The synopsis of Frigyes Karinthy's 1916 Sci-fi novella Voyage to Faremido Reads:
“A planet peopled by Machines who regard organic life as a disease. Gulliver is held on trial as a representative of the most corrupt disease in the universe - the disease of humanity.”
These machines speak in Sol Re Sol, a universal language designed by Francois Sudre. It was designed so that is can be communicated through seven units of anything to enable all people to use it regardless of ability, as it can be adapted to use any of the senses.
Near the beginning of the novella Gulliver first encounters the language, and slowly begins to interpret and understand it, finally communicating with the machines of Faremido. Sol Do Sol is a translation of these three pages of Voyage to Faremido into Sol Re Sol, attempting to use the language broadly, speculating on different ways it could be communicated.
