With Slumberland, Belgian musician, composer and instrument maker Jochem Baelus has been unleashing obscure, hypnotic krautrock and post punk colored with distorted exotica, upon us since 2013. Slumberland's tactile sound is generated by a battery of sewing machines, film projectors and other dismantled, mechanical objects. So far, he released a solo album, the 2019 release 'Sea, sea, sea Drifter // See, see, see Drifter', alongsided by 2 drummers and a recent collaboration with Tuvan voice-artist Sainkho Namtchylak. But last year Jochem Baelus also constructed a brand new sound installation which he takes on the road solo. Expect rattling drones of motoric 'bagpipes' grinding, accompanied by compelling, melodic & minimal compositions and complete stillness.
