John Chantler is a musician and organiser living in Stockholm, Sweden. He works with synthesizers, electronics and pipe organs.
His most recent LP — Which Way To Leave? (ROOM40) — charts an unpredictable, highly dynamic course through distorted washes of masses harmonics and passages of spare, alien beauty. This follows Still Light, Outside (1703 Skivbolaget) — an extended suite that combines passages of stark minimalism centred at the bodily invasive extremes of
the pipe organ’s register with striking explosions of colour; massed chords shot through with heavy distortion and electronics that operate according to their own dream logic.
Originally from Australia he spent a decade in London before moving to Sweden where he directs a small festival for ‘other music’ in Stockholm called Edition.
For this concert Chantler will present two new works: Tomorrow is Too Late (originally commissioned by INA-GRM, Paris) and We’re Always at The End.Framträdanden av Yvette Janine Jackson, John Chantler
