Would You Record Music in a Haunted House??? (I Would, You Pansy)

I’m weird, and I love to record music.  This combination has me in the mood to record in some unconventional places.  Below are the next five I want to try.  I think the sound could be interesting and ass-kicking.

1.  Inside one of those gargantuan water towers.  It’s imperative that it be exactly 1/3 full of water (or preferably cherry Kool-Aid).  This would be the first time in my life that I would record while wearing a life-jacket (though I did nearly drown while recording a song once…that story is for another time).

Looks like a freaking blast

2.  Inside an elephant’s stomach.  Don’t worry, I’m an animal lover.  However, I’d love to find the right opportunity to record a quick song some time when a pachyderm is scheduled for stomach surgery.  I’d pop my head and a minimal amount of sterile recording equipment in and just let it rip.  I dream of the sound that would produce.

3.  In an island cave. My intense fear of bats (one actually flew into me one time, leaving me with a nose bleed) is the major hindrance here.  I’m currently in psychotherapy to overcome it just so I can record a song in a location not unlike the one below.  (We’re not getting very far, though, as my therapist seems obsessed with my sex dreams.)

Yuck, imagine the bat dung

4.  From inside a UFO.  I don’t care if it’s from space or a secret government aircraft or a weather balloon.  I just want to sing inside something that is freaking someone out on the ground.

5.  From inside a haunted house (like the one below in the Smoky Mountains, courtesy of this site). I want to be the first to have ghostly backing vocals in my music, ala EVPs.  That would be sweeter than I could ever put into words.

I’m always interested in strange places to record.  Leave your ideas here.  Peace.  (Coming soon:  My next music video called Herpes # 1.)
