Phantom by BLVCK CEILING

Don’t underestimate this song when it starts out; it might be tinkly piano and apprehension to begin with. Then that beat drops. This piece has become a personal favorite of mine when I heard it because it brought the villain to my long-time ongoing novel series to life in a fresh way that I hadn’t heard before. I can hear my character anew in this song; between the anxiety and delicate emotion of fear and the steady angry heavy beat of reckless choices and hate. Of the many ways music works in my head, bringing characters to life like this is maybe my favorite way.

Chicken Hop by Ryan Taubert

This was a finalist entry to a Hans Zimmer competition and it totally stole my imagination and heart. I can see horses galloping and hear pounding hooves and buzzing dragonflies and feel the warm western sun. The energy is just incredible!
