Lockdown things to do with your piano (2): Ram itmain
Use it to ram a police line.
Apparently there’s nothing in the German criminal code that prohibits driving a piano through a line of cops. So an unemployed soloist gave it a go at last week’s anti-Covid demo in Berlin.
The removal of pianist and piano required, according to the police report, ‘considerable force’.
The pianist’s name is Arne Schmitt. Book him for a Stockhausen recital before he does it again.

UPDATE: Arne writes: Awesome, I was brutally arrested by the police today…
Completely disproportionate, and unlawful..
And then even though I didn’t fight back, only behaving passively, I was told I’m getting a criminal complaint for resisting the police, among other things for hitting and kicking, and that’s not true.
I was totally passive.
What’s going on in our state?
