Label: Orange Milk Records
DIDA is Dennis Vanderauwera of Belgium, active in the excellent Slagwerk label scene with Saliva, Toiret Status, Sybil Montet, etc. Inspired by children's library music, Ingenious Scenes represents frivolous humor within interesting formal experimentation. A childlike playfulness to serious arrangements; the well thought out songs strike with subtle surprises. The transition from serene to playful is very skillful. There is an undeniable joy in these tracks, an album definitely inspired by Yuu Miyake and Joe Hisaishi.
