Various - Calliopes, Band Organs, And Other Mechanical Instruments download album

Mechanical organs include the barrel organ, water organ, and Orchestrion. These are controlled by mechanical means such as pinned barrels or book music. Little barrel organs dispense with the hands of an organist and bigger organs are powered in most cases by an organ grinder or today by other means such as an electric motor. A large modern organ typically has three or four keyboards (manuals) with five octaves (61 notes) each, and a two-and-a-half octave (32-note) pedal board. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart called the organ the "King of instruments". Some of the biggest instruments have 64-foot pipes (a foot here means "sonic-foot", a measure quite close to the English measurement unit) and it sounds to an 8 Hz frequency fundamental tone.

Mechanical organs include the barrel organ, water organ, and Orchestrion. Main article: Pipe organ. 4th century AD "Mosaic of the Female Musicians" showing a woman playing organ from a Byzantine villa in Maryamin, Syria. The pipe organ is the largest musical instrument.

Many of these mechanical calliopes retained keyboards, allowing a live musician to play them if needed. During this period, compressed air began to replace steam as the vehicle of producing sound. Most calliopes disappeared in the mid-20th century, as steam power was replaced with other power sources. Only a few calliopes have survived, and these are rarely played. American rock band Kiss used a calliope on their song 'Flaming Youth' from their 1976 album Destroyer. Tom Waits' 2002 release Blood Money features a track written for trumpet and calliope. Vernian Process' 2011 single "Something Wicked (That Way Went)" features a sampled calliope throughout.
