NEW ET ALIA RELEASE: harmoniums by Gebruers + Troch

Seppe Gebruers - harmonium
Thijs Troch - harmonium

Although they are rather known as pianists, Seppe Gebruers and Thijs Troch discovered a new challenge in playing the harmonium. In origin the harmonium was a European invention where it was used as an alternative for the bigger and more expensive pipe organs in smaller churches. As a duo - on two harmoniums - they freely improvise pieces as if they were composed and the other way around. The both of them are members of the collective called troika.

'Harmoniums' is released on cassette, including download code and unique postcard by Sjoerd Paridaen & Laura Vana van.
Limited edition: 100 ex.

New release: als ik niets meer van de kano zie

Improvised music by Frederik Leroux, Frans Van Isacker and Kris Vanderstraeten. Their improvised debut album sounds democratic, frank and yet controlled.

Very limited LP – only 100 copies – with wonderful artwork by Naninga Lens.

No time to waste.
