We're getting everything prepared to start the project. In our first Vlog, Marion starts to take apart our template piano, Lirika. You can follow along with future updates here and on YouTube.
Last Wednesday our friend Fidele dropped by to give Lirika a last play. He taught himself to play keyboard at home and had never played an acoustic piano before. It is such a different experience, and always raises a smile. Often the only places people have seen real pianos are in church, and many people don't realise that they don't require electricity to work.
We're starting a little early on this project as two people have already made enquiries about ordering. We still really need help paying for the prototype, but we feel that we stand a good chance of building a sustainable business once we have something to show.
