‘La Mer De Pianos’

© Tom Wrigglesworth and Mathieu Cuvelier

A lifetime crafting and servicing the piano is nothing but rare in any craft today. Owning the shop for 13 out of the 15 years he has worked there, is a testament to the importance of carrying the tradition and legacy of one craft. Although Marc Manceaux, the business owner, says business slows down just a bit every year, his passion for what he does, keeps him there. As long as no one kicks him out of there, water, candle, sketch book and music will keep him alive and moving forward. He articulates that these days, the business is not about fixing a new piano but about conservation. He explores the world for old piano parts that could serve another timeless piano and help it be played once again. He continues to sacrifice one piano part for another and these transactions give his shop an interesting feel as you witness so many injured pianos. A sea of piano parts working together to conserve one that has a chance of survival.

I´m happy to introduce Marc Manceaux and La Mer de Painos. A film directed, shot & edited by Tom Wrigglesworth &Mathieu Cuvelier.

    Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the
    net the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people
    consider worries that they plainly do not know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out
    the whole thing without having side-effects
    , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
    Thanks
