In the process, he realized these artifacts were telling a story of a fictional tribe. He called that tribe the "Pianistas."
Since then, Frassinelli has been constructing the history of the Pianistas through his inventions. His exhibit Legend of the Pianistas is on display at Studio 370 at Holliston High School until March 7.
"It's a tribe that made best of use with what's around them, like most Native Americans do. But this tribe only had pianos at their disposal," said Frassinelli.
The tribe made weapons, ceremonial objects, jewelry, totem poles, masks and figurines, which are on display at Studio 370.
