Interstellar pipes

The pipe organ in the Hans Zimmer's soundtrack for Interstellar was one of my favourite parts of the film.

They are an amazing instrument and the video above explains some of the reasons why I love them. Another is their dynamic range, as the opening note of Also Sprach Zarathustra demonstrates -- you mightn't hear it without large speakers.

I recorded the organ at St Peter's church here in Leeton for my For 100 Years project, which celebrated the centenary of the town and also that instrument.

Local maestro Dom Vella recorded two parts, one of which I've used in the video below for the screenings and another that is sitting on my desktop awaiting the right moment.
