Good thing I live out in the country where the only living/breathing creature bothered by my piano playing is my goats... well, I don't think they are bothered by it, as long as they have some pasture grass to graze on and some grain to eat now and then. smile

On the other hand, living in an apartment or condo, we must be considerate of our neighbors... or go to court.

30 db spl is is softer than the background noise in a big city suburb. Most forced air furnaces run louder than 30 db measured from the vent.

Rick, and our neighbors must be considerate of us. There is no right to silence. We have as much right to practice as my neighbor's children have a right to shriek when they play, the other neighbors to run their AC compressor anytime the temp shoots up to 82 degrees and the couple in the back to have hour long drunken shouting matches. Of course, the problems really start when one or both parties don't understand moderation or reasonableness and we appear to have the lack of both in the cited story from España.

Maybe hold off on the piano and bring in a flamenco troupe? Perhaps that would be tolerated...

This is in Gerona, in Northern Catalonia. You'd be lucky to find a flamenco troupe within 300 miles.

So what? I have walked a greater distance in Spain. Put them on the bus.

If there are no takers, send in a cobla band. They'd be local.

Let's see, Sonia Bosom suffered "insomnia, anxiety, panic attacks and gynecological problems", and now she "hates pianos so much she can't even stand to see them in a film"? Gynecological problems and panic attacks? Really, from a piano? I'd say this is a person who has problems all right, some big ones. And it looks like she has found someone to (try and) blame them on. Right, make the piano player pay because she's been missing work. This sounds like more than a big stretch to me. Hopefully the legal system in Spain requires the burden of proof to be on the plaintiff. If so, Sonia should have a major, if not impossible task ahead of her. Whatever case Sonia makes I bet can be easily challenged by a good attorney and a couple of top expert witnesses.

Furthermore, since she moved six years ago and is just now getting around to suing, I'd say makes this a civil case, not a criminal one, and therefore the threat of jail time would be totally inappropriate. What the article doesn't say, is whether the "prosecutors" are civil attorneys or or government prosecutors, what we would call District Attorneys here in the U.S. If they're civil, they should probably go pound sand. Either way, maybe Laia Martin should investigate any misconduct on the part of the prosecutors, she may have a case of her own.

Ordinarily I reserve comment on court cases, because after all, I'm not there sitting in the jury box listening to testimony. But gynecological problems and panic attacks? Give me a break. And as far as not being able to look at a piano in a movie, I can just hear the violins (no, make that a piano) playing "My Heart Bleeds for You". Oh, the poor dear.
