about

Organ Reworks was inspired by a series of concerts celebrating the centenary of Olivier Messiaen's birth in 2008.
The church acoustics and the powerful output of the pipe organ are real world tools not accessible to the common artist due to obvious impracticalities.
Hence the necessity to adapt and update.
The source material was gathered from old public domain vinyl records available in the www.europarchive.org and from actual recordings of the great pipe organ of "Igreja da Senhora da Conceição" in Porto, Portugal.
Ultimately, this material was shaped into an imaginary reality, emphasized by the artificial nature of the digital medium.
