Broadcast an exclusive visual performance, straight from S.M.A.K. on Facebook on Thursday, March 18 at 20:00 hour (CET).
On February 26, Warped Dreamer released its long awaited second album 'Live at Bimhuis' (Consouling Sounds). To celebrate the birth of the new album, the band is set to broadcast an exclusive visual performance, straight from S.M.A.K. Ghent.
Because of the cancellation of the whole tour, they invite Carlos Caballero to draw and paint, while playing the newest record on an old fashioned vinyl player at the beautiful exposition room of S.M.A.K. Ghent. Warped Dreamer can't travel but fortunately their music can!
About Live at Bimhuis.
Borders, labels, identities, genres, they are all there to comfort our insecure minds. We are driven by an urge to define, a desire for clarity, an order to things. We crave repetition, recognizability and predictability. That makes it easier to comprehend and identify with something. And that is OK, we are programmed like that. We like to know what to expect, we dig the same big melodies and recognisable stories.
On the other hand: this is the 21st century and our assumptions are constantly challenged. And so are all of the things mentioned above. So, you can either ignore it, move on as if nothing has happened and try sticking to the old ways of seeing and thinking. Or you can embrace it, let your guard down, let yourself be overwhelmed by contemporary chaos and perhaps even let yourself be inspired by it. Warped Dreamer provides the suitable soundtrack to these endeavours.
Like Lomahongva (2016), follow-up Live At Bimhuis confronts this dazzling, overdriven challenge head-on: with improvised music that is bursting at the seams, defiantly ignoring stylistic borders and provoking the listener by luring him/her into a challenging sonic labyrinth.
Broadcast on Facebook, March 18 at 20:00 hour (CET).
From March 19, the video can be watched on YouTube.
