Item #: SCP-952
일련번호: SCP-952

Object Class: Keter
등급: 케테르(Keter)

Special Containment Procedures: Musical projects under the effects of SCP-952 are to be terminated by any means possible, and any physical media storing recordings of SCP-952-influenced music are to be copied onto a Standardized Type-C antimemetic storage device, then destroyed. Venues that have hosted SCP-952-infected musicians are to be closed until such a point when it can be confirmed that none of the staff are affected.
특수 격리 절차: SCP-952에 영향을 받은 음악 프로젝트는 모든 수단을 동원해 처분하며, SCP-952에 영향을 받은 음악의 물리적 미디어 보관 기록은 표준 C형 항밈 보관 장치에 복사한 뒤 파괴한다. SCP-952 감염 음악가가 자리했던 공연 장소는 직원 중 누구도 영향을 받지 않은 것으로 확인될 때까지 폐쇄한다.

Development of a countermemetic agent to combat SCP-952 is underway. Until its completion, all individuals affected by SCP-952 are to be detained.
SCP-952를 방지하기 위한 반밈 인자 개발이 진행 중이다. 개발이 완료되기 전까지, SCP-952에 영향 받은 모든 인원은 구금된다.

As a precaution, Foundation agents in the music industry should seek to discredit "math rock" as a genre, until such a time when SCP-952 is fully contained. Relevant personnel should refer to Document 952-32 for more details.
예방책으로서, SCP-952가 완전히 격리되는 시점까지 음악 산업에 파견된 재단 요원들은 "매스 록(math rock)"이라는 장르의 신빙성을 떨어트리려고 해야 한다. 관련 인원은 자세한 사항을 확인하기 위해 문서 952-32를 참조할 것.

Description: SCP-952 is an anomalous subgenre of math rock known as "NP Rock", defined primarily by a specific arrangement of instrumental configurations, subject matter, and esoteric musical technique. Evidence suggests that the culmination of these components is the cause of SCP-952's anomalous properties.
SCP-952는 "NP 록"이라고 알려진 매스 록(math rock)의 변칙적인 하위 장르로 주로 악기 구성의 특정한 배열, 주제, 난해한 연주 기법을 통해 정의된다. 증거에 따르면 이러한 요소들의 최고조[???]가 SCP-952의 변칙성의 원인이다.

Upon listening to an SCP-952 composition, subjects will instantly identify SCP-952 as a distinctive musical genre. Furthermore, periodic listening (defined by listening to at least one composition per day) creates further anomalous effects:
SCP-952의 곡을 들으면 피험자는 즉시 SCP-952를 독특한 음악 장으로 여기게 된다. 또한 주기적으로 듣는다면 (하루에 최소 한 곡을 듣는 것으로 정의) 추가적인 변칙적 영향을 나타낸다.

  • Following 1 week of periodic listening, subjects with musical experience learn how to recreate SCP-952 compositions.
  • 주기적으로 들은 뒤 1주일이 지나면 음악에 경험이 있는 피험자는 SCP-952 곡을 재현하는 법을 익힌다.
  • After 4 weeks of periodic listening, subjects with musical experience will find themselves unable to perform any musical piece outside of SCP-952.
  • 주기적으로 들은 뒤 4주일이면 음악에 경험이 있는 피험자는 SCP-952 외의 모든 음악 작품을 연주할 수 없게 된다.
  • From week 4 onward, subjects undergo significant changes in personality. Such changes differ between subjects; however, in all cases, it's been observed that existing romantic relationships become completely untenable.
  • 4주일 이후, 피험자는 인격에 상당한 변화를 겪는다. 변화는 피험자마다 다르지만, 모든 경우에서 기존 연애 관계가 완전히 지속 불가능하게 되는 것이 관찰되었다.
  • From week 12 onward, listening to any non-SCP-952 composition produces marked distress in subjects.
  • 12주일 이후, 비SCP-952 곡을 듣는 것은 피험자에게 상당한 괴로움을 유발한다.

The earliest known instance of SCP-952 appears to have been Highway Ash1, an album released by a band known as "House of Spades" in 20██. As of 09/28/20██, it's estimated that at least ████ SCP-952 compositions remain uncontained.
SCP-952가 최초로 알려진 사례는 20██년 "하우스 오브 스페이드(House of Spades)"라고 알려진 밴드가 발매한 앨범 Highway Ash2이다. 20██/09/28 현재, 최소 ████개의 SCP-952 곡이 비격리 상태인 것으로 추정된다.

