The piano tuning Chantal Dumas

English translation of text: Fortner Anderson. A piano being tuned, an apartment and each of its rooms heard by way of their acoustics. A story is being written, and things happen there that one would not encounter elsewhere. The Piano Tuning speaks of attentive listening all the while making one hear the space of the premises.
