Also ekekekkekkek Zarathustra

Also sprach Zarathustra (Experimental Cat Version) by Remo De Vico.

A cat organ or cat piano is a hypothetical musical instrument which consists of a line of cats fixed in place with their tails stretched out underneath a keyboard so that they cry out when a key is pressed. The cats would be arranged according to the natural tone of their voices.

This instrument was described by the French writer Jean-Baptiste Weckerlin in his book Musiciana, extraits d’ouvrages rares ou bizarres.

The instrument was first described by Athanasius Kircher in his 1650 work Musurgia Universalis.

I imagined a version of Also sprach Zarathustra played with the help of this instrument.

Also this piece is about a dystopian society of cats when they probably find a strange monolith.
