Christiaan Richter (organ)

See you organ increase right before your eyes was written specifically for organ tuned in quarter-comma meantone temperament, and commissioned by the Orgelpark in Amsterdam to be written for the Van Straten organ. The piece takes the shape of a very slow crescendo and is a study of timbre as well as chromatic harmony and chord progressions within the meantone temperament. The title of the piece is taken from a spam email.
