ALLORA AND CALZADILLA 2012

This structurally incomplete version of 'Ode to Joy' (the hole in the piano renders two full octaves inoperative) creates variations on the corporeal as well as sonic dimension of the player/instrument dynamic, the signature melody being played, and its pre-established connotations.
