10/12 Pierre Henry's Beethoven

I have no idea what this 1979 homage sounds like, but his 2007 remix may give you some idea...(Pierre Henry in case you don't know is one of the fathers of "musique concrete", the making of musical sounds using electronic tape and collage effects).  Thanks to Doug Theriault for alerting me to the existence of this unusual homage.  More info here.
