Pierre Lauwers Posted June 7, 2007 Share Posted June 7, 2007 As it is blantantly evident, all organs, whatever quality may have been built in, are to be replaced every forty years in order to adress "King customer today's needs", maybe it is time to reconsider the whole thing after a "sustainable growth" perspective. Oak etc are precious woods we should not provide lightheartly, while something like an electric/ electronics parts-filled console is a very, very polluting waste. As far as lead is concerned, well, we all know it should be replaced with something else. So cardboard, Gyproc, recyclable pipe materials (OK, lead is!) and fourth-rate wood should be used; we could calculate, for example, windchests to be eaten by worms in about forty years. This point is of peculiar importance to organ advisers; they also should care no console exceeds 50 kilogrammes. Why? The reason is quite simple: imagine Mr Advisor walks in the nave while the folks on the organ loft, say in west-end position, are busy removing the console or a big windchest from a 40 years old organ that is to be dropped on the scrapyard. -"Mr advisor, good morning". -"Moïen' " -"Would you mind please walk just two metres towards the right, please ?" -" OK, here I am, but WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW" (Game over) Pete flowers :angry: Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
