The Golden Glows-small 0505



December 16, 2018

Since 2010 we have been working on a piece of cinema called Afterglow. Together with director Benny Vandendriessche and DOP Carlo Rottiers we created a short film that is The Golden Glows in another medium. Music and image are fully integrated. We’ve been working for ages on the soundtrack with a 22-piece orchestra and gorgeous otherworldly musical colors: lapsteel, conch shells, vibraphone, Ondes Martenot, female choir, bass clarinet, strings, brass…

The soundtrack premières tonight on radio Klara at exactly 21h13. Afterglow is also available on iTunes  and other digital platforms from today onwards.

We’re working hard at bringing the film to a silver screen near you.

A limited vinyl edition is in the making.
