Short bio (in your own words):
You’ve come upon an abandoned house in the woods. In the frigid winter wind you hear the strains of music coming from the house. Parts of a song you swear you have heard before, maybe a little too loud, definitely out of tune. Though all the doors are locked you find a broken window you can just slip in without cutting yourself on the broken glass. The house is empty, except for
Whatever nature has let in, debris, leaves, mice. The sounds get louder as you approach the entrance of an upstairs room. You open the door.
