    A special audio configuration is being used for the organ in this outdoor amphitheater setting.

    Nelson Dodge with Colin Fowler demonstrating the custom-made blocks used to play up to 23 keys simultaneously for the Lou Harrison Concerto for Organ and Percussion Orchestra. "Having full control of so many stops gave me unparalleled versatility to match the creativity and madness that the composer intended. I wondered how this digital organ would handle playing 23 pitches simultaneously--flawlessly as it turned out...it didn't even blink!" Colin Fowler
