There are about 200 strings in a piano, each of which has a force of about 70 kg of tension on the harp and thus a total of about 14,000 kg. The piano hangs from its own strings that are only attached to the upper tuning pegs, so that the keys no longer touch the strings but the cast iron harp.
The piano turns into a kind of percussion instrument. A performance with the piano, hanging from its own strings, gives audible nuances in beats and a drum-like sound through its hammers with felt on the harp.
Opgelucht Gestemd can be loosely translated as Relieved and in tune or Relieved and in a good mood
Opgelucht Gestemd has also been shown at Galerie Oosterkade, Big Art, Atelierroute Amstelveen, among others.
