Gorham Street is stridently working to commission its first project. Yet lately, we find another project idea co-occupies our design plate of assignments.
Therefore, starting with the cabinet organ for collaborative use concept, we offer the possibility of an instrument with a 53-note keyboard and a 27-note pull-down pedal.
The stop list is that found here, roughly based on the third organ I built, an instrument that combined the intimacy of Tannenberg with the color of Clicquot, yet now introduces the mid-nineteenth-century influence of Ducroquet.
We welcome your thoughts.
