Making Trees Sing Again - Salute to True Craftsmen

Marc Maingard - Making Trees Sing Again from Jared Paisley on Vimeo.

"It's like taking a magical tree that has been cut down and killed, but it lives. It still lives, the pores of the wood are still shifting, and drying, and changing. It's almost as though the tree has a chance to sing again, with the wind blowing through its branches again."

- Marc Maingard
