To examine a musical instrument; the craftsmanship of how it
was engineered, built, plays, looks and feels, is in itself, witnessing a
work of art. Art that is built to produce
and create a musical form of art, intended to, in one shape or form, touch others.
Should that stop just because it is no longer playable? The Revival Series is
the answer to that very question. Being a musician himself, Gregory A. Bardasian’s
love of music, adoration of instrumentation and its history, is the driving force
that not only aims to breathe new life
into old and no longer playable, damaged, or discarded instruments, but to allow
them to live on in a unique collection of art. Carefully dissecting pianos that are over one
hundred years old, in some cases, and using nothing but their parts to create
custom framing, canvas’s, wall hangings, sculptures, and home décor, he is
finding a new way for the instruments that touched so many lives, to continue
to do so, and allowing many art and music lovers to witness a whole new way to
look at art, music, expression and creation.
