Spooky Halloween © is a scarey recording based on wild howls and lynx snarls. Additional wind and thunder are added to the mix to increase the Halloween ambience. Usually the microphones of Nature Sounds.ca are pointed in a peaceful direction, but from time to time the microphones do pick up the unexpected. These howls and snarls are one of those instances.
One of the audio techniques of conveying horror is to record an actor who is pretending to be scared. What does this imply about recordings of actors do not know they are acting as is the case with "Spooky Halloween"? Here, two species have a "close encounter" that inspires both individuals to sound more scarey than the opponent. A truly seasonal recording that portrays the Halloween essense.
