This project explores the potential of using MIDI-enabled pipe organs as a platform for new ways of musical performance. Some of the possibilities include:
- Control of the instrument using new interfaces
- Employing the acoustic system of organ pipes as an extensive sonic palette
- Remote actuation and collaborative performance
