TAV EXOTIC AT DE AUDIO PLANT

September 19, 2013

Bro Bounce starts at minute 5

Before leaving on tour with mystical mademoiselle Chicaloyoh, I finished putting together an album called “OCCULTCITI”. It’s a further journey into the electronic style I developed in “El Telonero” but this time with a darker and more urban feel. I wanted to evoke a certain Carpenteresque-sci-fi vibe with the sounds, a sort of ode/lament to modern and futuristic cities and their people, bathed in esoteric symbolism, ready for utter doom.

So yeah, the dudes from Smeltkop (hit them up on fb as well) decided to put it out on tape and in 100 copies with some very nice silkscreened covers. Order it from them, because I already gave all of mine away…

Also playing 2 shows this week with Tav Exotic. First one is at the mighty Audio Plant in Antwerp tonight (sept. 12th), second one is at some sort of crazy acid party in Tienen tomorrow. Peace to anybody who checks this site, stay true and love one another.

TAV EXOTIC – s/t 2xCD-R

2000-01-02 13.18.57 2

Mike & I decided to put together (almost) all of our recordings so far of our new project in a massive 90 minute release, divided in two CD-R’s. Everything here is improvised and without overdubs (except for the very first track which you can hear on the video below). It’s dancy, it’s noisey, it’s kosmische, it’s stoned and it’s cheap. Tav Exotic style. Comes in a double DVD case with full color covers.

TAV EXOTIC

June 10, 2013

Started a new band with my friend Mike from Tienen, it’s called Tav Exotic. We will be playing in Belgium twice this week, check the live section for info. If you don’t like synthesizers then peace to you.

The video was made using footage from “Gateways to the Mind” (1958)
