This year I created a fun sci-fi homage for the Millikin University Percussion Concert. The premier will be Oct. 25 as part of the extremely popular annual Percussion Concert at the haunted Albert Taylor Theater. If you are in the Illinois area, you HAVE to check out this amazing and unforgettable Halloween event. Costumes and ghosts are encouraged!

I love the creepy, the weird, the freaky scariness of Halloween. I even did a stint as an indie special fx makeup artist one summer for indie horror flick in South Florida. Now mind you, I don't like gore much, although I've made up 40 zombies in one afternoon, freakishly created a shot where a boy was severed in half by crazy construction equipment, and have made some freakishly disturbing Halloween videos.
You can check out virelaan commissioned by the Millikin University Percussion Ensemble, conducted by the illustrious Brian Justison. This composition is dedicated to the ghost of Rail Girl, a real ghost who haunts the Albert Taylor Theater. Patrons try to dissuade the ghost's mischief by leaving her candy. So far only mischief has been caused by the ghost, who was rumored to have died at the theater as a young girl a century ago.
