Cathedral Mobile is a new composition by Jacob Lekkerkerker and takes the cathedral space as its playing field. Organ sounds are amplified live and can be heard both acoustically and through speakers. This offers new possibilities to the musicians: they can change the basic sounds of the pipe organ by using techniques from the world of electronic music: loops, pitch bending, delays, etc. The composition consists of five parts, with different roles for instruments and musicians. One part of Cathedral Mobile makes use of a sample-database of pre-recorded sounds from 9 cathedral churches. The final composition however, will be an online version, to be released by the end of 2018, as a virtual cathedral of sounds. In Alkmaar, it will be performed by musicians from the world of classical music, underground, and jazz: Jacob Lekkerkerker, Alfredo Genovesi and Oene van Geel.
Cathedral Mobile is a composition supported by the Nicholas Berwin Charitable Trust in London.
