Very short loop originally written on 8 April 2020, the 8th day of the spring run of 21 Days of VGM last year. The prompt was "Secret Meeting."


I have first-hand experience with the title. I grew up in a place where anyone could be taken away to God knows where in the night to be tortured, interrogated, and killed if one's constitution was weak enough to not suffer much brutality. I channelled all the visceral fear I felt into this piece, from moments in my childhood and adolescence where I and others around me needed to speak in hushed tones for fear of being overheard.


I remember feeling that exact visceral fear as soon as I heard the finished work, and it still incites that same fear in me today -- as if I didn't already need to try and process it without any auditory cues.

Well done, anxiety level set at 1000%. Those background strings really did the trick.

Great loop. Has a lot of tension.

This sounds like it needs to be in a game. If I ever make a game, I'm hiring you on the music!

Troisnyx responds:

That is kind of you, thank you. ❤️ I hope you do hit me up with some deets when you get round to it!
