The Midnight Ride of Ichabod Crane

Imagine the story of Ichabod Crane's terrifying ride home told exclusively through sound. Starting from the festive comfort and security of the Van Tassel annual harvest party and ending at the infamous covered bridge, this soundscape brings you along for the ride in all the horrifying suspense of real time. You have never heard a soundscape bring a story to life in every spooky detail like this, I promise.

The goal is to create this piece with as much attention to detail and quality as possible. At the moment I do not have a presentation date. Rest assured, however, I will keep you updated as much as I can and entice you along the way with production extras like below. Enjoy!

This stuff is really evocative--and inspiring. I don't think a great many pay as much attention to sound in designing a haunted trail or house attraction. It's important. As is smell and lighting, I think. To use these smartly, psychologically to evoke atmosFEAR is a splendid thing.

I can't wait to hear this. Also I wish I could frame this drawing and hang it in my house; I've never known anyone to put so much art into something that is essentially a reference document.
