This tape consists of edits, four different live shows that I played in 2012. ‘Impoverization’ and ‘Too little people in a too little room’ were recorded in Ghent, the city I live in. ‘The Jorgmund Pipe’ was recorded in Brussels, Belgium, on an evening I shared the stage (or rather the floor of the house, since it was a house concert) with the wonderful ‘Embryo’. The title is taken from the novel ‘The Gone-Away World’ by Nick Harkaway, it’s the name of the pipe that encircles the post-apocalyptic world and that sprays FOX in order to create a ‘livable zone’. I recommend reading it. ‘Slaapstaat’ was recorded in Heerlen, Netherlands on an evening I had the pleasure of sharing the stage with Pimmon. It was ten years ago we met for the first time, though it didn’t feel like that.
Many thanks go out Justin Wright for putting out this tape, who I recently met when we shared the stage in Les Ateliers Claus in Brussels (a big thanks goes out to them as well). We had a great evening there, opening up for Roedelius (Hello to you, Joachim!). A big hello to John Bohannon from ‘Ancient Ocean’ who played as well that evening. Thanks and love to An, Oda and Polly for being and bearing with me.
In order to do what you love you need to love what you do.
