La Mer de Pianos

This has been one of my favourite Vimeo films since first seeing it a few years back. A poignant look at a declining trade.

“I’m searching for a sound that doesn’t exist. I dream of one day making an instrument with a single string which will sound a bit like a lute, harp and a piano all at once but with just one string, the purity of one single string.
