Variations on Ode to Joy for a Prepared Piano

Piano is a great musical instrument. It produces beautiful sounds, if played by an elegant pianist. It can also serve as a beautiful piece of furniture display.

Some performing artists made a hole on a grand piano. They walk inside it, dragging it along. They play it “inside out”… imagine the keyboards in reversed order.

This is a performance called “Stop, Repair, Prepare: Variations on Ode to Joy for a Prepared Piano.”
