Polish composer Krzysztof Penderecki’s “The Dream of Jacob” is featured during the scene in which Jack Torrance (The Shining) is having a nightmare after falling asleep at his desk in the cavernous Colorado Lounge. Here’s something to try. Real fun to walk around the workplace while listening to it on headphones. You too, can start your own horrific screaming, just like Jack around the 2 minute mark when you realize that you’re losing your mind, endlessly walking the abandoned halls of your workplace, searching for an existentialist exit that will never, ever materialize.
Turn it up for maximum freak out.
