(Sloow Tapes, La Scie Dorée - BE)

Bart De Paepe

Bart De Paepe has plays/played in Sylvester Anfang II, Innercity, Amanita Vulva, Bokrijk, Lotuseters, Fuji and Ilta Hämärä and has released a couple solo lp’s with “zoners, reminiscent of early Spacemen 3 after a serious dose of natural codeine” on Vohu Manah, Beyond Beyond Is Beyond Records and Ultra Eczema.
 
Since 2005 Sloow Tapes is Europe’s most consistent tape label. The focus is on spirit-lifting raga’s cosmic drone jams and affectionate acid folk. The abstract felt marker psychedelia that label boss Bart “sloow” De Paepe spreads upon most of the covers, insures that music and artwork melts into an intoxicating smokescreen of infinite reflections. The label is home to a patchwork of contemporary experimentalists from Antwerp to Tokyo and a poetry/spoken word series of Shamanic Warriors like Simon vinkenoog, Louise Landes Levi, Ira Cohen, Hans Plomp, Judith Malina etc.

Kris Vanderstraeten
Percussionist Kris Vanderstraeten has been active in the Belgian free improvisation scene since the 70’s. As he has constantly been modifying his percussion set (with extensions) he developed a very personal sound balancing between the boundaries of free improvisation and abstract soundart. He has been working with a.o. Daniel Vanacker, Mike Goeyvaerts, Jacques Foschia and is member of the succesfull trio Sureau with Jean Michel van Schouwburg and Jean Demey. Apart from his musical activities Vanderstraeten is also a prolific graphic artist with countless handdrawn jazz concert posters and albumcovers on his credit.

Training photographer, in the beginning of the years ’70, I started to take pictures of musicians belonging to the European Improvised Music scene and began some electro-acoustic sound researches. Actually, I create my own sounds in the electro-acoustic or experimental electronic area, in the spirit of free improvisation. What attracts me, is the porosity of borders between the moment of creation where acoustic switch to transformed landscapes, either by the playing of the instruments, either by some filters (EQ, delay,reverb, granular synthesis…).
