  Work Details  
  originally recorded to accompany a Cunningham dance performance. Here Paik plays a de-tuned piano in a manner strongly reminiscent of Cages piano preparations in tone, though less percussive in attack. Dramatic dynamics and a kind of mock-virtuoso, almost Lisztian touch at the keyboard also distinguish this from Cages drier and more restrained use of the instrument. Accessed 08.04.2007 from
