Unsettling, other-worldly sounds created by a reverb circuit with self-limiting feedback and rather extreme modulations on its delays (essentially, a "chorus" effect). It is invitingly interesting in some portions, creepy and downright scary in others. At around 1:51 you can hear some odd vocalizations mixed in to the input of the circuit to create some horror-like background effects, though in many places what sounds like screaming is actually just the sound of the circuit itself. The "circuit" is a virtual circuit I created in Analog Box 2, which created the sound output, but I also used Cool Edit Pro to mix together 4 different runs (one of which was long enough that I divided into two separate and distinct-sounding components). This is long, and I finally picked up the FLAC plugin for Cool Edit Pro so I could put this into FLAC format, but it's only reduced by maybe 60% from its original size. The waveform may look relatively uniform, and there are longish portions that sound mostly the same, but don't be fooled; it does have very different flavors over the course of time. So you should be able to find a portion that fits the need, and then discard the rest. Or just let it play as actual background music at your next Halloween event. :-)

    I'll choose a portion from 0 to 4:35:673 and discard the rest :) :)

    Thanks for the comment! My son (15) still creates interesting things in minecraft (when he's not playing video games ;-) ).
