In music, a fugue (/fjuːɡ/ fewg) is a contrapuntal compositional technique in two or more voices, built on a subject (a musical theme) that is introduced at the beginning in imitation (repetition at different pitches) and which recurs frequently in the course of the composition.

Psychologenic fugue is a condition characterized by a temporary loss of sense of personal identity. During a state of fugue, the patient is prone to impulsive wandering, with little to no recollection of memory. Inhabiting the mind of a fictional character diagnosed with psychologenic fugue, the story follows the character’s attempt to reconstruct his memory, one where he finds himself trapped inside a claustrophobic building, chased by figures from his past. Even as the character returns to his pre-dissociative state, his mind remains dangerously out of control. [Shooting Home 2014]
