organ reframed

Union Chapel, 7–9 October

Organ Reframed – three days of film, intimate solo sets, improvisations and larger scale commissions

Based around Union Chapel’s 1877 organ, designed and built for the space, the weekend festival brings an experimental approach to this extraordinary instrument.

With the organ at its centre the festival presents a varied programme that will release it from its traditional roots. Organ Reframed will challenge perceptions of what this instrument is capable of.

James McVinnie, London Contemporary Orchestra, Craig Armstrong, Fennesz, Mark Fell, Philip Jeck, Simon Scott, Irene Buckley, Robert Ames, Laura Moody, Ed Dowie, Laetitia Sadier, Angele David-Guillou, Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch, Charles Matthews, Claire M Singer, John Beaumont, The Eternal Chord, Bill Thompson, Alex Groves, Chaines and Catherine Lamb.
