    I. Coral Groups is a live concert piece for 32 channels with an undefined duration. Various found objects, electronics, piano vignettes and field recordings are put into relation with each other in an improvised way, creating a panorama that’s both random and directional. I presented this piece between early 2013 and spring 2016, in Finland, Sweden, Japan, Mexico, United States, Italy, Germany, Denmark, United Kingdom, Belgium, among other. The excerpt here has been recorded close to the final performance of the piece, when things started to come together quite naturally. Recorded live at Gold+Beton Gallery, Köln, Germany, november 2015. II. Four Pages is a sonata. The seed of this work is a composition for piano notated on … four pages. Electronically transformed into particles in F-sharp Major, tucked between murmurous silences of a budget-friendly analog filter. Summer 2016.

    Fourth Expanded Edition On Vinyl, 170 copies
    Mastered by Christophe Albertijn. Offset printed covers. Lay Out by Jeroen Wille and Anna Papanastasiou.

    Recorded in Antwerp and on location, 2010–2014. Songs Of Gold are nine small portraits. Five tracks that where featured on the cassette versions PLUS four extra tracks for this vinyl version. Culled from compilations, limited run cassette releases, choreographies, and 7” singles. Some pieces were worked on for a length of time, others materialized in just about one take. All the songs are derived by an encounter with an object, a place or a person. Or by a combination of these. The events are translated into the work through the intermediary of symbolic sounds and notes. There is no thematic link between the compositions.
