Inspirational instruments / Re: A New Modular Pipe Organ

Thanks, I think it will be interested in seeing how this organ will be used when it is completed.

I had also came across another modular pipe organ under construction called L'Orgue Gulliver. It has a rather interesting swell box for the trumpet rank.

Inspirational instruments / A New Modular Pipe Organ
« on: May 10, 2021, 09:38:20 AM »
I recently stumbled across a post on the Toulouse les Orgues Facebook page about a proposal for a new portable pipe organ called L'orgue L'Explorarateur. The organ will have a modular design (similar to the Orgue du Voyage), and will consist of 30 stops derived from 12 ranks of pipes. The construction of this organ is intended to begin later this the year, and should be completed by next year.

1. Bourdon 32′ 16′ 8′ 4′
2. Principal 8′ 4′ 2 2/3′ 2′ 1 1/3′
3. Flûte d’orchestre 8′ et Flûte harmonique 4′ 2′ 1′
4. Flûte traversière en bois 8′ 
5. Salicional 8′ 4 
6. Viole 8′
7. Nasard 5 1/3′ 2 2/3′ 1 1/3′
8. Tierce 3 1/5′ 1 3/5′
9. Trompette 8′ 4′
10. Ophicléide 16′
11. Clarinette 8′
12. 13. Physarmonica 8′

Inspirational instruments / Touring Pipe Organ Concert
« on: August 10, 2020, 11:18:47 AM »
Recently the organist Paolo Oreni did a concert on his touring pipe organ called the Organo Wanderer which is available on Youtube.

I should however point out that I am posting mainly out of intrigue as I personally feel that the performance was all right but note great.
A lot of the problems with his performance I would attribute to the space the concert is being held in as I feel the room is a bit small for some of the music performed.

But even then I feel even the performance isn't perfect, as I find Paolo Oreni's playing can be a little too erratic at times and the sound of the organ can also be quite piercing.

But I feel that if this concert was held in a better venue it could greatly improve the performance as I find a previous concert Paolo Oreni did accompanying a silent sounded quite good, and I even find his virtuosity to be less in your face.
Concert program

00:00 – Concerto in D Major after Vivaldi BWV 972 – Johann Sebastian Bach
11:21 – Fantasy and Fugue on B-A-C-H – Franz Liszt
23:42 – Toccata and Fugue in D minor BWV 565 – Johann Sebastian Bach
35:20 – Allegro Vivace from Organ Symphony No. 5 in F minor – Charles Marie Widor
46:18 – Gabriel's Oboe – Ennio Morricone   
58:20 – Badinerie from Orchestral Suite No. 2 in B minor BWV 1067 – Johann Sebastian Bach

I remember years ago seeing a video about a performance at the Melbourne town hall where someone played the pipe organ using a program called Kinect that allows you to create music through conducting.

You're welcome, and hopefully one day I could track down a specification for this organ.

It's probably not that important as I don't think many people will see this thread, but as some of you may have suspected that the original website for this project is no longer available. But I have managed to get access to an archived version of the site through an internet archive called the Wayback Machine.

Inspirational instruments / mobile concert organ

A few months back while I was looking for an organ mentioned in a video about historical organs used for accompaniment I stumbled across a modular pipe organ called the Wanderer Organo which I thought some of you might be interested in.

As far as I know there are two video’s of this organ on Youtube. One is a rather average video of Mozart’s Fantasia in F minor K 608, while the other is of a rather gloomy silent film version of Faust.

I know that I am a bit late to reply to this post but I would like to say that I think it is unfortunate that the idea of a mobile pipe organ is often ignored. I understand that the idea of a mobile pipe organ seems near to impossible but I do know of a couple of pipe organs that are designed to be portable but also quite powerful.
