Album: Tuning
Author: Frans de Waard
Publication: Vital Weekly
Date: 3/1/1997

A record by an artist who calls himself 'DJ' is set to be a party going
object. The record opens with some tinkling on the piano... yeah get on
with it... where is the kick drum, the hi-hat. Get on. As you lift the
needle from the vinyl and place it somewhere else on either the a-side or
the b-side, you will find that this record is entirely built of sounds from
tuning the piano. Annoying to some, maybe casting memories to others like
me, where the piano at the elderly house was tuned twice a year. For
adventurous DJ's an exiting record, to be filled next to Ash's record
'Blind/Fragment' of intercepted talking between ground control and a pilot
up in the air. File under 'DJ Conceptualism'.
