New Soundscape! Midnight in the Graveyard

I am proud to announce that I have started creating soundscapes again. Here is a description of the latest one:

"Go to the graveyard at midnight," they said. "It will be fun," they said. Now, as you stand with your back against the mossy walls at the back of the cemetery, it is anything but fun. In the flashes of lightning, you watch as a current of leaves swirls through the faded headstones. In the distance, a mournful church bell peals twelve o'clock. In the howling wind, you swear you can hear the voices of someone who isn't there. Across the churchyard, you can just make out the cemetery gate as it swings wildly on rusty hinges. If you could only make it there, you would be free of this living nightmare. In the twisted branches above, a murder of crows caws mockingly: "Run, Run, RUN!" This is a high-quality soundscape composition that I created for the 2017 Halloween season. For best results, experience with headphones. Enjoy!

Decorating the front porch

"Whenever candlelights flicker where the air is deathly still
That is the time when ghosts are present"

Standing on the edge, gazing into the wilderness
I look upon the forest with eyes enhanced by enlightened civilization
Eyes that have been conditioned to appreciate the beauty of nature
What a sight to behold!
Such a magnificent distraction
From those inside, gazing out of the wilderness
Who look upon me with eyes cultured by evolution
Eyes that have been conditioned to identify prey
What a sight to behold!

BOJO's Halloween Mix Tape 2017

I discovered the BOJO Halloween mix tapes about two years ago and have loved them ever since. The songs picked for each season often fly under the radar of casual music listeners. If you are looking for some unique music for your Halloween party, take a listen here:

P.S. BOJO has six years worth of Halloween mixes to explore, so don't stop at 2017. Grab your headphones one of these dark, stormy nights and immerse yourself.

Brace yourselves...


Is anybody here?

Look at this place. It's been four years since anyone has set foot in here. There are cobwebs everywhere, the pictures are outdated, it's so... dark.

It's perfect.

A brand new Halloween season is upon us. We have some work to do, so let's get started.

Does anyone have some appropriate housekeeping music?

Halloween Night

Happy Halloween everybody. A perfect Halloween evening. 

Dressed as my shadow, I filled a bowl with Halloween candy and
spent the night on the porch, dead still... waiting...

Illustrating The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

I spent the afternoon illustrating The Legend of Sleepy Hollow with some of my own photography and art. Here are the first six pages:

The Fog - A Haunted Gallery Remix...

The ghost story told at the beginning of John Carpenter's movie "The Fog," is one of the best campfire tales out there. It makes its listeners a reluctant part of the story. I've added some of my own sound effects into the background to help immerse you as you listen. Enjoy.
