In France, a young ambient musician by the name of Charles undertook an interesting new project. He was going to record the sound of himself sleeping, and release it under the name “La Nuit” (The Night). Charles lived alone in a rural area, which would remove things like car alarms, traffic, and such from being recorded. He planned his project for many months, acquiring the sensitive equipment to capture all outside noises as well as his own during sleep.

Finally, on the 27th of September, he decided to execute his plan. He set up all his equipment, and fell at sleep at midnight.

The next day Charles reviewed the recording. For the first hour, the recording played his own tossings and turnings as well as some distant dog barks and a few car alarms (So much for his plan to distance himself from cars). These continued throughout the 2nd hour as well, until Charles heard something that horrified him.

For at exactly 3 hours and 24 minutes in, the recording played the sound of his bedroom door opening.

    Hello.

    Perhaps this is not a tale of the unnatural, yet it is wondrous nonetheless.

      Funny for you to say that, Welldone. You’re the one here most likely to have opened that door.

    This is creepy if you think “person a in bed, person b sneaking in” but the first thing I thought of was that the dude sleep walks.

    Doh.

    IN the right context though, nice n creepy. I was half expecting him to hear random tortuous screams though.

      Ya but wouldn’t there be floor boards creeking? Sheets rustling as he gets up? The padding of feet to the door? Maybe a key sign like he stops snoring or some type of movement? I mean that record player is very sensitive.

      “Secret rape man”
      I don’t think that’s a thing.

    This one scared the shit out of me and I don’t know why… Just unexpected I guess. I was expecting demon screams or something…

    I really enjoyed this. I like anything horrific that’s expressed by banal details; the ultra-specific time of the door opening makes it feel all the more real.

    I did this once, recording myself sleeping. The creepiest thing I got was a few voices that I didn’t recognize. Scared the crap outta me.

    Tasty pasta. If someone entered my room in the middle of the night without me knowing, I would move immediately.

    Not scary; mostly because I live in a place so windy that doors opening and closing at night are common place during the summer because the windows are open

    The wind could have blew the door open somewhat. If you said “the sound of the door opening and
    the creaking of footsteps with a faint sound of one unzipping their pants. Within 10 seconds he began to hear struggling noises as the bed began to pound against his bedroom wall.

    LOL
