Me and Dracula
Me and Dracula? I guess I've always had a fascination for the supernatural and I've enjoyed since childhood the Hammer Films that featured Christopher Lee (to my mind the finest movie Dracula ever). It was an added bonus to find that Dracula, erm, lived near to my home!
I built this website using the tools at SiteSell - well worth a look if you'd like to build your own business website.
Listen to 'Me
and Dracula' (music by Alan
So, who am I?
My name is Alan Moore and I'm a UK based media composer. I live across the Yorkshire Moors from Whitby, hence the website!
The drive across the Moors to Whitby has always held a fascination for me. It always reminds me of Conan Doyle's 'Hound of the Baskervilles' (I know, the novel was set in Dartmoor!). Like Dartmoor, I find the Yorkshire Moors National Park has that same bleakness PLUS beautiful country villages and some great pubs (which, you'll be pleased to know, I've researched thoroughly!).
The North Yorkshire Moors (and the nearby Yorkshire Wolds) form a scenic background to the coastline, with heather moors, rolling hills, picturesque country towns and historic houses. There is a wealth of scenic variety: open moorland and secluded dales which extend all the way to the rugged coast. A unique steam train links all this together. In short, a fantastic place for a holiday.
It's a real privilege living here!
The music excerpts, heard throughout the website, are my own compositions. I hope you've enjoyed this added dimension to the site. I've tried to choose music that complements each page and enhances the atmosphere of that page's subject. Please let me know if you think it works (or even if you think it doesn't!).
I'm in the process of composing a 'Dracula Suite' which I'll eventually make available from 'Dracula-in-Whitby.com. If you have any thoughts or suggestions about this, again, please get in touch.
Let me know what kind of music you like, or dislike. What is your favourite Dracula film soundtrack?
Who is your favourite horror film composer? One of my favourites is James Bernard who scored many of the old Hammer Films. He's an absolute genius (his music scares the hell out of me!). I'll be reviewing several Dracula soundtrack albums in the near-future.
Well, I hope this has given you a little information about why
I created Dracula-in-Whitby. If you want to hear more of my music,
I'd be delighted if you'd visit my media
music website, where you can listen to (and watch) the music
that I've scored for film, TV and the web.
Finally, if you'd like music creating for your project (website, film or video project), let's chat about it. You can reach me from either website.
"Now God be thanked that all has not been in vain! See! the snow is not more stainless than her forehead! The curse has passed away!"
