The Tide Recedes is a beautiful, poignant game that symbolically addresses the destructive cycles that can arise in abusive relationships. This was the final track I wrote for the game jam, and I pondered how best to approach the music throughout the weekend. In this piece the instruments are gradually layered in repeating patterns to create an ever increasing sense of tension. Within the repetitive structure, I added an improvised piano melody that eventually segues into the climactic portion of the piece.