Interview Log [952-01]:
면담 기록 [952-01]:

Interviewed: Veronica Fitzroy
피면담자: 베로니카 피츠로이(Veronica Fitzroy)

Interviewer: Agent Hae
면담자: 해 요원

Foreword: Ms. Fitzroy, who played drums for House of Spades, maintained a public presence following its break-up, the only member to do so. The Foundation contacted her for an interview, under the guise that she would be speaking to a Pitchfork columnist.
서문: 피츠로이 양은 하우스 오브 스페이드에서 드럼을 연주했으며, 해체 후에도 대중에 존재를 들어낸 유일한 구성원이다. 재단은 피치포크 칼럼니스트와 이야기할 것이라는 미명 하에 그녀와 접촉해 면담을 수행했다.

<Begin Log>
<기록 시작>

Agent Hae: Good morning, Ms. Fitzroy.
해 요원: 좋은 아침입니다, 피츠로이 양.

Fitzroy: Please, Margaret, call me Veronica. Ms. Fitzroy was the long dead historical occult figure whose last name I stole…
피츠로이: 저기, 마가렛, 베로니카라고 불러주세요. 피츠로이 양은 제가 성을 도용한 오래 전에 죽은 역사 속 오컬트 관련 사람이에요…

(7 second silence)
(7초간 정적)

Fitzroy:… too wordy? Eh, Izzy3 was the lyricist. But nah, Veronica's good.
피츠로이: …말이 너무 많았나요? 음, 이지4가 작사가였죠. 하지만 뭐, 베로니카면 좋아요.

Agent Hae: Very well, mi-Veronica, apologies. Well, to start off, I actually wanted to talk about your work in House of Spades. I've listened and I have to say, I'm impressed. It's not like anything out there, at least from the "out there" I've heard.
해 요원: 괜찮습니다, 피-베로니카, 죄송합니다. 뭐, 우선, 저는 사실 하우스 오브 스페이드에서의 작품에 대해서 얘기하고 싶습니다. 들어봤고 말하자면, 인상 깊었습니다. 다른 것들과 전혀 다르더군요, 적어도 제가 들어본 "다른 것"과는요.

Fitzroy: Huh, thank you. Yeah, that was probably some of my best work, there. Got a favorite? Self Titled? Highway Ash? David Cameron Fucked a Dead Pig?
피츠로이: 허, 고마워요. 네, 그게 지금까지 중 최고의 작품일 겁니다. 좋아하시는 거 있나요? Self Titled? Highway Ash? David Cameron Fucked a Dead Pig?

Agent Hae: As much as I'd love to discuss how you came up with… that, I have to say that I'm most interested in discussing the engineering work you performed on Highway Ash.
해 요원: 당신이 어떻게 생각해 냈는지 이야기하고 싶을 정도죠, 그… 전 우선 Highway Ash에서 한 공학 작업에 대해서 이야기하고 싶네요.

Fitzroy: Heh, nerd. Yeah, no, that was a ton of fun, but I can't really be taking all the credit for that. Jack5 was pretty much the eyes to my hands, and vice versa. Izzy helped, too, and Sara6 had her moments of useful idiocy. But it was mostly just us two. Easier that way.
피츠로이: 하, 이상한 사람이네요. 네, 아뇨, 그건 정말 유쾌한 작업이었죠, 다만 작품의 기여자부터 얘기해야겠네요. 잭7은 사실상 제 손의 눈이었고, 저도 마찬가지였죠. 이지도 도와줬고, 사라8는 쓸만한 바보짓을 했었죠. 그래도 대부분은 저희 둘이 작업했죠. 그쪽이 쉬우니까요.

Agent Hae: Even so, it's magical. I know Spades has been pigeonholed into "math rock", but it truly feels like something else.
해 요원: 그렇다고해도, 이건 정말 대단합니다. 스페이드가 "매스 록"으로 분류된다는 건 알지만, 이건 정말 다른 무언가 같습니다.

