Music hostage

I don't remember much about my dream last night, but I do remember that it involved a young guy—maybe in the 16-18 range—who was captured and held against his will, forced to create electronic music for his captors. His captors were all middle-aged; two men and two women. They didn't look like relatives, but maybe they were. He had a guitar and keyboard in front of him, wired to a bank of synthesizers, record players, and other musical devices. He himself was strapped to a wooden chair in a dimly-lit basement, and the four of them were demanding that he compose, for his life depended on it.

No wonder the lyrics for "The Postal Service" were so depressing.

Good to see I am not the only one who has off the wall dreams!
