Ruined piano

I introduce to you the WARPS – World Association for Ruined Piano Studies.
A piano is said to be Ruined (rather than Neglected or Devastated) when it has been abandoned to all weathers and has become a decaying box of unpredictable dongs, clicks and dedoomps, with not a single note (perhaps excepting D) sounding like one from an even-tempered upright piano.
Formed in 1991 by Stephen Scott (of Bowed Piano celebrity, and professor of music at Colorado Collage) and Ross Bolleter, the WARPS also sells CDs. Excerpts here and here.
Joking apart, I really like the sounds.
