Organ Acusticum is a massive musical instruments that adorns the stage of Studio Acusticum concert venue in Piteå. RISE Interactive in Piteå (formerly called Interactive Institute) has developed an application for the organ that allows visitors to experience the instrument in new ways, regardless of age or musical background. Visitors can, for example, sing or play an instrument into a microphone and hear the organ directly translate it to the organ music. Oregano can give any sound source tonal content by adapting the sound to a tonic scale.


Controlled through a tablet, the organ can play back recorded tracks, and change the tempo of these. The organ can accompany musicians and opens up for new exciting musical performances with the organ at Studio Acusticum.


– Through Oregano we’ve made this impressive instrument accessible and we hope it will provide inspiration for creating new musical expressions and experiences.
