The proper term for this practice in pianos is called "stretched tuning". en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stretched_tuning

comment What are the most important pieces of equipment for a beginning DJ to have?
I'm sorry, but questions that don't have specific answers, such as asking people for their opinions, aren't acceptable within the guidelines of this site. This is not your traditional discussion forum.

comment Linking organ pedals to a keyboard
I think the first link I sent you to (costing US $550) IS the route to the least expensive project. Good luck.

comment Why do melodies have harmonies?
Your assertion that "every melody has chords which most people would agree on" is certainly not the case. If you study jazz or classical music, you will understand that what jazz musicians and classical composers often do is to figure out how to harmonize a given melody with many different chord progressions. In jazz, this is called "chord substitution".

comment Why do melodies have harmonies?
The answers to your question lie in studying the music theory of what is called "Common Practice" in the history of Western music. It is usually the subject of a two-year curriculum in music colleges. You can certainly study it on your own out of textbooks, but it is not something that can be explained in a couple of short posts on a site like this one.
