# Chaos in musician's program

This is a riddle in a form of rebus. The answer is an English noun, and the hint is in the title.

D#[]

Hint #1:

The musician is from the Europe

Hint #1A:

There's an alternative way of naming musical notes with sharps, commonly used in Europe

Hint #2:

He's a piano player, but writes his programs using a different kind of keyboard

Hint #2A:

The 'program' word is used very deliberately. The musician is also a PC-charmer

I'm mostly just putting together things other people have found, but I think the answer we're looking for is

DISARRAY

because

D sharp can be called "Dis", and [] in various programming languages indicates an array. The connection with the title is obvious.

• That's correct. – user45835 Feb 24 '18 at 1:51
• Can I mark more than one solution as an answer? – user45835 Feb 24 '18 at 1:52
• (i was going on the wrong track as i thought the answer was a musician, my bad at reading) – Quintec Feb 24 '18 at 1:52

Don't have the answer but I have some suggestions

I think pronouncing #=sharp would be too easy, maybe "hash" instead, that would be dash[], I think of "dashboard" but I don't see why []=board.
then I thought about something else, you say he uses a keyboard but not a piano keyboard, maybe a computer keyboard. In this case [] is the syntax for an array in some programming languages but I can't get anything in that direction :(

Édit

also D# is equivalent to Eflat (Eb), maybe search in that direction. In Europe D is ré and E is Mi (maybe it is only true for "Latin" country though). I found out that Mib is something related to networks, it seems there're 2 types of objects in MIB hierarchy: scalar and tabular, that would stick with the array

• You're correct with the keyboard and interpretation of [] part – user45835 Feb 24 '18 at 1:34
• @SolutusImmensus did an edit, maybe I found something else :) – Flying_whale Feb 24 '18 at 1:41
