Hello everyone!

This is my latest tune. This song was created because of the Earthfiles.Com Podcast that I listened to a couple of weeks ago in regard to the strange sounds that are being heard and recorded all over the planet.

Many people describe these sounds as "The Horns of the Apocalypse". Other sounds heard are as if someone left their TV on with the volume cranked up somewhere in the distance, and yet more sounds heard are described as "white noise".

You can find videos of these sounds happening on YouTube.

The sound of the "Horns" I used in the beginning of the song.

The "TV" sound caught my ear because I have been recording sounds since I was a little kid. I know what voice sounds like backwards. And this "TV" voice was backwards!

When I took a snippet of the sound and reversed it, cleaned it up a bit and listened to it, I just about fell out of my chair! I heard the words "Let Me Out".

You can hear that voice clip at the end of the song. If you would like me to email you a copy of that clip so you can hear what it says for yourself send me your email address.

Make sure you go by Linda Multon Howe's www.earthfiles.com site for the latest news on this and other interesting stuff going on around the world. You can listen to the 2 Podcasts that got me started on this musical journey at http://www.earthfiles333.com/. Episodes 71 & 72 are the ones to listen to first.

I would like to give credit to the Portfolio Website of Michael Hara at www.michaelhara.com who created the cool graphic that I used for the song picture. Check his work out, it's amazing!

Hope you enjoy this!

I am not sure I caught any 'horn" sounds at the beginning. Cool soundtrack though. Thanks for posting.

Well, that's what they called the sound, I just went with that.

It sound more like someone groaning thru one of those vusvalus or what ever they are called.... LOL

It's the very 1st sound you hear after the wind starts up.

Nice job!
I wondered what you might do with those horns. They sound like giant rams horns or those ones they use in the Alps. This is pretty cool; the rhythm section is fabulous. I'm not crazy about the voice recordings but that's just me; I can see how they work with the story-telling. I took a copy, thanks.

Great stuff
and what a good idea. Lot of strange stuff out there, as I found out when I followed your link. Lot of hoaxes, but some things it seems, that just can't be explained adequately.

This is a powerful piece of music. I love the build up and the way it creates tension. I like the vocal clips btw, and the way you've weaved the various synth voices in and out. Percussion is just right. I especially like the wonderful bass-line that becomes more audible towards the end. Would have liked that further forward in the mix throughout really. Very nice indeed.

Fascinating soundscape. I like the way you build it - there's always something new coming in. The spoken words are compelling. Impressive work.

Great idea
Fascinating premise. I will have to check your links later on. Love the music, and the voice clips are integrated very nicely. Spooky. Reminds me a little of the Mothman Prophecies.
