The organ-like instrument that David Byrne plays for Cheyenne is a variation of Byrne's "house organ." Byrne created the organ in 2008 as part of an art installation project in New York City. Instead of playing musical notes, each key on the organ transmits a signal through a wire, which in turn "plays" the building: for example, motors vibrating a set of metal girders, hoses blowing air through the building's water pipes, or metal rods striking the radiator.

How refreshing it is to sit through an inspirational and yet entertaining story. If you fell in love with Sean Pen during the trailer, you will definitely be happy to know that those two hours will not disappoint you.
"This Must be the Place" brings back Penn and his wonderful talent to depict a strange character that doesn't seem to connect with the world around him. It's a delicious journey through the ups and downs of life and the numerous ways of facing them. It's about love and family, courage and determination in searching for what makes sense to you in spite of what people may think. Penn is extraordinarily funny in a simple way, unpretentiously humble and somehow adorable as a man who sees the world differently from everybody else. I had a wonderful time watching this movie, without that feeling of betrayal left by so many deceitful trailers.
