|“Our organ never sounded like that.” Have you seen an artist’s palette? All those dabs of colors? An organ is like that palette except its variety comes from mixing a plethora of sounds instead of colors. Another joy, she calls it a joy, I know it’s a phenomenal skill she has developed, is going to a new instrument and finding those different colors of sound and creating a painting that might use the myriad of sounds in a way that hadn’t been heard before. This is especially true in Around the World in 80 Minutes. With all the unique organ music from 16 different countries, Jeannine uses an organ’s full palette of sound to recreate the artwork of the music from each country. It’s truly exciting to watch her create images and paint with those tonal colors.
Dr. Jeannine Jordan, organist and David Jordan, media artist of Pro-Motion Music are the creators and presenters of the dramatic story-driven organ and multimedia concert experiences, From Sea to Shining Sea, Bach and Sons, and Around the World in 80 Minutes. #DrJeannineJordan #OrganAndMultimediaConcert
