24.12.2016 – Second New Year card designed by Maya Bringolf

 
For the fourth series of New Year cards we have chosen an artist from Zurich whom we have come to know and appreciate through her work with organ pipes. As well as having an extremely wide range of artistic creativity, Maya Bringolf has for years been tackling organs and how organ pipes operate. The collocation of elements that initially appear to be utterly at variance with one another surprises, fascinates and stimulates.

12.01.2016 – The fascination of organ building

 
When we humans are fascinated by something we are held captive, continually facing new challenges. In this respect organ building is inexhaustible, because we work in borderlands. Depending on our viwpoint, musical, technical or architectural aspects or the history of art may dominate our involvement. Since 1864 Kuhn Organ Builders Ltd has made every effort to respond to all these demands. For the organ will not be a work of art unless all aspects and every detail blend perfectly into a whole. The documentary «The fascination of organ building» will guide you through the history and present-day of Kuhn Organ Builders Ltd and demonstrate step by step how an organ is created for the combined efforts of experts from a variety of occupations.You can find the movie here
