The music of Anna Von Hausswolff lingers between the melancholic and ecstatic. Inspired by folklore, fairy tales, literature, poetry and cinema, the Swedish multi-instrumentalist evokes layered narratives and dense storyworlds with her classical-leaning music. Her earlier albums combined opaque instrumentations with urgent vocals, but on her latest album All Thoughts Fly, Von Hausswolff isolated a church organ as her only musical tool of expression. The result is an intimate and captivating sonic journey that transposes the 16th-century instrument to highly distinctive, contemporary compositions.
On Saturday 9 April, Anna von Hausswollf will perform a live rendition of All Thoughts Fly on Church organ.
