Playing tracks by
SLUMBERLAND aka Jochem Baelus is a Belgian musician (Echo Beatty) and filmmaker who has experience working with bands, films and theatre productions. From early on in his musical career he wanted to leave behind the classic arsenal of instruments when making his music and
went on a quest for a sound that had its own identity. These extraordinary abstract sounds are harboured by familiar, everyday objects, which become the foundation for his music. He reassigns these objects' functions and turns sewing machines, hairdryers, fans...to
mechanical drum machines, strings and more undefined do-it-yourself sound installations. His music results into drone - based, deconstructed songs driven by industrial, tribal-ish beats.
