In anticipation of the upcoming FutureStops Festival, the Royal Canadian College of Organists is inviting you to participate in the launch of a TikTok video series!
The FutureStops TikTok videos will be an inspiration to both organists and non-organists alike and we would love you to be part of it. To make this work, we are asking you to submit a video of you playing a brief chord progression (approximately 30 seconds) which will serve as the basis for an improvised collaboration with musicians from around the world. Check out this link to see how other musicians are creating amazing music on TikTok.
All you have to do is use a metronome so that it’s easy for another musician to synchronize with you (but please make it inaudible in the recording!) and send to FutureStops Event Coordinator Sanjay Parker at sanjay.parker[at]rcco.ca by August 15, 2022. We hope that this will be a fun opportunity for you to collaborate with a variety of musicians, and a chance to promote yourself in the organ world and the wider musical community. Be creative with your registration and chords – the idea is to show off the expressive and unique capabilities of the instrument!
The FutureStops Festival, September 29 – October 1, 2022 is a showcase of the 21st century organ music experience. Join us in person or online for 3 days of exciting concerts and discussions with fascinating musicians as we present a wide range of radically innovative musical approaches to the organ. Learn more at futurestops.org.
