OVD057 : Marc Van Eyck - Pierre Vervloesem / Tamtams

Marc used to play drums on the first recordings of Pierre back in 1987...so after 35 years he came back naturally to Pierre with a series of drums patterns he recorded over the years for different projects and bands : Asoha, Someday and In The Ginza (with Pierre), Largo, Studio Pagol...

Pierre added guitars, basses, keys, effects, mixing and producing.

The result is quite exotic running from India, to dub, to hell from jazz and Vervloesemesque typical music! Olé hop!

OUC039 : Céline Lory - Gil Mortio / Erik Satie Vexations - Piano - Electronic

 

Cover art by A.L.


OUC039 : Céline Lory - Gil Mortio / Erik Satie Vexations - Piano - Electronic

What Céline says about her proposal:

"Vexations - the musical piece and its succulent title - have been with me for many years. Short, simple and original piece - I incorporated it in several of my shows, I also participated in its collective performance “marathon” in Bozar a few years ago. So I liked the idea that the musical piece would be on my path again in 2021 since its evocative title reflects our current experience. Calling on producer Gil Mortio was a way of breaking away from the routine of solo rehearsal and radically turning to a reinterpretation. Starting from a "classic" version revolving around the piano and its playing modes, he turned, kneaded and rearranged the piece. By playing, among other things, with the indomitable length prescribed by the composer, he creates a play of colors and shapes with acid tones aligned in spectral layers."

After XLS ‘s split he went on with « A GROUP » with Peter Vermeersh and Pierre Vervloesem (deUs first album producers), made two albums — the first having been produced by Spencer Chrislu (Frank Zappa’s sound engineerer).
