A Conversation for Pipe Organs
One More Component
Steve K. Started conversation Mar 13, 2009
I signed up some time back for a tour of the pipe organ at Rice University in Houston, Texas:
As you can hopefully see above, the room is very tall and narrow, only about as wide as the organ pipes. The tour guide/organist gave a demo of how he could adjust wall dampers near the ceiling to change the acoustics of the organ/room, in particular the time a note would "hold" after release (I think). So the room itself is part of the instrument.
