This is one of the most spooky secret mixter entries. Get on the slow motion dancefloor with DJ Gurdon Ark, this dancefloor is a tomb :o

I prefer beatless to beats, but there is something to be said for pacing so slow that the zombies can comfortably dance. :)

Yeah this is very scary. I wish i had this track on halloween night. I would have scared every kid in my neighborhood to death.
This would really be good for any scary movie, freddy jason, The Saw Movies. any of them. Great work G.

I had it ready by Halloween, and wanted to post it then, but I didn’t want to skip ahead.

My dream would be for someone to take this as a youtube soundtrack for something appropriately spooky. Who knows—maybe I’ll be that youtube someone.

Well I must say you have an imagination with words and a way with laying down sounds to create pictures. another creative file of yours. nice

I’m grateful for that praise, and in particular because I always find you to be someone who takes a fresh approach—something I value in musical things.

Nice work! I really had hard time trying to find the seeds to the sounds. You forced me to listen to my own mixes (which I should do more often).

I really love the way you treated my work. I wish this is the way I would be sampled in the future, too, as dark ambient is very close to my heart. The soundscape is pretty hounting, and I can imagine this in a scary film or game soundtrack.

All hail to Lisa DeBenedictis, and her beautiful voice. This mix would be quite different without the woe from b/Below.

I had always loved your mixes before, but I did not realize until I “drilled down” into them how much we love the same types of music. My original intention was to use a series of samples as synth envelopes, and do something a bit more melodic and chill. But then I thought that you have so many eerie sections that it might be fun to do a more traditional “samples mix” instead.

I am a huge Lisa fan. I was listening to “Tigers” on my mp3 player this week, and hoping that the day comes when she’s got the time to generate more great material.

My mix is not really worthy of your material. I certainly enjoyed doing it, though, and I’m glad you enjoyed the approach, too.

I attributed every mix I could remember using among the five or six of your pieces I started from, but I’m concerned I may have missed one. Now that I think of that, I’ll go back and listen to them all, and see if I can find all the seeds, myself :)

Well, you couldn’t miss this “rendez-vous”, of the secret remix. This one is maybe the most “Halloween’esque” by far.
In the real life of everyday, i’m painter (just decorative painter) but i’ve to have a look to the work of the “artists painter”, cause it’s a great souce of bright idea for my job. I think that we can compare easely the painting with the music: structure, colors, harmony, ..etc. The method stays the same and then a song makes you think to a painting and vice versa. Your remix makes me really think to the work of “Jerome Bosch”…dark and anguished univers. Great sentations..!

Thank you so much for a kind review. To put into music a Bosch moment would be a goal I wish I could achieve.

Blade Jogger might work, too.
