Copy the sight symbol onto the notepad. Both of us (me and Noir) should try to focus on it and ourselves.

Scribe the following image next to (on both sides), above, and beneath the sight symbol and repeat the process, trying to focus on different combinations of ourselves and the symbols:

Write down this series of symbols (replace the asterisks with dots) and focus on them/ourselves:

                                                                         __  _   _
[The two leftmost symbols on the strange device] |*| |_  |*

Repeat the process with the sight and might runes (adjacent to each other).

Scribe the two leftmost runes on the strange device onto the piece of paper in reverse order and repeat the process.

"Some of them sound like your imaginary friends, but you think you might've almost heard them at other various times in the past, too."

When were those times, and what happened during/before/after them?

I'm personally guessing we can't find things out unless we be proactive.

Forward! Advance towards the music! (As in proceed into the next room)

Looks like the SV thread needs a bit more love. :<

..."Me"?

I don't think this is the right time we should do this--save the introspection for later.
We however do know that there's something going on with Noir here :D

Copy the sight symbol onto the notepad. Both of us (me and Noir) should try to focus on it and ourselves.

Scribe the following image next to (on both sides), above, and beneath the sight symbol and repeat the process, trying to focus on different combinations of ourselves and the symbols:

Write down this series of symbols (replace the asterisks with dots) and focus on them/ourselves:

                                                                         __  _   _
[The two leftmost symbols on the strange device] |*| |_  |*

Repeat the process with the sight and might runes (adjacent to each other).

Scribe the two leftmost runes on the strange device onto the piece of paper in reverse order and repeat the process.

Alright, you think you get it. You're not sure it will do anything, but suppose it can't hurt to try.



Concentrating on it doesn't seem to do anything. You try adding some more symbols



Concentrating still doesn't seem to do anything. Neither does concentrating on both it and any of the distinct voices. Are you voices sure you're concentrating, too? Well, guess you'll try the next set, though you're pretty sure that set of symbols isn't quite right. You copy off the pipe for good measure.




Nope. Try and focus as you might, it doesn't really seem to do anything. Also...

Might rune? Which one's that? You decide to put a pin in this for now, and put your new notepad and pencil away, along with the bone arm.

Forward! Advance towards the music! (As in proceed into the next room)



As you head towards the darker tunnel, you can make out the music a little more clearly. It sounds kind of brassy, and a little sad. You step through the doorway.



○ You can make it out a lot better in here. It sounds like... a saxophone? Definitely a saxophone. Sounds like mostly sharp notes, too.

Approach cautiously, I guess.

What sort of music is that?


 
Looks like the lights in the direction the music's coming from stop after a bit. Still, you approach cautiously, taking care to tread as silently as possible. The music seems to repeat itself after a short time, though it sounds perhaps like a slightly different permutation.

Woo, holidays took quite a pass for busyness :P Sorry for that Hugo.
((Has anyone told you your art is amazing? :v))

Also TBF, you're posting there than here? XD Nice to see you on the other nice forum.


Greet the creature making the music.
...
Make a Perception roll if that's the best approach.

Really unsure if we're being rude interrupting a person's music, but best just announce ourselves because given the lighting and such, we're clearly visible. Although that darkness is pretty palpable. Wondering if that creature has an aura or something, or it's just the bad lighting conditions :P

Key? :-X :-[
I'm not familiar with terms but I read all the notes as if in piano or by flute. Do you mean the clef? I'm not that knowledgeable in music.

It does seem like the mystery figure is using some kind of saxophone or something though.

We really should have investigated that strange machine further. Y'know, seeing whether or not there's anywhere that we can put things in it or if we can disassemble it. At the very least, we could have tried to break it to see what would happen.

Oh.
Isn't this the G-clef?

Edit: I'm trying to replicate the song (offline) but I haven't found any 'programs' that could both save and play it online :I
It's quite a nice tune there!
