(back) Subject: San Sylmar From: "MediaConstituents" <kealypaul@yahoo.com> Date: Mon, 24 Feb 2003 08:06:28 -0800 (PST)   Since I'm taking some folks to San Sylmar in a few weeks, what information should I know of this instrument in the Los Angeles area.   I was there years ago before the building was shut down for rebuilding after one of our major California earthquakes, and enjoyed hearing it and the other museum exhibits, and look forward to this tour, displaying music machines and the automoble exhibits (including a Tucker auto).   How "fake" is this Wurlitzer? As it is a player, does that make it a fake? Anyone on the list have any information I would enjoy prior to our visit?   I hope to install a theatre pipe unit some day, and want to MIDI it for the sake of playback, would THAT make it a "fake?" The ecclectic theatre sound, band box, et al, would add to the authenticity of a rococco mish-mash. To me, that is half the fun, although not an "authentic" to the purist.   We have church instruments in the area that can be controlled by MIDI (I'm talking about playing wind-blown pipes, not merely Roland sampled sounds through electronic speaker boxes), but to me, an assembly of real pipes is a real pipe installation.   __________________________________________________ Do you Yahoo!?

It is so distressingly easy to confuse composers who use middle names. In fact, if I remember right, Charles Marie Widor lived for several years in a tenement on Delancey Street and Robert Leech Bedell lived the last years of his life in an ashram in India.   According to Slonimsky, "Leon Dudley" were Sorabji's (born Aug 14 1892) "real Christian names." Evidently he adopted the name Kaikhosru later. His father was a Parsi, his mother of Spanish-Sicilian extraction.   > >

