Mortier 91 Key Art Deco Dance Orchastra
It’s 1947, you’re dressed in your finest attire, ready for an evening of socializing and leisure. You find yourself amongst the crowd sipping wine, mingling and dancing the night away to the music produced by a machine like this. This Mortier was built in the late 1940’s for the Crystal Palace Dance Hall in Belgium. It features an art deco case and a 91-note orchestra specifically designed for indoor use. It was completely restored at a cost of $150,000 by renown organ builder Johnny Verbeich. Its majestic sound is not produced digitally but rather with mechanical movements and real instruments.
