Dark Dice is a horror actual-play D&D podcast that uses immersive soundscapes to create an added layer of immersion. Six travelers embark on a journey into the ruinous domain of the nameless god. They will never be the same again.

Jan 21, 2020

This week we talk about how the music to Dark Dice was made! We also discuss working with a 40 person choir, creating music for horror, and some of the strange happenings in the process.

We talk with Hem Cleveland, Travis Vengroff, Enzo Puzzovio, Ryan McQuinn, and Steven Melin.
