The Art of Musical Instruments

Standard

Over the last six months I have used broken and abused musical instruments as a jumping off point for several pieces of art, but a recent visit to the Musical Instrument Museum in Scottsdale, AZ, reminded me just how beautiful instruments can be. Beyond the vibrations they exude, beyond the creativity of composition, beyond the artistry of performance, musical instruments are works of art unto themselves. Take a look at some of my favorite pieces (and visit the MIM for a first-hand look at these glorious objects).
