Jill Tracy,
I'm on the wrong side of the continent.
My mom says I'm reprehensible, I think I'm perfectly hensible.

Walt Anthony introduced me to her (Jill Tracy). I've been hooked since.
Her latest is different, she (and her band) orchestrated the music score for Nosferatu. Fantastic score!

Nosferatu? As in the remake of the film? The eerie music at the beginning with all the dead mummified bodies was excellent???... or something else....

I like Jill Tracy too. Found her on CDbaby.com (a wonderful site, by the way).

Best,
Neil

P.S. I use music of my own devising most of the time; when I don't, it's usually the Kronos Quartet.

Nosferatu, as in the original (albeit restored) film. She did this as part of the Nosferatu Project in San Francisco. The blurb for the CD is below.

Jill Tracy & The Malcontent Orchestra
Into the Land of Phantoms
2002

The long-awaited instrumental CD featuring selections from Jill Tracy and The Malcontent Orchestra’s acclaimed score to F.W. Murnau’s 1922 vampire classic Nosferatu. Recorded live in San Francisco.

Oh yeah, Samhain, Glen Danzig's band after the Misfits has some pretty spooky stuff too. I think they have 5 albums. The November Coming Fire album has a great exciting and scary instrumental Diablos 66. Rock On!

Phil Glass and the kronos quartet did a soundtrack for the original dracula movie (75 years after the fact or so...)

also, the "Music in the Key of X" from the X-files is a good one.

"The Shining" soundtrack...

I dunno

- "Floating Into the Night", an album by Julee Cruise. She was the lounge singer featured in Lynch's Twin Peaks. Very surreal disc.

- "Cold Comfort" and "Last Sigh of Nostalgia" songs by Carpathian Forest. Jazz pianos, ambient atmospheres and saxaphones meet black metal.

- "Where The Long Shadows Fall" and "The Starres are Marching Sadly Home" by Current 93.

And first, you might really pull them in with the cliche'd but effective Carmina Burana by Orff beginning. Overused in cinema...yes. Perfect for live beeczar, yes.

Danny Elfman, especially "Music for a Darkened Theater" Vols. 1 & 2 and the score to "Red Dragon".

Tom Waits has a few songs that lean toward the eerie side like "What's He Building In There" and "Little Drop of Poison"

Rob Zombie has the odd instrumental on his Cd's. On "Hellbilly Deluxe" there is a spoken word piece that is just plain disturbing titled "Call of the Zombie" and a great instrumental "Perversion 99"

Not very creepy, but a piece that I have incorporated from time to time is "Poppy's Voodoo" by Soul Dogs.

Or if you want something really different do a Google or i-tunes search for psycho-billy, gothabilly, and horror surf. Very interesting sub-genres. The Ghastly Ones, The HorrorPops, and The Nekromantixs are among my favorites. My style is actually very tongue in cheek. My character is a nod to the old, bad 50's and 60's sci-fi movies and late night creature feature hosts. This music is perfect for him.

Not to put a damper on all of this, but once you get out into the real world with your performances, and you are put into a public place where admission is charged, remember, there must be royalties paid on any of this music. This is even true of classical music, because the recordings and arrangements are copyrighted.

This is why Jay Scott Berry composed his own music.

You might check with Arthur Stead to see what kind of spooky stuff he has. He sells royalty free music.

Good point Bill, but. . . many venues already pay ASCAP and BMI royalties, so in many places you may be covered already. It is still our responsibility, though, to find out and make sure this base is covered.

Notwithstanding Bill Palmer's excellent advice above, if you're non-profit or working for fun, I think the "soundtrack" to the videogame "Quake" (1996) is top-notch; it was all composed by Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails.
Here's a snippet (not an entire track of course) to whet the apetite:
