Stereo Field-recording of a kermis organ in a small German town while a funfair. The recorded selfplaying organ machine was build in 1904 by a Bavarian organ builder. It works with folded papers that have holes to code the music. Outside you see a barocklike design with angels drumming and a moving conductor in the middle etc. Each musical play has always about 6 to 12 music tracks. The music are folksongs or popular music at the beginning of the 20th century. I separated the tracks by cutting and converted them from wav to mp3. The first part of this track I named "Promenade". The second part (where the rhythm changes) has the title "Gluehwuermchen". Its a folksong about a little beetle that glows with its bottom in the dark.
