    The five tones from 'Close Encounters Of The Third Kind'


    Anyone know where I can hear a sample of the five tones? You know the ones - "If everything's ready on the dark side of the moon, play the five tones" - PARP, PARP, PARP, PARP, PARP! smile

    Cheers

    rent the film? work out the melody on a keyboard?

    sorry if thats not too helpful! FreeSound doesn't actually have copyrighted samples on it - only 100% original or public domain, I think.

    Ah, very simular sounding instrument smile. I think the last note is off... is that intentional? Maybe in the original the notes change register/instrument and that makes alot of difference?

    the last two notes are off... but darned close.

    I think you start with D -
    then up major 2nd to E
    down major 3rd to C
    down an octave to a lower C
    then up a fifth to G maybe... I give up... I've got work to do...

    Good grief, yes that 4th note is not what I intended! It should be a musical third below what I used, i.e. a G instead of B.

    Dunno what's wrong with the last note, sounds OK to me, if a trifle short.

    I'll try again
