View Full Version : Music suggestions for a Haunt (PF)

2013-01-29, 08:21 AM
I'm building a haunt based on a dancing hall, and I'm trying to find the "perfect" music for it!

The music I'm looking for is played on a piano, should be rapid and preferably a little "crazed", like it's slowly slipping out of control, the tempo is too fast for the pianist to keep up...

Does anyone have any suggestions for music that might fit the bill?

Oh, and bonus internets if the music is not easily recognizable!

Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions :smallsmile:

that is a VERY specific request... I once used variosu themes from this album (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w102R-5xewI) *you can scroll to see the names of the songs and then just choose the specific ones). not many are piano, but some are, and most are good for a horror theme. I hope this helps.

Indeed it is, but why make it easy? That'd just take all the fun out of it!

Listening to Two steps from Hell as I type this, they have three albums on Spotify - the next three hours might be terrif... interesting! Thanks for the suggestion!

Ok, I don't have any such specific thing to propose, but I might suggest:
Masquerade waltz (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SpqwCUkysCs) (really fast with a crazy flare; this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wT9JWdJrcEQ) piano version is too gentle),
Sabre Dance (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gqg3l3r_DRI) (decidedly hectic, but might be a little bit too well known; there are piano versions (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vLRi7EZ9x8k) as well),
Flight of the Bumblebee (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8alxBofd_eQ) (on a piano to boot),
Revolutionary Etude (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZpuROwy_8mg) (doesn't seem as fast, but still insanly difficult).

I hope those help.

Two things immediately came to mind... I might have some more later.

The Three Fates (http://youtu.be/nDd4dBQH_Jc?t=1m41s) - Emerson, Lake, and Palmer. The part I'm talking about (Lachesis) starts at ~1m 40s and goes to ~4m 30s. The rest of the song may or may not work for you; the beginning isn't what I'd call chaotic or fast (or piano, for that matter), and the end has a bunch of percussion (as well as three piano tracks).

Trio for Horn, Violin, and Piano (http://youtu.be/8fo2qIKsSj8?t=7m7s) - Ligeti. It picks up ~7m with the second movement. The piano isn't necessarily the melody through most of it, but it's definitely a chaotic and fast piece, for all three instruments.

anything that needs synthesia to be played.

like this for example (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tds0qoxWVss)

here is a live version (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iankyw47vqY&feature=related) just to show how crazy it is... by browsing the dark side of youtube musicians you find scary stuff. then again, it might be too well known...

Hmm... The Castlevania series have a lot of stuff like that, but I couldn't tell you a specific song. Too, they're usually more about the pipe organs than the Piano... Though I do recall a few harpsichord pieces...
