When we hear the phrase “pipe organ,” most of us think of a large instrument, likely in a church, with at least two keyboards (or more) as well as a pedal board, and great pipes reaching up to the ceiling. We think of deep, rich music.
But a man in Belarus has built a pipe organ of paper and cardboard that works! It’s tiny — just 18 regular-sized keys, and is powered by the air escaping from an ordinary balloon. People are amazingly creative!
Read about it, see a video, and hear it being played, at this link to the website of Classical MPR (Minnesota Public Radio.)
This is so cool. Here in Spain we saw a pipe organ made of marble in a church. Also very interesting.
