These tracks also include the hassle-free license
for unlimited use.

multi-media market, and began recording tracks for
small radio and television productions. Recent accomplishments