Fitzroy: Oh, yeah, that was deliberate. Not even mad everyone ended up copying us. Starting a new genre of music's always fun, 'specially when I get to name it something stupid, like "NP rock".
피츠로이: 아, 네, 의도된 것이죠. 다들 우릴 배껴도 별로 화도 안 났어요. 음악의 새 장르를 여는 건 항상 즐거운 법이니까요. 특히 제가 이름을 이상하게 지었을 때는 더 그렇죠, "NP 록"처럼요.

Agent Hae: It certainly is an interesting choice of name. You don't mind if I ask you why, do you?
해 요원: 확실히 흥미로운 이름이네요. 왜 그렇게 선택했는지 물어봐도 될까요?

Fitzroy: Okay, so, you know how P doesn't equal NP?
피츠로이: 네, 그럼, 왜 P가 NP와 다른지 아시나요?

Agent Hae: Correct.
해 요원: [???]

Fitzroy: (Brief pause) NP rock wasn't some spur-of-the-moment bullshit. It took careful planning and consideration, especially on the part of me and Jack. You ever try making a sound that doesn't exist?
피츠로이: (잠시 멈춤) NP 록은 그냥 막 던진 헛소리가 아니에요. 세심하게 계획되고 고려된 거죠, 특히 저와 잭 파트는요. 존재하지 않는 소리를 만드려고 해본적 있으세요?

Agent Hae: I'm… you know, I'm sure everyone has, at some point.
해 요원: 전… 글쎄요, 누구나 한 번쯤은 해봤을 겁니다.

Fitzroy: Hard as fuck, yeah. Brain isn't wired to say nonsense like [COGNITOHAZARD REDACTED], or whatever. Means what NP Rock is isn't easy to define. But it's easy to verify, once you hear it. Moreover, it's easy to copy… I mean, that's the whole intention, anyway. I wanted to shake up a genre that's been stagnating since TTNG.
피츠로이: 좆같이 어렵죠, 네. 뇌는 [인식재해 편집됨] 같은 헛소릴할만큼 이상하지 않죠. 즉 NP 록이 뭔지 정의하기는 쉽지 않다는 겁니다. 하지만 구분하기는 쉽죠, 한 번 듣기만 하면요. 거기에 배끼기도 쉽고요… 그러니까 전부 의도라는 겁니다. 전 TTNG 이후로 침체되고 있는 장르를 뒤흔들고 싶었거든요.

Agent Hae: Ah. Well, you've certainly revolutionized-
해 요원: 어. 네, 확실히 혁신을 이르키셨-

Fitzroy: It was more… sabotage, I'd say.
피츠로이: 그보단… 사보타주라고 할 수 있죠.

Agent Hae: … I beg your pardon?
해 요원: …죄송하지만 뭐라고하셨죠?

Fitzroy: I don't know what Jack was thinking when he first floated the idea, probably something stupid. Weed plans tend to be stupid. But, again, I really only had one plan in mind: I wanted to turn the genre into a depressing sinkhole. With it, I wanted to take any joy Sara ever had, and crush it under my boots.
피츠로이: 전 잭이 처음 이 아이디어를 냈을 때 뭔 생각이었는지 모르지만, 아마 뭐 멍청한 생각이나 하고 있었겠죠. 잡초 계획[즉흥 계획???]은 멍청하기 마련이니까요. 하지만, 전 염두에 두던 계획 단 한 개가 있었죠. 전 장르를 우울함의 싱크홀로 만들고 싶었어요. 그걸로, 전 사라의 모든 즐거움을 빼았고 제가 밟아 박살내고 싶었죠.

(Agent Hae attempts to say something, but is interrupted by Fitzroy)
(해 요원이 무언가 말하려고 하지만 피츠로이가 먼저 말한다)

Fitzroy: Sara only ever had two things: music, and a flighty, hedonistic shitbag of a girlfriend. Between cutting her fingers off and ruining math rock, well, one would land me in jail, and the other puts me up there with Mike Kinsella and Zach Hill. Sorta wished Izzy would've offed herself first, but I guess watching her become Brinegash9 is as good a consolation prize as any.
피츠로이: 사라에겐 딱 2가지 밖에 없었죠. 음악, 그리고 변덕맞고 쾌락주의자인 쓰레기 여자친구. 사라의 손가락을 짜르거나 매스 록을 망하게 만들거나였죠, 뭐, 하나는 감옥에 들어가야하고 다른 건 절 마이크 킨셀라와 재크 힐의 경지에 오르게 해줄 거였죠. 이지가 먼저 떠났으면 좋았겠지만, 걔가 브라인가쉬Brinegash10가 되는 걸 보는게 무엇보다 좋은 위로상이었죠.

