[presented as a gift to earth - source unknown. response requested. interpreter required.]

      "re mi do2 do1 so "

Composition: any duration, any number of players.

Starting in any pitch desired, [Bb, a.k.a H, is a good one, being close to the current humming of electricity], begin a drone.

Add octave. 2

Add perfect fifth. 3

Add more octaves :) 4

Add the Major Third. 5

Add more 3  [we're just going to have to get used to calling this "3" and not the fifth]. 6

Add the flat seventh [convenient - no change necessary :D ]. 7

Again with the octaves. 8

Now the scale 7. 8. 9. 10. do re me. [but not 1 2 3 - you see?]. 9 & 10

11? jazz it up a bit, let the blues take you! [#11, again, strange coincidence or universal trait?]

And if you're following me on this, peace out, dude. 12.

then, bliss out on ur chromatic  13, 7*2, 5*3,


Everyone can join in. solo. hum the drone note. [1,2,4,8], 3, 5, 6,... whatever.


Repeat endlessly, until exhaustion, frenzy, trance, mystical illumination then cool down, and take the big plunge:

MA, 2/3.

 9, 10, 8, 4, 6...

If you play it in tune, as I insist it must be, you do not return to the same spot twice. ever.


[This requires a response...

if you ask nicely...

I'll tell you the code answer, ha, ha, ha - or should it be lololololol!?
