Over a year in the works, the music and sound design of this new disc promises to transport listeners back to the world of shadowy castles, mysterious villages, and fog-drenched countrysides overrun by creatures of the night.

Like his exquisite collection of antique vernacular photographs of Halloweens past.

Here is a glimpse of how the old, weird America celebrated All-Hallows Eve.
"Over the last few weeks, our office has definitely been feeling the holiday spirit. And not just because we’ve been preparing for the holidays since July, but because we’ve been taking part in a museum-wide gingerbread house-making contest.
