Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX-1 and all instances of SCP-XXXX-2 to be stored in a secure containment locker in the E wing of Site-64. SCP-XXXX-2 instances are only to be removed from the locker for testing purposes.

Description: SCP-XXXX-1 is a 17-stringed koto made from Paulownia tomentosa wood measuring 182 centimeters in length. The ryūgaku is decorated with a floral pattern, while the ryūzetsu depicts a small village and is engraved with the kanji "樺原". SCP-XXXX-2 is the collective designation for ██ pieces of sheet music for koto written in Yamada notation.

When an instance of SCP-XXXX-2 is viewed, the viewer will begin to search for SCP-XXXX-1. The degree of this compulsion varies depending on the instance viewed. Copies of SCP-XXXX-2 do not preserve this anomalous effect.

When the viewer finds SCP-XXXX-1, they will begin to use it to play the SCP-XXXX-2 instance viewed. The SCP-XXXX-2 instance will be played within an error margin of 0.7%. If play is interrupted, the player will become distressed and attempt to resume by any means possible.

The player and all direct listeners will begin to perceive a scene dependent on the instance of SCP-XXXX-2 selected. The player and listeners can interact with objects within this scene, although these objects are not visible to indirect listeners. When SCP-XXXX-2 ends, the player and listeners will become unconscious for approximately ██ minutes. Selected SCP-XXXX-2 instances are listed below:
