I just became aware of Cameron Carpenter, a passionate and virtuous US organ outlaw. In the talk he explains the intimate relationship between the artist and the instrument. Which turns out to be quite difficult because no organ is like the other. On the quest to present the best experience to his audience he is designing a new virtual organ with 5 keyboards and an extended pedal board.
