I'm going to preface this by saying that I don't have strong beliefs in the supernatural but that it always been at least really interesting for me to learn about. Kind of like how a person can take to reading science fiction books without seriously believing that in the near distant future the star wars will take place. I'm only making this point to explicate that I'm not some looney toon reading too much into a handful of coincidences.
I'm a music producer. Have been for a while. Started doing it professionally but still dump more effort into my own personal projects. I've had a tremendous amount of luck with gaining a small amount of notoriety over the years through the advent of the internet. You might have heard of me, but chances are higher that you probably haven't.
So a few years ago, I accidentally put a curse on one of my albums. I put a lot of work into it and thought it ended up sounding great (which is a rarity for me because I am usually pretty critical of my own work) but while I was making it, got the bright idea to tell people that it was cursed.
At the time I was thinking of it as a joke. I had always found it amusing to receive those stupid chain letter esque emails about "the ghost girl that will kill you and eat your soul if you read this and don't send it to 50 people in your contacts list" so when I released it, I littered the descriptions and info with bits of text along those lines, telling people that the album was cursed and would curse you forever if you listened to it all the way through without skipping any tracks. The theme for it was pretty macabre and it just made sense at the time I guess. It was just dumb stupid fun.
Pretty soon, I started getting messages from my fans about all the "weird things" that had happened to them after listening to the album. Some of it was kind of interesting but a lot of it was pretty mundane. I started thinking it was really cute that my fans were playing along with my bullshit, but didn't really give it much thought beyond that.
Abruptly, my agent booked a performance for me and I decided to use the album as the main fill for the set list. Spent a few hours looking through my catalogues to find some other songs I thought would fit with it and then sat and listened to it all the way through just to get a feel for how the set would go. No big deal, whatever.
The following day while driving, I was almost involved in a head on collision. The guy made a wrong turn down a one way street and floored it heading straight for my car. If i hadn't peeled into the next lane at the time that I did, the guy would have probably killed me because he just kept driving the wrong way down the street going almost 50 miles an hour. I definitely thought it was a really strange occurrence but it never crossed my mind that it might have been related to having listened to the album the night before until later that evening when I started working on the set again. I was sitting there staring at my playlist with the album loaded up for a good 10 minutes before I finally just laughed about how stupid I was acting and listened to it again.
The next morning, I couldn't find my cat anywhere in my apartment and soon discovered from one of my neighbors that he was dead in the back alleyway. His head had been completely crushed by what I'm guessing was a passing car and all that was left was a decapitated cat corpse next to a red stain on the pavement.
Admittedly, I was starting to get a little rattled. I'd had that cat for like 11 years and he had never expressed any interest at all in going outside. I couldn't even figure out how he had accomplished it because I don't sleep with my windows open or door unlocked. My thoughts danced back to the album.
"Okay," I thought. "This is getting stupid and youre acting narcissistic. It's just a bunch of dumb songs you made on your computer, there's no fucking way these instances are related."
I decided I had to put it to rest once and for all and listened to the album one final time just to prove to myself that nothing was going on.
And of course, the next day I got a call from my mom telling me that my Grandfather had very suddenly contracted a terminal illness that we had to fly out to see him through. The doctors had told her that the chances of him making it through the week were slim to none. Weirdest thing about it was that before that point he had been the perfect picture of health for someone his age and no one could even diagnose what was actually wrong with him. I took a plane out to his home and spent the next couple of days sitting by his bedside while he stared at the ceiling muttering the words "I'm not afraid..." to himself repeatedly for hours.
I haven't listened to the album since then. Ended up cancelling the performance citing grief. Have tried my best just to not think about any of it.
Not long after all this, another musician friend of mine tried to convince me that it was all in my head while we were hanging out at his place. Despite my outcries he began listening to the album while we were sitting in his living room. I politely excused myself and went to his back porch to avoid hearing it. After however longs worth of smoking cigarettes and fucking around on my phone, I suddenly heard him coughing and retching very loudly from outside of his open bathroom window. I went up to ask him about it and all he said was that he wasn't going to finish listening. I took a look in his bathroom and saw that was filled with vomit mixed with blood. He still maintains his stance that the album isn't cursed but also refuses to try and listen to it again.
