Notes & Reviews:

Atoll is proud to present Tsenka Dianova, considered to be the greatest exponent of prepared piano. The title Deconstruction started just as the name of a sound-recycling piece, written to "unprepare" the piano following Cage's "Perilous Night." Later, the word inspired the idea of a collection of "deconstructed" works of Satie and Cage - works reinvented by unusual means!
