Hello again inmates!

Well, here it is! As I mentioned before, I’m posting something a little more “musical” and as unsurprising as it may be, it’s a Halloween special of the Harlequins writing music! It’s the time for trick-or-treating, costume parties and generally being freaky. Music can fit all of these things, music can transform fear into terror and unease into panic. Music and Halloween go hand in hand.

I listen to a great many bands, both obscure and popular. As you may know, I try to keep it as varied as i can. With Halloween upon us, I felt that it would be quite apt to post the bands and songs I write with that fit well with Halloween. Crunching metal epics, fancy costumes and spooky electronic jingles can all be found here. I believe I’ve posted a few of these bands before, but I shall try to keep the songs new. You may know some of these bands, you may not know some of them, however I guarantee you won’t be disappointed in these choices. Unless you’re easily freaked out I suppose.

Now, let us delve into the musical minds of freakish artists the world over!

So there we have it for another edition! I included a few more songs than usual, with this being a special occasion and all. Here’s hoping that you’ve enjoyed this edition of the Harlequins writing music, I hope that you check out these artists. And once again, I hope that you all have a very happy Halloween! Now, I’m going to go and cut a pumpkin, or something like that. Haha!

Until next time, have a very crazy day inmates!

Greetings inmates!

Raise your hand if you like to write or type in silence?

I’m willing to bet that the majority of people play some music while they do, whether it’s to help them think or to just to keep the silence away. Some people listen to their favourite artists, whether it be a metal band, a rapper or some kind of DJ. Personally, i always listen to music while writing. It helps me think and I can say for certain that quite a lot of my ideas have been inspired by various songs. I’m going to post some of the songs here that i like to listen to while i come up with my stories, poems and characters. Some of these will be probably unsurprising: esoteric, ghostly electronic numbers. Others… not so much. Some may almost seem like they would hinder one’s thought process.

Allow me to introduce some of the Oldschool Harlequins writing music…