And so I'm here, now. Anybody on /x/ have any experiences with something similar to this? Am I fucked for the rest of my life? Any advice on how to lift this self imposed curse? Am I just being a superstitious idiot? All comments are welcome. Thanks for reading!
would have just posted it if this were the case but I understand why you would think that
also doesn't do me a lot of good to advertise for an album I made more than two years ago (not trying to be a dick, sorry if I'm coming off like that!)
i have a writing project going on at the moment and for the last few parts i've been half-hardheartedly cursing them & sprinkling references to a specific goetia demon throughout. hope this doesn't bite me in the ass.
About 3 months ago I downloaded an album at the suggestion of a /mu/ thread. At the time, I really liked it, so I bought the cassette because it said it had a different track listing compared to the digital version. Turned out to have really, really bad vibes. The whole album has about 50 songs of various short lengths and they get more bizarre and disjointed as it goes on. There are a LOT of samples of audio, and I recognize Art Bell's voice several times. One of the final tracks is a recording of an elderly woman with a creepy speech impediment who I believe is dead now. Although I stopped listening to it after a week (took it off my Ipod, deleted it from my computer, left the cassette in a grocery store bathroom 2 hours from where I live) I felt a big disruption in my day-to-day life for the next couple months, and I still do occasionally. Sometimes I see the album recommended on /mu/ and I wonder if it's a deliberate attempt by someone (probably the artist) to exert influence over a large number of psychically-sensitive people.
I don't want to encourage anyone to look it up but I'll just say it has an image of a wizard with rays of various colors emanating from him on the cover. Its no longer on my hard drive so i cannot link to it, but to my knowledge its still on the website Bandcamp and has not been taken down.
Words are powerful. Get all copies of the album you can and destroy (fire is best). Or find a specialist who can lift a curse for you....or do both. You are doing the right thing by telling the story....
I'm 100% sure he's talking about this: https://djrozwell.bandcamp.com/album/none-of-this-is-real
well, just skimming over them i found:
some kind of high-pitched native american chant or something
"it walked in the room, it looked at me"
pretty sinister tones overall
"when the tape is over, please destroy it"
more sinister tones
art bell talking about a demonic spectral dog
jesus fucking christ, sounds like a robot woman giving a monologue with some kind of ghost wailing in the background
not trying to build this up as any kind of creepypasta or anything, just pointing it out
theres this song by skip james
It's a song about a man discovering that his wife has been possessed. Reportedly, people made claims that they would see a mysterious figure that they supposed to be satan in any reflective surfaces around them while listening to it.
I love hearing about this kind of stuff. I remember watching a program awhile ago that was about an apartment building that kept discovering its tenants dead in their living spaces with the autopsy revealing that all of their internal organs had been basically shredded to paste. They went into the building trying to find out what it could be and expecting it to be some sort of undiscovered fatal mold but eventually pinpointed the source to be coming from an industrial strength air conditioning unit in the cellar with an off kilter fan that was emitting a low level frequency that was killing the buildings residents over time. I can't seem to find anything about it online, though. is there anyone that knows what it is I'm referring to with more information about it or things like it?
Fake and gay. You think you are powerful or something OP? No. You are just a fucking sick amateur musician trying to take on fame, riding on paranormal phenomenon where every single suggestive faggots believes.
>baww muh curse
Fuck off. Thank you.
noise album comprised of the screaming of mental patients and people locked away in prison camps
>Stalaggh have found a small cult-like fan base due to the fact that they actually have mental patients do the vocals for their albums. One particular “guest” vocalist was locked away for brutally stabbing his own mother over 30 times to death at the age of 16. One of the “musicians” was almost murdered by another mental patient who reportedly had uncontrollable homicidal urges during the recording process. According to the band, the sounds of the attempted murder were caught on tape.
haven't listened to it all the way through myself. not planning on it
this is kind of interesting
It's a global survey aiming to discover which types of sounds are found to be more unpleasant than others and pinpoint specifically why.
