Musical Instrument Museum Going Cinematic With First Annual Film Series (Trailers Included)
A scene from Laya Project
Phoenix's Musical Instrument Museum announced this week that it's expanding its globally focused M.O. to include celluloid features.
Set to debut later this month, the series will include flicks that document worldwide sonic efforts, ranging from a Steinway workshop in New York to the post-tsunami musical communities of Sri Lanka, Thailand, Indonesia, Maldives, Myanmar, and India.
