I'm looking for spooky "ambient" music other than Midnight Syndicate & Nox Arcana. It can have sound effects or not, I'm trying to find some tracks on YouTube but having trouble. Is there any other artists out there that make this type of music. I'm looking through amazon but not sure what to look for. This is the type of music I'd like to use on Halloween along with ghosts sound effects cause I'm making a Haunted Graveyard theme for my yard this year. :)

An unusual choice would be the theme song to Midsomer Murders, a British crime show. The first couple of seasons used a theramin for the theme song, and the tune is kind of Dark Shadows meets merry-go-round in an elevator. It could be ambient music, carnEvil music, ballroom dance music ... it's a great piece.

That's exactly the music (looped, through a digital photo frame with changing portraits) that I use for Halloween night at my witch's (candy) table. Wonderfully creepy and almost whimsical, but not overtly scary (as we have a lot of toddlers in our neighborhood currently.)

My fiancee is into New Age music, and a few years back I downloaded some music for her from e-music. One of the albums I downloaded was "The Float Zone" by Dino Pacifici. The first track, "The Currents Of Space", would be great as ambient background music for a haunt, IMHO. I couldn't find it on youtube, so I threw together a quick video so you could give it a listen.


If you're interested, this track is available (as an Mp3 download) on Amazon.

Again you guys helped me out so much and I appreciate it a bunch! I want to use these for the trick or treaters that are coming to my house on Halloween and wanted to make a mix CD of spooky ambient music.

I second Adrian von Ziegler. His work is fantastic. Also highly recommend any one of the Silent Hill game soundtracks. The composer, Akira Yamaoka, rules the world when it comes to creepy ambiance with an industrial edge.
