How do you create the sounds of a failed exorcism? How about the smoldering ruins of a forsaken church? The angry buzzing of a thousand flies? Or even a full fledged zombie apocalypse? Every year ScareHouse sound effects designer, Glenn Ricci, and vocalist, Ursula Marcum, create and install dozens of custom-designed soundscapes within Pittsburgh's Ultimate Haunted House.
Glenn and Ursula join host Rob Johnston for a discussion about sound design, recording methods, and the secrets to terrifying thousands of customers every Halloween season. Plus, a rare audio tour through portions of The Forsaken haunt - one of three attractions presented by The ScareHouse this October.
<Glenn "Delirium Dog" Ricci has also just released a second cd of music created for and/or inspired by ScareHouse. FEVER BRAIN BATTERY is available now on iTunes! Look for more information about Glenn's musical contributions in a future episode.
ScareHouse, Pittsburgh's Ultimate Haunted House, has been ranked as one of “America’s Scariest Halloween Attractions” by Travel Channel and featured in multiple online and print publications including USA TODAY, Forbes, AOL News, Yahoo, Funworld, and Money magazine.
