A musician has his days, or he has not. There are times when a musician simply has to live in his tunes, in his harmonic world of music. Nothing else could be its substitute, neither a day of fortune nor a day of bliss.
It is the very need of his soul, a life force that has to be triggered, else it will fail him for good.
So one day, the musician and his pet panda decided to replenish the life force that surrounds their very existence. This was on the Friday, 2nd of February 2006. They went into the chamber of harmonics, where instruments of life-giving mana were prepared for other users. They then settled for a classic Clavinova where the panda proceeded to render a heartwarming Pachabel’s Canon in D Major (which, incidently, is not the same as Pachabel’s Canon in D). Halfway through, a disharmonic high-pitched ringing suddenly blasted through the chamber, disorienting the musician, his pet panda and all other users of the Chamber of Harmonics. Lost and confused, all users were to disengage on whatever they were doing and make their way outside the Chamber, only to find a whole crowd of people from other sectors of life gathered into one vicinity.
Alas, the musician and his pet panda attracted unwanted attention, since it was highly improbable to tame a panda, let alone own one, for this one was a honourary panda indeed. Weeding through the crowd, the musician and his pet panda decided that the day wasn’t made for life-regenerating purposes, and agreed that it will have to be postponed to another day since waiting half-an-hour for the intolerable mind-numbing screech to wade off seemed an almost impossible task.
As they walked on the stretch that leads home, the musician and his pet panda hummed Lee Hom’s Kiss Goodbye, for it would have to be sufficient to keep their lives going on while waiting for the sun to set beyond the horizon, as if bading farewell to yet another day in its infinite lifetime.
