Charlemagne Palestine – “Schlingen-Blängen”

Charlemagne Palestine, organ

A true “living legend,” maverick American composer Charlemagne Palestine emerged from the downtown New York music scene. In a rare return visit to Los Angeles, where he lived in the early 1970s, he’ll pull out all the stops on the world’s largest church pipe organ. Always accompanied by his family of stuffed animals, Palestine has gained worldwide notoriety for his transcendent and earth-shaking performances, which create the illusion of dozens of organists playing simultaneously. His pure and animistic music creates trance-like drones that must be heard live to be fully appreciated.

General Admission: $25
