Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: All pieces of SCP-XXXX should be kept in a soundproof chamber of 6x3x3 meters with standard night-vision CCTV installed. Permission to conduct a Level 1 test must be gained from relevant personal and supervised by that individual. For the sake conserving the time and energy of moving SCP-XXXX-1 to separate test chambers, experiments will be conducted in the locker, as there is ample space within.

Level II tests must be requested by 2 Class-C individuals in person to Dr. Gears. During these tests, all relevant persons must be present. Subsequent interviews and medical operations must be conducted as soon as possible after a Level II test.

Description: SCP-XXXX-1 is a mahogany pneumatic player piano missing a visible serial number or manufacturer's seal. Carbon dating of the wood paneling reveals that it was created in the mid-1930s. Gash marks have been observed in the side of the piano, which had hastily been sealed with wood glue. Additionally, electronic air pumps were installed on the pedals so it can be operated remotely without additional personnel. A removable music reel is present in the piano.

When SCP-XXXX is played repeatedly within earshot of any individual, the way that individual acts afterward is effected to varying levels. The effect does not have a discernible pattern, but it appears that some individuals are controlled by or connected to SCP-XXXX. However, SCP-XXXX itself does not appear to be sentient, rather it alters other sentient individuals nearby to be sentient for the sake

SCP-XXXX was recovered by MTF Era-11 ("Savage Beasts") after an 8-year-old girl was found mutilating her younger cousin while playing the piano. Amnestics were administered to the family, who now do not remember the existence of the children or the events pertaining to them. The family was terminated as they were still contaminated by SCP-XXXX post-amnesia.
