Keith Medley makes beautiful music on his own creation; the one-of-a-kind 27-string guitar. In this new video Keith has re-arranged the classic piece "Hall Of The Mountain King" composed by Edvard Grieg for Peer Gynt in 1875. It is most recently know as an arrangement by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross for the David Fincher film, "The Social Network".

Keith is an amazing talent as a musician, guitarist and master luthier. He designed and built his Medley 27-string guitar in order to play the music in his head.
This will be in the forthcoming film, "Creative Spirit", and will follow Keith's creative process with detailed documentary of the guitar building process, 3 performance music videos conveying the sights and sounds that result, as well as an ongoing narrative and conversations with Keith. Viewers will understand how Keith's creativity manifests itself, his philosophy and his optimistic attitude to achieve these goals as he literally invents new instruments and playing techniques. Questions of what motivates his creativity, who and what inspires him, how limits and parameters must be imposed in order to reach completion, what are his most difficult challenges, are all topics that will be covered in depth. And most importantly, how does this all translate to viewers in ways that can help them learn and achieve in their lives?
