Spanning 5 decades, Lockwood’s captivating body of work has explored an array of unusual materials, instruments, sound sources, and concepts that all resonate with a distinctly organic nature. Over the course of the festival we will celebrate her and her work through various presentations.

To conclude this program, James Rushford will perform this mesmerizing durational piece for pipe organ by the late Danish artist Henning Christiansen.
In 1967 Henning Christiansen proposed to Joseph Beuys that he compose a major work for organ titled Fluxorum Organum to be played alongside Beuy’s action Eurasienstab. Agreeing upon a structure of 5 sections / 5 movements, the first action of Eurasienstab took place in Vienna in 1967.
Henning Christiansen (1932 – 2008) was a composer, artist, and a central figure of the Danish branch of the Fluxus movement. Following studies at the Royal Conservatory of Music, Copenhagen, he attended the Darmstadt Summer School in 1962, where he began his involvement with the Fluxus movement and, later, the radical Danish art movement, Ex-School (Eks-Skolen).
