Benvinguts al Projecte Orgue Celrà.

La seva escola pot autoconstruir un orgue com aquest. No necessita més que les eines comunes que hi ha a la seva aula de taller i el materials que fàcilment trobarà al comerç local. I molta imaginació i inventiva. Pot integrar el disseny i la fabricació d'aquests orgues a les assignatures de física, música i taller.
No li vendrem plànols ni cap kit de montatge. No li donarem mides exactes ni cap taula amb resultats. L'encoratgem a que Vostè amb els seus alumnes facin els càlculs oportuns, trobin les millors solucions a tots els problemes i donin el millor acabat possible al producte. Considerem que l'objectiu pedagògic és la resolució de problemes, i no pas la fabricació en si mateixa de l'orgue.

El Projecte Orgue Celrà no té cap interès econòmic. El convidem a participar al fòrum per compartir els seus avanços. Un equip d'organistes, d'orgueners, luthiers, professors de música, i músics professionals donen consell al fòrum.

¿Per on comencem?



Welcome to the “Celrà’s Organ Project".

Your school can self-construct an organ just like this. You don’t need anything but the most common tools you have in your atelier, the materials you will easily find in your local shop and lots of imagination and creativity.

You can integrate the design and fabrication of the organs in the physics, music and technology classes. We will not sell you any plans or assembly kits. We will not provide you the exact measurements or any table with the results. We encourage you and your students to make the appropriate calculations, to find the best solutions to all problems and to finish the product the best you can.

We believe that the true pedagogic objective is the problems resolution and not only the process of making the organ.

The “Celrà’s Organ Project” does not have any economic interest. We invite you to participate in our forum to share your advances with us. A team of organists, luthiers (instrument makers), music teachers and professional musicians give advice on the forum.

Where do we start?



Bienvenidos al Proyecto Órgano Celrà.

Su escuela puede autoconstruirse un órgano como este. Solo necesitará las herramientas básicas de cualquier aula taller y unos materiales que puede adquirir en su comercio habitual. Añádale imaginación e inventiva. Puede integrar el diseño y la fabricación de pequeños órganos en las asignaturas de física, música y taller.

No pretendemos venderle kits de montaje, ni planos, ni ofrecerle medidas exactas y tablas de resultados. Le animamos a que profesores y alumnos diseñen y calculen. Que solucionen todos los problemas constructivos y que consigan un aspecto final envidiable.

El Proyecto Órgano Celrà no tiene ningún interés lucrativo. Le invitamos a participar en el foro y compartir sus dudas y sus ideas con los demàs. Un equipo de organistas, luthiers, músicos profesionales y profesores aconsejan en el foro.

¿Por donde se empieza?



Herzlich Willkommen zum Orgelprojekt Celrà !

Ihre Schule kann eine Orgel bauen !! Wie bitte? Richtig, eine Orgel. Sie brauchen lediglich Werkzeuge die sowieso in Ihrer Schulwerkstatt vorhanden sind. Alle benötigten Materialen finden Sie ohne Probleme in jedem Bauhaus.

Jetzt fehlt nur noch Vorstellungskraft & Initiative, aber daran sollte es ja nicht scheitern.

Die Herstellung dieser Orgel lässt sich bestens in ihre verschiedenen Unterrichtsfächer eingliedern, sei es Physik, Musik....

Wir bieten Ihnen weder eine Zeichnung noch einen Montagekit an. Auch genaue Abmessungen und Ergebnistafeln gibt es bei uns nicht. Wir ermutigen Sie dazu mit Ihren Schülern die zugehörigen Berechnungen durchzuführen, die besten Lösungen für auftretende Probleme zu finden und die Orgel zu gut wie möglich zu beenden. Wir sind der Meinung dass das wichtigste pädagogische Ziel die Lösung der auftretenden Konstruktions- und Koordinationsprobleme darstellt. Die Herstellung der Orgel eignet sich bestens um dieses Lernziel zu erreichen.

Das Orgelprojekt Celrà hat keinerlei Profitstreben. Vielmehr laden wir Sie ein in unserem Forum teilzunehmen. Ein Team von Organisten, Orgelbaueren, Luthiers, Musiklehrern und Musikern geben in unserem Forum hilfreiche Ratschläge.

Wie geht's los? Ganz einfach:

Cammisa Forrest

Cammisa Forrest, an artist from Los Angeles (CA), has built a funny organ for his performances.
To those of you who don't know how to build valves for your organs, I suggest you to read and you'll find a smart solution: using mousetraps!. Cammisa doesn't care much about the keyboard or perfect pipe tuning. However, she manages to create a very suggestive and enigmatic sound by using pinewood pipes. The horizontal fixing of tubes on each side is far interesting.

     "I do not use a key to actuate the valves because I only had three months to make the organ. I had never built an instrument like this before. I've made other, experimental instruments. But the organ was the first 'real' instrument that I wanted to build. I also made the organ entirely by myself. No one told me anything about keys. 
The pipes are built on Montre pipe specifications. I looked up schematics online, and bought the wood, cut it to size, and put it together with wood glue.

The tubes can be sort of tuned.. I used screws to put the caps on, and if the pipes sound squeaky or off, I use a screw gun to tune it. I didn't build any tuning slots, though.

The blower was originally an industrial shop-vac. I threw it into reverse and attached the tube to the windchest. Voila!
I built a baffled box to muffle the shop-vac. They are much noiser than a traditional blower.

I did eventually buy a proper blower. The blowers I use now are sourced from old IBM copy machines. They were fans that would cool off the copy machines. I daisy chain them together to get the right amount of pressure.

My stops are mousetraps with flexible, clear vinyl glued to the metal. The vinyl plastic creates a sealed barrier. I then pull on strings which are threaded through holes in the top of the windchest to play the organ.

The tubes that connect the windchest to the pipes are the same clear plastic tubes used in a washing machine. They are pretty cheap at the hardware store.

I sourced alot of the material. I did buy white pine, and a few other small things, but sourced almost everything else. The windchest is made from a combination of locust wood and pine. I do not recommend using locust wood! It is very, very, hard, and if you are not perfectly exact while cutting it will splinter in all sorts of terrible ways.

The building process was full of trial and error. I recommend going slowly, and carefully, as you build your organ. Measure everything twice. Find a place where your organ construction can rest, safe and unmolested, for a full day. Building an organ is like building a house. You have to let it settle into itself.

Thank you so much for reaching out to me!
i'm looking forward to learning more about your organ experiments."
