    Default TERROR -- a new orchestration piece for Call of Cthulhu

    This is a new theme I wrote for my tabletop Call of Cthulhu game. These themes aren't meant to be songs, they are more used to evoke an emotional response in my players. This theme is for a scene coming up where one of the characters suffering from Stenophobia is stuck in a very dark and cramped space...

    What's your thought process when trying to write a piece of music for terror? Lots of the dissonant intervals (b2, b3, b5)?

    I like the strings, they really make the piece for me.

    Hmm, depends on the piece. I can tell you that for something like this, the tail has to fit back into the head because it's going to be looped and may play for up to an hour depending on how long the scene or encounter runs.
    Musically speaking, anything that's not a unison, octave, perfect fourth or perfect fifth is a dissonance. When I'm writing something to build tension, I tend to go for deceptive cadences (not resolving to the I or tonic) and using suspensions. I also borrow neighbor tones but instead of using them as passing tones, I will hang onto them to create rubs.

    I like the strings, they really make the piece for me.
    Thanks! It was fun playing the strings with the pitch bend wheel lol.
