    The Infinity Concerto by Greg Bear

Michael Perrin is an aspiring poet, struggling to express the chaotic cadences of his thoughts on paper. The maestro’s greatest piece, however, was performed in front of a live audience only once. Waltiri’s composition is a song of power. Never meant to be heard by human ears, its melody is as captivating as a siren’s call; its notes ring out like a death knell; and its rhythms shake the very foundations of reality.
