Boomkat Product Review:
Marcel Duchamp's Musical Erratum stems back to 1913, and forms the basis of his artwork La Mariee Mise A Nu Par Ses Celibataires Meme (that's The Bride Stripped Bare By Her Batchelors to you and me). The piano piece is based around the central premise that the piano keys are played in a sequence determined by randomly selected numeric sequences, and is a wilfully awkward and clunky thing: A very useless performance, in any event." as Duchamp imself would have it. This disc includes two different versions of the piece: one standard interpretation (if that's an appropriate term) and one involving a prepared piano, which is actually far from useless, and makes for an interesting spin on the original also thrown into the bargain are a number of English language spoken word extracts (taking the form of lectures and readings) plus interviews with Duchamp himself.
