Harrowing synthesizer lines have long been synonymous with the guts and gore of the cinema’s scariest corners, so here’s a list of the genre’s most essential scores…Both because of this functional consideration and the unlimited possibilities that the instruments offered, synth compositions became a go-to source for striking fear in the hearts of motion picture audiences over the course of 70s and 80s, and sparked a fated relationship between electronic music and genre films that lasts even to this day.
If you’d like to go even deeper then Horrorpedia has a frightfully formidable list too.
But in the meantime, here’s a couple of my own favorites to get your October started right:
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
