John returns to BAS to talk about the work he made here for Borealis festival and further thoughts on the relationship between listening, architecture and acoustics.
John Chantler is a musician and organiser living in Stockholm, Sweden. As a musician and composer John's work utilisers electronics and organs working with and against the specific systems inherent in his chosen tools. His most recent LP — Which Way To Leave? — charts an unpredictable, highly dynamic course through distorted washes of massed harmonics and passages of stark alien beauty. This follows Still Light, Outside — 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.
