THE WHISPERER IN DARKNESS – 8 years ago already

It’s been 8+ years since THE WHISPERER IN DARKNESS was released at film festivals across the globe (DVD was in early 2012). It’s amazing how time flies. Recently, I’ve taken a step back to take in a big-picture view of my past, present and future projects. In so doing, I realized how much time has passed since I was on the set of Whisperer (sound recordist) and also composer of the score. In composing music, there really is never an ‘end’. There’s a point where you have to just let it go and let it take on a life of its own. The compositions can live long lives or be brutally torn to shreds, very quickly forgotten. I still receive nice comments about the score and I hope people still enjoy it. But like any other composition i’ve done, I’ve often been tempted to go back and reorchestrate THE CALL OF CTHULHU and more recently THE WHISPERER IN DARKNESS. This is considering the advances in DAW software and sound libraries – and ‘how good would it sound now?’ I have resisted the temptation to do so. I suppose if I had enough fans requesting, I may entertain the idea but I think I’d rather spend the time making something new. That said, there is a small project in the works I think HPLHS fans will enjoy – a familiar tune or two in a different incarnation… stay tuned for that.

In celebration of time passed and the wonderful experience that was being a part of the set crew and composer of the score, please enjoy a discount of the score at my bandcamp page. It is currently $10. if you retweet this or facebook it or share it through other social media means, be sure to link me or “@” me on twitter and receive a 15% discount code. I hope you enjoy and stay tuned for new works soon! – Troy Sterling Nies
