268 years of reverb


“The World Premiere of 268 years of reverb, a new 8-hour durational work written by Jonny Greenwood (Radiohead, The Smile) performed live on the Octagon Chapel’s pipe organ.

268 years of reverb was written to summon all the music, voices and sounds that have ever filled the air and soaked into the walls of a room: to shake or coax them out of the fabric of the building, so they can be heard again – distilled and concentrated into eight hours. Performed from daylight through sunset by James McVinnie and Eliza McCarthy, this eight hour organ experience can be enjoyed for the full length of the performance, or for 1 hour and 50 minute time slots.
