PILAR ASAP: Visible Cloaks + Yoshio Ojima + Satsuki Shibano
8/11 - Pilar, Brussels (free for members)

This will be an evening on the heights of the Japanese avant-garde - eating ramen before the show is recommended. Visible Cloaks is one of the best contemporary new age/ambient acts out there. Together with composer Yoshio Ojima and pianist Satsuki Shibano the electronic duo wrote Serenitatem, a serious tour de force. The album is part of the FRKWYS-series of New York label RVNG intl.’s. They’ll heal mind, body and soul.


Laurel Halo + Simon Halsberghe
8/11 - C12, Brussels (free for members before 01.00)

After getting your balance restored during the Visible Cloaks show in Pilar, Laurel Halo looks like the perfect act to complete the night. She’s a true quality label for electronic music. From ambient pop and abstract techno to eclectic DJ-sets: Halo always delivers.


Sea (Peoples)
15/11 - Volta, Brussels (free for members)



Schiev Festival Day 3: Laryssa Kim + Acte Bonté + Ben Bertrand + Maria W Horn + Gigsta
17/11 - Beursschouwburg, Brussels (free for members)

The line-up of this year’s Schiev festival is as stellar as always. Might be shining the strongest on the firmament of the third day: the surreal pop of Acte Bonté and the otherworldly minimalism of bass clarinetist Ben Bertrand.
