The Silent Hill Piano Puzzle is a must-have puzzle in Midwich Elementary School to progress through the story.
Part 1 of 3: Finding the piano
Step 1. Go to the second floor of Midwich Elementary School
Step 2. Enter the music cabinet
This office is located near the toilet, in the same corridor as the dressing room.
With Harry's map, you can easily find him
Part 2 of 3: Finding Clues
Step 1. Look at the board inside the music cabinet
You will see a large piece of bloody white paper taped to the board.
Step 2. Examine the piece of paper
You will receive a hint titled "A Story of a Bird Without a Voice."
Step 3. Walk up to the piano and examine it
You will immediately notice that you can only press keys in the first octave, and when you try to press other keys, some of them will not produce a sound.
Part 3 of 3: Solving the Puzzle
Step 1. Remember that the name of our tooltip is "A Story of a Bird Without a Voice."
This means that in this puzzle we will be pressing keys that do not make a sound.
Step 2. Play "D" or the second white key on the piano
The first line of the clue says that the Pelican is eager to get his prey - that is, he did not fly far - and also mentions white wings, a clue that the pelican has white wings. Therefore, the first note that you must press is the nearest white note that does not make a sound, that is, "D".
Step 3. Play "A" or the sixth white key on the piano
The second line says that the second bird, the pigeon, flew away as far as possible. However, the seventh note makes a sound, and since the dove is white, we automatically find the farthest white note without sound, which is "A".
Step 4. Play "B" or the fifth black key on the piano
The third line says that the third bird, the raven, flew higher than the dove. We already know that the raven is black and that the dove has landed on the last deaf white key, hence the raven will be the very last black key.
Step 5. Play "G" or the fifth white key on the piano
The fourth line says that the swan "sits" next to another bird. We also know that the swan is white, so this will be another white key. At this stage, there is only one deaf white key, which is next to another deaf key - this is the fifth key next to the sixth key, with a dove.
Step 6. Play "C" or the first black key on the piano
The fifth line says that the last bird, the crow, "quickly" stopped. We know that the crow is black, and a “quick” stop means that it has flown away not far, just like a pelican. Therefore, we need the first black key, since it is the closest deaf key to the left.
- Before doing this puzzle, you must complete the old man's hand puzzle. If you haven't completed the old man's hand puzzle yet, the piano will be closed and you won't be able to proceed further.
- All birds will begin to "fly" from the left, which means that all calculations must be performed from left to right.
