February 24, 2008: Schiermonnikoog

I don't have much information about these huge pianos.

Quote:
Location: Schiermonnikoog
Dimension: 3 x 8 x 6 x 5 meters
Materials: wood
Assigned by: Internationaal Kamermuziek Festival Schiermonnikoog.
Evidently a music festival in the Netherlands, but why they needed all these giant pianos to celebrate/advertise it, I have no clue. Maybe one of our Dwellers, or Lurkers, in the Netherlands can enlighten us.

It's art



Sheldonrs  Sunday Feb 24 06:28 PM

Meh. I've seen organs bigger that those pianos.



Aliantha  Sunday Feb 24 06:29 PM

And did you get a chance to 'tinkle' on those huge organs?

It's fun...

I've seen an organ that fills half a cathedral room.


Aliantha  Monday Feb 25 04:57 AM

You'd need some super heavy duty lube for that wouldn't you.



SPUCK  Monday Feb 25 05:41 AM

No, but you would need a dolly and perhaps a crane.



Flint  Monday Feb 25 10:04 AM

Schiermonnikoog? Dingleshmootz.

Either that or hock up a spit ball the size of Lake Erie. :-)

Thanks for the link Linnepin. Those are good pictures.

This IotD reminds me of this:

The Piano



BizarreTees  Monday Feb 25 06:24 PM

Man. Paul Bunyan is going to be soooooo pissed that they wrecked his pianos.



xoxoxoBruce  Monday Feb 25 11:58 PM

I hope they recycle that lumber.



Gravdigr  Tuesday Feb 26 03:59 AM

Man, it would take a big penis to play one of those pianos. I mean pianist. Pianist, yeah.

Anyone wondering about Schiermonnikoog could have googled themselves here ofcourse: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schiermonnikoog , which says it a lot better than I could have. It's a tiny island off the coast of Frisia.

Grey Monk's Island is a fair translation though there is some debate about the skier (or schier in Dutch) actually referring to a color. Skier -does- translate to gray, but a more common way to refer to the color would have been griis or grijs.

Since it's not called Griismuntseach or Grijsmonnikoog, it might be good to think about the other (currently more common) uses of the word skier / schier in Frisian and Dutch. It also means either 'protruding piece of land that is only attached to the mainland on a single side' (i.e. peninsula) or 'type of landscape where erosion has removed all or most of the relief'. But the net doesn't have enough resources to see if that makes any sense, since I'm unable to find sufficiently old maps, if any exist at all.

This one is nice though:

Ofcourse, none of it has anything to do with the oversized grand piano's on the beach...

Greetings,

Are they playable? That would be awesome to play. You would have to walk across the keys though, of course.
