Whats some really scary background music for a witch?
Im making a short movie and working really hard on it. I really need background music for when the witch attacks! It's renassance time so no insane modern stuff and nothing cheesy. It should only be instrumental (no words) and be relitivly long. Not halloween music, no rap or screamo, something that sounds really evil and mad! Thanks :)
These were great but i can't find a download for it and i don't have itunes.
Mediafire and 4share r really good : 3

I think a lot of modern classical music is totally scary. Threnody to The Victims of Hiroshima by Krzysztof Penderecki is probably the scariest piece of music I've ever heard. Stanly Kubrick used it in The Shining but it would be well worth reusing.
Kubrick also used a lot of music from Gyorgy Ligeti in The Shining, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and Eyes Wide Shut that is really creepy. The pieces Lux Aeterna and Atmospheres that he used in 2001 get very ominous sounding.
Iannis Xenakis' Hibiki Hana Ma also has some creepy sounding moments, the beginning of Arnold Schoenberg's A Survivor of Warsaw is great plus it gets a little unsettling when people start shouting in German (maybe your witch could be German?), and around 3:10 George Crumb's Voices of Ancient Children gets a little crazy.
If you want to swipe some music written for horror films, Jerry Goldmisth's Ave Satani from The Omen and Bernard Herrmann's shocker music and prelude from Psycho are absolute classics. Plus the music that Tobe Hooper and Wayne Bell made for the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre is some of the scariest music ever made!

If your looking for epic instrumental music then i'd look at The Legend of Spyro's soundtracks. Here are some links:
(skip to 1:04 for epic part)
and theres plenty others on youtube, you just gotta look :/
EDIT: what i'd do is download youtube downloader from dvdvideosoft. Its free and allows you to download youtube videos to MP3 to use for your movie.Source(s): Youtube, The epicness that is Spyro, etc.
