Here's a story to amuse some and to outrage others. So far as I know, none of the instruments are extant.




www.boingboing.net

In order to raise the spirits of an Italian prince burdened by the cares of his position, a musician created for him a cat piano. The musician selected cats whose natural voices were at different pitches and arranged them in cages side by side, so that when a key on the piano was depressed, a mechanism drove a sharp spike into the appropriate cat’s tail. The result was a melody of meows that became more vigorous as the cats became more desperate. Who could not help but laugh at such music? Thus was the prince raised from his melancholy.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

I hate cat abuse!


I wonder how they kept the cats in their pens? Go stick a sharp object into a cat's tail and watch how fast it gets airborne and vicious.


Peace
