SLOW BEAR (BE)

I am SLOW BEAR. With this music I hope to make a better place of this world. Maybe, from time to time, it will make a difference for the good. When I became a solo artist in 2014, it proved one of the most liberating decisions I have ever made. I don’t know how I overcame the initial fright to start doing everything by myself, and I am very proud of the result, my debut album ‘Pale Morning Fades’. I play on my own but that doesn’t necessarily mean I make quiet or introspective music. I am a DIY artist. I feel that the original idea of DIY has faded with the generations, and we are now at a point where we can’t even imagine anymore what it used to stand for. Music that whirls up from underneath and from aside, puts itself outside the machinations of the market and values small scale, prompt expression, without mediation of publishers, accountants, A&R, influencers, government representa- tives or radio pluggers.

 

 

BÉNÉ KUSENDILA (BE)

Béné Kusendila’s poems have been published in various online magazines and also appear in printed literary journals. Sink!, her first short story, appeared in print in Rad Publishing’s “Wanderlust” issue (2017). She appeared as a surprise guest act at the International Brussels Poetry Fest & at the Conscienza Festival (2017). She made the 17 poets-strong longlist of the 2017 Cosmonauts Avenue Poetry Prize.Her debut collection, Sewn In Red published by Rad Press Publishing (2017), received 5 stars in its first professional review: “With numerous remarkable poems a part of Author Benedicte Kusendila’s, “Sewn in Red,” it is a challenge to say which one best epitomizes the Author’s talent and vision, but in sum, we must say that the smoothness and profundity of words easily make many of her poems timeless classics!” (Realistic Poetry International) Sewn In Red is available through Amazon, Béné can be found at this year’s Poetry Fest or, alternatively, through www.facebook.com/kusendila. “You’re only given a little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it.” (Robin Williams) yet “If your eyes hurt after you drink coffee, you have to take the spoon out of the cup.” (Norm Crosby)

m.o.t.o. (BE)

Moto is duo that initially started as a percussion band with roots in traditional Afro Cuban music. One member (Joy Voncken) used to sing in a church choir while the other (Dirk Elst) is a writer and poet, which seemed a perfect match for making ‘songs’ and performances. They started adding other instruments like guitar, piano, berimbao and field recordings. They did several gigs and performances which could be described as ‘old skool’ radio plays, mostly live and on location, e.g. Te wege (Ardooie), De Beis (AltHoeselt) Côté Tervuren at the expo Uncensored in the Royal Museum for Central Africa, De Brakke Grond (Amsterdam), Frans Masereel Centre (Kasterlee) and Sphinx cinema (Ghent).
