Make April 14th a national day for Aphex Twin’s piano piece, 'Avril 14th'

This petition had 875 supporters


‘Avril 14th’, a minimalist piano composition by the great electronic music pioneer, Aphex Twin, has touched many lives. It has been played at weddings, and at funerals.

As pt0r, a Reddit user, put it: “Somehow this short little piece has an entire lifetime wrapped up in it. So beautiful.” 

April 14th is not crowded field in terms of official anniversaries - in fact it is the date marred by tragic events: Abraham Lincoln’s assassination and the sinking of the Titanic. 

Avril 14th Day would obviously go a long way towards offsetting such negative connotations. Or at the very least, provide an elegiac soundtrack to remembrances of such tragic events. Or something.
