Here's an update to a comp I've been working on forever. This focuses on library music with a baroque or classical feel and some folk elements mixed in. Perfect background music for the upcoming fall season.
Deep Cuts and Dark Beats focuses on the darker side library music and the variety of styles that fall under that umbrella. I kind of think of it as a soundtrack to a horror film that was never made, or the library companion piece to the Written In Blood series. It's more atmospheric than melodic, but there are some great beat driven tracks and eerie pieces that should please any horror music aficionado.
Over the last few years my love for obsure soundtracks from the '70s shifted to library music. This music was produced for film, TV, and radio, but rarely released to the public. I've been compiling a large collection of library music and will start posting compilations in a thematic series. Here's volume 1. Some of these songs will be familiar to fans of the genre, but for those of you who haven't heard this music before, you're in for a real treat. (8/27/2012)
Update: I've been going through all my old comps and giving them a dusting off. They now have better sound quality, tighter segues, and some new art. This is my first of the library mixes, so thanks for being patient while I get to the others.
The A Capella Scream is the second volume in the Written In Blood series. This Horror-Fi edition features higher quality music than previous versions and a few alternate tracks. When I first put these mixes together some of the soundtracks weren't released so I recorded the songs from VHS and DVDs. Since then there have been quite a few scores that have finally come to see the light of day, albeit in limited editions. Enjoy!
I dug deeper into the vaults of horror to find some rare gems and newly remixed tracks for an expanded edition of Written In Blood Vol. 8. The soundtrack odyssey continues with The Piano String Strangler, focusing more on the '80s synthesizer scores while still including some haunting melodies from the '60s and '70s.
Finally breaking away from the faux View-Master packaging, I decided to go the Super 8 film box route for my DJ flyers. Here are a few that would've been fun to have on your home projector, you know, after showing friends slides from your last vacation over cocktails.
This special edition of Written In Blood Vol.1 is an essential addition to any audiophile or discerning horror fan's collection. Now in Horror-Fi Stereo! With better sound quality, volume balanced tracks, and improved segues. Covering 5 decades of romantically macabre soundtrack music with over 140 songs; the Written In Blood series includes never before released music and classic themes from horror and thriller genres.
