WD: "unfortunately due to illness Arve Henriksen and Jozef Dumoulin can't join us this time but we're looking forward to explore new musical paths in duo."
By using a dazzling variety of electronics and effects, the band creates extended soundscapes that move from subdued, ethereal moments to dense, intergalactic trips that introduce you to new post-industrial worlds with an almost physical, frightening intensity. And it is in these movements, these transformations between intricately detailed and carefully constructed temperaments, that the band shines at its brightest. The result is what happens when arcade madness and a boiling mass of sound make place for plundering schizophrenics, when the cerebral and the visceral collide, when dizzying fragmentation is pushed forward with an unstoppable thrust.
Live At Bimhuis is musical de/construction at its best. This is space exploration, creative transformation and futuristic ritualism combined. It defies rules of logic and perhaps it will even mess with your mind, but at least you will catch a glimpse of new sounds, possibilities and connections, and that can be terribly exciting.
