Organ & electronics – 3 recording sessions and 1 concert so far…

July 26, 2022 @ Paul-Gerhardt-Kirche, Berlin-Schöneberg

The first recording session with Thomas Noll and myself took place in a modern church in Berlin. I performed on the Haken Audio Continuum Fingerboard and the Landscape Audio Stereo Field, deciding not to use any aleatoric fills of a dedicated modular setup. The Cracklebox did have a small appearance though.

Session number two featured the duo Benedict Hansjosten (Cello) and Benedict Simon (Organ). My quadruple-setup consisted of the Moog Claravox plus modular voice, the Continuum and the STEIM Cracklebox.

For session three I traveled to Denstedt by Weimar. My musical partners were Michael von Hintzenstern and Jakob Dietz. This was the first time the fully mechanical Liszt-organ joined forces with a Theremin 🙂 After a duo with Cracklebox and organ I also explored the synchronous combination of Continuum and Stereo Field for the first time. They are perfect partners.

On Friday, September 2nd, I performed in public together with Thomas Noll as part of the Organo Vino festival. We had a good sized and enthusiastic crowd at the Paul-Gerhardt-Kirche in Berlin Schöneberg. More concerts to come in this configuration for sure!
