Limited edition of 200 copies. beet5 takes Beethoven’s Fifth Piano Concerto as its starting point. The slow movement was recorded using a special turntable for the blind that plays back records at quarter speed. I had an old recording of the piece lying around; I forget who the pianist was. The slowed down version was very striking, recognisable as Beethoven’s music but much sadder, more fragile. I developed a piece around this, using my usual array of synthesized sounds, field recordings, ‘borrowed’ and improvised stuff, etc., and performed this one direct to disk, which is the version presented here. I tried to continue refining the piece, working it towards true ‘installation’ status, but it didn’t really come together. Eventually I abandoned the project.
