Parts and Labour

2012


Reconstructed piano + HD video (26 mins)


I spent four months at a piano workshop, learning to restore a disused piano.


The instrument was first taken apart for the old strings to be replaced by new ones. Improvements were then made to various mechanical parts and keys, before the piano was reassembled and tuned to playable condition.


Each part of the process was recorded on camera and edited into a video.


Workshop: Goecke & Farenholtz
