(back) Subject: What does an organ look like? From: "First Christian Church of Casey, Illinois" <kzrev@rr1.net> Date: Tue, 9 Mar 2004 11:11:44 -0600   What does an organ look like? It seems to me that the question is about as pointless as asking 'What does a car look like?" There's a heck of a lot of difference between a Model T Ford, a 1930's Rolls Royce, a 1959 Cadillac, and my 2003 Honda CR-V. But they are all cars........they reflect the design and culture of their times. And even if I stick to current models, a Ford Expedition doesn't look much like an Austin Mini-Cooper or a Ferrari.   So be it. Some builders want organs to look like pieces of history even when installed in a modern building. I understand that, but I'm not sure I agree. I rather like organs to "fit" architecturally with the building in which they are installed. A Gothic cathedral, IMNSHO, ought to have an organ in a Gothic case; an organ in a simple New England meeting house ought to have a case of classic simple elegance. An organ in a gaudy Art Deco theatre ought to be Art Deco. An organ in a gleaming contemporary concert hall ought to be consistent with that style.   I don't personally think this discussion is going anywhere, but I'm happy to keep reading about it if you want to, but I would really appreciate it if those posting would DELETE ALL THE EXTRA PARTS OF OLD EMAILS BEFORE REPLYING!

I wanted to explain why I made the comment contrasting my experiences = between Euro (in which I was including Copeman Hart) and the 2 "giant" = American builders. My total experience in this consists of first hand dealings with: 5 Brand "A" dealers 4 Brand "R" dealers 2 Brand "J" dealers 1 Brand "E" / "C" dealer 1 Brand "P" dealer Walker Technical The J, E, C dealers sell instruments from Holland, P is a joint effort = between Canadian and English folks. About 5 years experience with Internet exposure / chat lists etc. have = also provided insights as I have read the various posts by several other = dealers / developers / co owners / champions ... what ever for Copeman = Hart, Walker, Ahlburne Galanti, and Musicom. Except for some rather testy exchanges regarding who developed what in = England, and who does and does not build organs, or who has continued to = develop a technology that others are using ..... or who has to have the = last word ; over the past years I have not witnessed out and out lieing, = character assassination, or evidence of corporate "dirty tricks" policies. = These, I have, first hand from "A" and "R" dealers .... and in the case = of the biggest builder, much further up the ladder. The 2 "J" dealers, in contrast are now friends of mine because of their = honesty and integrity ..... Maybe I am just lucky to have met "the best" = that there are for this builder .... and maybe they are the exception. I = will also add that I KNOW that the owner / top management of the "J" = builder absolutely do not condone or encourage business tactics that you = see me attributing to "A" and "R". I also know that the "J" owner / top = management absolutely do not "fight back" using the same tactics that are = used against them .... even though they have plenty of "ammunition" if = they ever decided to. As for my other experiences: My dealings with Walker Technical were 100 % professional and honest = ...... My experience with the remaining dealers I've listed above ("E", "C" and = "P" ) is more limited, but negative sales tactics, and personal attacks = were never made against any competing products / dealers. Basically this is why I spoke more favorably in my opinions regarding the = "Euro" builders. Matt ..             --------------------------------- Do you Yahoo!? Yahoo!

(back) Subject: Re: Disney Hall organ appearance / Sound From: "Russ Greene" <rggreene2@shaw.ca> Date: Tue, 09 Mar 2004 13:09:14 -0600   Something that no one seems to have picked up on in this never ending thread:   Disney Hall is NOT primarily an organ place. It is a multi-faceted concert hall which includes a pipe organ. Although the pipe organ is large, it will be a minor part of the musical life of this building.   Therefore, there were really only two options available for its appearance.   1. Make the organ facade blend with the architecture of the building thereby featuring it as both a pipe organ and a dominant part of the architectural design.   or   2. Hide it completely behind some sort of sound-transparent material which would blend with the architecture of the building, preserving the integrity of the building but disguising the fact that the instrument uses pipes instead of speakers - many of the patrons would never have known the difference.   Applause for the folks who chose the first alternative. Let's celebrate that choice.   Alternative 3 - a traditional looking pipe organ which would dominate the front of this most contemporary of concert halls - was quite simply never a possibility. Because this isn't an organ hall. It is a concert hall. Get over it.   Russ Greene
