In celebration of his 30th year as a songwriter, Gavin has unlocked the doors to his musical archive and will be featuring previously unreleased recordings made during the late 1980s and early 1990s on his website, http://gavingoszka.com. This formative period saw Gavin exploring some of the genres that influenced him the most at that time – New Age, pop, and traditional Irish music – as well as experimenting with creating the kinds of sonic landscapes that would later become a defining characteristic of his work with Midnight Syndicate. Although the songs were originally recorded on cassette tape using a mix of professional and consumer-grade equipment, the recordings have been carefully restored and remastered in a way that preserves their original character with as little alteration as possible, offering a virtual trip back in time to revisit Gavin’s earliest songwriting adventures.

ABOUT MIDNIGHT SYNDICATE
For over two decades, composers Edward Douglas and Gavin Goszka have been known as Midnight Syndicate, creating symphonic soundtracks to imaginary films that facilitate a transcendental and adventurous escape into the secret dimensions of the mind’s eye. To many of their fans, they are horror music pioneers brewing a signature blend of instrumental orchestral gothic music and movie-style sound effects. To others, they remain the first “haunted house band” that forever changed the Halloween music genre and became a staple of the October holiday season. Still others, know them for their contributions to the use of music in the roleplaying and board game industries.
