Instruments in the Architecture: Building The Pianodrome

Runtime: 13:15
Country: United Kingdom
Language: English
Category: 2019 | Short Documentaries/TV Documentaries (2019)

Pianos are being thrown away at a tremendous rate – hauled away, set on fire and their valuable heavy metal sold for scrap. Tim, Leon and their team of inspired artists, musicians and volunteers have reclaimed these unloved instruments to build the world’s first 100-seater amphitheatre made entirely from up-cycled pianos. Balancing the artistic integrity of Tim’s vision with Leon’s practicality and realism tests the strength of their relationship as they race to complete the Pianodrome for its debut at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Austen McCowan & Will Hewitt are Co-Directors at Melt The Fly. The Edinburgh based production company was formed by the two friends 10 years after their first experiments with video at school. The sole purpose of MTF is to explore and reveal stories from a different perspective. Good stories hide in plain sight, but it takes a sharp eye and an inquisitive nature to recognise their potential. Documentary provides the most creatively fulfilling platform to showcase these stories.
