Meet Orgel, the Organ Reimagined

From The Creators Project:

Orgel is an art installation and musical piece by composer Ida Lundén and set designer Johanna Mårtensson which challenges the concept of traditional instruments by using non-traditional materials. Made anew from contemporary materials and values inherent, it transforms our preconceptions of how we define ceremonial and musical spaces.

Essentially, Orgel, which exists at Fylkingen, a space in Stockholm, is a contemporary version of a traditional organ; where plastic tubes and objects make up seven wind instruments and sound is produced via compressed air. Interestingly, each pipe (and organ) produces a different sound. Orgel celebrates the use of ordinary, cheap materials—shaping them into something of worth. It challenges our preconceptions of using simple, used materials to create dramatic ritualistic experiences and sound that would have once only belonged within a church or ceremonial space.
