Film composer BC Smith and bestselling author Richard Kadrey have joined forces to create A Demon In Fun City—an instrumental, cinematic ambient sonic adventure of soundscapes crafted with classical influences, noise elements, and jazz chaos. The music flows from tense atmospherics to melodic mysteries, at times unsettling and other times strangely beautiful. Mixed by sonic architect Bob DeMaa in Stereo, Binaural for headphones and Dolby Atmos, the album takes listeners on a journey through a wild, liminal twilight.

There’s no need for words. They paint the mood, they introduce suspense through the lens of curious eyes. But the deeper you go in this forest, the less you truly know about it. There’s an undertone of eeriness and danger. The unknown, but also a touch of sacredness. As humans, we are intelligent creatures, but still there are so much we don’t know. “Friends in the Wood” reminds you of that and keeps you humble.
