Adriaan de Roover and Pieter Dudal are two musicians living in Brussels and Ghent. After a residency in Ghent’s De Koer in the spring of ‘21, where they created a tape loop sound installation, they decided to explore the possibilities of their collaboration further in a live context, by processing, mixing and recording loops into a living sound collage. Given the fragility of the tools they use, guaranteed things will go wrong, and push the performance into unforeseen directions.
Pieter Dudal is a sound artist from Ghent who works under his own name Dudal. Beside his own artistic work, he also founded and curates labels Dauw and blickwinkel. His music is recognizable by its lo-fi melodies surrounded by slowly building sound textures, resulting in fragile electro-acoustic compositions. After several shows in his own country, Dudal toured in Berlin, Prague and London and joined Peter Broderick for a string of shows. In 2021 he self released his debut album ‘Can you say it again’. New work is set to be released during 2022.
