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!

Kevin Hartnell-“CC BY-SA 4.0” (creative commons music) on FMA!

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!

“Kraken Mare: The Score”

Kraken Mare ArtworkKraken Mare: The Score

On November 10th, Matthew McLean from YAP Audio Production and the Audio Drama Production Podcast contacted me needing someone to score his latest audio drama. I gladly accepted the offer and began working on music for his excellent science fiction/horror story “Kraken Mare.”

What is “Kraken Mare” about? “Nine years ago the Wells-Dyson satellite picked up images of what appears to be some sort of wreckage on the floor of Titan’s biggest hydrocarbon ocean – Kraken Mare. The discovery prompted eccentric billionaire Jennifer Barrie to fast-track an expedition to the mysterious moon of Saturn. The three British astronauts who have just arrived in Titan’s orbit have only one job – find out what’s lying under Kraken Mare. And potentially answer one of humanity’s biggest questions. Are we alone in the universe?”

When I began working on scoring the story, the first thing that struck me was the fantastic soundscapes Matthew had created. On top of that, quality acting and writing truly inspired me! It was a pleasure to create music to help illuminate the production. I wrapped up scoring and sent over my mix to Matthew on December 17th. The following day YAP Audio Production released “Kraken Mare” to the public which has already received quite a few positive reviews!

Today I Audio Drama Production Podcast Logohave released the score through Overlook Hotel Records as a free download. What I am asking in return is, if you like the music (or the audio drama or any of the other great works YAP have put out), please consider making a donation to their Patreon account to support their works. They are lovely people that have been building a growing and supportive community of modern audio drama producers. They also release a regular podcast (the Audio Drama Production Podcast) that helps to educate people on how to make their very own audio dramas. Have a listen to the story below and let us know what you think. You can find quite a few of us hanging out on the ADPP Facebook group, so drop by and say hello! Maybe you will find yourself making your very own audio drama, too! Thanks for listening!
