Sound Wave: Sculpture From Old Piano Keys

When I came across an abandoned upright piano in the alley, I couldn't resist salvaging the 88 keys. After much deliberation, I built a wood frame with an undulating form, then attached the keys in their original order. The result is a rolling wave, or maybe a sound wave, frozen in time. At over 4 feet long, this has become the focal point of my living room wall.

What do you think of my creation? Let me know in the comments below!

As a classical pianist, I found your art work extremely interesting. The piano I have I would not dismantle but have seen so many instruments that have not been cared for leaving them in complete disrepair. After seeing what you have done with the keyboard I am searching for such an instrument now. Just curious about the weight of hanging such a piece. Wonderful piece of art!

Absolutely stunning.. what a fabulous idea. I love your thoughts of A sound wave… very cool. I was also classically trained, but no longer play, and I definitely want one just like this on my wall… a beautiful piece of art – great job!!

Great work! How did you determine the curves on the old frame, and how are the keys actually attached to the frame?
