Starts with Kolchak the Night Stalker, and suddenly becomes Buffy the Vampire Slayer!
The dramatic switch from film score to metal, then from light pop to jazz fusion… all feels entirely natural and in no way forced. Given how many mood changes there are, it is surprising even you can pull it off, but it works well.

sounds like the best atonal classical music. kinda like if Olatunji, Zappa, and Slip Knot got together for a power jam. tight edits, great sound.

Threads of Petrushka and L’après-midi d’un faune weaving in and out and of this piece (to my mind, anyway); whilst exploding into episodes of exhuberant, Speckish pandemonium. This has as many facets as a well-cut diamond and has been buffed up to sparkle by a skilled hand.

I’m with Cig and Panu in refering to Zappa and Debussy.
Very very impressive editing.

Shades of Tony Williams “Lifetime Emergency”.
Not scary at all “:0)

I like. For some reason, the screaming made me smile. Is that wrong? :)
Absolutely… not. Your comment made me smile.
btw - A lot of effort went into that scream. From the file description on Freesound: On the 30th of August, 2006, at Caixaforum ( Barcelona ), Freesound organized a multitudinous (more than 300 people) performance and sound recording called “La audiencia disponible”. This sound is one of those recorded that day.
So probably those people were having fun and not really in a state of terror anyway.
The couple of times I have used recordings of actual terror/pain I’ve felt really bad about it. Like somehow I’d trivialized it. Don’t think I’ll ever do that again.
Well, good. I’m not the heartless beast I feared I was… :D Thanks for sharing the background of the scream.
You know, I feel like that even when recording sad songs… like I’ve trivialized the sadness. To make myself feel better, I try to get into the same sad state I was in when the song was written. Ha- to feel better I make myself sadder.