>>15274752 That's from a show called Dark Secrets, I saw it recently. I hate to burst your bubble though man but all the stories are fiction. It's on Netflix if any anons out there are interested. episode 7 is what this guy is referring to
oh shit, youre right! thanks for reminding me! yea, I kind of got the feeling from it that most of the stories were bogus just from the formatting but that one in particular stuck out to me as being at least a tad more believable than the rest (isnt the first episode about a house that eats people or something?)
Is there any point to even watching the telly nowadays? Everything good gets uploaded to the Internet nigh instantly anyway, I don't understand why TV channels don't just migrate to Internet streams.
>The authorities do not know exactly how many people have been killed warbling “My Way” in karaoke bars over the years in the Philippines, or how many fatal fights it has fueled. But the news media have recorded at least half a dozen victims in the past decade and includes them in a subcategory of crime dubbed the “My Way Killings.”
>mfw it has an "expansion pack" too
The whole guy's page gives me the creeps in a kind of low-level background way. Look at the release dates of each of his albums, he's been doing at least one album a month since December last year.
Is the anon who felt cursed by it still in here? Care to shed some light on what exactly has happened as a result of playing it?
This was a popular aria from The Bohemian Girl, an opera written in 1843. There was a legend that whistling the melody anywhere indoors would bring severe bad luck.
All right then I'll just say it again.
I have not posted a link anywhere in this thread to the album I referenced in my original post. This is mostly out of fear that someone will listen to it and fall prey to some bit of sad misfortune, as what happened to me.
I have also made been posting under an alias to negate the off chance that someone would curiously attempt to find a copy of it somewhere for the same reason.
I definitely understand the accusations of suspicion that I am merely trying to drum up attention to myself and my music, but the fact of the matter is that it simply isn't true.
La forza del destino
from the wiki:
On 4 March 1960 at the Metropolitan Opera, in a performance of La Forza del Destino with Renata Tebaldi and tenor Richard Tucker, the American baritone Leonard Warren was about to launch into the vigorous cabaletta to Don Carlo's Act 3 aria, which begins "Morir, tremenda cosa" ("to die, a momentous thing"). While Rudolf Bing reports that Warren simply went silent and fell face-forward to the floor, others state that he started coughing and gasping, and that he cried out "Help me, help me!" before falling to the floor, remaining motionless. A few minutes later he was pronounced dead of a massive cerebral hemorrhage, and the rest of the performance was canceled. Warren was only 48.
Harry Nilsson supposedly had a curse following him around. In 1971, he covered a song called "Without you" which had been originally written by a band called "Badfinger". Both writers of the original song ended up committing suicide. Mamma Cass died of heart failure and Keith Moon of a prescription drug overdose both while staying in Nilssons apartment while he was away on tour, but about 5 years apart. Even John Lennon, who reached out to Nilsson for companionship during his separation from Yoko Ono, was infamously and tragically murdered by an insane fan. While he was still with The Beatles, Lennon was innocently asked how he expected to die. His answer was "I'll probably be popped off by some loony."
>According to a legend embroidered upon by Madame Blavatsky, Tartini was inspired to write the sonata by a dream in which the Devil appeared at the foot of his bed playing the violin
this fucking shit...
guy that wrote the song came up with the lyrics while his legs were being crushed under a fallen horse to keep his mind off of the incredible pain he was experiencing
I think the killing happens because the last part of "My Way" (the part where the lyrics is "I did it my way") becomes a competition--like a singing contest-- among "drunk" people singing it. Since they are drunk, they would easily be pissed and when one of them provokes the other, that's where shit happens. I am a Filipino and believe me when I tell you that I get sick and tired of hearing incidents like this on the media.
>Am I just being a superstitious idiot?
No. You dun goofed.
>Any advice on how to lift this self imposed curse?
Yup! Create the cure yourself. Wanna know why? Cause you made the curse.
The brains of creators, especially creators who are musicians that have been at it for awhile and deal directly with that which influences emotions, mental states, and reality, have way more starting power than most when it comes to using consciousness in a pointed way.
Heard of the law of attraction? It's real. If you think it, you can bring it. And, moreso, if you get OTHERS to think the same exact shit and believe in it, that feeds directly into the power of the thought echoed into the command prompt of reality. One mind, no matter how strong, doesn't work as powerfully as one hundred minds.
