This will be my music entry for NG Halloween 2012 .

A good number of people have seemed to like my songs that are on the "creepier" spectrum and a song came in to mind (With a little baroque touch). I also really wanted to mix bells in with piano as you will hear in this piece.

Instruments used were a Steinway Piano, Double Basses (te-te-te-tremolo), Tenor Voices, A Glockenspiel, and a Harpsichord. Hopefully this will appease recent demands. Enjoy!

(Non-laptop speakers recommended e.g earphones, decent speaker setup, it'll really help bring out the double bass)

Thanks man!
Good luck in your reviews.

Very Halloween indeed! Nicely done! 5/5!

WingoWinston responds:

Thanks mate

Awesome composition, it certainly gives me the halloween feel! I love that harpis also!

WingoWinston responds:

Harpsichords are a must. Plus, it makes an alliteration with Halloween. Absolutely perfect both musically and grammatically. Thanks!

Great composing there Winston, it's quality reminds me of the soundtrack of the Professor Layton games, it instantly creates an atmosphere of mystery.

Have you considered doing music for video games? I think you'd be great at that :) .

WingoWinston responds:

I would love too. And if anyone offered I would jump on it in an instant.

This is a very atmospheric Halloween song! I like it! Very nice use of the voices to amplify the mood. The glock is a little sharp at times but that's generally the nature of it. The ending seems a little too simple...though that also works in favor of the song. Overall it's a job well done and I'm interested in hearing your other stuff! :)

WingoWinston responds:

Thanks man! Yeah Glocks can shoot you in the shin at times. I felt the ending was simple too but like you said it does work with the song. I wanted a nice piano ending and it's what I did :P
