The Autopsy of a Piano

I heard this really cool story on NPR this morning about this team of musicians who play the piano in a very interesting way. Ten musician crowd around a piano that has been opened up and play it using strings and hammers and tongue depressors to get a full range of orchestra sounds.

Here is the NPR link:

I downloaded the new Delopoulos album the day before Thanksgiving when it first went on sale online. So far I think Open Your Eyes is my favorite song on there...I have seen the video! I enjoyed its creativity and its style of animation!

Very cool video with the piano as well! Hope everything is going well with you and Laura! Blessings to both of you!
