  Work Details  
  Bacchanale is Cages first work for prepared piano. He intended to write a piece for percussion ensemble, but the performance hall being too small, he started experimenting with objects inside the piano. The preparations are quite simple: weather-stripping, pieces of rubber, screws and bolts, placed between the strings.
