Here’s an out-of-this-world addition to the videos and goods that have helped ease our ever-growing impatience for the release of the new Star Wars movie: a man playing his rendition of the Main Title from the Star Wars Symphonic Suite on an enormous, spinning pipe organ.

Jelani Eddington, a lawyer and organist, is playing this iconic piece on a 1927 Sanfilippo Wurlitzer pipe organ at the Sanfilippo Wurlitzer concert hall in Barrington, Illinois. Eddington explained that it is the largest restored theater pipe organ in the world, and one of his absolute favorites.

Using both hands and feet, he dexterously sounds the five-keyboard organ of 8,000 pipes ranging from the size of a pencil to 32 feet long.

His inspiration to play this piece came from the first time he ever heard a theater organ at around the age of 9. He recalled that it was playing the Star Wars theme, and instantly fell in love.

The coolest part is, the pipe organ is mounted on a rotating platform, allowing audiences to see from all angles. The fact that it spins definitely helps take the whole performance to galactic levels!
