The Organ is a new physical application for performing video in real time. The user is playing a midi keyboard to control and explore the video image loops that are projected on the screen on top of the keyboard. With each keystroke, a corresponding visual element is displayed on top of the last one that was played as a new layer. Just as in sound each note is being added to the complete harmony, in the video organ each visual element is being added to the previous ones, creating a new composition in which the elements are blending into each other. The users are not constructing their visual experience in a traditional time line, rather, they do so in a more musical, harmonic way. The vibrating ghost of the previous visual elements is still there decaying slowly long after the key was stroke.
