Organ Reframed launches with three new works composed and performed by artists known for redefining their fields: Anna von Hausswolff renowned for her gothic organ creations “Anna von Hausswolff is reinventing rock ’n roll, producing work that is radical yet familiar and shimmering with invention.” – The Observer, enigma Abul Mogard a synth visionary “the music cuts through all the grime of a developed perception and leaves its essence in pure form.” – Headphone Commute and Ipek Gorgun a composer of energetic, textural masterpieces“patiently stitching together a whole sonic universes” – Pitchfork. All three works for organ, electronics and the London Contemporary Orchestra will push Union Chapel’s sonic possibilities to the extreme.
