Harmonium Ensemble and the color orange.
Saturday Nov 11th, 8pm
When we were informed that a Harmonium Ensemble would be performing at Machine on Saturday, we ran to Wikipedia which informed us that a Harmonium is a free-standing musical keyboard instrument not dissimilar to a pipe organ. It consists of free reed pipes and sound is produced by air being pushed or sucked over reeds resulting in a sound similar to that of an accordion. It was invented in Paris in 1842 by Alexandre Debain, and later became very popular in India starting in the mid 19th century. The Harmonium Ensemble was founded in the fall of 2006 as a group of people interested in playing experimental music on harmoniums.
Members: Katie Bachler, Julia Holter, Qusai Kathawala, David Kendall, James Orsher, Tashi Wada
We feel confident this is your best opportunity to see 6 harmoniumists performing together this Saturday.
