New York underground's notorious piano-destroying, soft-toy loving, composer, musician, shaman and artist, Charlemagne Palestine will deliver a powerful performance for organ and voice at the Holy Trinity Anglican Church, Williamstown on Saturday 23 June.

Palestine's work with organ specifically has created some of the most harmonically rich and intense explorations for that instrument. For this concert, Palestine will perform on the Holy Trinity Anglican Church organ, working with the architecture of the space to explore harmony, overtones and the very resonance of music itself.

An icon of the New York Avant Garde music scene in the 60s and 70s, Palestine is often touted as a contemporary of minimalists such as La Monte Young, Terry Riley and Philip Glass. In reality Palestine says his work is anything but minimalist and lays claim to the invention of maximalism' or spontanimalism'.

His works for piano, organ, carillon and voice explore the transcendent potentials of music, working across questions of resonance and duration, to create defining moments of trance music for the 20th and 21st centuries.
