Vanpaemel, Jasper: About Elephants 

 

 

Basic information

 

Notes

  • Program notes: 

    About Elephants came forward in the winter of 2014 after many improvisational sessions on the H. Laureys Organ, built in Heverlee, Belgium. It explores different sound combinations by searching for unique and fast register changes, which where often very surprising. Using this technique, it was possible to bypass traditional dynamic limitations, converting the instrument into a very expressive and flamboyant medium, with close references to modern synthesizers and the African savannah.

  • Technical specs: 

    Depending on the type of concert organ, there is an assistant required to perform all register changes. In the video on the H. Laureys Organ, the performer was able to do all changes himself, as the easy interface allowed him. If there are any difficulties interpreting the score (with some non-translated remarks in Dutch), please contact the composer.
