Elsewhere #12: Mary Lattimore + Adriaan De Roover
Final tickets, only available at STUK (ticket link above)
'Elsewhere' presents tranquil music at historic sites in Leuven. For the 12th edition we visit the baroque Zwartzuster chapel, for a programme with the American harpist Mary Lattimore and Adriaan De Roover, former front man of Oaktree, who will introduce the audience to his debut album.
Mary Lattimore is a musician and composer living in LA who moulds ice cold soundscapes with her concert harp. Sounds in which vague memories and evocations bubble to the surface. By making use of electronic effects she brings a new layer to her age-old instrument. Last year, she released her second album 'Hundreds of Days' that contains a variety of blurry harp melodies in which the listener can disappear.
Over the past few years, Antwerp-based Adriaan De Roover has produced a fresh mix of postclassic, ambient and electronics under the moniker of Oaktree. Now he releases a very beautiful debut under his own name. Be prepared for autumnal listening works full of enchanting harmonies, granular noises and rippling breakbeats. This music also works for fans of Four Tet and Fennesz. Live with drums!
Guided tour at 19h. Free in combination with concert ticket, upon reservation via email@example.com.
