CONSOULING NIGHT AT TRIX ANTWERP WITH:
Yodok III b/no/swe
When putting three fine exponents of modern, forward-thinking and experimental music in the same room, the hope is that something a little special is going to be the result. Yodok III are exactly that, all three recognisable by their contribution and yet forced to go beyond that by the other two. Yodok III is primarily a study in ambient drone, but elements of genres as diverse as jazz, rock and even classical can be heard playing their part in this mind-bending tapestry.
BARST is the moniker of Bart Desmet, a man who has played in several bands over the course of the years. However, it wasn’t until he pursued his solo output that he finally felt like coming home. BARST wants to break out of the prescriptive and normative song structures, and tears down the walls between all sorts of genres, inviting the listener to create its own imaginary worlds. For this, BARST relies on a vast array of pedals, synths, samplers, drone tracks, drum computers and effects.