So, yes, you made the curse and, because your fans began giving into it with their mental energy, it became a legitimate thing. Then you, its own originator, began giving into it, and it got really rocking.
So, how do you undo it? Same way you made it--create a charm to lift the curse. My suggestion would be listening to the whole album the whole way through with the track listing reversed. If the way into the dark was track one to close, then follow the steps back out into the light.
A charm? That's an excellent idea! Thank you!
Hmm... well, since you asked politely... sure. I'll remove all the identifying information from the mp3s, upload it to mediafire, and then post the link when I'm finished.

pffft man this fucking sucks op
Especially the Billie Holiday remix at the end, where you apparently didn't even realize there either was a fucked up offset on the kick drum or a clipping issue, unless you deliberately gave it an annoyingly sharp attack at the beginning. That, and the drums on every track are stiff and the entire thing reeks of "I just discovered FL Studio and want to make something 2spooky".
I guess this was an interesting exercise in attempted viral marketing, but let's just say you should be glad you left the identification off. Now go look up proper mixing and come back with some interesting song structures, not just fucking loops with old timey radio/movie dialogue samples over top.
I can't tell if OP did it on purpose or not, he seems to be acting a little strange considering that he posted the album and then deleted it immediately afterwards, but he did leave a way to identify him in the files.
If you view the album artwork, it brings up a corrupted image, that once re exported to a PNG. reveals pic related. Just for fun, I uploaded the image to imgur and did a search by image on google which brought up this.
oh, hey i think i remember this guy, actually. he did something kind of similar to this for the album he released right before this one. posted it stating that it had a secret disc with more songs at a hidden address and then posted clues on how to find it. iirc the hidden disc had songs that sounded better than the one he was promoting it with. interesting to see hes still around
OP's got some pipes on him
DEFINITELY FUCK THIS SHIT
You niggers wanna be cursed/have your brains imploded by science, go right the fuck ahead. The human race must be culled anyway. Good luck bitches!
I shit you not, he died one year after releasing this record.
>Devil Got My Woman is an album by American blues singer Skip James, released in 1968. It was his last record before his death in 1969.
looks like op did the music for this thing
I remember watching this when it came out. theres a link to the soundtrack in the description
it sounds a lot more laid back and chill compared to this album he says is cursed. maybe it could serve as the 'charm' everyones looking for?
OKAY YOU ASKED FOR IT MOTHERFUCKERS BIG POST COMING THROUGH
Listened to the entire album as instructed, including the expansion pack, and closed my eyes. After about 30 minutes (just guessing) I started to have what I can only assume was my first lucid dream, although I didn't know it at the time. I only realized it once I started paying closer attention to one of the songs. It had been playing for well over 10 minutes, which is far longer than any track on the album. It had a looping sample of Art Bell talking, except every few minutes the words would change, certain words would be swapped out for new ones...nothing out of the ordinary, his voice is all over the album, right? Eventually I figured out I was dreaming, and decided to wake up.
At that point I saw I'd already listened to the entire thing and had been asleep for about six hours. It was light outside. After eating breakfast I decided to go back and listen to that one really long song, since I really liked it.
Here's where it gets weird. Whatever I heard wasn't anywhere on either album. It had a strange piano melody with a bass (?) part that was slightly out of tune with it, but not in a discordant or unpleasant way. The Art Bell voice also sounded very very close in the mix, as if he was right up next to the microphone. Nothing like that is anywhere to be found.
I'm not scared right now or anything, just very, very interested. Should I give it another go tonight, guys?
I listened to this song all the time when I was younger, I don't feel any more haunted than other people.
Also, Skip James did the first recording of that song when he was twenty, the record you're talking about was when he was rediscovered in his 70's and then they asked him to play some of his songs for a remastered album.
I mean, I love spoopy stories too, but at least be accurate.
op didn't post the album until someone nicely asked him, which wasn't until after like a hundred posts, he deleted the post with the download link almost immediately after he had made it, and the only identifying piece of information he left in the files of the songs was a corrupted jpeg that someone had to unscramble and put through google image search to find his bandcamp. this might be self promotion, but I dont quite think it qualifies as 'shameless'.
