The divided Swell divisions (each with its own intermanual couplers and expression shoe) sorta function like a Choir organ ... as I recall, the enclosed Clarinet is on one of 'em. The Solo-Bombarde division has been sadly compromised ... I never played the organ before the rebuild, but most of the knobs engraved with names of 8' color stops and strings now play big reeds ... As to the new work, it's mostly Wicks, replete with aluminum down-spout facade pipes. The sound is loud, louder and loudest. >>   Thanks for the correction, Bud. The Solo-Bombarde was not touched (there is a nice hooded trumpet there) but some of the non-functioning drawknobs were made to engage other stops. The facade is mostly Wicks pedal pipes, painted with a muted aluminum, and the "frosted" pipes from the A-S. To my knowlege, the organ was voiced under the supervision of, and approved by, Philip Steinhouse. There are plenty of soft stops in the other divisions, so a loud great (which is only 10 feet off the chancel floor) is probably to be expected. The positiv, though moved, is essentially the same.   Steven Skinner First Presbyterian Church of the Covenant Erie, PA

(back) Subject: Slowing Blower Starts = Slowing SIlent Film Speeds From: MUSCUR@aol.com Date: Wed, 21 Oct 1998 13:06:55 EDT   In case anyone is interested in the technology of putting variable speed to modern film projectors in order to show silent films at the correct historical speed(s), this latest post about slow starting blower motors is as succinct an explanation as to how to go about it as I've seen. I've repeated it below in case film-speed interested people missed it. The use in silent films is to rig the control device to an outboard mounted drive motor that, when connected via a Gilmore pulley and belt setup, drives the main projector shaft. The speed of the outboard motor may then be easily regulated by connecting it to the adjustable frequency device. I've seen versions, such as in the projection booth at the Detroit Fox Theatre, where the digital readout is set to show frames per second (it may also be set to show the proportionate electrical feed reading and/or the resulting RPM).   Since the new print of the 1929 version of PHANTOM OF THE OPERA requires 4 different speed settings during the screening, this system is being installed at the Copley SYmphony Hall for the U.S. Premier screening this Saturday (repeat performance at the Universal Ampitheatre in L.A.

I remember several "crawl-ins" and, believe me, they are not nearly as fun to be in as the full-sized (two or three bedroom!) ones which I have seen in the past.

The orchestra transcription was prerecorded on the same organ by Mr. Harris and played back via MIDI, while he then played the organ part. Rousing, exciting and better sounding than might be expected from a non-Cavaille-Coll organ.   Mac Hayes

There are actually four main chest atop a single air box. You can walk straight through, side to side with no porblem, unless you happen to be over six feet tall.   As a side note: It is most interesting to actually hear a concert, or at least a portion of a concert, from the inside. It is amazing just how percussive the whole becomes. You'd be amazed.  
(back) Subject: The "new" Austin organ From: KriderSM@aol.com Date: Wed, 21 Oct 1998 20:06:31 EDT   Yes, Virginia, there is a "new" Austin organ with a walk, er, stoop-in chest. I helped to build it. The chest(s), an open single chest spreading under all four organs (pedal in front, great in center, choir on left as one faces the organ and swell on the right). The only "old" part of the organ is one awesome pedal Open Wood 16'.   The chest has a single door, not the clever air-lock doorway from years bygone. The inside of the air chest is illuminated by three 2-bulb 48" fluorescent light units. Yep, I helped bolt the two expression chambers together, forming the Great chamber between them. Heaviest d---d tempered masonite boards I've ever lifted. Being the theatre organist at heart, I played the first two pieces of music performed on that majestic Austin. The first piece played was "Come In From the Rain" by Melissa Manchester. I refer to it as Noah's Theme Song. The second piece played thereon was "All My Lovin" written by the contemporary British composers, Lennon and McCartney. The sanctuary reverberated for several seconds after the last majestic chord. Later on, of course, Michael Murray gave a fine performance befitting the instrument.   Stan Krider (I am positive that there are no speakers in this organ)

What kind of tremulant is used, if all are winded from the same "air box."
