Organ Donor Opus 2: We Need Bottles

Please keep some glass bottles (any size) to be used for Organ Donor Opus 2 (a Sol Diego project). The next organ will have pipes made out of bottles partially filled with fluid. Hopefully water. Or permanently filled in with resin. Still working on that part. Bottles to Michelle Thompson.
Friends, Burners, Countrymen, lend me your ears.
I come to burn Organ Donor 1, not to praise it!
The evil that men do lives after them,
The good is oft burned with their art on the playa!
So let it be with Opus 1. 
The noble Regional Coordinators
Hath told you Larry was ambitious,
If it were so, it was a grievous and most productive fault,
And grievously hath Larry answer'd it, for look at all we have done.
Here, under leave of Regional Coordinators upon the Midway,
Let us burn the Organ Donor Opus 1 (somehow).
And upon that burning, let us build a new Organ!
Let us bring forth an Opus 2!
With pipes of glass. Yes glass.
"Why glass?" Larry asks.
Because glass sings.
Sings with the power of wind and water.
Sings because of physics, because of strain.
And where, o where, shall we obtain these glass pipes?
These vases? These resonating objects?
These... bottles?
Ah yes! Bring forth the bottles!
Bottles of ale, bottles of wine,
Bottles of sake and small mouthed stein,
Bottles of fireball, whiskey, and rye,
Bottles of fermented apple pie. 
Bring forth the piccolo, the demi, the magnum,
Bring forth the Methuselah, the Solomon, the Sovereign!
Anything really, that makes a sound,
When fluid is added the right key will be found.
Bring forth the bottles!
And they will be racked.
For Opus 2 will be built
Upon consciousness, sacked.
