Sounds like a circus of the circuits. That laughter and glitchy radio sound is scary as all get out!  This would be great backing music for American Horror Story or something of that genre. Some of the piano tones sound like a piano being played from the inside with mallets or plucking the strings.  Great track for Halloween!

Hope I don't get in trouble for what I put that piano through...

Hilarious, disturbing, and unsettling!  Excellent work!

(Picking up a Residents vibe from this somehow.)

Nails that freaky clown vibe.  A perfect Halloween track indeed.

A creepy carnival of sounds indeed!  Very effective and spooky!

Woah ... the looming music with the laughter is quite terrifying. The laughter hits some nice rhythms and I was bobbing along!

Perhaps because I just saw the PBS "Circus" series; remembering how much the whole thing creeped me out. ::)

Great one for this week, I should play this while the kids come for their treats tomorrow.  As mentioned above piano has a very pleasant prepared piano sound.

Eery fun trip! The panning had me spinning in good way with the headphones on. I like the idea of playing this for trick or treaters. Impressive sample manipulation as always!

I thought of playing it for the T&Ts, but they're all going to regimented "safe" events. More candy for me!

I don't think I've heard a groovy laugh before. Thanks!

Circuit Circus... yes... yes indeed... intense and fun

This is even crazier than before smile I love it!

Great spooky circus vibes, excellent work!

Woah creepy carnival vibes for sure.  This would be a scary soundtrack in a mirror house.  "No don't go that way!".  The laughing reminded me a bit of Joker's laugh ala Batman '89.
