This is awesome! I love those flutes they sounds like they're imitating a locomotive :)
I get a kind of beetlejuice vibe from hearing this especially the section at 01:36
Very nice composition!

Azhthar responds:

Thanks a lot! The Beetlejuice soundtrack was actually a bit of inspiration for this, especially in the section you mean ;) Always wanted to make such a polka like stuff with these offbeat brass chords :)

Masterfully done my friend. you were able to keep a dark atmosphere but with a very upbeat melody i really like the change of modes at 2:02 and at 2:30 but i feel like youe run out of ideas on the ending thats just me though maybe a waltz version of one the dominant motif here wouldve been great :)

also i love the horns you use is it live or a sample library if its a sample library what did you use?

anyway i really love this one. good fucking job

Azhthar responds:

Hey! Thanks a lot!You and ZipZipper mastered the music I want to do even before I knew you two so it means a lot to me to get such a positive feedback! The brass I used was the brass symphony series by soundiron. If you thought it was life horns it means they did a graet job in sampling :)

Chuckles like children...how, exactly? Medium rare? In a stew pot? Something like that, I would suppose. This is such a creepily fun and energetic song, Azhthar! Those crazy squeaks are hilariously freakish, and your overall instrument choices and composition are simply fantastic.

I really love how you mixed it up at the end with something completely different, it really spices up the Halloween vibe. Interestingly enough, while I know that this is an homage to the great Chuckles by thespazicat, it also feels like it would be incredibly appropriate set against some of the infamous Joker's shenanigans. He's got that whole lunatic clown thing down pat, so I can't help it when my mind wanders in that direction. Throw in a few psychotic bursts of laughter and--voila! So much clowning around...

Suffice to say, I love it. This is an awesome Halloween-themed track and I think it has an excellent chance at taking one of the prized top spots in this year's Halloween Spooktacular. Good luck!

Azhthar responds:

Rare to medium rare actually ;) Thanks a lot for such a positive feedback. I thought about recording some psychotic laughters. Acutually I wanted to make a completely dark and evolving intro finish it with a squeak followed by a laughter and then start the real track but I always do these intros and I chose to make it different this time putting the music more into the focus... So the laughters were thrown out :) It would be awesome to score some silly fight of the Joker´s shenanigans in the old trashy Batman series but I guess this time is over. Sigh...
Good luck to you, too! Your track was really awesome, too! Ahhhh... I love musicboxes :) Simply the best instrument out there. I whish somebody could invent a real midi driven musicbox where you can make thousands of tracks for one musicbox. I think I would go to write a whole concert/symphony or opera for this musicbox. Not that I´m able to do this but I would start to learn this just for this instrument...

i like it, glad you were inspired!

Azhthar responds:

Thanks! Your awesome creepy clown art was fitting perfectly :)

this drives me insane, it is AWESOME

Azhthar responds:

Thanks a lot! :)
