  1. anyone can rip apart a beautiful piano as a lunitic and be creative- it was not enjoyable to me to see a piano get destroyed. IT WAS STUPID! and he cant play in the end -its like some stoner or drunk

  2. this is absolutely brilliant – musical, rhythmic, improvisational, atmospheric, DEconstructionist, inside & outside at the same time, serious, and completely looney tunes!! ____________ I love the squeaking of the baseplate screws around 3:50, with Jem’s casual glancing out at the audience ____________ everything about Jem’s “restoration” of this fine instrument back to its original condition is wonderful ____________ no mention of how this performance piece is mic’d, but the sound’s perfect!
