Obviously y'all find the denicking topic delightful, but I was going for something a bit more dignified and befitting the stature of the voicers, tonal finishers, and tonal directors of our community. Anyway, Seb started it. :-)   Mike   RonSeverin@aol.com wrote:   > Michael: > > I don't think we want to go to Hormones just yet, the other alternatives > are soooooo entertaining! :) Sebastian's suggestion might start a whole > new fad.

(back) Subject: "Son of the Sheik"..what a great evening (cross posted) From: "Jon C." <opus1100@catoe.org> Date: Fri, 03 Aug 2001 23:21:11 -0500   Tonight the Silent Film Society of Chicago screened the 1926 Rudolph Valentino classic, "The Son of the Sheik'...Valentino played both roles, son and father. Accompanying the film on the Gateway Theatre pipe organ = was Dennis James along with the thirty piece Lincolnwood Chamber orchestra. This is the first time I've seen a silent with a live orchestra accompaniment, and is was truly great. Dennis mentioned in his opening remarks that we were enjoying a unique experience that was only happening here, tonight. This was the second film in the "Silent Summer" series and like last weeks film, the society has obtained a restored film which is sharp, clear and a =   pleasure to watch. The organ and orchestra shared the photo play duties with Dennis furnishing additional embellishments from the organ during the orchestra portions, = for various scenes in was full orchestra and for others the organ performed = the mood backgrounds....it was so well executed that organ and orchestra provided a seamless magic carpet of silent movie music. Again the film and =   musicians received an enthusiastic show of appreciation from the audience. I can only hope that tonights presentation is not an isolated experience and that are more silent films with live orchestra = accompaniment.   jch

(back) Subject: Re: Nicking and DeNicking pipes From: <RonSeverin@aol.com> Date: Sat, 4 Aug 2001 01:35:40 EDT   Hi Mike:   Did you read my piece Nicking and the Science of doing it! Every builder had his own nicking secrets. That would be a part of the organ lore that will be lost unless someone takes the time and interest to study it and compile a book on each one. Metal and wood density, shape of the mouth were all apart of the mix. You might want to start on the big Severence Hall Skinner. Reeds were voiced based on the shape of the shallot, the reed tongue density, whether the shallot was leathered or smooth, the slot or cap at the top of the pipes, and the resonator shape. Metal content, lead to pure tin. Thickness of the pipe walls, the shape=20 of the languids, some were inverted. The wind presures used. Cavaille Coll used 3, 5 or sometimes 7 different wind pressures on certain=20 stops. Are the pipes overblown double length harmonic? Size and=20 shape of the wind reservoirs, double rise, triple rise. Were the flues slotted? Size of the pipe scales, and the relative size of the room. All of this until recently had to be done by instinct, learned experience from others without the luxury of computer aids and CADS. All was worked out before a saw cut one piece of wood, or metal melted into sheets. And yes the nicks were determined before the pipes were even made. These men built these organs in their mind first before they ever went out t= he door as a reality.   I guess that's why I appreciate pipe organs more now than I ever did as a youngster.   Regards,   Ron Severin   http://www.musicbase.org/E/SEV001.html http://www.churchorgansystems.com.html/products Fax:1-208-439-6781 Church Organ Systems of Orange County J=E4ger und Brommer Orgelbau St. Mary's by the Sea
