Dark Music for a Dark Book

Film composer Will Musser (Game of Thrones, American Horror Story: Apocalypse, Gretel & Hansel) wrote “Shadow,” a musical piece inspired by my dark fantasy novel The Mouth of the Dark. In my novels, Shadow is a sinister realm that lies adjacent to our world, but hidden from it except for a select few. Shadow’s a region of dangers physical, mental, and spiritual, and if you find it – and are lucky enough to escape with your life – you’ll be changed forever . . . and not in a good way.

“Shadow” is eerie and evocative, and I love the sound effects and the way the piece builds up to an off-kilter rhythm then returns to where it began. It's like someone entering Shadow, exploring, finding some horrible things they didn't expect and escaping with (hopefully) some scrap of sanity intact. One of the things I love most about having a career in the arts is when another artist reacts to/interprets something I did to create their own vision, and that’s exactly what Will has done so wonderfully in “Shadow.” “Shadow” is Will’s composition, and he retains all rights to it.
