Alexander Meszler


Alexander Meszler is an organist who is passionate about research and interdisciplinary performances. His performances and research focus on inspiring new perspectives on the use of the organ and on its qualities. In 2022 he was appointed professor at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa, where he is also the college Organist. Together with Kimberly Marshall, he is co-curating the imminent on-line publication of the Encyclopaedia of the organ, with 4000 articles on the instrument. In January 2023 he performed the piece Organ2/ASLSP (As Slow as Possible) by John Cage non stop for 24 hours, setting the record for the longest ever performance to be executed by an individual organist. After receiving the prestigious Fulbright Award, Alexander spent one year in Versailles, France, researching laicism and the organ, studying with Jean-Baptiste Robin. He is the co-creator of Walls of Sound: The Ecology of the Borderlands, bringing together experts in different fields, including music, science, theatre, art and activism. This project was partially funded by the Foundation for Contemporary Arts of New York. Alexander is currently vice-president of Epsilon Spires, a non-profit organisation that operates in the sector of arts and sustainability, based in Brattleboro, Vermont. He is an active researcher who presents his works on laicism and the organ throughout Europe and the United States.