I kinda have the gut feeling that the album itself isn't cursed, but is kinda a lure to bad spirits/demons. I've listened to some of these songs. Kinda feel a presence that goes away after I stop the music. Hell, maybe its a lure to spirits in general. And that could be why people have "bad luck".
that actually isn't the album that the OP is talking about in his first post, but a different one that a separate anon brought up on the subject early in the thread.
OP's album was determined to be this link
The anon that posted the one with the wizard on the cover reported that he didn't think it was cursed per se, but that it gave him a bad feeling to listen to it, similar to what youre describing yourself.
well, I'd say this thread is probably a good vote towards the power of the placebo effect considering that people are now using op's instructions with an album he didn't produce and reporting back strange occurrences. Pretty interesting stuff, indeed.
a few others I can remember were about a brazilian monster that turned out to be a jerry rigged electrical impulse controlled corpse with a machine inserted into its stomach to baraage unsuspecting natives with toxic gas. a skeleton found in someones backyard that was carbon dated as being over a million years old but identified as a man that lived in the 1960s who had supposedly volunteered for a time travel experiment, and a group of elderly folk that were living in the basement of a nursing home and using structures made from playing cards to accurately predict coordinates for enemy missile strikes and using the info to phone in anonymous tips to the US govt.
So yes, that was the most believable one.
Well guys I sat and listened to this thing last night and just heard a few hours ago that the CDC has confirmed someone in my state to be infected with the ebola virus.
listened to it last night. gf broke up with me this morning.
fuck you op
Uh, ok, so I've got a bit of a weird story to report. After following the instructions and listening to this stupid thing all the way through without interruption, I started seeing 'shadow people'. But, not like out of the corner of my eye or from my peripheral, like I was straight up just staring at them as if they were in the room with me hanging out and not giving a fuck. I thought it must have been a reality glitch or something at first. The moment I got up to get a closer look, they vanished and since then I haven't been able to shake this really deep sense of impending calamity, should I be concerned about this?
Alright, tried it again last night, and, long story short, I dreamed once more about a song that did not exist on either album. This one was weirder, it was pretty much an identical loop of some kind of creepy violin or other similar instrument. I had no control over this dream. Once again, Art Bell was saying something, and although this /felt/ more clear, audio quality wise, I couldn't actually make out or understand the words. From his tone of voice he sounded like he was giving instructions of some sort, like it wasn't meant to be aired.
This was definitely noticeably creepier than the last dream, and I'm starting to get worried. Not only is it similar (long, unchanging song that doesn't occur on either album), but it had a feel to it that I can only describe as what stumbling upon some esoteric ritual in a forest must feel like. Like I wasn't meant to be hearing it. I'm about to go to sleep again in a little bit, and frankly, I think I'll do it without the album tonight.
Anyone have any rational explanations for what happened? Did my mind just sort of create some weird shit in the dream based on similar sounds it heard while it was awake? That's a convenient way to explain the Art Bell voice, though not the weird nature of the music.
i listened to this shit yesterday. this morning i woke up with a migraine that could blot the fucking sun. i had to call in to work because of how bad it is. i cant think straight, my palms are sweating, nothing even makes sense, all I can focus on is my pain. op why would you do this?
This was the album that OP posted before deleting his post.
another anon used corrupted data attached to the files from the wikisend link to find OPs bandcamp and the subsequent album link here.
>Did my mind just sort of create some weird shit in the dream based on similar sounds it heard while it was awake?
DING DING DING WE HAVE A WINNER
As long as we're on the subject I might as well post this. Haven't seen this version posted on /x/ yet, it's probably my favorite one. Reminds of me of what I think a tortured soul trying to make contact with the living world would sound like.
>mfw I've begun listening to None Of This Is Real at work
What am I in for, bros? Should I include Galactic Survey for maximum curse spoops tonight? I work graveyard shift.
Wait, wait, wait. You DO know this one, right? I mean you heard it, correct? If previous Anon's tales are correct you start you'll hear stuff.
And I strongly identify with D&D and other forms of creative story telling.
