Musical organs operate on the principle that
reverberating the air within a pipe of given
length will produce a note an
octave above a
tube that is twice its length, and it is this effect
which the Nellophone utilizes to sound its thirty
different notes, from A an
octave below middle
C to D an octave above middle C. With the
musician standing at the instrument's axis, a
slap of the special paddles across
mouth of each tube produces a hauntingly
electronic sound. The tubes range in length
from 6 to 30 feet, and the entire device spans
feet wide by 15 feet high.
