Carnival of Lost Souls (audio product)

MP3 File

Step this way... there is no turning back! Welcome ladies and gentlemen to the circus of the strange, the sideshow of the sinister and the theatre of the bizarre... Cast your eyes upon cruel oddities of nature and behold monstrous creatures from the depths of the abyss. Hear the dark wisdom of travelling soothsayers as they unveil things yet to come, and marvel with awe and dismay at unbelievable death-defying acts that teeter on the very brink of doom. Leave the mundane world behind, for those who visit this festival of phantasms are never the same again. As the Circus Diabolique rises from the shadows every one-hundred years, the true faces of its diabolical denizens are unmasked.
     Nox Arcana takes listeners inside an old-fashioned traveling circus, in the tradition of Bradbury’s "Something Wicked This Way Comes." Carnival of Lost Souls delivers 21 tracks of dark orchestrations and eerie melodies, haunting calliope, piano and pipe organ, ghostly choirs and sinister voices that echo from the shadows.

Harlequin’s Lament is a gorgeous gothic song, a blend of repetitious chords with a rich-sounding overlay of a grand piano and harmonized vocals in the background. This piece, while not necessarily “circus-like,” shows off the musicianship of Nox [...]

An excellent and very atmospheric soundtrack- it definitely has a dark, gothic, horror type feel to it. While some of the tracks are clearly very "carnival" oriented, others would work for any genre. The overall sound quality is excellent and [...]

The music is very good and seems to fit a "carnival horror" or an "elegant horror" setting. I only found a couple songs I could use to set the mood for a modern horror game. It's all creepy music with good sound quality. [...]

Nice atmospheric music. A lot of it is pretty good, and it'd set the feel. My only gripes are that there are a lot of shorter songs, which wouldn't always last for terribly long in terms of play time, so if you were running a campaign, you would have [...]

The Good: Some really nice tracks on this album with some very atmospheric music. The Bad: A few of the tracks kinda ran together on me, and not in the good, thematically connected way. Still, some of the better game atmosphere music I've heard. [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
