Product details

The Fourth Estate is a societal, political or institutional force whose influence is not officially recognised, and is a term often used to refer to the press. Its original use relates to the three estates of the realm: clergy, nobility and commoners. Australia in particular has seen just how powerful 'unofficial' voices can be, through monopolisation of the media, editorialised media reporting and political bias. The Fourth Estate is a work that compares the sonoric qualities of the piano with those of small electronic devices that extend and contrast with it. Small voices that have the ability to change everything. As the Fourth Estate is thought to be an element of society 'outside' official recognition, here the electronics attempt to pull the piano into a different sound world outside its usual realm.
