Variation on a theme

piano planter in Colmar, France
What's a vacation without the requisite picture of a street musician? When we were in France this year, we didn't meet any musical characters but we did find a piano that looked like it had taken root, just off Colmar's busiest shopping street.

In fact Satie specifies just such a piano treatment for one of the gnossiennes (I'm leaving myself vulnerable here; not surprisingly the word isn't in the dictionary and I'm guessing at the spelling)

John Cage's prepared pianos come to mind for me!

The Gnossiennes are in Wikipedia - I just looked them up but have not listened yet (sleeping baby and all that).

Well, jeez, that is just the prettiest thing ever.
