Japanese Organ in Shiroishi City

PostWed May 12, 2004 4:18 pm

just found a link to a Japanese organ, built by Jubal/Japan for Cube, a multipurpose hall:
I could imagine that the console has the right measures and features for a universal HW organ ;-))
Instrument description and specification are pretty detailed. The largest pipes have dimensions like a smokestack (see pictures of installation).
What striked me was the extensive usage of the swell pedal showing some exaggerated effect (see Boellmann Suite Gothique Priere mp3). It doesn't seem to be a benefit for a swell pedal to react very fast. If there is no inertia it sounds more like a Hammond organ player shaping every chord with a up and down swell. Or am I wrong?
It´s a virtue to be well-tempered.
German speaking readers are invited to visit for info about HW subjects.

Don't suppose anyone has a few years to spend to sample the Liverpool (Anglican) Cathedral organ do they?

I went to a recital there a few years ago given by Ian Tracey and it was just mind blowing - the range of sounds it can produce when provoked by a skilled organist is just unbelievable.
