Chrissie Sheppard has been a huge horror film fan for most of her life, on this new single of hers Childs Play, she can enjoy a moment of masterful creation in homage to her film preferences of those days of future past.
There is also a shift in dark ambient horror styled music going on these days, whilst thunder, rain and storms seem to be shifting to more new age nuanced tracks, children’s giggling and laughter and play sounds are far more scary, the corruption of innocence perhaps, but they are moving into the genre with a deft ease?
Here Chrissie has wonderfully crafted a single release that has all the hall marks of perhaps being one of the scariest pieces of music the flute performer has ever created, with footsteps, clocks, whispers, ethereal vocalisations, echoes, a ghostly child’s voice, Gregorian chants, and flute and keyboard effects, Chrissie has created her most unique piece yet with utter ease.
Childs Play by Chrissie Sheppard is a must have for Halloween, or for that moment when you desire to bathe your senses in a movie from the darker side of life, just remember, when listening to this single, make sure you are really alone in your house, and if you do hear a whispered child’s voice say into your ear “If they don’t let us play, they all go away. “RUN!
