WITHIN THE DARKNESS (2013): Sound Design for a Haunted House

In 2013, I finished my 3rd contemporary feature film (17th film overall, counting all the silent films), WITHIN THE DARKNESS.  My main contribution to the film was the score, for which I was given a generous amount of freedom in terms of the style and quantity.  I will post some tidbits on the score in the future.  I also designed some sound effects and vocal processing. Here's a clip where I explain how I created the unsettling sound of the haunted house using multiple tracks of a Chinese instrument called an Erhu and some effects processing in Pro Tools. Are you scared yet?
