    Default Horror scores

    I've found it to be quite enjoyable to listen to the score to something scary--say, the soundtrack to Alien. This occurred to me after watching 'Alcest--What's in my bag?', the often brilliant clips on youtube from Ameoba Records in LA. The guy from Alcest mentioned that very score by J. Goldsmith. I happened to watch the movie in theater the other day and I thought 'why not just listen to this by itself?'

    So there is obviously something quite wrong with me that I enjoy this so much but I do. I looked at lists to see what other people like. I made a playlist based on those suggestions. Then I realized that video games often have excellent scores--Mikko Tarmia's work with Frictional Games as a prime example. It's impossible to overstate how effective, how inseperable the score is in creating the 'horror' atmosphere. For me gore and whatnot is boring and uninteresting, but something eerie and impossible is excellent.

    My hope in sharing this is to find things to add to this playlist and also to share this discovery with others of my ilk.

    Here's the playlist:

    This genius is going unappreciated in our time...the score to Outlast.

    Kawai's score to Ringu is top shelf. Left it off the original list because no excuse sir. This track is the best one. From about 2:00 to 3:00 is exquisite. Zimmer's score to The Ring is also excellent.

    Indeed. I was reflecting on this not an hour ago. I remembered how much joy it brought me when, in high school during lunch on a Friday, I convinced the student DJ to play:



    I was disappointed a bit when so much of the student body turned to each other as if somebody cut a rank juicy fart, just these looks of disgust and confusion, but I comforted myself with the thought that I couldn't help their poor taste. People be like 'wtf are we listening to?'

    I guess all that matters is that we can act the part quite well.

    Thanks Joe! This was indeed the first list I used to compile my own. Some odd selections--XTRO???--but indeed, great scary movie score.
