    The first 18 pages of Antisonata for piano by Ben Harper, 2005-2013. Antisonata plays all of Domenico Scarlatti’s 555 keyboard sonatas simultaneously, but very, very slowly; so slowly that a complete performance takes as long as it would to play them consecutively (about 18 hours). To complicate matters, the pitch range of the source material has been extended to match the range of a modern piano, and new chords have been added throughout. The placement of chords and octave transpositions were determined by chance, according to independently variable probabilities
