Dark strings, ochestra hits and creepy theremins are some of my favourite horror elements and what about backwards speech or psychotic laughter, that could be very creepy, like the black lodge in Twin Peaks.
I have some samples i could upload, but the problem is that it’s just from a cdr a friend gave me ages ago, i have no idea if there’s any copyright.
This ends at Thursday right?
Hope so because i haven’t got time to get goosebumps yet…it was harder than i imagined to make something spooky.
My best try so far is just a white noise with some effects and automations.
i’m pretty frustrated because the dj set i played this weekend went pretty crappy (due to space-issues for my laptop and the goddamn venue’s goddamned broken CD-player), and all i keep thinking is ‘i could have stayed at home and work on my DDRC15 submission instead of wasting my time playing music to disinterested audiences on a fucked up setup’ (told you i was frustrated).
i am going to try and get a proper submission in on time, but during the week i’ve got a wife and responsibilities to factor in so i might submit something half-finished or something.
hehehe if i would’ve done that i should’ve brought my own players as well, as there are none available in that place.
thinking about the frustration i vented above, to avoid getting this across as an issue which is completely to blame on some external factors, i must add that i had a bad vibe going already before going ‘on stage’, and i probably shouldn’t have smoked that too-strong joint someone offered me. the fact that i was unable to smoothly plug in my headphones prior to the show, was a proper sign that this was not going to go off as well as i expected. also, on booting the laptop, i accidentally booted it into Linux instead of Windows, and some more of that kinda omens happened.
my friends said it sounded cool, but i think they were either being friendly or just not so perfectionist as i am
anyway, i have to forget about it. i am currently working on my submission for the contest. it is a great round, again. really love this one, hard as hell to do properly but great fun as always.
Ahah I know that problem, I did a small gig in a boat with my band few years ago, smoked to much before the show, I still don’t know if we played at least one music this evening. Thankfully people did’nt went to see us.
