Prompt ~

dismantled keyboardcopyright – Rochelle Wisoff-Fields

Music geeks have come up with an equation that can produce melody that hits the top percentiles with 95% confidence limit. They use the ‘Sure Hit Equation’ to produce most liked tunes.

Professor Aristarchus developed it using the Ultimate Equation, which was presented to Isaac Newton on an incredibly ancient Greek scroll.

Thales working on his PhD under Aristarchus, looking for a shortcut used the equation. He connected a synthesizer to the computer and proceeded with the SHE. An enrapturing melody erupted from the speakers.

A female form wrapped in white-linen materialized and short circuited the contraption with a look.

    • I did not have that SHE in mind while writing this, but why not?

      However, She was an Egyptian priestess who recognized the melody as that used for special ceremonies only – that is how I conceived it.

      Thanks for the read, Janet 🙂

  1. What an unusual take on the prompt. And you left it wide open to our imagination. What I thought was interesting was when I read Janet’s interpretation — and then read your own that you explained in the comment. I didn’t see what either one of you saw. I thought the female figure was supposed to be the Muse of Music who was intent on putting a stop to anyone being able to artificially determine what music was accepted by people and given a place in the world’s history. Amazing what different perspectives can do, isn’t it?

I love arguments
