Gearing up for summer

May 28, 2015

1935-Hive-Evening-Circle

First of all I want to thank everybody who came out and invited me to perform the last couple of months. It was a busy first half of the year and I had a real blast! Thanks for the support, the food, the drinks and the carpet.

Before I take  a small summer break, there are still two shows coming up. The first weekend of June I’ll be playing a solo set at the 4th edition of A Berry Feast in Vienna, hosted by Ulrich Roïs, who is also running the splendid Feathered Coyote Records label. The second weekend of June The Bow Aether Group (= Bow Ether Group + Simon Marius from MAAN) will make his debut at Het Zuiderpershuis in Antwerp, as part of the Oorstof 2015 concert serie hosted by the great people of Sound In Motion. Also on the bill that night is the brand new duo of Bart Sloow and Bram “Ignatz” Devens. That’s two debut shows for the price of one! So come out and get those holiday vibes running!

06/06/2015 – Hellvete, A Berry Feast, St-Pölten, (AT) (w/ Eric Arn, Torùn, …)
13/06/2015 – Bow Aether Group – Oorstof, Zuiderpershuis, A’pen (B) (w/ Louise Landes Levi, Panashiba, Hans Plomp, Gino Coomans+Gerard Herman+Kris Vanderstraeten)

Solar Devotion

November 5, 2014

Solar Devotion

For this compilation we asked each artist to contemplate on the Sun, our closest star, greatest deity and life-giver. No matter how human civilization was changing, the Sun has always been and remains a major focus of attention, even if we don’t realize it. This compilation is an anthem to sunlight in all its forms, it’s meditation and a ritual at the same time. Gratitude for our existence in this world.

Together with my good friend Dachligt I made a brand new track called “Ligt De Dach” for the “Solar Devotion” compilation that just came out on the Russian ΠΑΝΘΕΟΝ label.

You can listen to the track on by clicking below or you can go the BandCamp page and get the CD-R for only $6. It also features brand new tracks by Bird People and Guenter Schlienz among others.
