The Terrifying Sounds of 2020: The Top 10 Best Horror Soundtracks of the Year

Xanthe Pajarillo writes....It has been a tumultuous year for the music industry, but there was never a loss of resiliency or creativity. This year, the Lovecraft Country soundtrack made history by becoming the first-ever series scored by an online orchestra, with players from Metropolitan Opera, New York Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony and the Toronto Symphony recording solo in their respective areas. Composers worldwide followed suit, developing new ways to simulate live orchestras with clever engineering and mixing. As of late, there has been discussion about creating VR technology where musicians can play at the same time.

As we reflect on the wonderful horror films released in the past months, let us remember how their music deserves just as much recognition. Horror composers generated tracks that ranged from the profoundly powerful to the fun escapism we as listeners needed.

Included in the best in horror music for 2020 is Vivarium - Composer: Kristian Eidnes Andersen

For a film about being trapped in a labyrinth, listeners would be happy to be lost in this cacophony of sounds. Kristian Eidnes Andersen unites his sound design history with music to texturize its story. It drags you through playful, menacing, and somber moods within thirty minutes, making it repeat-friendly. Director Lorcan Finnegan stated: "There is an element of horror in the everyday […], taking something that's normal and looking at it in a different light until it becomes very strange." Listen on days you find yourself trying to make sense of isolation.

Favorite Tracks: Vivarium, Lost, Nest, Tom Died, Garden and the Sun, Gemma Dies
