    Brace for Impact (2020)

    Organ with electronics

    Brace for Impact (2020) for organ & electronics

    Brace for Impact is an arm wrestling match between the organ and a pre-recorded track with electric guitars. Both instruments share cliché-like characteristics such as loudness, and tendency for performers to use the instrument to “show off”. Here they go for the ultimate match.
    Extra special thanks to Stephen O’Malley who generously took time to record the guitar parts with me in Paris. Additional guitar riff samples from Meshuggah.

     

    HANNE LIPPARD (b. 1984)

    Neinternet (2019)

    Organ with electronics

    Neinternet (2019) for organ and electronics
    Commissioned by Cory Arcangel & Hampus Lindwall for Art Night London 2019, curated by Helen Nisbet. Neinternet is a narrative piece that deals with the unbearable frustration of not having a functioning internet connection. The title, being a combination of “nein” and “internet”, refers to the notoriously infamous German internet. The narrator’s thoughts are drifting farther away, wandering in the boredom of waiting, while the organ is mimicking the sound of a 1990s dial-up modem.

    Film and organ
    The film “Minor Daemon” (2021) by Jon Rafman (Canada) and organ improvisation by Hampus Lindwall (Belgium/France), exploring the complete soundscape of the new Rieger organ.


    Film Synopsis:
    Set in a surreal dystopia that feels like the deranged fever-dream of Hieronymus Bosch if he had grown up on 4chan, the film traces the intersecting fortunes of two young men, Billy and Minor Daemon, who share an extraordinary gift for virtual reality gaming. Billy, a spoiled frat boy, is the top dog at an elite prep school. Minor Daemon, abandoned at birth, is a guileless asthmatic raised in a child labour compound. After a nightmarish sequence of events, the two are incarcerated at the same supermax penitentiary. They join forces and catapult their VR prison team to the league championships, where a victory will secure their freedom. After a devastating defeat in the grand finals, the two men then plan an intricate escape. Billy ends up betraying Minor Daemon during a bungled prison break, and flees to a remote pleasure planet. There Billy climbs the ladder of an intergalactic criminal underworld, as Minor Daemon suffers through the horrors of prison life. When he’s finally released years later, Minor Daemon, obsessed with vengeance, tracks Billy down to the violent alien planet. In a place where dreams are paid for in blood, Billy and Daemon face-off in an ultimate showdown that will seal their fate.

    Transports de joie / The End Hymn

     

    A Saami Requiem is a music and dance production by concert organist Gunnar Idenstam and Saami artist Ola Stinnerbom. The piece is a spiritual mass in which the audience is invited to ”the other world” , the world of death. A world that is inhabited by wondrous and mythical creatures and animals. Here comes only the one who has met death. In the Saami tradition this person is a Nåjd, a Shaman in the Saami tradition, a spiritual leader, who can do this journey and return to our world. The music and the yoik describe a journey from our world to the world of death and the return to our world. Our guide is Ola Stinnerbom. The organ is included as a link to the Christian tradition, because the two traditions have much in common. Heaven and Earth, Fire, Water and Air meet in the music, and the organ is reinforced by guitars and percussion. Some of the percussion sounds are samples from Schaman drums made by Ola Stinnerbom after ancient models. The music unites folk music and yoik with French cathedral tradition and rock.

    MADELEINE ISAKSSON
    Infiltrations, 2022

     

    The music of the Swedish, but Paris-based, composer, Madeleine Isaksson, is at the core of this concert, and not least the premiere of her new chamber work, Infiltrations where the concert hall organ mixes with electric guitar and acoustic instruments. Isaksson's music is characterized by her clear, poetic touch, which can often be heard in her chiseled sounds and long, musical lines. Regarding the almost 20-year-old work Fibres, Isaksson talks about the thread as a musical metaphor. A long, drawn-out musical line becomes surrounded and ornamented by the various instruments. In the new work, Isaksson's choice of organ and electric guitar in the instrumentation is tonally motivated, to bind the ensemble together.
