RALPH ORTIZ – PIANO DESTRUCTION

Mr. Ortiz, a leader in the Destructivist Art Movement, demonstrates the power of axe as art, as he hacks to pieces a beautiful upright piano in an apartment in London. Great sounds as his axe comes down upon the keyboard. Two curators from the Tate Museum stand by observing and wisely commenting upon the progress of the piece as the chips fly past. This is a very funny program. Certainly surreal. Recorded in 1966.
