Concert Tim Bowness + Anneke van Giersbergen, Cultuurpodium Boerderij, Zoetermeer
|Genre||Electronic / Synth / New Age|
|Omschrijving||How would the stars, nebulae and planets in the
cosmos sound like? It would become a life-long quest
of Belgium synthesist Patrick Kosmos (aka Patrick
Wille De Wael) who composed classic cosmic music from
the early ‘80s on. Purchasing his first synth around
1973 he started transcribing his thoughts and
feelings on space travel in music.
Creating his unique music at home was one thing,
playing and improvising it live-in-concert in special
places became the true challenge and passion for this
cosmic traveller. While improving his musical skills
Patrick was a roadie for various bands and a light
and sound engineer elsewhere.
In 1983 Patrick released his first cassette “Sherab
Trital Tunnel” and played his first concert in 1987,
the first in a long series. Many have fond memories
of his memorable performance at Dutch KLEM-dag 1988
in Best. Soon, lasers and an assortment of special
effects would accompany his spectacular live
performances such as “The Concert”. His sonic
paintings and electro-acoustic adventures through
sound, melody and emotion received lots of airplay
through Belgium’s radio programs “Muziek uit de
Kosmos” and “Maneuvers in het Donker”.
“Beam me up Scotty, I’m on the wrong planet” is one
of Patrick’s favorite quotes.
Covering up the brand names of his synths at concerts
was also common practice for Patrick as he had no
wish to do any promotion for the respective
manufacturers nor did he think one brand was better
than the other.
Around 2002, Patrick retreated as an electronic
musician and focused on easy-listening and chill-out
projects. Unfortunately, Patrick passed away on
February 2 2015, only 55 years old.
Together with Patrick`s brother Philip, Groove plans
to release his vast musical legacy. And the start is
"Monument", the live 1988 release from the
"Chronicals". Stunning music that has stand the test
of time more then brilliantly!! This is Patrick in
top form, detailed, full of passion, rich in sounds.
A unique Monument, the start of the return of the
"Cosmic Courier" !!|
