A collaboration between New Yorker Luke Calzonetti (Run Dust, Sugarstick & Xerox) and Limburgian Stijn Wybouw (KRAMP, Geen Bloemen Meer Voor Jou) of transcendental improv overtones. Undulating layers of synth lashings, cymbal echoes, and some laid-back guitar action mesh in a spaced out trip in the physical and astral plane. Sick twilight tripping indeed - with finely crafted visuals and a first full-on LP will come your way via the great Meakusmean avenue.



Yves De Mey started releasing music in the mid-nineties of last century. Back then, his releases were clearly rooted in breakbeats and UK drum'n'bass. While working for theater and dance performances soon thereafter, he creates large scale sound installations that foster a new interest in experimental sound design. De Mey has worked with a wide range of performing artists. He’s also very active as a sound designer, sound engineer and re-recording mixer for film and tv. Since 2009, most of his music has been released under his own name. All the while, his focus has shifted towards the most singular form of sound synthesis by using modular synths. His work, so far, has been released by Line, Opal Tapes, Spectrum Spools/editions Mego, Sandwell District, Entr’acte, Modal Analysis, Latency, Superpang, ... He's also part of Sendai (with Peter Van Hoesen) and Grid Ravage, a trio of synths, drums and cello.



Pak Yan Lau is a Brussels based musician, with roots from Hong Kong. Her music spans different horizons with improvisation and sound/textures as the main focus. She works with prepared pianos, keyboards, toy pianos, objects and electronics. She is active in different projects, from grooving (‘Going’) till abstract structuring (‘Lauroshilau’, ‘Duo pour 454 Chordes’). She has made music for dance theater, shadow theater (The Fabulous Choi Sisters), photographs (Stills) and documentaries.

Théo Lanau is a Brussels-based drummer, improviser and composer from France, who ventures in all genres. He's part of numerous bands such as Limite, Soror, Amaury Faye Trio, Terpsichore, Mobilhome, Pétrole and Omega Impact, to name a few... In 2022, he created the independent label Bêtes Records to release personal projects. Previously, he was notably part of the electro-pop band Bobun Fever, the improvised rock trio Roue Libre and the French-Indian project Spicy Frog.
