Campfire Radio Theater – “Ravenous” released today for Audio Drama Sunday

Campfire Radio Theater – “Ravenous”

I am proud to announce the release of the latest episode of Campfire Radio Theater! It was a pleasure working on the “Ravenous” episode from the horror anthology series. On top of my usual scoring duties, John Ballentine was kind enough to trust me with his baby and allow me to co-produce the episode. One of the best parts of working on this story was enlisting the help of my wife Christina and our children to play small parts and contribute foley work. It was one of those strange moments in life where you find yourself dragging your wife across the floor (very carefully, I might add) while both of you try your hardest not to burst out in laughter at the absurdity of it all. Whatever it takes to get the job done, right? It’s all for the sake of entertaining the listeners! :D

I do hope you will take a moment to listen and write a review on iTunes afterwards. We would greatly appreciate it!

Campfire Radio Theater: “Woods Ferry,” “Rites of Autumn,” & “Abduction at Willow Woods”


Campfire Radio Theater: “Woods Ferry,” “Rites of Autumn,” & “Abduction at Willow Woods”

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted, so it’s time to catch up on Campfire Radio Theater! I have three episodes from the horror anthology series podcast to share today.

First up is “Woods Ferry. Fans of H.P. Lovecraft horror will find this story particularly entertaining!

“Weekend explorers on a quest for antique treasures stumble upon a lost town at the end of a long dirt road and soon uncover the unspeakable truth behind the decades past evacuation of Woods Ferry.”

You can listen to the “Woods Ferry” episode of Campfire Radio Theater below.

Next up is “Rites of Autumn.” It’s the latest Halloween offering from CRT and it’s quite fiendish to say the least!

“A young boy spends an autumn afternoon with his grandpa who passes on a few very unique and disturbing Halloween traditions.”

You can listen to the “Rites of Autumn” episode of Campfire Radio Theater below.

The latest offering is “Abduction at Willow Woods.” This psychological thriller is a slight departure (pun intended) and was recorded in binaural 3D sound!

“Two old friends unearth lost secrets from their youth when they revisit the wooded site of an otherworldly encounter.”

You can listen to the “Abduction at Willow Woods” episode of Campfire Radio Theater below.

I will be assembling the next volume of music collected from Campfire Radio Theater episodes soon, so be on the lookout for “The Sounds of Nightmares: Volume 2!”

That’s all for now!

OHR_CC_300pxKevin Hartnell – “CC BY-SA 4.0”

(a collection of music released under a creative commons license on FMA)

Over the years I have amassed a large number of tracks that didn’t seem to go anywhere once they were completed, or almost completed. Rather than leave them parked on a hard drive, I decided to turn them loose and submit them for possible inclusion on the Free Music Archive website. I assembled a collection of twenty-one tracks and sent in the submission. They were accepted five days ago and are available now for streaming or download.

For those unfamiliar with creative commons licensing, it’s a license you can append to your work that, depending upon which license you choose, can allow others to use your work without payment and even without credit if you choose. Why give it away for free? Well, in this case, the music was just sitting around without any particular application outside of providing me with a creative outlet. Some of it had been written years ago and didn’t go anywhere. With that in mind, why not turn it loose and see if it helps out others? So far there have been almost five-thousand downloads, so maybe they are already being put to use.

You can find the tracks here: http://freemusicarchive.org/music/Kevin_Hartnell/

If you are looking for music to use in audio dramas, podcasts, films, youtube videos, games, commercials, or anything else you can think of, the Free Music Archive may be an excellent resource for you, especially if you don’t have the budget to pay for music.

Support creativity, support the arts, support each other!
