The acts you can't miss according to Thomas Konings
When you listen to Organn, Obsequies’ debut release on Knives, it feels as if you’re stumbling through an obscure landscape and suddenly noticing something that resembles of a lighthouse. Or maybe it’s a bird. You can’t recall – just as you forgot how you’ve gotten there in the first place. According to the Belgian artist, at its core the album is about ‘love and duality’. The distant melodies and broken samples lead you on a journey that is comforting in a strange way. Taking inspiration from Lautréamont’s poem ‘Les Chants de Maldoror’, it’s evident how the music is ‘as beautiful as the chance encounter of a sewing machine and an umbrella on an operating table’. Before wandering off in Obsequies’ surreal universe, the night will kick off with a short film by KASK students. After that, Crater will slowly guide us back into our world with a DJ set at the bar.
