There seem to have been some knee
jerk reactions of late to a few of my
annotations on the Bakery, so I thought,
why not set these to music?... and what
could be more appropriate for this
purpose than a knee jerk musical
Enter the Kneejerk Piano.
The human knee is perfectly
acting as a replacement for the
conventional hammer/striker apparatus
that acts as the interface between the
keys and the strings on a piano.
There are no particular advantages to the
Kneejerk Piano. I just think it would be a
worthwhile spectacle to witness a serious
musician playing a particularly
challenging piece as an array of hammers
struck at the bare knees along a line of
seated figures - each blow eliciting a
note as the jerking feet arced up in turn
to strike against the stretched strings.
