So who’s writing some Halloween themed music?

Do people buy halloween music?

I’ve written a piece over the last couple of days and just wondering if it’s worth writing a few more

Will be good to hear about your experiences :)

Thanks for joining in, yeah I’ve been listening Elfman the last couple of days for some inspiration, he’s one of my favourite composers. Are you writing anything for Halloween? Is it a big selling time?

I have some stuff but not selling as good as other items. Maybe not enough advertising for those…

I’m branding mine as Halloween\Horror\Suspense…. That way, it pops up for Halloween, but it’s still useful for the other 11 months of the year…

Now.. to be REALLY honest, I just scored a film for a 48-Hour Zombie Film competition (while retaining ownership of my rights)... and I just added the cues on AJ… (we won 2nd place) :)

I do have one track that I did for fun, called “Spiderjuice”... trying to emulate Elfman’s sound from Beetlejuice…. I’m afraid it’s too quirky to be anything BUT Halloween… but as I always say, “If you don’t post it, you can’t sell it.”

I wanted to hop on that bandwagon but got in a bit too late! The envato collection for halloween already came out so I’m guessing those tracks will be the ones that will do really well as they are getting all the exposure. Also I’m still on holiday and don’t get back till the 12th so I can’t write much new till then! I’m putting my bets on christmas sales myself, preparing for that gravy train!!

Yeah that makes sense. That’s awesome and what a great selling point, good luck!

I will check out spider juice, I’ve just finished writing my Elfman inspired track, which also is no good for anything but Halloween I think, but that was kind of the aim anyway, people looking for Halloween music may only want music that is very clearly that.

Very true, good thing to remember while on AJ :)

Ah man I didn’t see that, I doubt I would have gotten on it anyway as I’m pretty new with only 9 sales! Sounds like a plan, maybe I’ll start Christmas music from now, should be fun to write :)

now I see that there is a Halloween collection, and as usual, my files are not there… maybe a name like “Frankenstein’s Waltz” or “Mysterious Church” doesn’t ring any kind of bells…
