    Sounds like the opening credits to a suspense movie.

    Nice job Ron, a lot of suspense and intrigue in this one.

    I thought the mix overall could have used a tiny bit more volume.

    Maybe I should play this in the background come Friday nite when all the 'trick or treaters' show up at my house wanting all my hard-earned candy! LOL! This piece reminds me of the music used in the old black & white horror movies. Very good Ron!

    Ron,


    I love this. It's very atmospheric at points. I like the way the horns are used. It's great ghost conjuring music.

    Good job. It's scary but at the same time playful - perfect spirit for a halloween piece (did I say spirit? )

    Well done.

    Yeah this would be great background music at a haunted house, playing while the trick-or-treaters are coming... Creative composition... Good job!

    Thanks guys

    Believe it or not, this started out as a serious piece and morphed quickly into what it is now. I had no control in it whatsoever, so I pushed it pretty quick to get it out of my system.

    That happens from time to time.

    Thanks again

    Ron

    very nice, Ron! I love the xylophone. xylophone is imperative for a "spooky" song! LOL!

    nice dynamics, great overall sound as usual. top notch!

    I will second the volume bit... I had to turn mine to max to hear it.

    Great tune otherwise. Definately works as a creep out tune. You seem to be mastering the libraries well. Its getting so I am starting to believe you have a real symphony orchestra at your disposal.

    Cheers
