No Pipe Dream For Organists

Wed, 2013-01-09 12:21
NO PIPE DREAM FOR ORGANISTS - Macleans Magazine

A new wave of young musicians is promoting the pipe organ—no hymns, no religious baggage… McGill University’s organ department recently received a boost with the arrival of new department chairman Hans-Olå Ericsson, a famed professor from Sweden. Ericsson’s avant-garde organ music was included in the soundtrack of the Leonardo DiCaprio film Shutter Island, but that isn’t his claim to fame. He is the project leader for the creation of a symphonic invention, the Studio Acusticum organ, built for a new concert hall in Piteå, Sweden.
