"Slow and Mysterious"
Sounds as if you need the rare version of "Swing Low Sweet Chariot" done by the ever mysterious Alvin and the Chipmonks.
Nobody will "Name THAT Tune!"

Metallica's Fade to Black.
Hey in my world that is slow and mysterious, everything i listen to is much faster and harder!

It's due, in part, to me being so odd... :D

"Satan's Stowaway" from my CD "Fade To Black" is one I'd suggest...
not plugging my own stuff... :wink:

It's kind of hard to recommend music when I don't know anything about the illusion, but have you thought about Boadicea by Enya? We used it in our bedroom scene last season and it was the HIT of the haunt as far as music goes. People came out commenting on how creepy the music was. Enya hums all the way through the song. No words are spoken. If you've ever seen Stephen King's Sleepwalkers (the movie with all the cats) and watched the credits, Boadicea is playing. The crew wants to use it again this season. I'll think about it.....

Good question, xxxdirk! Some peeps fail to see how important music can be. It can make a good scene great and a so - so better.

I second that! Enya is one of the only recording artists that truly gives me the creeps ... Well, her and K-Fed....

Are you looking for something strictly instrumental or would something with vocals (verse, or just humming?) work?

02-06-2007, 12:05 PM
W vocals or just instrumental, just has to be cool....

Check this stuff out....
In Sadness, Silence and Solitude
by Raison D'Etre
You can find their cds on E-bay.

Hmmm, I like Enya's creepiness, too. Or Enigma, even.

One of the Indie guys in our town has some interesting music, too.

Again, not exactly sure what you are looking for or exactly what mood you want to hit with it.

Maybe something by Delerium?

Slow and mysterious....

Older music by Sarah McLaughlin or Tori Amos?

How about classical?

Apocolyptica has some great stuff on cello - (they did covers of Metallica's music on cello, as well).

So many good ideas, you guys and girls rock! Keep em coming....

Oh, oh, oh!

Take a listen to "Memphisto" by Depeche Mode

Have you ever listened to "God Speed You! Black Emperor."? From what you are describing they have some works that would be a very good fit for what you are looking for. They have some works that just build tortuously.... incredible long drawn out mood music.

This work from their site is a GREAT example of it.... just to note there is a LONG build up to this point in the work....


... and the rest of the site....

Miranda Sex Garden and Stories from the Moon. Good creepy things.
