Current affairs

Thursday, January 20th, 2011

Dear all,

It’s been rather quiet on the mailing front lately, but that doesn’t mean nothing happened.  The second half of 2010 got eaten by finishing a new album (is it really finished….?), a lot of sound design and mixing work for movies and documentaries and leaving Brussels to settle in Antwerp.

If all goes well, this year will bring the release of a new album (no release date yet) with a stylish visual design by my partner on so many levels Nathalie Kronal.  Following this release we’ll put together an A/V liveset.

Together with Peter Van Hoesen, i continue to work as Sendai.  If time allows, this will result in a full album as well.

And it’s very likely a lot of other things will happen, some other collaborations are waiting to happen, and there’s a lot of music and sound i want to get out of my system.

Last year i particularly enjoyed my collaboration with Els Viaene.  We had the opportunity to perform live, combining field recordings with analogue modular synthesis.  Definitely a project that we’ll continue doing.

Hots, a basque online experimental radio station is hosting an excerpt from one of the rehearsals Els and i recorded.  You can find it here.

That’s it for now.  Wishing you all the best for this year.  And stay in touch.
