102 seconds of an Aeolian player organ in Geiringer Hall

My friend Ed is a bit of an organologist and one day, while we were both still students at UCSB, he cranked up the old Aeolian player organ in Geiringer Hall and threw in a roll. Ed was planning on giving a talk (or something) about the organ and needed thirty or seconds of a recording to play for the audience. Enter Andre with his crappy camera mic.
