Silent Hill is a survival horror video game for PlayStation. This game is based on a character, Harry Mason, who searches for his missing adopted daughter in the town of Silent Hill. You can complete the game in 5 different ways. In Silent Hill, the Piano Riddle is the second riddle in Midwich Elementary School and needs to be solved in order to continue playing.
Part 1 of 3: locate the piano
Step 1. Go to Midwich Elementary School
Go to the 2nd floor of Midwich Elementary School.
Step 2. Enter the Music Room
The music room is located near the toilets and in the same corridor as the changing rooms.
You should find the music room easily using Harry Mason's map
Part 2 of 3: finding the clues
Step 1. Look at the table
Once in the music room, look at the blackboard. You will find a piece of white paper stained with blood stuck on the board.
Step 2. Examine the piece of paper
On paper, you will be able to read the inscription a tale of speechless birds (a tale of birds without a voice).
Step 3. Head over to the piano and examine it
You may find that you can only play notes of one octave and that when you try to play the other notes some do not produce a tone.
Part 3 of 3: solve the puzzle
Step 1. Remember the piece of paper
On the piece of paper it is written: "a tale of speechless birds". This means that you will only be able to solve this riddle by pressing the piano keys which do not produce any sound.
Step 2. Play D on the 2nd white key of the piano
In the first stanza of the riddle, you can read that the pelican is in a hurry to get his reward, which suggests that he is not going to fly very far. Another clue mentions white wings in reference to the pelican which is white. This indicates that you should play the closest white key not producing a tone on the piano keyboard, that note is a D.
Step 3. Press the 6th white button, the A
In the 2nd verse of the riddle, it is said that the 2nd bird, a dove, flew as far as possible. The 7th key of the piano, however, produces a tone. Since the dove is white, you should look for the farthest white key, but not producing a sound. This is the la.
Step 4. Press the 5th black key, the sib
In the 3rd stanza of the riddle, it is written that the 3rd bird, a crow, flew higher than the dove. We already know that the crow is black, and the dove landed on the last mute white key. The raven therefore indicates the farthest black key, the sib.
Step 5. Press the 5th white button, the ground
In the 4th verse of the riddle, it is specified that the 4th bird, a swan, is seated next to another bird. We also know that the swan is white, which suggests that it is a white touch. There is now only one free mute key placed next to another mute key. This is the 5th white key, placed next to the 6th white key, where the dove is located.
Step 6. Press the 1st black key, the C #
In the 5th verse of the riddle, it is said that the 5th bird, a crow, stops quickly. We know that a crow is black and if it stops quickly it hasn't gotten far, more or less like the pelican. It is therefore the 1st black key, C #, which is the mute key closest to the left.
- Before solving this riddle, you must first solve the riddle of old man's hand. If you have not solved the riddle with the old man's hand, the piano will be locked and you will not be able to solve this riddle.
- The birds all start to fly from the left side of the piano keyboard, which means you should always count the keys starting from the left.
