More InfoIn 2005, I went to the Ardennes in Belgium with a group of friends.
They’d planned on a day of canoeing.
I’m too cowardly to even get into one, but I really wanted to record the sound of a trip down a roiling river from inside a canoe.
So I asked my friends, who took my device and recorded the sound material l used in this piece of music.
– Frans de Waard (avril 2015)
::: PRESS RELEASE :::
About 30 years into the “experimental” music scene, Frans de Waard (from the city of Nijmegen, in The Netherlands) epitomizes almost on his own a certain ideal of “alternative” culture. Cornerstone of legendary STAALPLAAT (shop/distro/label), he’s besides behind the iconic and still operating online mag VITAL WEEKLY, where he has never been stingy of informing reviews related to thousands of titles of underground music.
Impossible also not to mention his activities at Extrapool, a production house versed into sound, art and print where he did lectures and workshops…
His name can be found stamped onto a host of musical projects, both collaborative : Kapotte Muziek, Goem, Beequeen, Modelbau, The Tobacconists…and solo : Freiband, Shifts, or simply Frans de Waard…and this is not counting, as a lover of improvisation, his sets with among others : Howard Stelzer, Roel Meelkop, Giuseppe Ielasi, Andrew liles…
Needless to say he made as well many performances throughout Europe, but also in USA, Canada, Japan & Russia…
Last but not least, he’s the curator of Korm Plastics, Bake Records, and My Own Little Label, and co-founded Plinkity Plonk and Audio.nl…
Being exhaustive about the man, is clearly “mission impossible”…
“Courrière” is the soundtrack of a transcended phobia…
Evaporating voices heard from within,
quiverings on the liquid surface,
where we follow the course of dead stars…
A lengthy remorseless drift
to transpose the world…
Small in-depth erosions, oozing insides,
along which we glide in awe…
Sounds decay and meander,
sowing fear and dim light…
Our days are torn,
mirroring a subterranean sea…
“Courrière” offers no shelter,
just a U-turn…
