"Music is the cup that holds the wine of silence. Sound is that cup, but empty. Noise is that cup, but broken.”

Robert Fripp



Dedicated to Maurizio Kagel, "Etude N°9" for piano was created by Ligeti circa 1990, using chromatic scales to create a sensation of fall without end. Influenced by the works of Conlon Nancarrow for mechanical piano, he wanted "unplayable" arrangements.
"Vertige" (title of etude N°9) was transcribed for the Player Piano under the direction of Ligeti himself.

and played by the pianist Fredrik Ullen
