It represents a threshold between the private and the public, the interior and exterior, providing a space in which the musician will eat, sleep and spend the whole day at the piano, playing a repertoire from John Cage, Morton Feldman and Louis Couperin - artists whose emphasis was on the moment and who deliberately dispensed with development.
