Spanish prosecutors are insisting for a 20-month prison sentence for a professional pianist whose former neighbour is suing over alleged noise pollution. Laia Martin, the pianist, is on trial in Girona after her family's downstairs neighbour, Sonia Bosom, accused her of causing psychological harm through her constant piano playing.
Ms Bosom says that the pianist practised her piano for eight hours a day, five days a week from 2003 to 2007. The "victim" said she now has such a horror of pianos, she cannot stand even seeing them in films.
In their defence, the Martin family said they had tried to soundproof the room, and that the practice had not been as constant as the "victim" claims. What's even more interesting is that the prosecutor had initially sought a jail term of over seven years(!!!) for Ms Martin.
I really can't understand why they hadn't talked things over while they were neighbours, things like that can be sorted out. Take myself for instance, a few months ago some new lads moved in the apartment just above mine, later I found out they were Conservatoire students. And they also practised some kind of music a few hours every day. It was pretty loud at times so I went and talked to them and we sorted things out like human beings, no need to take something like this to court...
