ASPHYXIA is a psychological thriller about a young woman who must confront the water that haunts her or remain in the asylum that traps her.



I felt super uneasy from the theme which is the main character’s fear. I wanted to find something that was “watery” sounding so I found a pulse that is kind of a subliminal way of portraying her fear. To me, it sounds like water dripping, but more musical. So once I found the main element to the track, I droned it throughout the entire sequence to a point where it’s almost annoying so you get a similar feeling she does. I added a piano because it hones in on the emotion of the piece. From there, I built it to be more dramatic and dropped it off.
