An abandoned Wurlitzer Funmaker electric organ which had been exposed to the elements for a number of weeks. Rain has distorted the sound of many of the keys given the organ a very strange and irregular tone.

It was built onto wooden stand which raised the foot pedals to an unnatural height. It was accompanied by a skeletal chair. Various found and created objects have been set on top.

The organ was rigged to play a slow, minimal beat continuously for the duration of the exhibition. It was also played by the public and by invited individuals for special performances.
