about

"In Sardinia, one of Italy's islands, there is an old belief that identifies the cause of sleep paralysis in a demoniac being called "Ammuttadori". This ghoulish creature sits in the chest of the sleeping victim, suffocating him and, sometimes, ripping the skin with his nails. It is also believed, in some parts of the island, that this demon wears seven red caps on his head: if the victim resists the pain and succeeds to steal one of the caps, he will soon find a hidden treasure as a reward."

Created with synthesisers, samples and lots and lots of reverb.
Presented with acknowledgment to Christopher Young's Hellraiser suite: several samples totalling 30 (original, realtime) seconds of it are used in this work.
