Portable Organs er et en performantiv udforskelse af et selvdesignet pibe orgel og stemmelæber. Værket tager afsæt i instrumentbygning og stemningen af piberne, hvis toner varierer mikrotonalt. I værket transformeres det oprindelige præmis for instrumentet ved at maksimere des potentielle output og ved at kontrollere systemet på mikrotonalt plan, lige så vel som der i værket komponeres med akustiske fænomener som bineural beating og differenstoner.

Portable Organs is a performative exploration of a selfdesigned pipe organ and vocal cords. The conceptual point of departure of the work is composition as instrument building, focused on individual pipes, tuned microtonally. The piece transforms the original premise of the pipe organ by maximizing its potential output and gaining microtonal control over the system, as well as composing with acoustic phenomena as binaural beating and difference tones.
