Re: What is the significance of Ganondorf's organ in OoT?

I know it somewhat references such villains like 'Phantom of the Opera',
which has been lifted for many stories and films already.
We should know by now everything in Zelda has some meaning, even if well hidden...
So what is this?
Is this Ganon's substitute of a musical instrument that seems to reoccur in the Zelda Series? Is it just for dramatic effect?
I'd love to hear any thoughts, views or theories on the concept... Thanks!
It's quite possible that it is there to look awesome.
My theory, though, is this: OoT is all about the magical power of music. Perhaps the organ is one of the sources of Ganondorf's magic other than the triforce of power? Then when you fight him, he uses this power to hide the organ somewhere so that his power continues as he fights you. He is playing the organ to generate as much power as possible for the fight with you.
This is my idea, anyway. I know it is farfetched, but think about it!
By the way, did anyone notice that the happy mask guy in MM uses the same organ? A CONNECTION?????
