Temporal Altissimo

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Thaumiel

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is located at Site-28, held inside a steel vault. This vault is to be secured with an eye identification lock and a voice recognition password.

Dr. ██████, titled SCP-XXXX-1, is the assigned player and sole researcher of SCP-XXXX. No other researcher is permitted to experiment with SCP-XXXX to prevent the possible creation of another SCP-XXXX-1, the fabrication of a time paradox, or any other temporal-related anomaly.

In the event that another SCP-XXXX-1 is created, MTF Lambda-5 is designated to carry out procedure "Ostinato Assault" as soon as possible (See document ME-6).

Description: SCP-XXXX is similar in brand to a ██████████ Alto Saxophone. The saxophone has a lacquered bronze body and brass mechanisms. The neck is connected directly to the body, even when loosening the screw to an adequate amount for when the neck should come off. The ebonite1 mouthpiece is also inseparable from the cork it is pushed on to. The brass ligature follows suit, being inextricable from the mouthpiece as well as the synthetic reed attached to the mouthpiece. The reed is made from an unknown, however extremely long-lasting and well-built material for a saxophone reed. Tests show the saxophone possesses no anomalous properties by itself.


SCP-XXXX's properties manifest when Dr. ██████ (SCP-XXXX-1) plays any altissimo note or any note considered to be past the regular fingering scale. This first starts on an altissimo G, which is approximately one half step above the highest note of the regular fingering for alto saxophone. after holding this note for at least four beats (a whole note in musical terms) SCP-XXXX-1 (the player, or Dr. ██████, in this instance) is transported to the date June 27th, 1847 between the hours of 4:00 and 5:00 in the Bortier Gallery in Brussels, Belgium.
