Tight Deadlines and Halloween looming

smartassmusic.comWe’ve been involved with some interesting projects lately.
I had a call for more arranging for the Sugababes forthcoming album. We’re used to short deadlines but I emailed back at 10am asking when this was needed by and left to take my dogs out. When I returned I noticed that the producer had asked for the track by “late lunchtime”! It was done but I can’t say it was the most relaxing work I’ve done.
We’re also arranging a great deal of music for Sky TV but it’s confidential so that’s as much as I can say about that.
With the Autumn quickly approaching I thought it would be a good idea to add some Halloween music to our Royalty Free site. I added a fun Halloween track in a hip hop style with some spooky sound effects, harpsichord and church organ (listen) but also a couple of more serious tracks which I really like:

“Dark Skies” is a dark, eerie orchestral piece with a piano stating the main melody. This would actually make a great backdrop for any slightly eerie (Tim Burton style) video.
The other piece is “Shadows”, which is very much in the style Danny Elfman with strings, celesta, choir and a descending harmonic pattern. This is eerie and sweet at the same time. See what you think.
