Designed by Tim Hawkinson, the Uberorgan is currently on display at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles. Video after the break. Here’s how it works:

The Überorgan uses an array of photosensors to read dashes of black paint as they move past on a 250 foot long roll of laminated paper. Each dash activates a valve, channeling pressurized air through a sort of trumpet thing, which sounds until the dash ends (much like a player piano)
