BOLLETER, ROSS: Night Kitchen, an hour of ruined piano
Ross’s speciality is ruined pianos. He goes around Australia finding and playing, recording and sometimes collecting them. There were 5 in his kitchen for these recordings, which were made at night - when it’s quiet. These are exquisite sounds, only the complexity of the world and time can create, weathered and marinated in decades of exposure to extreme conditions: heat, cold, downpour, dust and insect life. It’s like sitting up all night in a room with the Loa.
