Death of a Piano

1 The piano parts were salvaged from a local arts centre who were throwing away this old piano. With instructions to break it up and put it into the skip, the piano was thrown down the stairs. I recorded the sound of this act and thought of all the hundreds of people who would have played this instrument and the different tunes and memories embeddded within its components. I wanted to exhibit the piano and bring musicality back to the objects. Through the rhythmic suspending of the beaters and insides of the piano, the viewer can discern musical patterns and flows. This sound installation was exhibited in the Link Gallery, Manchester Art School.
