Exquisite Corpse from Nightmares
Shared nightmares were a major theme of B.A. Saint-Feline's journey in "The Providence Prophecies," and participants emailed and called in their own nightmares (both real and imagined) to B.A. continuously as the nearly five-month story unfolded. We used a service called JConnect to manage the phone calls -- part of that service includes voice mails emailed to you as MP3s. Hundreds and hundreds of MP3, each more frightening and disturbing than the last.
GMD Studios Lead Developer Jim Rhoades took on the task of starting to craft all that audio into an exquisite corpse, a collaborative narrative of "The Providence Prophecies" (at least a part of it) as told through the dream calls. A lot of cataloging and editing later, he had reduced it to a chilling 12 minutes plus extended audio collage of atmospheric crafting courtesy of the wonderfuly deconstructed remixes of John Vanderslice's in "MGM Endings" (a free download from John's site) -- catch him on tour now (I will on Monday.)
Pieces of this are going to end up in other places (including the new Eldritch Errors site redesign), but the "extended remix" is just for fans: consider it the first installment of the Eldritch Errors Soundtrack (and not the only installment you'll get before the interlude is over.)
