Jax Deluca’s ‘Organs In The Wind’ is a deeply personal album written during a time marked by profound sadness and loss, but refined in a time of healing and breakthrough. And it’s perhaps that period in between the two, the seemingly still and draining time when things seem like they’re not progressing at all, that ‘Organs In The Wind’ represents.
But with time, everything changes. You change, circumstances change, things are constantly evolving. “For this album, I didn’t exactly set out to capture a moving stillness. But it was definitely how I was feeling,” shares Deluca.
Working with mainly her voice and organ alongside some effect pedals, Jax Deluca creates music which feels almost like a ghost. Soothing and gently pulsating, it lives somewhere between drone and lullaby, between loneliness and peace.
“These recordings are supposed to be listened at a low volume in a dark space. Headphones are also suitable, but still at a low volume in a dark space. A quiet cavern.”

LIke tman1015, I am a little scared of this album. It is a deeply shocking and accurate musical portrayal of senile dementia -inasmuch as I've (sadly) observed members of friends and family become gradually subsumed by it.
Yet it is captivating, there are many moments of beauty along the way. I cannot stop going back for another listen.
I wonder if anyone (apart from the artist) has managed to listen all the way through in one sitting. I am not even close to managing yet. Simon Woolf
