I'm about to start a unit on Gothic literature with my high school students, and I've been searching everywhere for background music. I'm getting Midnight Syndicate and Nox Arcana to play during group work, but I need something more low key for during lecture/reading. We're reading "A Rose for Emily" on Monday, and I really wanted some subtle ambient sounds - light rain, wind, rustling leaves, crickets... stuff like that. Because we'll be reading the story aloud, it can't be too overwhelming or feature any sudden, out-of-place sounds.
In my head, it sounds like the beginning part of Pirates of the Caribbean at Disneyland. Has anyone come across something like this?
