Hi! I was wondering if anybody could recommend any good background music to play while conducting a seance. I'm looking for music that will help set the spooky, supernatural, and otherworldly atmosphere. Any ideas or suggestions will be appreciated! Thanks!

I have a four disc set of music that will set the tone and also lay the aural foundations for a very lengthy seance....$15.00 postpaid and it's yours!
paypal or money order is fine.

I recommend the Chant series - Chants from Benedictine monks. Good stuff - Holy and creepy.

Well, you pays your money, you takes your Chants, I guess...

I also recommend Liszt. Listen to some of his works and see what will fit in, where.

I didn't even think of using chants! That's a great idea! Somewhere I have a CD with chants on it performed by a quartet of women who themselves "Anonymous 4". Thanks for the idea!

Ssucahyo,

Please take this as the compliment it is intended to be, but you have one creepy avatar. Very nice costuming and makeup.

Midnight Syndicate has been popular for this sort of thing. I've heard recently that while the music of Midnight Syndicate is not royalty free, they have been allowing their music to be used as background for performances PROVIDED they are contacted and made aware of the event where the music will be used. You might want to double-check this.

During the last seance I hosted, we played the greatest hits of John Phillip Souza. We tried contacting John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and James Monroe since they all died on July 4.

"Black Aria" by Danzig

You'll have to edit it and leave out two tracks that seem a bit harsher than the rest of the album. Off the top of my head I forget which two they are.

I have used the theme to the movie "The Fog" runs for 8 minutes. Also you can dowmload stuff in kaza using the search for sound effects or horror.

Midnight Syndicate is a good "industry standard" for a darker seance. And yes, they do allow performance rights with registered permission and the understanding that the user post signage identifying the artists' music as in use at the attraction.

Jay Scott Berry's original CD's (if you can find them) or his compilation CD are also all good for setting a slightly lighter but still mystical tone. I believe that JSB's music also comes with some form of performance rights as well, although I'm not sure of the details.

And for something that is surfacing from the underground scene, check out http://www.georgesabol.com . George's music was used in background scenes at both Kennywood Amusement Park and in Castle Blood this past year. He's a good friend and a great musician. I'm listening to some samples from his most recent CD as I type this.
