Jan Swerts: ‘Schaduwland’ (album presentation) / Ancienne Belgique, 8 novembre 2016 20:00, Ancienne Belgique – AB
« Previous AB-Artist In Residence presents brand new album »
This minimal pianist from Limburg honours Wim Mertens, Keith Jarrett & Joni Mitchell and views the entire wave of contemporary classic indie composers like Jóhann Jóhannson, Max Richter and Hauschka with respect.
Both his self-released debut ‘Weg’ (from ’10) and his second issue ‘De Anatomie Van De Melancholie’ (’13) were swamped with superlatives.
His soon to be released 3rd album ‘Schaduwland’ presents itself as his darkest album to date and is, in his own words, the post-apocalyptic soundtrack/reflection of 2014 (that he considers to be his ‘own personal horror year’). The musical cast is certainly impressive:
Jan Swerts: piano & voice
Kevin Imbrechts (Illuminine): guitar & elektronics
Gianni Marzo (Marble Sounds, Isbells): guitaar
Karen Willems (Inwolves, Yuko): drum
Beatrijs De Klerck (Illuminine): violin
Cedric Murrath (Hooverphonic): violin
Sam Faes: cello
Joeri Vaerendonck: contrabass
