Background Music

Music used in a situation in which music is not the primary goal. For example, background music may be played at a convention where people gather or in a commercial for a food product. Background music is used in marketing to produce a desired response. For example, it may be used to produce a calming mood at the convention or to make viewers of a commercial excited about buying the product.