The pioneer times, and the "incredible" but oh = so common story of the second Caracas Cathedral Organ.   Frontierland is Frontierland. While in the other regions of the Virreign, not to mention Brazil and Mexico terrific organs were erected things in Venezuela staggered a little in comparison. Self made men build their opus for better or worse and made experiments with the existing ones. Nevertheless, Venezuela got a lot of organs, as could be stated by "Wandering Adventure Bishop" Mariano Marti. Since Venezuela remained as a poor frontier region that only produced an excellent cocoa and some coffee and sugar cane, the interest of the Crown = to develope it was slow. In the resulting vacuum the french soon made a niche that had some interesting influences in regional organ history, but became = a cuckoo's egg for the Spanish Empire too because revolutionary ideas = spreaded soon.   Wages were meager, and in order to do a living an organist asides had to = be: School Teacher, Music Instructor, sick (say hangovered?) musicians Substitute in the Orchestra (this way he learned to play four or five instruments), Singer, Organ- Harpsichord- Guitar- and Piano Maker and Technician; Copist, Composer; Chronist, Archive Keeper, Historian; Music Director, Orchestra Conductor, Chapel Master; Astronom, Physician, Newspaperman, Politician, Lawyer, Priest; Disc Jockey, Engineer, Race Car driver, Test Pilot, Astronaut- wooops!, I skipped two centuries.- At the = end of the story organ playing became the hobby of the man. This venearable tradition goes on until today, keeping alive the "Uomo Universale" Ideal = in a world that respects only specialists.   Nevertheless we are proud of these brave pioneers, more when we read at = the records how many times they had to fight for their payment, new scores, supplies, or to have their instruments repaired, and how they were fighted because of "sloppy works", "misconstructed instruments" and other injustices. The most pathetic case was poor man Joseph Fonte del Castillo.   He was called to repair the Caracas Cathedral organ and to the dismay of = all he made a new instrument. How could this astounding phenomenon happen? After 20 years "in the field" I guess how, and will tell you: "The organ is slightly mistuned, has a cypher, and two keys are stuck", tells the parish at the phone. When I arrive with my toolbox, the blower has not seen an oil drop in decades, the organ has almost no leather on the reservoir and the dust = layer over all is thick enough to justify an archeologic excavation- for this = it's "slightly mistuned". Termites ate away half the pallets- for that the "cyphers". Beneath the "stuck keys" there is a whole Pet Sematary, and after cleaning up the mess I need a good Schnaps. More interesting founds can be made inside the instrument. A colleague found a stake of vintage "Playboy" = issues that were hidden under a reservoir, and the Chief Technician from Kleuker Orgelbau found a 1901 silver coin.   All in all it turns out that I will have to move half my workshop to the church and etablish myself there for three months because the "repair" becomes a "rebuilding" job.- My colleagues at the piano branch can tell = the similar histories.   When I submit my report plus budget to the parish, he howls: "Whaaat?!- = All this only to correct a few mistuned notes?!", and then I must explain a = lot of technical stuff to a man who never saw an organ but from the chancel = and hasn't the slightest idea how it works. You can believe me that I = developed a lot of pedagogic skills in all these years.   A similar thing happened to Matias Fonte, I guess... he started to work, = and when he finished the repairwork he had built a new 17 stop organ without noticing! The chapter "was shocked about this instrument" and howled aloud over the wicked sum of 5000 Pesos and the fact that it wasn't notified about the = "new construction". The litigation that started in consequence lasted for five years. Many "extraordinary sessions" were made. Nasty comments came and went, and = eager secretaries noted all in the records, of course omitting the rude expressions. The litigation went to the Governor, who passed it to the General Captain who passed it to the Viceking who passed it to the Virregn Administration who passed it to the Royal Minister who passed it to the King of Spain who spoke the last word and ordered "In Name of God" to pay the darn 5000 = pesos to that crazyman, and at last Matias Fonte got his payment. The members of the chapter still sobbed about the beautiful 5000 Pesos they had to pay = for a "misconstructed organ" that "every couple of years gets out of tune and has to be repaired". The litigation cost had been much more than the cost = of the organ, and the paper mountain was so huge that even the most voracious pests couldn't destroy all documents, and for this we got a description = plus stop list of the instrument: A "carved but unfinished wood case with three trumpet playing boys on top of the facade" and 17 stops enclosed in a swellbox.   The bad impression of the scandal lasted on, however. For the next 110 = years every repair on the organ was due to its "misconstruction". When the 1812 earthquake teared down half the Cathedral and the organ got a lot of = plaster dust in its pipework for sure it was considerd a fault of Joseph Matias Fonte, the "organ scammer". Another fuss started because of the sculptures of the "three trumpet playing boys on the top of the organ facade". The Cathedral Chapter decided that the trumpet playing boys "looked too offending", and ordered a plastic surgery that converted them into angels. This reminds me that once upon a time, when my colleagues and I were young lads, we "designed" all sorts of odd organ specs and accesories, as crown = of irreverence a remote controlled "Manneken Pis" to be installed on the = facade top over the console. When a bad or "better-than-you-idiots" attituded organist played at the organ, one of us would push *the* button, and the rest is left to your imagination... now we settled down of course.   Back to topic: All in all, a lot of "food for thought" remains because = until today it isn't clear at all who had the reason: Matias Fonte or the Cathedral Chapter?- I am loyal and stick to my colleague, more when I consider that the organ lasted for more than a century...   (will be cont'd) =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D First was the cat, then was the Orgler.

The fact that it does have a MIDI record/playback unit and solid state combination memory has absolutely nothing to do with the banks and banks of wind blown pipes in the chambers, it merely enables that = magnificent organ to be showcased for visitors in the absence of a live organist. the =   MIDI recorded does play back the performance note per note, exactly as the =   organist played it when it was recorded so, it is in essence a live performance of a particular organist.   A band box, which I believe is in reference to a Midi voice module, does = not exist at San Sylmar, nor does any other kind of electronic or digital enhancement, the pipes speak for themselves, and eloquently so, I might = add. It is without a doubt one of THE finest theatre pipe organs in existence = and is capable of just about every conceivable nuance possible.   I hope this answers the question about the "fake" nature of the San Sylmar =   organ.   Scott F.
