Saturday 25 April
St Mary Redcliffe Church, 15:00 — 16:15
An afternoon of deep and focussed listening at St Mary Redcliffe, as Stockholm-based artist Ellen Arkbro presents an exclusive performance of her work ‘Chordalities’ on the church’s impressive Harrison & Harrison organ
Orginally written for the composer Hampus Lindwall to perform at St Mary’s Church in Walthamstow, London in June 2019, this will be the first time ‘Chordalities’ has been performed by Arkbro herself. Of the piece she says ‘This sound is meant to be experienced as one solitary object,periodically shifting from without,while remaining unchangingly solid within’.
Ellen Arkbro (b. 1990, Stockholm) is a composer and sound-artist primarily working with intervallic harmony in just intonation. Her work includes long duration compositions for ensembles as well as electronic sound environments in the form of installations and live- performances, employing both traditional acoustic instruments as well as digital algorithmic sound synthesis.
