Concert December 13, 2009 - laptops and Fokker organ

Concert | December 13th 2009, 11.00 hours | BAM Hall - Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ, Amsterdam

Pimp My Organ!

In this concert, the Fokker organ will be operated by laptops. Several composers will work with live electronics in their pieces. All of them (Marc Sabat, Danny de Graan, Rozalie Hirs and Jos Zwaanenburg) composed a work for the Fokker organ operated via MIDI. A composition by Conlon Nancarrow will also be performed, with electronics and in a more just tuning. Using extra digital stops and other new electronic possibilities of this renovated acoustic 31-tone instrument, the Fokker organ will be expanded and pimped with many new sounds.



Tickets can be ordered by the Muziekgebouw.
