Lac Chimère is a lake in Mensono, where many unknown and untouched sound creatures reside. They sometimes form musical gatherings in which their sounds float in ether. This album consists of field recordings captured at the very moment while making an accidental stop at the lake. Originally from Finland but now resident in Belgium, Timo van Luijk is an autodidact sound artist/composing improviser working with acoustic instruments (strings, wind, percussion) and various (sound) objects. He started his musical excursions with some obscure local projects in the mid 80's and fapart from his solo work he has done frequent collaborations with Christoph Heemann (In Camera) and Limpe Fuchs, Kris Vanderstraeten, Raymond Dijkstra (Asra), Andrew Chalk (Elodie), Frederik Croene and is member of the group Onde together with Greg Jacobs and Marc Wroblewski (both from Noise Maker's Fifes).
Percussionist Kris Vanderstraeten is one of the unsung heroes of Belgian free improvisation. Since the seventies, he has been experimenting with his unique set-up and different collaborations. He reportedly fell under the spell of free music after witnessing a performance by the legendary trio of Peter Brötzmann, Fred Van Hove and Han Bennink. Since then, he has been experimenting with his self-built drum kit in different surroundings.
