Ballad Of Lost Hallow Act 3 Update


Awesome art by Vadvi. Check out her work at

Yeah, i’m done composing. It’s all there. I’m finishing up the week by making sheet music for the singers, after which i have some hired jobs to get to (a modern dance piece and a perfume thing). The singers will likely record end of jan, beginning of feb. We’re trying for end of January, but i’ve only spoken with the voice of our AI leader (since that is the most tricky to arrange). Other than brush up work, it’s made, it sounds great and i am enormously pleased. I guarantee this will be an hour long experience well worth the wait. I have stuffed all teh feelz in. All of them.

If the singers do record end of jan we are on time for a mid Feb release. By Valentine’s Day. Awww.

So there you go. Act is titled The Grand Cyberpunk Gala Of Gabriella Gadfly, and features the whole gang, Lauren, Psyche, Rhys, as well as newcomer Jessica Singer (our sweet, AI badass). Probably next week i will be sending the album with demo vocals to Sarah De Buck to begin cover design. So stay tuned for the cover. See you soon, sweetlings.

The Slenderman Musical Has Been Remixed And Is Out Now!

Just in time for Christmas! Nothing gets you in the spirit of Xmas like a romping tale of Slender shenanigans. Slenderman, ghosts, secret holy orders, sub-realities, monasteries on the outside of the world where everyone slowly descends into madness, some quality time with mother, and of course the infamous incident that takes place in Act 3 which makes this hands down the most divisive album of my career.

Of course, really, this is a story about isolation and connection, despite the cacophony of surreal and absurd horror tropes that march through this piece.

There has been a recent surge of interest in this tale, and despite all the hubbub about the Act 3 incident, the real issue i have is with its poor mixing. It’s driven me crazy all this time, and so now, in the holiday spirit, i have gone back and remixed it so it sounds far more listenable. There is a plot point near the end that i do realize is stupid and was a poor choice, and which i have changed. (I am prepared to defend why i changed this and why i didn’t change any of the other controversial bits.)

Act 1 is one of the best single acts i have ever made and act 3… is the literal definition of love it or hate it. Sounding a bit better than before, ladies and gentlemen, The Slenderman Musical! (Also, a purchase of this album gets you a Christmas Eve visit from SlenderSanta!)

Threnody by Matthew Broyles Is Coming. Are You Ready?

At the edge of the galaxy, shadows gather. The true dark, not merely the absence of light. At the vanguard of its advance, the youngest of a near-immortal race is flung into the fulcrum of cosmic history.

In order to solve the mystery of the shadows, he must first unravel the riddle of his species’ existence, a secret which has been well hidden for over 20,000 years.

What he finds will change everything. From the author of Rewired comes an adventure into deep space, both without and within.

Matthew Broyles, whose excellent first novel Rewired i’ve already waxed on about previously, has an indigogo campaign to help fund the publication of his new novel, Threnody. You should help. Also check out the awesome trailer (with music by yours truly). And be sure to check out his Indigogo campaign

Census of Known Floozies by Phoenix

So there’s this big headcanon going around about the Floozies from Raven’s Carnival. It goes as thus:

There was on original Floozy, Violet who came to the Carnival. Raven took a liking to her and gave her a job. Over time an unusual thing happened which surprised even Raven, but he went with it, as it was truly interesting. Violet started multiplying. There is currently twelve of her. They all took up jobs and in no small way, run certain day to day details of the Carnival that Raven is frankly glad to not have to manage. This goes so well that many of the working folks there become “Honorary Floozies”. The Twelve obviously are held in particularly high regard and are the go to people for keeping things civil and running, with Raven as the final say, of course, but as said, he’s pretty much fine with things. The floozy/Raven relationship is complicated and not something we need to go into here.

This then, is the list of all Carnival workers, that is, honorary floozies. Floozy is kind of synonymous with “carny”, and so yeah, the guy who works one of the game booths is totally delighted when Violet calls him a floozy. That’s how the culture works there.
