the piano and mr. tse Joshua Thorpe
the piano and mr. tse (1999)11:36
this piece is similar to work of maciunas, paik, and corner, except that rather than literally destroying or deconstructing an instrument, the material here comes entirely from a commonplace practice: the regulation of a piano who’s “touch” had become poor. the piano and mr. tse is the very-slightly-altered document of one instance of this process. the only changes i have made to the original recording are to edit out chatter and any tunes he played to test the touch.
