The Hidden - from the RPG & TableTop Audio Experts

The Ambient Environments soundscapes are quality recordings that combine sound and music into an audio atmosphere for your storytelling games. Each track is ten minutes long, with no fade in/out at the start or end, making them perfect for continuous looping. While reviewing this series, I played each track in the background and often didn't notice when it had started over. The sound levels are compressed very well, which means that there will be very few distracting volume changes when you play these during a session. And at $.99, the price is very reasonable.

The Hidden features suspenseful ambient music, (thrumming bass, swelling strings, distant and echo-ey piano melodies) for those times when the party is on the verge of making a terrible discovery. It sounds like it comes straight from the soundtrack of a Hollywood thriller. Moss would definitely think this one is "ruddy mysterious."

I don't quite know what's "hidden" in this track, unless it's the uncanny resemblance to the theme from "The Exorcist." But the track does a good job of evoking a sense of mystery, melancholy, and perhaps subdued menace. I could easily imagine using this in-game when the PCs are investigating any kind of "dungeon"—from the mines of Moria to a haunted mansion—where the emphasis is on exploring and a mounting sense of dread rather than combat.
