It probably couldn't be done with pipes . . .

I remember seeing an 'enharmonic' organ at the erstwhile harmonium museum in Saltaire.

I have a photograph I took at the time, though I'm not sure whether I can post it on here.  (It is, of course, a harmonium rather than a pipe organ.)

Interesting video David.

I've seen (and even once attempter to play) the Harmonium when it was at Saltaire - but to be fair, that was designed more to demonstrate the principals of intervals, etc. than a fully functional musical instrument.

Microtonal music is certainly an interesting area.
