About the Event

One of the world’s most sought-after organists, James McVinnie’s boundless approach to music has led him to collaborations with a wide variety of artists across musical genres such as Nico Muhly, Squarepusher, Shara Nova (My Brightest Diamond), Oneohtrix Point Never and Bryce Dessner.  McVinnie will be joined by London-based electronics duo Darkstar for a full evening of new music for electronics and organ performed on Northrop’s spectacular refurbished Aeolian-Skinner organ. McVinnie and Darkstar will explore how synthesis techniques from electronic music can be applied to the organ, using functionality, subtlety, automation and performance to create new music that evolves through Darkstar’s electronic experimentation and McVinnie’s rare versatility on the organ.
