It Was a Dark and Stormy Night

By Leland Thomas Faegre


'It Was a Dark and Stormy Night'

Description: Stripped of its production, its category or genre would have to be 'blues;' but even without the arrangement, I thought the composition was eerie and applicable to themes of fright and horror. Recorded at 63 bpm, the arrangement seeks to capture Frankenstein's gait or walking speed, while the bass guitar primarily gives it heft and force. A powerful cello arrangement with sundry trombones and brass complete the ambience of paranoia.

Story Behind the Music: Written on piano, my original analog recording included excerpts of the original 'War of the Worlds' radio broadcast which has been the working title for the track for about twenty-five years. Written a decade prior to the 'Roland architecture period' and without any specific external event that I can recall, the composition nonetheless arouses an ambience of fear, and I was only too happy to complete the production.

What is a LandscapeHD film?
LandscapeHD films combine the worlds greatest classical and instrumental music with breathtaking HD imagery from around the world
Which comes first the music or the pictures?
LandscapeHD is first and foremost a music television network. We start with the music and then create a production that is sympathetic to it.


Although only available in standard definition, LandscapeHD will be available as part of this programming to promote its music video download store and build a new audience amongst cable companies - many of whom will never before have been able to see Landscape and its format.

Nick Austin, Chairman of LandscapeHD says "Art Channel is a really good television concept that will also be very good for Landscape. Now viewers can see our HD music clips before they buy them in HD or the AppleTV format. It will give people a very good idea of what the LandscapeHD channel will be doing next year and forms part of our co-operative marketing venture to build awareness of the LandscapeHD and Art Channel brands"

In addition, Art Channel is also available by the Neuf network in France.  From Wednesday 6th February 2008, Art Channel will also be available 24 hours a day on this network - channel 104.  French speaking viewers see here whilst English speaking viewers, can read more here.

Professional Review

"The opening of this piece had surprise... and I found that once you got into a straight groove, it did resemble 'Be Careful with That Axe, Eugene' by Pink Floyd, and I liked the feel quite a lot.  I loved the 'I Am the Walrus/Coppola's Dracula' strings that entered at 2:11.  This piece was solid and well conceived."

---Taxi, September 16, 2005

"The title sets the tone and the arrangement brings it home...sounds like you're developing a catalog all by yourself..."
