in about a month we (that’s me and Peter De Koning) will perform at the PLUTO audio visual art festival. For this we’re doing an experimental set with re-invented versions of Lucien Goethals work, in an audiovisual set.

It will be laregly experimental, but we’re very excited about this. You can read more at http://www.pluto-festival.be/ThurDetail.html and http://www.pluto-festival.be/#post30



2011_09_07 Industrial Afternoon: The aftermath

body music Posted on Thu, September 08, 2011 09:54:20

LLUMEN has had its first live appearance at the InsideOut boat in Liege! It was a long drive and an early Sunday morning right in the middle of one of the most hectic periods in our professional lives (and they aren’t over yet) It was a very nice afternoon with an extremely enthusiastic crowd.

Most of all it was loud, it may well have been a bit to loud, making the sound appear very distorted. I just thought the monitor speakers were bust, but there was definitely something not right with the overall sound. For which we apologies, it was supposed to sound extremely clear and balanced.

It did get us into a lively discussion on the advantages/disadvantages of using hardware/software that is still not resolved. All in all lessons were learned and we take this experience with is for our next gig(s), where a more controllable (so hardware) setup will make its debut.

Also, work is being done on the visuals and if SparkFun would be so kind to deliver my order soon I’ll be adding some novel self-build controllers to the live setup. If not I’m afraid I’ll have to bring out my keytar!!

Where We Collide online

I uploaded a demo version of Where We Collide to soundcloud
This week I will hopefully finish the song, it still needs some production work.



Where We Collide

music Posted on Tue, April 12, 2011 18:30:01

Over the last few weeks, I’ve been working -on and off- on a new song. The demo arrangement is ready and a rough take on the vocals is laid down as well.

Some additional production is still needed, but I think the main ideas are put forward nicely.

In the next few days I’ll be including working on a video for the new song, maybe it’s time to get the kinect camera out of the box again.
