Anna von Hausswolff
Together with Hradby Samoty we are pleased to welcome Swedish composer and musician Anna von Hausswolff with her new special project – an immersive, multi-channel organ performance. Anna von Hausswolff’s fifth album All Thoughts Fly eschews all sounds in favour of pure, undisturbed organ. The result is an experience of deep melancholic beauty, as von Hasswolff’s compositions fluidly move between calmness and drama, harmony and dissonance. Drawing on minimalism and working with meantone temperament tunings, this music – like the music of contemporaries like Sarah Davachi or Kali Malone – showcases the organ in an entirely new light. The sounds are still deeply moving and spiritual, yet freed from their religious context, able to find their audience and meaning even centuries after the instruments were constructed and assembled. Unmissable if you’re interested in contemporary drone music.