Just making sure it's not placebo. Distorted sounds can make you hear things that aren't there. I thought I might of dreamed up the sound of a D&D session subconsciously.
Example: Turn on a pure static TV channel. If you believe in spirits and stuff, you'll hear voices and stuff. If you're a musician, you hear music. Etc. It's a form of Placebo effect.
well, people are falling for it. someone has literally tricked several people on /x/ into playing music with some kind of bad spirit lure grafted to it, myself included.
"none of this is real" isn't even the one that gave me the most chills. "peel sessions" opens with a song that VERY CLEARLY is intended to summon something. i'm afraid to even open "satan in the suburbs" and most of the other albums there.
another thing to note: look at the dates on each album's page. people, BE CAREFUL.
go ahead, listen to the "GeoAngel Morgellons Clearing":
whatever the purpose of the song, it's clearly NOT meant to clear away morgellons (which is a purely psychosomatic disease but something many people suffer from nonetheless). something sinister is obviously going on, not necessarily in an audible way. if anything, the audio component of this person's music is meant purely as a distraction from whatever's really going on.
evidence to support this? well, he's releasing at least one album PER MONTH. that's why i said to pay attention to the dates. think about everything that goes into making music. most musical artists take years to make an album. if i had to make a guess i'd say he's only acting as the distributor/publisher for a society or organization that creates this stuff, and employs several people. and also going by this logic, that means we should expect to see another one of these "albums" this month. several of the albums are available to buy on cassette, and while i can't really think of a truly supernatural reason for that, it stands to reason that an analog form of audio is going to act as less of a barrier to the real world compared to digital (i.e., CD), the same way tissue paper is less of a barrier than, say, printer paper, or construction paper.
all i'm saying is, watch out for your safety out there, people. the internet is a wonderful tool but it's also a hiding place for some sinister things.
Someones been following me. I can't tell who and I'm not eager to find out. I listened to this a few days ago for kicks (did anyone figure out who the artist is?) and since then I've been stalked. Whenevre I walk now outside now, I start to hear dull footsteps trailing behind me. I haven't been able to catch a glimpse of them yet, but I can tell theyve been watching me, probably memorizing my routes. every time I try and backtrack my path to confront them, Ive been met with nothing. This is driving me out of my mind. Just a moment ago, I heard the footsteps again while I was within view of my house. I didn't want to let whoever it was learn where I lived, so i had to call up a friend to pick me up as I continued on a false trail. I'm at my friends house now. He friend just came in and told me to stop trying to scare him. When I asked him what he meant, he told me thathe thought he had heard me stomping around up in his attic. i've been in his kitchen making us a meal for the past 3 hours. the only way up to the attic is a doorway in his kitchen and all of the entrances and windows leading outside have been locked. what the hell is going on?
Oh hey, neat! Thank you. I'm going to see if I can get in touch with OP, I've got some questions for him. Me and my friend just checked out the attic. While we were walking up the stairs, we thought we heard whispering, but there wasn't anything up there but dust and his xmas decorations. I'll post again if anything else happens.
No? Isn't that the album OP posted?
I don't think either one is cursed. I do believe either one could easily be designed/written to act as a spiritual lure, though. That's a good explanation for what seems to be going on.
For what it's worth, the second album (the wizard one; I feel uncomfortable typing its name for some reason) seems to have lots of sub-hearing-level tones embedded in its songs to act as triggers. These might be the cause of the dream-only music and dialogue people are hearing - think of it like a kind of zip or rar file for your brain. Nothing terribly supernatural about it.
>well, he's releasing at least one album PER MONTH.
> implying folks like MC Frontalot never released a song a day for an entire year...must be paranormal
Musicians also tend to sit on tracks for a very long time.
If there's something sinister going on, it's not affecting me, and I just find this to be unique and awesome.
I'm willing to bet some of these tunes use the sound-to-picture (and vice-versa) program that Aphex Twin used...perhaps more can be figured out doing that?
It's an interesting style of music, I like it. I feel like you guys are psyching yourselves out. Some of you need to lay off of /x/ for a bit. Go outside, read a book, get some ice cream with your friends. By believing all the shit you read on /x/ you're just scaring yourselves.
