John Cage Organ Art Project Halberstadt

Short facts

  • Halberstadt

Halberstadt's musical history also includes a totally "crazy" project, namely a 639-year implementation of the organ piece ORGAN²/ASLSP by the American composer and avant-garde artist John Cage.

This project is crazy in the sense of "not being in its usual place" because it does not meet the traditional expectations of music lovers of a concert, such as melody and rhythm, or even being able to listen to it in its entirety. However, if you listen with open ears and an open mind, you will be able to experience a time and sound experience of a very special kind in the almost thousand year old Burchardi- Kirche since the beginning of the 3rd millennium. A truly trans-epochal piece of time, a sound-space with experienced present between past and future, a worldwide recognized reference project of modern music and art, the John Cage Organ Art Project.
