John Chantler is a musician and organiser living in Stockholm, Sweden.
He works with synthesizers, electronics and pipe organs.

His most recent LP — Which Way To Leave? (ROOM40) — charts an
unpredictable, highly dynamic course through distorted washes of masses
harmonics and passages of spare, alien beauty. This follows Still
Light, Outside (1703 Skivbolaget) — an extended suite that combines
passages of stark minimalism centred at the bodily invasive extremes of
the pipe organ’s register with striking explosions of colour; massed
chords shot through with heavy distortion and electronics that operate
according to their own dream logic.

Originally from Australia he spent a decade in London before moving to
Sweden where he directs a small festival for ‘other music’ in Stockholm
called Edition.

For this concert Chantler will present two new works: Tomorrow is Too
Late (originally commissioned by INA-GRM, Paris) and We’re Always at The
