Closer Music Festival #5 Charlemagne Palestine

The 5th edition of Closer Music invited the discovery of rare gems and the great musical talents of tomorrow! To close the festival, Closer Music took over the rare setting of the Eglise du Saint Esprit alongside Les Inspirations Visibles (a project by Hampus Lindwall and Stephen O' Malley) to present a unique performance of "Schingen Blängen" by the stellar Charlemagne Palestine.

Charlemagne Palestine is a stellar figure in contemporary music.

Since the 1960s he has begun to develop an alternative approach to electronic sounds, the human voice, the pianoforte and the organ. In the early seventies he created a timbre adventure process especially for pipe organs that dialogues between each unique organ in its unique architecture, and entitled this work SCHLINGEN BLÄNGEN. For many years he has developed countless versions of this process for organs all over the world. He calls these processes 'ORGAN CONTINUUMSSS'.
