An Overseer with a music box.

The Ancient Music is a book found in Dishonored, Dishonored: The Corroded Man, Dishonored 2 and Dishonored: Death of the Outsider.


[Excerpt from a longer work]

Throughout the natural world there are ripples that we can barely perceive with our sense, an Ancient Music permeating everything as a fundamental structural rule. Through it, you can work wonders without violating the natural world or begging favors from unfriendly spirits.

Throughout my studies I have found a 17 note scale derived from this phenomenon, and with the right equipment those notes allow for astonishing effects. Not the least of these is the ability to calm the turbulence originating in the Void which we attribute to the Outsider.
