Note By Note: The Making of Steinway L1037 Directed by 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?; Musically, what have we gained?; More importantly, what are we losing? The most thoroughly handcrafted instruments in the world, Steinway pianos are as unique and full of personality as the world-class musicians who play them.; However, their makers are a dying breed: skilled cabinet-makers, gifted tuners, thorough hand-crafters. Note By Note is an independent feature-length documentary that follows the creation of a Steinway concert grand, #L1037 -- from forest floor to concert hall.; It explores the relationship between musician and instrument, chronicles the manufacturing process, and illustrates what makes each Steinway unique in this age of mass production.; From the factory floor in Queens to Steinway Hall in Manhattan, each piano's journey is complex -- spanning 12 months, 12,000 parts, 450 craftsmen, and countless hours of fine-tuned labor.; Filmed in key Steinway locations -- the factory, Steinway's reserved "Bank," and private auditions -- Note By Note is a loving celebration of not just craftsmanship, but of a dying breed of person who is deeply connected to working by hand.; In the end, this is an ode to the most unexpected, and perhaps ironic, of unsung heroes.; It reminds us how extraordinary the dialogue can be between an artist and an instrument -- crafted out of human hands but borne of the materials of nature.
