INT. LIVING ROOM. DISTANT FUTURE.
HELIX and RION are sitting at a table, studying and eating junk food. Their surroundings clearly indicate that this is the future. Everything is beyond modern. But they are teenagers, so it’s still a total mess.
RION: It was just paper?
RION: I don’t get it.
RION: Didn’t it get ripped all the time?
HELIX: No, it was like—strong paper.
RION: Paper is so easy to rip though.
HELIX: Maybe it was cloth.
RION: You just said it was paper.
HELIX: It was some kind of paper made of thread.
RION: But what if it got wet? Paper just like, dissolves.
HELIX: It was really strong paper!
RION: But that doesn’t—
HELIX: Whatever! The point is, that’s what people used to buy shit.
RION: Huh. How would you know how much paper to hand over to get something?
HELIX: It had numbers printed on it.
RION: That seems stupid. Couldn’t you just like, change the numbers?
HELIX: No. Well, actually maybe. I don’t know.
RION: Yeah see, there is no way money was just paper. There must’ve at least been a microchip in it or something.
HELIX: No, that’s what I’m telling you. It was just paper.
RION: But how did society even function? If you could get anything for paper, how did that even work? How would you prove it’s your paper?
HELIX: I think people –
RION: Couldn’t someone just like, take it out of your hand? And now it’s their paper? Were people running around killing each other for pieces of paper?
HELIX: Yes they totally were! And there were these things called banks—like not a banking company, but like, a physical place called a ‘bank’ with safes and locks that held the money.
RION: You’re telling me there were buildings, actual buildings, just full of paper? That people guarded with guns and locks?
HELIX: I’m serious.
RION: Shit. (beat) Glad I wasn't around.
Another finished piece done strictly with Muro, to test the app out a few years ago. Couldn't tell you how long it took, apparently I didn't take note at the time. Oops. :)
You may not have heard
But you’ll never forget
The terrifying tale of
A most murderous duet
Now, it may cause a fright
Made this for a movie I'm working on, figured you guys could use it as well! (I wish that was me playing. I cheated and used MIDI. But then I made it sound real, so that's something!) It's in the public domain.
This piece is beautiful. I freaking love it.
that one kiss meant goodbye or goodnight,
i pray it's the latter and know i'm not right.
Now that I know the secrets of above
I miss the mystery of below
