The Tridecadal Korean

  • Mood:

Chopsticks?  Woodblocks!

From the Wikipedia article on Piano Sonata No. 2 by Charles Ives ]:

… The piece demonstrates Ives' experimental tendencies well: much of it is written without barlines, the harmonies are advanced, and in the second movement, there is a cluster chord created by depressing the piano's keys with a 14 3/4 inch long piece of wood.
