This project centres on dark ambient soundscapes and noise to create ambient music that is felt as well as heard through the use of noise and sub bass drones.
Stephen Haunts from the UK uses manipulated field recordings as the basis for this project and lots of creative DSP processing to create music that can only be described as frightening. This project is influenced by many horror film sound tracks as well as artists like Lustmord, Steve Roach, Robert Rich and Andrew Liles.
Stephen first had the idea for this project after releasing the album Nightmares and Dreamscapes under his other act Creature. This album contained lots of eerie sounds, but never really fit with the rest of Creatures output, yet it was a fairly successful album being licensed numerous times for film and TV. Stephen wanted to carry on this style, but decided that it would work as a new project in its own right.
