JAN VAN DEN BROEKE: 'TIME AND DESIRE' album I EE TAPES EV20 I 07 OCTOBER 2022
Be prepared folks for an overwhelming journey on a sea of melancholy.
‘TIME AND DESIRE’ is a refined album containing Jan’s exquisite selection of 10 unpublished songs and cinematic tales (recorded 2006 - 2021) about memory, the journey through life, the passage of time, the constant craving, the burning desire, the pain, the courage and hope and… some soothing miracle moments.
Presented here are 9 tracks by JUNE11 and 1 by CANTO DE MUDO, in which – as we know Jan and his loyal friends - electronics, acoustics, samples and voices (including those of Drita Kotaji and Helena Legaz) meet and dissolve.
We get versatility and unity at the same time. We certainly hear echoes of ABSENT MUSIC and THE MISZ (Jan’s projects from the 1980’s), but we especially hear Jan and friends summarizing life and music, while completely blurring time. The 1980’s, the 2020’s – who cares?
The ‘TIME AND DESIRE’ LP comes in a graceful jacket (showing dreamy pinhole photos by artist Lysiane Bourdon), in a limited edition of 350 hand numbered copies on 180 gm vinyl. The album also includes an insert with liner notes, introducing the story behind each track.
First single 'La Vie Est Un Rêve' out on all platforms 12 AUGUST 2022
