    Here is a beautiful modern case that displays some asymmetry but lacks colour (certainly not a fault).

    Dobson dropped some colour in on this case! Love it. Visually stimulating but the horizontals and the burgundy pipes seem to create a real calm for my eye.

    An interesting photo of an organ case. I suspect the pipes are not blue nor the wood so yellow - but an very interesting concept. The blue and the yellow really vibrate being almost complements on the colour wheel. The photographer is creating a balanced visual composition (avoiding symmetry) - notice how your eye keeps moving around the image. Super photo.

    Some interesting organ cases - The first link said *FORBIDDEN* when opening it.
    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    Thanks everyone

    Thanks everyone all your feedback for the links to colourful organ cases.
    I had hoped for more modern examples but I guess my original post was not very clear.

    Thanks again,
    L

    The remark about the explosion in a pencil box is reminiscent of what an art critic once said about one of Picasso's paintings at a Paris exhibition: "It looks like an explosion in a shingle factory".

    I haven't seen the Disney organ in person, but from pictures, I keep wondering how those pipes stay there. There must be some hidden wire work or something that keeps them from falling over.

    Not far from there is First Congregational, which has an organ that can just about blow you out of your seat. And the pipes up in the gallery look far more stable!! The L.A. area has a number of other notable instruments.

    Added to which, the façade surely cannot provide any unifying or focusing effect to the sound of this instrument.

    Having said this, there is at least one truly musical and aurally stunning Rieger instrument, which was revoiced by Glatter-Götz a few years ago - that at Bamberg Cathedral (Germany). I had the pleasure of playing for a Mass here, a few years ago. I found the instrument to be quite stunning, with many beautiful quieter ranks, in addition to a majestic yet clear tutti.
    Pierre Cochereau rocked, man.