Well, he's being a dick, and maybe the viral accusations are unfounded, but he's right about the music clearly being the work of someone who just recently got into music and not some longtime producer like OP claims.
it says right on the bandcamp page that the release date for the album was october 23rd 2010 aka 4 years ago so I don't really see that being likely. I just flat out don't agree with the rest of it. The first half of the album has little to no drums in it at all, it reads like he skipped to the last 4 tracks and listened to each one for 10 seconds. I rather enjoyed it personally, I think its a very interesting blend of classical themes with a new age take on them and I'm glad I actually took the time to listen to it before assuming this anon gave it any more than a dismissive skim of an observation.
if any of you anons are looking for a song that might scare some evil spirits away rather than attracting them you could try this one
it's still kind of spooky but I always feel a lot better after I hear it for some reason
I'm fairly annoyed with the fact that OP hasn't been seen posting again since receiving such an armchair review for something he didn't seem interested in sharing with the board in the first place. That kind of assertion is something I'd expect to read on a /mu/ thread as a response to some neophytes "rate my album" post, not here for a "I think my songs are cursed and I'd like some assistance with it" discussion.
Alright /x/, this is going to sound really strange. I am able to induce vivid day dreams on command. If I'm pacing or walking I guess I don't focus on what I'm seeing and so it makes it easier for me to pay attention to my mind's eye. I don't have hallucinations; I imagine everything I "see" just as I'm sure most people see images in their mind, but in a way they are much more detailed and I often contemplate complicated fantasy scenarios. I find that music helps this process as well, songs can provide me with a sense of atmosphere which usually dominates the scenarios I imagine.
tl;dr I have vivid daydreams while listening to music and pacing back and forth
Should I try doing this with some of these songs/albums and post results? I don't believe in the supernatural myself, but I almost expect something strange to happen.
Was actually planning on doing those two, maybe I'll try the third as well. The only problem I'm faced with is that I have to have something in mind that I want to imagine; things don't just come to me. I guess I'll just try and see whatever comes to me and see how it's affected.
I think he might be assuming that OP used pre-made breaks or riffs that came default with his DAW. If that is the case, then I'd have to agree with him.
If it isn't and the compositions are original, then its a fucking masterpiece.
Yep, basically this
A strong act of creation releases a lot of emotional/astral and mental/etheric energy. OP shaped this energy with is will and imagination to serve a specific purpose (curse).
By telling everyone it's cursed, he's using the collective unconscious of everyone who listens to it to strengthen and reinforce the curse by adding their own emotional/astral and mental/etheric energies.
The album is the link to the curse, so destroying all copies of the album and then basically forgetting you ever created it should help dispel any effects. To be safe you could create another album with the intention of nullifying the effects of this one, like >>15283158 suggested.
Different anon here, I think I'm going to take my chances and buy the tape for five bucks. I will play the entire album through and through before I go to sleep. If this thread is gone I'll start a new one to describe anything that happens that seems out of place.
Ok, so a bit of an update. I hadn't been heard those footsteps for a while, but things have just been getting weird. I live in a house by myself. For the past few days, my doors have been closing themselves after I leave the room. The first time it happened, I thought it was odd but that I had probably just pulled on it too hard as I was walking out. The next time it happened, I had all ready been out of the room for a good 2 minutes. The last time it happened, the door slammed and made me jump, prompting me to run back into the room because I thought someone had to have been in my house, but I of course found nothing. Whenever I tread my staircase late at night, I can hear stomping trailing me as if my ascension is repeating itself. It's made me uncomfortable enough to avoid using them as much as possible. Just tonight, I had gone into the living room to retrieve a book from the shelf and while I was scanning to find it, I started to hear those footsteps again directly behind me. I tried to turn around quickly, expecting the worst, but only had the chance to turn my head slightly to the right in time to watch a stranger with his back turned towards me drag his feet into the next room. Something about watching that severed the shot of adrenaline I had received from hearing the footsteps. Like thinking about the fact that this guy was just walking around in my house and considered me a background element while he made his way to wherever he was going really put me on edge. But I quickly snapped myself back into reality and went after him to once again be met with nothing. I had waited a moment to try and find the guy but there was no way in hell he could have made it back outside in such a short amount of time. I've tried searching all over the house but I haven't been able to find him anywhere. I can't get the image out of my head of him just nonchalantly drifting past me. I hope to god I just imagined it.
