Howard Carter has been at the heart of Textbook Stuff from the very beginning. His music and sound design have defined the feel of all our releases and we've loved his work so much that we've always included special music suites on each of our titles. It was our initial intention to augment these suites with other incidental music from each release and compile them into a single soundtrack album, but that seemed slightly tame. After all, you'd heard it all before.

Instead, Howard came up the idea of Dark Light - eight brand new pieces of music inspired by his work on our first four horror and poetry titles. Each suite has been composed from scratch in a style to suit the subject matter: a Symphonic Poem for Edgar Allan Poe, a full-blown overture for Robert Browning and so on. The result is an album positively fizzing with Howard's characteristic energy, lyricism and inventiveness.
