In 1943, musician and composer John Cage developed the concept of a prepared piano. By putting al sorts of objects into the acoustic sound box or between the strings of a piano, he would hear the most extraordinary sounds.

Composer Hauschka also likes to change the sound of his piano. Do you want to know more about this strange but special instruments? Be sure to visit the Rotterdamse Schouwburg at 16:00 o’clock (an hour before Hauschka is kicking off his concert).
