At +50.92509° latitude and +03.84800° longtitude Niels Van Heertum recorded his first solo record, in the familiar warmth of his living room in a windmill in the East of Flanders. On the one hand the record explores the sonic possibilities of the euphonium, tuba and trumpet. On the other hand it creates a place without haste. Pure intervals are superposed and moved in order to avoid tension and agitation. Meanwhile the amplified horns circle around the rounded windmill room forming a dense woven web of sound.Niels Van Heertum makes music of many sorts: he was co‐founder of the improvisation collective Ifa y Xango, is a member of Linus + Økland/Van Heertum and granvat’s Book of Air: vvolk, and plays with Chantal Acda, Norberto Lobo’s Oba Loba and En avant, marche! a theater piece by Alain Platel, among other things.
