• Maxime Denuc plays Nachthorn
(live on MIDI controlled organ, Belgian premiere)
French, Brussels-based composer Maxime Denuc will perform the Belgian premiere of his critically acclaimed work Nachthorn for MIDI controlled organ. It’s a type of church organ that can be played through a computer, turning it into a powerful acoustic synthesizer. The title Nachthorn refers to one of the 78 stops that make up the main organ of St. Anthony's Church in Düsseldorf, on which Denuc composed his album. His dream: to create an entirely acoustic dance music piece with the organ as sole actor. The music is minimalist and hypnotic, oscillating between dub techno, harmonic grooves or after-hours pop. Commissioned by And& Connect, Denuc will play Nachthorn on one of the only MIDI organs in Belgium, located in the chapel of LUCA Lemmens, which will be transformed into a smoky nightclub.
