Alleged crimes: music at all hours and noise pollution.

Sonia B, a person of Puigcerda, Girona (Spain) accused the pianist Laia M of playing piano up to eight hours and five days a week between October 2003 and September 2007 stressing her.

The pianist (professional now but then, an 18 years old student) denies the facts, but the prosecution and private prosecution request a sentence of seven years and a half in prison. Six years for a crime against noise pollution environment, and a year and a half for another crime of mental injuries against her neighbor Sonia B, who had to move to another town with her family and currently, she has developed a phobia against pianos.

The trial began yesterday, on Monday 18 of November 2013.

Of course, the defense attorney asked full acquittal.

We will see. For the moment, no comments, but maybe today we shouldn’t say our motto. You know: ‘Art is everywhere and up to you.’

“Life is like a piano. What you get out of it depends on how you play it.” By Tom Lehrer.
