Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"These tracks (with two exceptions) were recorded at night, or at dawn at the latest. The four or five pianos occupy most of my kitchen, and are set up so that I can play them simultaneously.

Several improvisations were inspired by Goya's Black Paintings; others by the desert country of Central Australia, especially the area round Ngayurru (Lake Mackay) - imagined at midnight. Others still, were inspired by Vivienne Robertson's photographs.

RUINED PIANOS

A piano is said toe be Ruined (rather than Neglected or Devastated) when it has been abandoned to all weathers andhas become a decaying box of unpredictable dongs, clicks and dedoomops, with not a single note (perhaps excepting D) sounding like one from an even-tempered upright piano. [...]"-Ross Bolleter, from the liner notes
