Item ###: SCP-###

Object Class:
Euclid

Special Containment Procedures:
SCP-### is to be placed upon a foam platform within a sound-proof room with no light source. Communication with SCP-### should be limited to simple questions. Prior to all communication attempts, SCP-### must be given a valid reason to why communication with it is needed, furthermore, SCP-### must be told of preferred responses, such as a telling SCP-### to generate a single unison buzz for a "yes", and two buzzes for a "no". If SCP-### does not respond to communication attempts and continues playing music, then it is to be left alone for at least 10 hours until another communication attempt is made.

Description:
SCP-### is a complex assortment of fourteen (Sentient) floppy disk drives (FFDs) and a single (Sentient) hard disk drive; all of which are interconnected and a part of a singular system. This system is found in a metallic office cabinet drawer. These floppy disk drives emit a small 'buzz' when moving their head sets. Each FFD is able to emit various pitches of the same 'buzz' sound; enabling the whole collection of FFDs to coordinate and play unique sounds. It is unknown how SCP-### can sense the world around it, as scans have failed to reveal any audio recorders or visual sensors.

SCP-### communicates in morse code; emitting a variety of buzzes of different lengths to convey a message as effectively it can. SCP-###s music ranges from simple jingles to complex symphonies that last several days. SCP-### undergoes periods of silence that last around an hour and a half; during this time, SCP-### shows complete cooperation whenever questioned. It is theorized that SCP-### synthesizes and coordinates it's music in this period of silence.

SCP-###'s music causes listeners to obtain technical know-how of late twentieth century electronic systems and equipment. Although it is unknown how SCP-###'s music is able to truly achieve this, it is speculated that the 'buzzing' sound that makes up the music SCP-### plays is a designed subliminal message that 'encrypts' information into listeners. Various tests and experiments have confirmed that SCP-###'s music is harmless, but nevertheless a cognitohazard that must be dealt with properly.


Addendum:
Prior to experiment, Class-D was instructed to repair a broken laptop; Class-D was unable to do so. Class-D was then released into SCP-###'s room during it's 'resting period''. Class-D was instructed to approach SCP-###. Class-D was then instructed to sit upon the floor, and stay silent. After approximately three minutes of silence from both SCP-### and the Class-D, SCP-### started playing a simple melody. Class-D continued to sit, with a confused facial expression. After four minutes of playing music, SCP-### ceased playing. Class-D was then escorted out of the containment chamber and questioned. Class-D was then given the same broken laptop, and instructed to fix it. Class-D wasted no time, and immediately started diagnosing the laptop. After approximately 30 minutes, Class-D was successful in repairing laptop and was escorted back to his cell.
