The ringing of bells as a means of remembrance is manifested through various pianistic guises, with the grand piano functioning as an "ear" that allows everything that is played to resonate. Half-remembered quotations emerge distorted by temporal distance and through the piano’s preparation. Acoustic and emotional echoes converge and intermingle.
