ORGAN FOR THE SENSES



 

ORGAN FOR THE SENSES

at the Spreckels Organ Pavilion

Saturday, May 27, 8 - 10 PM

ADA accessible. Free, no reservation required

 

For this year’s concert, curator Alan F Jones (Laminal Audio, Marginal Frequency) will select regional and nationally renowned contemporary musicians to create works for the world’s largest outdoor pipe organ. Each 10 minute composition will explore the physical properties of the organ itself. Vibrationally driven instead of melodically driven works take the stage. Many compositions feature inherent electronic elements, and electronics-as-accompaniment, exploring how the organ functions as a massive analogue synthesizer.

Recordings of the Season I of Organ for the Senses, directed by Samuel Dunscombe will be available on vinyl LP released on Marginal Frequency.
