"Bump in the Night"

Instruments: Percussion

Feel: Dark, Intense, Unnerving

Haunting noises and a tribal drum permeate this eclectic soundscape, and just before the first minute is up demonic breathy noises give way to a chilling silence before the return of the pounding drum. Caution: Very bass heavy.

"Pop Goes the Weasel"

Instruments: Strings, Percussion, Toy Piano

Feel: Dark, Eerie, Intense, Unnerving

Heavy bass drums and an string bass set the tone for this dark and menacing tone. The familiar refrain then plays, but is made expressive and almost violent as it is played on several string basses and cellos. The pace is rather quick and forceful, and after the quick ending, a jack-in-the-box plays, normally child-like, but made creepy because of the sinister music that came before.

"The House of Leaves"

Instruments: Harp, Violins, Percussion, Synths

Feel: Dark, Eerie, Intense, Suspenseful, Unnerving

A simple harp refrain plays a child?s melody, but is torn apart by discordant screeching noises, thumps, growls, and mechanical noises.

"Redletter"

Instruments: Strings, Synths

Feel: Dark, Eerie, Intense, Suspenseful, Unnerving

High-pitched strings play above a low drone, while fuzzy noises and cymbal rolls flow throughout. The high strings crescendo and quickly cut out as if a knife sliced their throats. A somber melody plays in the final minute, and the noises crescendo and come at you from every angle, symbolic of an attack and a gruesome finale.
