About the Event
Jack Langdon (b.1994) is an organist, composer, videographer, and writer based in East Thetford, Vermont. Jack's work disintegrates commonplace sounds, images, and narratives—reassembling them in strange constructions. His music is gentle and expansive, drawing inspiration from the landscape and folk modernisms of the American Midwest. Jack was raised in Keyeser, Wisconsin and is a member of the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians.
Jack's approach to organ performance investigates the unique qualities of historical organs—often utilizing static textures, extended techniques, and electroacoustic augmentations. Jack is a proponent of contemporary organ music and regularly creates new work in collaboration with other performers and composers. Jack is the board vice-president of Vital Organ Project, a non-profit committed to advocating for contemporary organ music. Recordings of his have been released on Sawyer Editions and Lobby Art records.
Jack has composed music for Yarn/Wire, Ensemble Dal Niente, Southland Ensemble, members of Talea Ensemble, Trio SÆITENWIND, Minnesota Sinfonia and has collaborated with musicians Will Yager, Sara Constant, Yoshi Weinberg, Jack Yarbrough, Weston Olencki, Graeme Shields, and Jonathan Hannau. Jack is a Music & Economics Area Editor for Shred Magazine.
Jack holds degrees from St. Olaf College and Dartmouth College and is on the board of directors at Epsilon Spires.
