Hallucine was never meant to exist. That’s to say; the initial recordings made by Anne Bakker and René Aquarius were meant for separate projects, but when juxtapositioned by Rutger Zuydervelt, their combination proved utterly intriguing. Starting from this chance encounter, the three musicians refined the composition with subtle overdubs and detailed editing. The resulting 33-minute piece is an elusive patchwork of violin, percussion, vocals, field recordings, and electronics. In Hallucine, the division between found sound and (acoustic and electronic) instrumentation is blurred into a spectral hallucination.
Hallucine will be released on the 29th of October. Pre-orders now available.
