MICHAEL WOOKEY

Michael Wookey by Antoine Magnier

Many years ago, a Salvation Army pump organ – dusty from service and silent since the war – settled into the hands of a 15 year-old boy named Michael Wookey. He began to play and record his own songs, and soon the pump organ was joined by other, more arcane instruments. An Optigan here, some Omnichords there, boxes of dead Casios waiting to be corrected. For the past few years, Michael lived in Paris, where he played regular concerts at Divan du Monde, Café De La Danse and Le Réservoir, and a monthly residency at the prestigious La Bellevilloise. He could also be seen performing his score for ‘Alice In Wonderland’, leading a 30-piece orchestra of toy pianos or recording innumerable musicians in his studio.
