Caligari: An Exquisite Corpse

The Cabinet Of Dr. Caligari (Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari) is a 1920 silent horror film considered the quintessential work of German Expressionist cinema. It tells the story of an insane hypnotist who uses a somnambulist to commit murders. The film style is creepy and features bizarre leaning, twisted, angular landscapes and sets.

To accompany the classic film, eleven composers from the Chain Tape Collective collaborated via exquisite corpse method to produce two entirely new soundtracks.

Those soundtracks are now housed at the Free Music Archive in time for Halloween. Artwork, liner notes, and more information are available from the Chain Tape Collective. The complete film with the new soundtracks is available for free download from the Internet Achive under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike license.

Some of these Creative Commons licensed tracks may sync beautifully with the soundtrack for your Halloween festivities. Just try not to get creeped out of your skin.

Happy Halloween from the Free Music Archive!

Halloween is one of our favorite holidays, and of course we've made sure to gather some of our creepiest, best tracks for your pumpkin carving party, trick-or-treat tour, or haunted house cocktail hour. We've curated a collection of creepy stuff - check it out!

Listen to a waterphone, the source of creepy screechy sounds:

A look into the studio of a Halloween soundtrack artist, via Atlas Obscura: "We Are Still Rattling Chains and Crunching Leaves to Signal Halloween"

Proof that (audio) ghosts exist! "Radio Ghosts Have Haunted the Airwaves for Nearly a Century"

FMA music (in this case, Keshco) is being used in creepy film trailers! Here's one:

A huge collection of horror films in the Public Domain - some with names like "The Human Monster" - here's Nosferatu via Horrortheque

 

More than four hours of creepy prog: Il Suono Scuro 

And of course, we've put together another mix of FMA tricks and treats! Click here for this year's spooky party mix, or check out mixes from years before: 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014

Halloween Songs from around the Web

The web - get it!? anyway, this photo is "Dewy spider web". Licensed under Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 via Wikimedia Commons.

It's the time of year when everyone is running around in costumes asking for candy (or maybe that's just a typical day for you - for most of us, anyway, that type of thing is limited to Halloween)... so we've been crawling the web for some of our Halloween favorites (all licensed Creative Commons, of course). 

Here at the Free Music Archive, we've got quite a collection, including Oddio Overplay's picks - 52 Horror Releases

There are also mixes on ccMixter.org via Mind Map That Music: "Halloween, Halloween, Halloween" and the "Trick or Treat Edition

And selections from archive.org's Netlabels - selections from ambientcollective and Happy Puppy

Or if you don't want to stray far from the FMA, you can browse stuff tagged Halloween, or selections from WFMU's Dark Night of the Soul

Happy haunting!
