Peter Miller writes about Music & MEND™ on Facebook
Music gets to us in ways that words can only hint at. Its harmonies and dissonances, nuances of dynamic ebbs and flows, its mixed emotions, its reflection of the grandeur and grain of human experience — these qualities of music transport us into an ecstasy like no other. Those sounds reverberate to the same frequencies that animate the spiraling of galaxies and the genetic dance that creates our individual identities.
At the same time, the mystery of our existence, where we came from, how we got here, where we’re going, intrigues us beyond our ability to comprehend. Some see themselves as instruments of a Higher Being, or predestined to follow the paths of their ancestors. For others, the notion of a calling defines their quest for meaning. But if no one’s calling, we try to shape our own destiny.
What if there is a hidden purpose to our existence? And what if that purpose is hidden in the harmonies and dissonances of music? That is the genesis of composer Mardi-Ellen Hill’s story of a dynasty that has secretly controlled the world for centuries. Woven into the very fabric of the family’s DNA is a code embedded in music, which the chance hearing of a song confides to the heroine.
Not only a story set to music, this is also a computer game where participants can act out the roles and create new experiences that change the outcome for themselves. Hill calls it MEND, Musical Encode/Decode, which in her orchestration mixes virtual reality and real-life experience in a startlingly new way. Like the first talking movies that brought audiences into seemingly intimate contact with stars, this integrated story / music / game / technology of Mardi-Ellen Hill’s will create a shock of recognition — because it is the way we live now.

The Companion Book from the Universe of MEND™ – The Skeleton Score, Prologue II
“…Possessed. The pilot is overcome. Clearly his mind is not functioning properly.
Short circuiting perhaps for an instant, that was it – too simple an explanation. His husky voice is running rampant in an inaccessible language. Seems he is trying to tell the entire universe something. His sound dances in the sky, throwing passengers to all sides of the plane. Wailing with superhuman strength, his message somehow possesses all of us.
What nut locks himself in on a short flight? And what of the co-pilot? No word from him. This odd woman, Lily, our heroine, talks the guy back to his senses. She claims it is her daughter’s new hit. Two tickets to Rachel Barrington’s opening NYC première will seal the deal.
Suddenly, the plane is back on course. Lily Barrington shivers at the bargain she makes. She must find the source of this deadly craze. A star’s hit song ascending could not mean death for all these passengers, or could it? Lily recognizes the key the pilot is reaching for – one that will expand the interstellar universe at a speed that would overtake any plane, and put the earth and all its inhabitants at great risk.
Wearing a frozen smile, the flight attendant slips Lily’s note to the pilot. Immediate silence. Everyone returns to their assigned seats. Chaos quells. Eyes close. Three minutes to D.C.; all souls fall asleep. A deep heart thumping slumber of relief encompasses us.
The plane lands safely at the gate. Everyone disperses. No one will remember the strange interlude pulsing through the limbs of our bodies until we all meet again. It is the price of Lily’s bargain.”
