Who we are



In A World Music began a decade ago writing music for Halloween and Horror. Our Halloween albums have been licensed for film, television, and even for Halloween events like Knott’s Scary Farm. One Halloween, while we were putting on a neighborhood haunt and blasting our creepy music, a friend asked us, kind of jokingly, to create a children’s CD for Halloween because our music was a little too intense and scary for their little ones. We thought that was a great idea, and we released our first children’s CD, “My Halloween,” filled with catchy kid’s songs in 2008. We wanted to make it even more accessible to children, and so the Nirks (named after us, Nicole and Dirk!) were born. Being very low budget, we created puppets out of recycled materials and literally stuff we found in the garage for our first puppet video, “Trick-or-Treat, “ and it got an incredible response from fans on YouTube! 


Creators of the Macabre.  In A World... has been creating soundtracks for film, television, commercials, Haunts and theme parks for over a decade.  Our Haunted Music is the creepiest around.  

Our Children's music is unmatched for quality and fun and is accompanied by some of the cutest puppet videos.  

We continue to produce dark and sinister music for the deranged, and family friendly music for the rest.  Why do we do both?  In A World... is schizophrenic.  Yin and Yang, Dark and Light.  We remain balanced in an unbalanced world.  

We strive to create ways to scare and delight to this day.  Enjoy the weirdness that is In A World... 


THE NIRKS


The Nirks are our puppets that sing and entertain with our all-original kid's music and stories.  We love making children happy, and keeping families laughing as well as helping them learn and have fun.


The Nirks (named after us, Nicole and Dirk!) were born when we needed a way to promote our kid's music and what better way than via YOUTUBE! Being very low budget, our very first puppets were created out of old junk we had in the garage.  We continue to build all of our own puppets using mostly recycled materials we find in the garage, at garage sales or thrift shops.  Our puppets may be made out of old rags, dusters and bits of old toys, but they are all made with love and come alive to entertain, educate and delight children and families.


A majority of the voices are done by Nicole, who, if you ask her family, could make you have an animated discussion with a stapler before you even knew what was happening.  Both Nicole and Dirk have a knack for voices and enjoy bringing new, quirky personalities to life with each new puppet.

REVIEWS & WRITE-UPS!
Here’s what some people are saying about Our Music:

 “It’s awesome. An engaging blend of music and sound effects, it’s evocative of a number of musical influences while retaining its own original style - at times genuinely haunting and creepy, at other times with a kick-ass beat!  I buy a lot of haunted house, Halloween and Sound FX CDs every year, and this is one of the best ones I heard this year, hands down. Highly recommended.”

-Chad Savage – The Sinister Circuit

 “Superior quality haunt soundtracks from fellow haunters. “

“The wall of sound reaches full-blown orchestral levels that would not sound out of place in the concert hall or on the soundtrack to a motion picture.”

-Hollywood Gothique

“The music (My Halloween) was excellent, creepy yet geared towards children and fun! I felt that these tracks could be used for a haunt or for sing alongs.”
