This recording is from the audio field report collection of Julius Vagner, Chief Investigator in the murder/suicide of Sally Downer and Johnathon Rickersly. Upon examination of the bodies a set of coordinates, a date and time was found written in black ink on Sally Downer’s back. This information is believed to have llead Julius to the location heard in the recording. Unfortunately, the information regarding the location was lost due to a clerical error and consequently, the location could not be determined after the bodies were released for cremation. This recording, found in his apartment at the time he was officially reported missing, is the key piece of evidence in the disappearance. It is currently believed that Julius went missing a day after this recording was made.
This article was also found, torn from what appears to be an old book, folded underneath a mug on Julius’ desk.

After the death of James, the Society burned Marcus Vane at the stake, but not before he claimed direction from unseen and powerful beings. ***
I was immediately inspired when I saw this weeks project and couldn’t focus on how, where and when to set this project, I ultimately decided on doing something in the ‘folley/sound adventure’ style rather than something musical, H.P Lovecraft was definitely on my mind.
I used a bunch of free samples from freesound.org and arranged, edited and applied a ton of reverb in Ableton Live.