Agent Hae: I… forgive me, that's an awful thing to say about someone. Moreover, I'm… not certain what this has to do with Sara's relationships.
해 요원: 저… 죄송합니다만 누군가에 대해서 그렇게 이야기하는 건 좋지 않습니다. 그리고… 그게 사라와의 관계와 무슨 연관인지 모르겠습니다.

Fitzroy: Sis, you can't be giving scores to a genre you don't get. The whole fucking genre's a testament to the inability of hipster nerds to hold down a date. Just listen to Wayne Szalinski, or Polvo, or TTNG, or [COGNITOHAZARD REDACTED], or even just fucking Kinsella singing in whatever shower that stupid house probably never had. Surround yourself in misery and that's what you get. Even better when the misery's syncopated to the beat of a soul.
피츠로이:

Agent Hae: I apologize, but "the beat of a soul" feels somewhat loaded. Care to unpack what you mean?
해 요원:

Fitzroy: Sure! First question from me, though: Do you people always play dumb?
피츠로이:

Agent Hae: … Excuse me?
해 요원:

Fitzroy: It's a serious question. Every soul operates on a similar frequency. The key's reaching out on what that frequency is, and right now, you're blaring out at narc cycles per second.
피츠로이:

Agent Hae: I… listen, I'm not sure what you-
해 요원:

Fitzroy: You somehow know jack shit about NP rock despite listening to it, agreed with my statement about P and NP despite no public proof11, and most importantly, Pitchfork hasn't given a shit about me since they gave my solo album a 2.6. You're either some government occult coalition g-man, in which case holy fuck you're bad at this, or one of Brinegash's girls, which is fucking rich considering that killing me won't bring back Sara, and I'd know, cause Ashy's still dead!
피츠로이:

Agent Hae: Ma'am? Are you okay?
해 요원:

Fitzroy: Is that what this is about? Are you just… checking up on me?… Heh, well. Tell Izzy she won. She fucking won, after all these years. I'm a miserable ██████ hag who threw away her shot at a happy life for the sake of petty revenge. But guess what? Sara's still dead, and Izzy will never tune a bass outside [REDACTED] again. So how's that?!
피츠로이:

(A loud crashing sound can be heard, which Agent Hae reports came from Fitzroy flinging a vase at the wall behind her. Several seconds of silence follow, before Fitzroy settles back into her chair.)

Fitzroy: My manifesto's in my bedroom, and my will's on the kitchen counter. It's been a pleasure, man. ████ ███ ██ ███ ████ █████.
피츠로이:

<End Log>

Closing Statement: Immediately following the conclusion of the interview, Fitzroy pulled a revolver from under her cushion and shot herself through the temple. As of ██/██/20██, Ms. Fitzroy's will has been declassified.

Document 952-02:
문서 952-02:

I, Veronica Katherine Fitzroy, being of sound body and a sound enough mind to execute my own damn will, as witnessed by Brad Cameron and The Man in Bandages12 (both of whom can deal with the legal bullshit later), declare the division of my estate as follows.

To the Jack of Spades, who knows who he is, and to Madam Brinegash, who also knows who she is, I bequeath the Soul of Sara ██████ ███████. Have fun fighting that out, you bottom-feeding parasites.

Also to the Jack of Spades, who, once again, knows who he is, I bequeath ownership of my share of House of Spade's royalties for all associated albums and EPs except Self Titled, which was hack guitar work and you absolutely know it. Consider it thanks for helping me program the logistics of Highway Ash knowing full well you'd never get your disgusting squid dick wet again.

To Ana ███████, I bequeath a copy of Confronting Drunk Driving by H. Lawrence Ross. If you're anything like your sister, I'd read it page to page.

To the Goddess of Cider, who holds my beloved Ashy, I bequeath my soul, knowing full well it won't make the journey.

And finally, to Brad Cameron, I bequeath everything else. You truly were the best among us, and I'm sorry for booting you from engineering for the sake of a three-year suicide.
