Musique Chienne, Bright Entity & Different Fountains

SA 25.04.2015 16:00

Welcome to the world of Synth-pop. Saturday, two bands led by two women will invite you to a utopian and ethereal communion, where dog is God and the future is bright. Using mainly a keyboard, a microphone, and a drum machine they will take you on a journey into romance, escapism and aspiration. This minimal wave will make you dance and dream: be ready to get carried away. As the sun disappears, we invite you to a Dj-set; electronica and house take over, with a pinch of psychedelia and refined percussive elements. Remarkable are the incredibly deep, sometimes menacing but warm and melodious bass-lines. They will trigger your energy to keep you going into the night.

Musique Chienne

Musique Chienne is described as music from Brussels for people and dogs. Her fascination for this domestic animal reflects in her self-made videos of free spirited dogs playing in a park. Her happy minimal tunes make you float away in a relaxing state, whether you are a dog or not. Musique Chienne is Sarah-Louise Barbett (FR, 1989). Barbett studied comics at Saint-Luc, Liège, drawing at La Cambre and finally at L' ERG Brussels. She records scenes of some of the most poignantly boring scenarios imaginable: the moment someone leaves a bottle of Fanta on a car roof, or when she catches her dog sitting casually on a sofa. Sarah-Louise registers odd mundanity with beauty.

Bright Entity

Michiel and Ciska have been working together on music in Brussels since 2009. They compose using mainly synthesizers and drum machines and the result is a magnificent blend of pop music for Roland dummies. It's eighties synthpop but without the cheese. And above all, it's music for cruising, home listening and dancing, for making out and romancing. Bright Entity are Ciska Thomas (BE, 1991) and Michiel Claus (BE, 1987). She studied jazz singing at the Conservatory of Maastricht, composing music floating between pop and jazz, a warm sound though edgy, it's pop but it's not. He is a quixotic DJ and producer and helping out in the legendary Brussels record shop Dr. Vinyl, adhering to a relentless routine of searching for new and exciting music.

Different Fountains

Different Fountains formed in Brussels / Paris in 2009 by the two Fountainheads Bernardo Risquez and Michael Langeder. For a few years now, they have been at the centre of what Brussels has to offer in modern electronic music. Producing leftfield electronica imbued by melody, otherworldly sounds, permutated lyrics and alien wistfulness. Sometimes danceable, sometimes experimental.

Michael Langeder (AT, 1981) and Bernardo Risquez (VE, 1982) met at the Faculty for Architecture and Urban Design, Caracas. Their mutual interest for architecture and sound is intertwined in their artistic practice. While Michael is experimenting with light performances and soundscapes where the city is both target and décor, Bernardo is interested in audiovisual representation, searching possible urban rhythmic patterns that could define cities and cultures.
