The pipe organ is battery powered and contains 42 pipes. Each pipe is electromechanically actuated by an arduino controller that interprets MIDI signals. Air for the pipes is provided by motorized bellows that can also be hand cranked if desired. MIDI is provided by a raspberry pi with a collection of various MIDI files and is also linked to a keyboard for user interaction.
