Revisiting the physical and acoustic principles of organ pipes, the instrument is composed of an airblower, a bellow,several flutes and their own accessories. Like a prepared instrument, each flute operates its own sound mecanism (latex, reeds, foil,…) . An electronic system opens and closes air valves, proposing a sound composition. Furthermore, it can be played during live performances in many ways, by adjusting the valves and mouth bevels, as well as computer MIDI inputs.
