“Charlemagne Palestine’s Strumming Moosick (1974) features over 45 minutes of Palestine forcefully playing two notes in rapid alternation that slowly expand into clusters. He performed this on a nine-foot Bösendorfer grand piano with the sustain pedal depressed for the entire length of the work. As the moosick swells and the piano gradually detunes, the overtones build and the listener can hear a variety of timbres rarely produced by the piano.”
