Yay, it’s almost time for everyone’s favourite pagan ritual day, that has been compressed into a mindless celebration of consuming & gluttony.
I tell you no lies, I always find it fun to make these scary bits.
SPOOKY BOOGIE rides the line between “Critters” (1986) and “Beetlejuice” (1988). So, what we’ve got here is something, nooot really that scary.
Horror movies have really got significantly better recently. 90’s and early 00’s was such a miserable time with endless serial criminals & self-awareness & stuff.
Now go watch “Suspiria” (2018) if you have the guts or “One Cut Of The Dead” (2017) if you want to laugh out loud.
They’ll be the ones to have your guts…
FRUITS AND BERRIES was the first tune I produced after my summer break. As is customary in such a point in composers life, I decided to go very easy.
So, nothing fancy here, just some happy-happy orchestral stuff, starring a slightly sneezy clarinet. Afterwards I had some watermelon. That’s why.
Omg, so funny! I’m laughing so hard, I’m literally crying!
The weirdest thing happened to me:
I worked on a tune in the evening. The time of the day was exceptional, yes, because I usually work in the morning or during the day, but that was not the point here.
Anyway, it was getting late, and I thought not to push forward and force the production for completion. A good nights sleep might even give me a new perspective of the job. Well rested ears are better ears. So I slept, woke up, fell out of bed, dragged a comb across my head, got my two cups of coffee and continued working with the tune.
You can only imagine my surprise, when I found out that the tune was finished during the night! And I swear, I did not raise my finger while sleeping. I may have rolled over a couple of times and maybe snored, but I repeat, I did not work!
Not Balkanese edible nor a ski mask: CUBLAVA.
We got these nice musical traditions here in Kongano, which all take place during the fall.
The second one we’ll get to later this month, while the third one is up at the beginning of december. Can you guess what I might be referring to?
This first seasonal piece of music is not as, should I say, well-established as the the ones I mentioned before. What I’m talking about is Autumn Pop*.

How this necessity of autumnal pop music came to be, I can’t remember. I think I just found out after a few years of producing such tunes, that I guess this is a thing now.
So, without further ado, Kongano’s super-official autumn pop of 2020: STOP ASKING.
It’s a bit more electronic than usual, but hey, it’s also still gloomy, melancholic & sad; All the good jazz!
