Comprised of cEvin Key, Ken 'hiwatt' Marshall & Traz Damji, Scaremeister is a dark and deeply haunting approach to the horror/thriller film genre. Consisting of 31 unique 'mini-scores' of original sound design, the work is equally compelling as individual tracks or as an album. 31 Spirits is guaranteed to disturb. "Scaremeister is a project and partnership with two of my best friends and long-term collaborators, cEvin Key and Traz Damji. We made a deal with Groove Addicts in 2007 (now Non-Stop Music/Warner Chappell), to compose a 'volume' of film trailer cues for horror movies. The following year, we produced 31 cues that were very well received by the film community. -Ken 'hiwatt' Marshall
