Note by Note: The Making of Steinway L1037

USA, 2007, 81 min, DVD, Director: Ben Niles
Introduction and discussion with filmmaker Ben Niles
In our age of mass-production and consumption, what is the role of the musician – both an instrument’s craftsman and its player? Note by Note: The Making of Steinway L1037 is an independent documentary film that follows the creation of a Steinway concert grand piano over a year, from the search for wood in Alaska to a display at Manhattan's Steinway Hall. Along the way, Niles talks to many of the people who have had a hand in the making of this piano, as well as those who later hear music being performed on the instrument. Note by Note was screened in competition at the 2007 Silverdocs Film Festival, a competition founded by the American Film Institute and the Discovery Channel. Tickets: $4/$7

Event begins at 6:30PM
