“Deconstructed Piano” is a short time-lapse video by Austrian filmmaker Laurin Döpfner in which a small wooden piano is burned to the ground by two heat guns, set to “Moonlight Sonata” by Beethoven.
The Sonata represents the agony and grief suffered by the piano. For this performance two heat guns at a temperature of 650°C work the piano’s wood on and on to the point of collapse.
All told, the controlled burn took eight hours to complete.
