New Orchestron Disc – DREHORGEL

Posted by peahix on October 26th, 2016

Hi folks, I’ve been out of the loop for awhile since I broke my wrist, which set me back more than you would think. I’m still recovering (well, as much as I’ve got left to recover, which won’t be 100%), but am back to most of my usual activities now, and I’m eager to finish up some projects that were started before my accident. The first is a new Orchestron disc, with a new Optigan disc to follow shortly.

Now shipping!

DREHORGEL is a newly recorded sound for the Orchestron. It’s a small, hand-cranked street organ that plays punched music rolls, similar to a calliope. The drehorgel featured here is owned by Pat Quilter of Quilter Labs. For our disc, we chose the unique “trill” sound of the drehorgel, which produces repeated notes. Great for playing creepy circus type music!

Here’s a clip of Pea playing the “Happy Birthday” roll on the drehorgel used in the making of this disc:

    Is it possible to make the same disc for Optigan crowd too?
