Martin Creed's Work No. 1815 is performed alongside some of J.S. Bach's greatest organ works.
Martin Creed is one of the UK's most well known and versatile artists. As a visual artist, he won The Turner Prize in 2001 for his piece Work No.227 The lights going on and off, and on the morning of the opening of the London Olympics millions of people participated in his Work No.1197 All the bells in a country rung as quickly and as loudly as possible for three minutes.
As a composer, Creed has written for orchestras and ensembles, and his Work No.409 can be heard every day by visitors to Southbank Centre, who hear the main lift in Royal Festival Hall singing its way up and down between the floors.
The rigorous systems and equations in Creed's work bring to mind the mathematic-like perfection of Bach's music, and in this concert Work No.1815, written for the re-opening of the Royal Festival Hall organ, is performed alongside some of Bach's greatest organ works.Performers
