"Two years ago I was demonstrating a pipe organ to a kids' group. For events like these, I have a collection of discarded pipes and parts for a 'hands-on' approach. I had disassembled a reed pipe and handed the boot of the pipe to the boy next to me. He accidentally dropped it on the tile floor. It made a fabulous noise! This inspired me to write a disk of music using discarded organ parts in unconventional ways. I started collecting scrap organ parts to use with percussion mallets. On the disk, these sounds are combined with the natural sonorities of the organ." - A. D. M.
