Ken Palmer is looking for musicians and their old organs! LOL


Seriously, at the last EM13 Festival, a few of you expressed an interest in participating in this idea I had. Here's the 411:

"MAGNUS OPUS" is an experiment in harmonics and nostalgia spearheaded by Ken Palmer, driven by the memories many of us have of playing with a Magnus electric organ during our childhood. For anyone who played one at a young age, the biggest thrill was to press all the chord keys down at the same time to listen to the swell of many multiple notes. Surely this was the first journey into experimental music for many of us budding musicians... an experience likely not appreciated by our parents at the time! Magnus Opus will be an attempt to gather as many of these old air-driven organs as possible in one place, in an attempt to recapture the magic of those innocent times. As adults, we hope to add a measure of refinement and self-control to the performance, and are anticipating many wonderful moments of swirling harmonics and evolving drones among the players, but perhaps we've already become our parents and it's too late to go back to that fleeting period of raw experimental bliss. It should be worth trying though!

I do have 3 organs I could bring, but since space is at a premium in my compact car, it'd be better if each participant could supply their own chord organ (and it doesn't HAVE to be Magnus brand, as long as it has a fan and no electronics, that's cool). Ideally I would like 4 to 6 players for this; we're scheduled for 4pm Friday on the main stage, so there will be plenty of room, so if we end up with a DOZEN, it would be epic! Please contact me ASAP at brainstatik@aol.com if you're interested. Thanks!

As I've mentioned elsewhere, count me in. Smile
