Horror Ambient Soundscapes


Quasi-musical in nature, these soundscapes and underscores are horrifying and fear-inducing. More special effect than music, a soundscape is both the natural acoustics of a particular environment, consisting of natural sounds such as animal sounds, weather and other natural elements, as well as environmental sounds created by humans, through musical composition, sound design, and so on.
