Volume 28 No 1 | Sept 20-Nov 8, 2022

Here in Toronto to close the three-day inaugural FutureStops

organ festival at Cathedral Church of St. James with Schlingen-

Blängen, an “ever-evolving work/action” that he has been

performing for almost 40 years, Charlemagne Palestine is an

American visual artist and musician, now living in Brussels.

One of the founders of the New York school of minimalist

music (along with the likes of Terry Riley, Philip Glass, and

Steve Reich), these days he prefers the label “maximalist”:

“More is more” rather than “less is more”. Palestine stopped

performing from the early 80s till the mid-90s, devoting

himself entirely to creating “plush animal divinity altars as

multi-media sculptures and installations.” Since his return,

they have become an integral ingredient of what he describes

as “Gesamtkunstwerk” – combining installations and

performances.
