Charlemagne Palestine - Cathédrale De Strasbourg VINYL LP EM010

The latest transmission from Joachim Montessuis curated Erratum imprint sees the return of the inimitable Charlemagne Palestine, casting a spellbinding invocation of organ ritual music. 

A self-described “maximalist composer”, Palestine originally developed his organ technique in 1964 with a debut performance as an organist in New York City, after decades of recognition since the 1960s, as a leading Minimalist composer and visual artist. He has long been fascinated by drones, rituals, repetition, extended duration and the physicality of sound. And this double LP set truly is a trance-indulging meditation, inexorably thickening and deepening, glowering and resolving and slowly clearing, exulting in the sonority of massed pipes.

This 70 minute organ concert was recorded in 2012 in Strasbourg Cathedral during the "Transes" symposium at HEAR. This was a unique performance in the cathedral's history and an important performance for Charlemagne Palestine, showing him at his best, slowly developing a wild crescendo and filling the gigantic space with his own ritual full of trance and ecstasy.
