Happy Halloween, Everybody!
I’m posting a quick piece of music with a John Carpenter-esque sound. An edited version of this was recently used in “The Tale of Cuthbert,” a short film This is the full version of a piece I recently recorded for the short film “The Tale of Cuthbert,” which won 6 awards in the 50 Fifty Reel Challenge, including “Best Music.” It was a lot of fun to do, and it’s nice to be recognized for doing something I love.
I was deliberately going for a sound that is reminiscent of John Carpenter’s scores for films like “The Thing,” The Fog,” and maybe just a bit of “Halloween.” Therefore, I relied heavily on synth bass, harpsichord and some blaring french horns.
It’s called “The Thing in The Fog,” which seemed a much more clever title when I first thought of it.
