Continuing the theme of creepy music through Holloween: This week’s selection features Native American flutes, bowed prayer bowls, a spring drum, and an unusual instrument known as a Lion’s Roar.

Though computers can make wonderful sounds, I think that the most expressive music comes from human beings playing physical instruments. This remains true even when the music is disquieting rather than melodic.
