Murch, Makita, Player Piano

Kurt Andersen talks with master film editor Walter Murch about the tools he used to edit movies like The Godfather and Cold Mountain. You’ll hear a painter fall in love with some very shapely power drills. A riding lawnmower is customized to dance to the sounds of leaf blowers and weed whackers. And before composers used computers, one created complex music no human could ever play, by using the old-fashioned player piano.
