The music is ‘The Aquarium’ by Camille Saint-Saens

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xj9QsQBx_UA

It’s from the work ‘The Carnival Of The Animals’, something everyone should listen to at least once in their lives.

If you read those comments below the vimeo video you can find a link to specific Philip Bloom film competition http://www.vimeo.com/groups/bloomcompo2 and there is a link to a blog post about the competition http://www.philipbloom.net/2008/10/06/new-film-competition/ where Philip Bloom states “This time instead of a title you have to use a royalty free track, Saint-Saens Aquarium in any way you want. Conventionally by setting it to beautiful pics or having it playing in the background in a scene, it’s entirely your choice.”

It’s three year old competion and Philip Bloom hosted the music file himself then so maybe he required a special permission to for people to use the track in that particular competition. File has been taken down now.

Camille Saint Saens COMPOSITIONS are public domain. So if you can find a recording that makes use of the Creative Commons license, then you will be able to use that specific recording in your video.

You’re in luck ,because the Petrucci music library has a performance/recording which you are free to use for commercial use. :) :)

(Someone please correct me if I misinterpreted the license, but I don’t think I did)

You can download the recording here:

http://imslp.org/wiki/Le_carnaval_des_animaux_(Saint-Sa%C3%ABns,_Camille)#Performances

Here is a summary of the license attributed to that recording:

For those of you who are studying music, the Petrucci music library ( http://imslp.org/wiki/Main_Page ) is one of the most incredible resources for studying classical music. I hope you find it useful.
