Pat Metheny:
The Orchestrion Project


"Improvisation #2" Excerpt

Pat Metheny performing on
CBS Sunday Morning

Interview with Steve Rodby,

Based on a childhood fascination with his grandfather’s player piano, 19 time Grammy Award winner Pat Metheny, commissioned and built The Orchestrion, a mechanically controlled mini-orchestra capable of responding to his touch on the guitar. This innovative project brought about a completely unique approach to solo performance. The collaboration between this master guitarist and his wildest imagination has resulted in a fascinating and absolutely one of a kind musical experience. "The Orchestrion Project" showcases Metheny single-handedly operating this symphony of instruments in one illustrious treat for the senses.

“The Orchestrion Project” was filmed by Grammy and Emmy Award winning directors Pierre & François Lamoureux at the former St Elias Church in Greenpoint, Brooklyn in November 2010. It features Pat Metheny on guitar performing The Orchestrion Suite as well as other tracks from across Metheny’s prolific career.
