Tim Lee's Piano Performance for Two Record Players features the artist's rendition of the opening aria of Bach's Goldberg Variations. An audio recording of each of Lee's hands was individually mastered on its own record, thus to hear Lee's 'variation', a listener must employ two turntables in perfect synchronicity.
