Abstract, creepy sounds I recorded after watching this video on Hans Zimmer's creation of the score to the original Dark Knight soundtrack:


(Fascinating video, give it a watch! :D)

- I found an old rusty razorblade (if it ain't rusty it ain't emo, amiright? amiright? Oh god that's in poor taste)
- and just started scraping it over the copper-wound strings of my Seagull S6 acoustic guitar in which I've installed an electronic pickup.
- Recorded into Reaper on my mid-2014 Macbook Pro, via direct in through a Zoom H4N in audio-interface mode.

Only processing: gentle EQ highpass at 95 hz. And some slight gain reduction.

These sounds remind me somehow of creepy film scores where the strings do that erratic pizzicato thing that sends tingles up your spine. Tell me what you come up with, I'd love to know!!
