Jon Heilbron - bontempi chord organs, composition

This is the second Intonema release dedicated to organ works. The first, by Arturas Bumsteinas, was a post-composition of church organ improvisations. The Australian musician Jon Heilbron, who uses Bontempi portable chord organs in real time, works in a completely different way. In August 2018, he spent three weeks at the St. Petersburg Artist Residency, writing and honing his compositions. Both pieces on the album Pieces for Chord Organs fascinate and lead away from the everyday hustle and bustle: the layered sound of organs diffused throughout the room create beatings and harmonies hardly possible in other conditions.
