Filmed by Grammy® and Emmy® Award–winning directors Pierre and François Lamoureux over a two-day period in November 2010 at the former St. Elias Church in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, The Orchestrion Project showcases Metheny single-handedly operating this symphony of instruments in a remarkable treat for the senses.
The focus of the performance is the "Orchestrion Suite," a work written specifically for this combination and debuted on Metheny’s Orchestrion album released earlier in 2010.
Hear and watch several pianos, drum kits, marimbas, "guitar-bots," dozens of percussion instruments, and even cabinets of carefully tuned bottles as Metheny brings this contraption to life
