Bumps in the Night

by Harold Wiebe

This album is a lighthearted collection of dark or night music you might listen to while walking in the woods at night. Try it! Sure there's lots of electronic instruments, but some guitars as well and definitely nothing you can dance to.

Album Notes
After Dark
Think of what might go on in the shadows after midnight, or what might be flying overhead in the night sky. Do you dare go there? This was one of my first forays into a techno sound back in 2006. I had very old equipment but I still love the sound of this piece. I re-worked it this year (2012) by adding electric guitar on the melody.

Debrah The Vampire
A cute little piece about a harmless vampire. I wanted a tentative, spooky beginning, so I used two oscillating chords set up with the notes close together as "clusters". Then came the bass line and I knew I had an acid jazz type piece.

Imagine walking through a graveyard late at night. You hear a faint crack behind you, you whip around, and right in your face is Helga, a necromancer from the ancient past whose spells and incantations you've interrupted. She's not happy that her undead army is not complete, so you might just have to be killed and resurrected again to appease her. I love the guitars in this music and the heavy groove at the beginning. Listen for Helga's howls at the end. Maybe she's recruited a few more younger sexy necromancers to help her with her quota...

Run Run
This music is just plain odd but I had great fun writing it! It was so enjoyable to make that bluesy bass line and to work out all those arpeggios in the middle. I don't think the music's spooky in any way but that cute girl better run before it's too late!

The Ice Wraith
Running by a wind chime one day, I thought of a series of notes that I could pan left and right and manipulate in other ways to create a mood and effect. I used that series as a base layer on which to build the rest of the piece. I wanted to call it "wraith" something, then I saw the name "Ice Wraith" in a video from the game Skyrim and I loved it right away.
