Playlist

  

Below is the playlist for Book 1 of the Colony Series, Among Us. You will find the music to be dark, seductive, impassioned, and at times eerie. The music reflects the tone of the story, which is all of that and more. There is a distinct trance element to both the music and the story...where does the reality end? Enigma, Delerium and Depeche Mode were heavy influences on the story. Their music is visceral, suggestive, and dwells in the realm of things hidden from most.

Below is a list with links to YouTube videos for the music. We do not endorse or support any of the material, websites, products, or services on or in association with the videos, unless specifically stated.

You may also find the playlist on Rhapsody-AmongUs, and YouTube.com, Among Us by Morgan Summerfield.


 

Best ways to enjoy the music: Since the music could not be timed to the story, it is not possible to just 'let it play'. My first suggestion is to listen to the playlist through one time to get a 'feel' for where you are headed. Then, put the music or the link to the music in a handy location. Print out the playlist PDF and keep it handy as you read. When you reach a place where the suggested music applies, stop reading, play the music through with your eyes closed, imagining the characters and what they are doing or might do. When the music for the section is finished, continue reading.

You may be surprised how much more you "feel" when you use this technique. If you really want to 'kick it up' a notch, find some roses and cherries (or the fragrances) and take a deep breath of them whenever the scent is mentioned. Your read will become 'experiential' and you will connect with the story on many levels. (Eternity Rose Blush or Giorgio Red might fill the bill.)`

Note: If you see a hyperlink, the music has a video on youtube.com. We do not promote, approve, or have any affiliation with youtube, any of the videos, sponsors, or advertisers. The link is there simply to help you connect with the music. As you know, links can be good today and bad tomorrow. While we try to check them frequently, we cannot guarantee a live link.
