On West Virginia Public Radio's "Live from the Mountain State," they used to refer to is as a "mechanical synthesizer." An apt description, too!   Dennis Steckley ______________ Wouldn't you rather carry wooden blocks rather than a saw in your music sack      
(back) Subject: Bench Height perilous perches From: "Gilson" <sgilson@sympatico.ca> Date: Thu, 2 Jan 2003 19:06:13 -0800   Hi all,   While we're going on about bench heights and so on...I'm six-foot-five, = and if I sit on any bench, my knees get caught under the keydesk most of the time! I carry two different types of home-made blocks with me whenever I travel or "guest", and have been known to play balanced on hymn books, cushions, kneelers, or anything else I can find that will raise me three extra inches. The comment I get most often? "Wow, we could actually SEE = the organist today!"   As far as perilous perches, I've never played with my back to a rail like some of you have described, fortunately, as I have a terrible fear of heights...(imagine that, at six foot five!) but I did play a friend's wedding at Sacre-Coeur RC church in Chicoutimi, Quebec. Nice 2m Casavant = in a case, right behind the console, which faces forward, up in the second balcony, four flights of stairs up! All you see over the music rack are = the ceiling fans! Then I found this odd looking contraption on the console, = with mirrors in it which turned out to be a wide periscope! If you look into it the right way, you can actually see the altar, etc. but the priest is only about three inches tall...   This place is big enought that there is an intercom between the vestry and the organ loft. You know the type of place: "Just start playing when you see the bride come in", they say "But I can't see the bride, she's coming in four flights down, beneath the balcony!" you answer "Oh, well we'll call you on the intercom" they say "But I'll be playing the prelude" you answer "Oh, I guess that's what the assistant is for" they answer "Thanks a lot" you say, and hire a small boy to answer the phone...but playing with nearly a four second reverb is well worth it!   Cheers and Happy New Year to all,   Steve Gilson Organist and Choirmaster St. Andrew's Presbyterian St. Lambert, Quebec