I tried to, but the police around here aren't incredibly helpful. When I told them over the phone that all my doors and windows had been locked and that I couldn't find any signs of a break in, they sort of just shrugged me off and said to call again if anything else happens. I think they do everything they can to avoid having to file a report.
Just out of curiosity...I see this dude's made lots of music. Is there anything on his site that could cancel out any ill effects from "None Of This Is Real"? Like an album designed to ward off any spirits/spiritual residue that "None Of This Is Real" might attract, or at least one that happens to fill that role? Thanks.
I bought the tape of this album after seeing it on /mu/ and the insert has a sigil inside of it. It sounds weird, even if it isn't cursed it has that feeling to it.
It was this one. >>15298513
I've really wanted to listen to it again, but I'm too scared that this shit will get worse. It's a bit of a conundrum. I actually sent a message to the creator to see if I could get some insight into the whole thing, but he hasn't responded to me yet. I hope he replies soon, don't know how much more of this I can take.
Why not? I've felt so strange ever since I've listened to this track... I've been catching way more shadow people in my peripheral vision for starters, been having trouble sleeping, been having really messed up dreams where I can hear the music when I do sleep. I'm legitimately frightened.
this guy's on the right track. if we're going to do this (deliberately buy a cursed tape to see what happens) we should do it objectively and as empirically as this sort of thing allows.
i just bought a copy. i also live in west virginia. does anyone think i should try to get in touch with this dj rozwell, maybe let him know? should i try to meet him in person?
It's fucking weird, I don't know how to list out the tracks, they are all labeled the same, there are some samples from old 1980's vhs/betamax tapes. I get a little lightheaded with some of the light frequency noises playing after a while...
Here's the other side, I didn't notice the track list on the back, the digital copy for some reason doesn't say the tracks, I also noticed the cassette sounds more slowed down and has a lower pitch sound that I couldn't hear in the digital one...
there hasn't really been any sort of evidence pointing to the notion that this tape is cursed and I don't think you should bother the artist, especially if you don't have any sort of occurences to reference. what are you going to let him know exactly? that his music gives people nightmares? im sure he'll appreciate that.
I'm sure it isnt cursed but I'm a huge boards of canada fag and some of the songs on their old tunes compilations make me uncomfortable and generally make me feel strange even though i like listening to them
oh and ruth whites music is generally freaky but its probably pretty tame in comparison to some of these other songs in the thread. its really weird that ruth white did educational and childrens songs and also did a song about satan
once i downloaded 3 albums that supossedly contained recordings from possesions, raps, exorcisms, ghost n demon voices, the works.
never heard them, still sitting in a corner of my computer, separated from the rest of the music.
leave what unsolved? no it's not really 'worth a shot' at all, that's kind of my point. it's just a bunch of trip hop songs with a vinyl emulation effect on them, not a reason to start a manhunt.
>imagining that conversation
>"hello, is this mr. dj rozwell?"
>"hi there, I'm from the internet. one of your albums popped up on 4chan in a thread about cursed audio."
>"yes, hello. I was wondering if you could shed some light onto the origin of your albums curse-"
>"who is this?"
>"I am an anonymous browser of the /x/ board on 4chan."
>"could you please explain the origin of your albums curse?"
>"my album is cursed?"
>"what makes you say that?"
>"well it's made like 5 people on the internet feel kind of uncomfortable while they were listening to it."
>"I was wondering if you might have a chance to discuss this further in person. Would you be free any time next week?"
>"I need to get going now, so long."
>"WHAT ARE YOU HIDING?! I WANT ANSWERS!"
you know what, fuck it. go for it. record the conversation and post it here afterwards.
Hey man, I'm actually Volant, stop posing as me dude. Not cool. Thanks.
I guess /x/ isn't dark and edgy enough for the musical styling of premature ejaculation/rozz williams. the rabbit hole is dark with this one /x/.
R.I.P in pieces, Rozz.
