Hazy Horizons: Organ installation and performance

“Hazy Horizons” is an event that reflects on architectural qualities of music, and explores musical characteristics of architecture through the pipe organ – an instrument intimately tied to its development.

The event focuses on the idea of the “organ installation” by the German composer Eva-Maria Houben, presented alongside Eva-Maria’s pieces written for the organ, piano, and other instruments. The live performance by the author will be joined by Sasha Elina (flute, voice).

Over the course of a single evening, the event will present an exploration of a space through the sound of a pipe organ, crafted as an installation employing small weights placed on the keyboard. The work offers an intimate encounter with the organ, inviting the audience to experience it as an integral resonant architectural element of the church.

Eva-Maria explains: “The listener may walk in the church, have a seat here and there, or leave the location (and return). They will find their ways of listening: in this particular room, with this particular organ, and its streams of sound, air, wind.”

The event is produced by Music Space Architecture with the support of the Richard Thomas Foundation.
