Warning: the following anomaly is affected by communication. Do not refer to it in speech or writing unless trained.

The piece in question comes from a world in which melodies have power.

As such, this musical offering's predominant motivic material cannot be stated, or referred to, in the same way more than once, in order that the presiding forces cannot utilise the sonic characteristics to gain power over the listener.

In order to communicate an unstated theme to our audience, the sonoric work has been constructed to infer its musical concepts, so that those who exist beyond the music do not embue those who hear this sensory experience with a terrible fate...

Taboo is inspired in part by SCP-4000: Taboo, written by PeppersGhost for the SCP Foundation collaborative fiction series.


'Taboo' was premiered by Ben Tarlton on 10 December 2022 at Thames Concerts, St. Andrew's Church, Surbiton.
