(back) Subject: A Delightful Home Installation From: <TheGluePot@aol.com> Date: Sun, 4 Feb 2001 03:35:41 EST   I just visited a really neat home installation. The owner has put it on = his web page:   <boomeria.com>   It is a really interesting tracker built into its own hillside chapel. I hope everyone enjoys this as much as I did seeing it in person.   Best to all,   Al Sefl

Where/what is > Boomeria? > Rick >>   Mr. Boomer is a Physics and Chemistry teacher at a local high school in = the Santa Cruz Mountains. The chapel and the organ were projects done on his mountain property by he and his students. The students also erected a = neat castle and have water battles powered by an old Model T engine powering a large water cannon. Boomeria is where the students have parties, club initiations, and can see Physics at work. The organ is set up to see the roller board operate the pulldowns from the tracker action and the physics = of sound can be experienced first hand as various lengths of pipes play the various pitches and timbres. If memory serves the organ is on 44 mm of = wind and its sound is just fabulous in the little pine chapel. Organ programs = by world renowned artists occur a couple of times a year and there is a Christmas concert too. Pipe organ music in a redwood grove is achieved = with the windows of the chapel opening so invited picnic goers can hear the = fine nuances of a home built organ with mechanical action. In short, Boomeria = is the creation of an energetic genius who has taken his home and turned it = into a magic spot high in the California Redwoods.   Glad that you liked it and hope that Boomeria.com inspires more of on our list to finish up and enjoy their own instruments.   Best wishes to all,   Al Sefl

What a fun place it would be to visit once, much less regularly!!   Somebody should do an article about it for TAO/The Diapason or = something...   Cheers!   Tim Bovard Little Rock AR    
(back) Subject: Great Beginner Site From: "mike" <mike3247@earthlink.net> Date: Sun, 04 Feb 2001 19:04:50 -0500   Hi fellow "rank" amateur listers.   I stumbled across this amazingly well executed site while searching Lycos for pipe organ sites.   http://www3.sympatico.ca/billinger/organ/organ.htm   I remember telling another list member that a virtual tour through a pipe organ would be of great value to kids and others who are experiencing pipe organ science for the first time. The present site is rather rudimentary, but the possibilities for using this type of animation in more advanced presentations is endless. Imagine a virtual 3D tour through an organ drawn to scale with animated overlays where you are actually a wind molecule making the journey through the instrument.   Having Fun Always Mike Gettelman
