This is an extended version of a short piece of music I did for the penultimate 21 Days of VGM back in April; the original was titled t a c o c a t, a palindrome, as the prompt was for me to make a melody line entirely out of palindromes.

This one is a lot more ambient and harsh than the previous version, but still keeps the palindrome melody line from the piano. This is also, unintentionally, the longest anything I've uploaded onto Newgrounds to date, beating even the likes of child of the woods by a whole 20-something seconds. And that's just talking about the once-over.

The title for this one is also a palindrome, r e v i v e r, and I picked that one specifically for the mental health context of the game jam entry in which this was featured.

The game in which it was featured is called Headspace, and it's a short 72h entry into the 13th Geta Game Jam over on itch.io. It briefly touches on mental health, the headspace, good and bad thoughts, and depression.

The game is currently only available as a Windows build; you can access it here:


I decided to withhold this upload till now, as a sombre farewell to a mournful, sombre, terrible year.

Ambient Musical

sounds dope. can I use it in a animation?

Troisnyx responds:

Let's talk details via PM, shall we? I'd love to know more 👀

Gave me chills but not in the scary way.

Not bad. How can something with the word depression and harsh in it, sound so beautiful?

this sounds great! Is this all synth? That distorted drone sounds almost exactly like an ebow on a guitar!

Troisnyx responds:

Yeah, it's all synth. ☺️ Glad you enjoyed it, thank you for listening!
