The videos represent highlights of some of the instruments restored by me. Of particular interest is the Seeburg upright Pipe Organ Orchestra - an instrument that originally had a remote roll player system, which was missing when I purchased it, replaced by a midi player system. This concession to originality thus allowed me to arrange and compose any music I chose for it. It is basically a four pipe rank full-orchestra orchestrion in a slightly larger case than a Seeburg style "H", with far more musical versatility. It was evidently originally a custom-ordered instrument, having a very late serial number (placing it at a 1928 manufacture).
Also shown in the videos: Seeburg style E with xylophone, Ampico player piano and a Dutch street Organ. The Here and Now Show will give you an enjoyable tour of my Sound Sculpture Ensemble. You can read more about it under the SoundSculpture Tab above.
