Music & Me -- Part 5

Had a great time at the Orlando Maker Faire October 22nd and 23rd. The pipe organ proved to be very popular with several hundred people stopping by to ask about how it worked and how it was made.

 It was especially popular with the kids.

Also, I was interviewed by Caleb Kraft of Make Magazine. Here is a link to the interview.

My friend Jim, who has been helping me, and our wives came along. Here you can see the Maker of Merit award that we got.

Finally, after the interview Caleb Kraft suggested that adding LEDs to the organ indicating the note that was playing would make it more interesting to watch. I did that and here is a YouTube video showing the newly added LEDs.
