Faux Organa

Melbourne Town Hall, Melbourne
part of Double Venturi with Peter Knight

A musical instrument and art performance object in collaboration with composer Kate Neal.

Created for the Double Venturi: The Current project at Melbourne Town Hall, it is a response to the Grand Organ and the feeling of the faux-baroque style of the interiors.

It comprises 21 recorders, from sopranino to Great Bass, actuated by valves via a wind chest connected to a large industrial air blower. In addition, there are various percussion devices including a table of dangerously vibrating glasses and crockery.
