Let's see if we can determine what this tone sequence is. I recall
a particular tone sequence from when I was in college, I'll describe
it and see if you can play it on a piano (a 9-foot Steinway would be
great, but any cheap musical keyboard will do), and then hear if you
can recognize it as being the same tone sequence.
Look in the middle of the (piano/musical) keyboard. There are areas
of three black keys, and of two black keys. These are used for
reference only, you won't play them (ISTR this was originally in the
key of D, but I've taken the effort to transpose it to C to make it
easier to play and explain), you'll only play the white keys. When I
say go right or left a certain number of keys, count only the white
Between the set of two black keys is the D key. Press it. To its
immediate right is the E key. Press it. Two keys to the left of the E
key is the C key. Press it. Seven keys to the left of the C key is
another C key. Press it. Four keys to the right of the most recent C
key is a G key. Press it.
You have just generated the five-tone sequence that is, loosely
speaking, the Universe-wide equivalent of an "SOS" call. Was this the
tone sequence you heard earlier? It could be that someone needs your
