The Apollonia is a mechanized organ and music machine. It was built in 1926 and resides in the Musical Instrument Museum (Phoeniz, Arizona). It takes up the space of an entire wall

Tech notes: this is a stereo recording made with a Sony PCM-D50 (onboard mics, close XY pattern). I failed to notice that the low-cut filter was engaged on the recorder, so the full bass range of the instrument was not properly captured. You'll need to hear it for yourself in person!

    Reminds me of the music in some of Fellini's films.

    This is fantastic! Look for it in a future episode of "In Poor Taste".
