In Socks and Ties and Unison.

Nam June Paik - Piano Piece (1993)


Hot Chip - My Piano (mp3): The fire alarm in the hall is pulsing as this song plays. The rigidly piercing rhythm occasionally rests its coy pause on the first beat and chimes in perfectly on the last three notes of the bar. And the dissonance takes a momentary break to dance. The song reminds me of impromptu dance parties in the hall anyway, in socks and ties and unison.
