Anne Bakker, René Aquarius & Rutger Zuydervelt - Hallucine

15 Sep 2021 - Thorsten

Genre: Avantgarde, Experimental

“Wow, a record so good, it’s hard to believe it’s real!” - “True, a record that shouldn’t be.” - “Shouldn’t be?” - “Yes, the tracks were basically assembled by one artists who took the separate parts of two others and then discovered how well they work together.” - “You are joking, right?” No.

When listening to this amazing piece of music which is a wonderful blend of modern Classical music, Ambient and Drone one might have any impression, but surely not that these “songs” do not sound coherent, it flows elegantly and epic as if the artists involved were aiming for exactly this musical vision. However, this is exactly NOT how it went along. Parts of the music were recorded by René Aquarius (Dead Neanderthals, Coffin Lurker and many more) and violinist Anne Bakker; to point it out once more: Both never intended to release these parts in the form that they have now. Of course, that leads to the question how this record then came to life? Very simple: Rutger Zuydervelt (aka Machinefabriek) got hold of the single parts and noticed that when blended together there is a story behind the tracks which wants to be discovered. Which story? Well find out for yourself while listening to the tracks on Hallucine

And now, here at Veil of Sound, listen to “Excerpt 1” by Zuydervelt - Bakker - Aquarius! Enjoy!
