Well, here is my contribution to the 4th Annual Spooky Creepy Halloween Music Contest.
I ask myself what would be the scariest thing to me and as it turns out it was the thought of loosing my mind. Diana Ross once played a character that suffered from Schizophrenia. I have never been able to forget this performance. I've always found monster movies laughable so I allowed my mind to imagine the various images and sounds that could creep into the mind of someone experiencing Schizophrenia.
I have titled this piece, "Schizophrenic Plunge."
As you listen try to picture/imagine the mind plunging from sanity to insanity. Each new sound is represents a new and terrifying horrific thought or image in the mind of the suffer. Try to imagine the small thread of sanity breaking as the mind decends into the abyss as the threads snap one by one. The last measures are the sound of the heart beats, which are the last things the suffer hears and then the cymbal crashes which is sanity exploding.
