ePhil: John Chantler
part of Lux aeterna
First electroacoustic minimalism, then a downright physically overwhelming tumult of sound: in the works of John Chantler, these apparent opposites are not exclusive of each other, but rather complementary to a dramatic sound trip. For his concert in the series »ePhil«, Chantler works exclusively with sounds from the brand new organ of the Elbphilharmonie.
Host: Elbphilharmonie Hamburg
Bleeps, clonks and drones - contemporary electronic music goes above and beyond the familiar listening experience of acoustic music. This year’s ePhil season presents exciting artists from the ambient and experimental electronica fields. Performed in the stimulating atmosphere of the resonanzraum in St. Pauli, these concerts offer a chance to discover the sacral and/or industrial sound worlds created by four exceptional musicians.
The series starts with the upcoming young Canadian composer Kara-Lis Coverdale and her contemplative, elegiac soundscapes. Inspired by the industrial aesthetic of Russian electroacoustic music, the analogue ambient compositions created by the Lumisokea duo is a shade darker. Australian-born John Chantler focuses on the new Elbphilharmonie organ in his performance, alienating its sounds to create towering resonance waves. Last but not least, witness world-famous pop star Lloyd Cole exploring exciting new electronic territory.
