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. This track has the title "Berliner Luft".

    Nice idea - but the record is bad... look at the waveform - it's overmodulated... and my loudspeakers don't like such things... and my ears, too.

    I only read the title of file - and not your own comment, I'm sorry. But now I can't delete my last comment.

    Nice, but the name of the song is "Berliner Luft". The text of the corus is "That is the air of Berlin ...", of germany of course and Berlin means really the city, the capital of germany.
    The song is composed by Paul Lincke in 1904.
