Video about breaking apart a piano and making a new instrument?

I saw a video on Metafilter a year or more ago. Some guy takes an upright piano, cuts it into pieces, and reassembles it into some new weird instrument. Maybe combined it with other parts? Then he plays a strange weird tune on it--kind of droning and repetitious, very cool. Where did it go?

It's the bassoforte by Diego Stocco, from this post.

Inspired, I'm sure, by the great Harpo Marx

I forgot that my sound is off when i went to watch that, mintcake, so I have no idea what the audio content is, but I watched it anyway.

I'm not sure why roving gangs of escaped carpenters are led by tiny girls with henchman dachshunds in the post-apocalyptic ruins of our civilization, but I have renewed my determination to avoid living in it.
