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.

Music for Video: Horror Soundtrack Music for Producers

After you've wiped all the makeup off your zombie actor friends, it's time for the real scarey part -- picking out music for your Horror flick. Music to Video has assembled a mix that will send shivers down your spine, make all the ghouls dance, and get grandma to climb out of her grave, just to tell you to turn down the volume.

Here's a trick! Try mixing these tracks with the Prelinger Archives for a real treat. May I suggest their footage of a Halloween Party or Experiments in the Revival of Organisms

 

1. Lee Rosevere (website, CC BY-NC-SA) - The music has a heavy-handed foreboding feeling, as if it was used in a lost episode of David Lynch's Twin Peaks.

2. The Waiters (website, CC BY) - Ticking clocks set the rhythm of this track, before it enters the Twilight Zone. Dark guitars emerge about halfway through.

3. Kevin MacLeod (website, CC BY) - Classical music for your next gala affair in an empty castle, with a ghostly guestlist.

4. Weirdomusic (website, CC BY-NC-SA) - Wet music for inside the lab of a mad scientist.

5. Vitus Von Degen (website, CC BY-NC-SA) - Baron Vitus Von Degen is a German composer who lives on a Grecian island. Inspired by John Carpenter and Goblin music, he produces soundtracks for movies still awaiting to be shot. The first 20 seconds of this track are a movie of their own.

6. Kreng (website, CC BY-NC-SA) - Dark electronic music meets jazz. A child whispers the command, "Go to sleep. Go to sleep. Go to sleep, little baby."

7. Black Math (website, CC BY) - Black Math is a trio from Chicago making lo-fi darkwave. Good music for a skeleton race on fixed gear bicycles through Pilsen.
