"Now I Can Play Louder” staged the synergy between Brussels-based electric guitarist Dviance @dviance (1997, Lyon FR) and Brussels-based (musical and visual) artist Tristan Bründler @tristan.brundler (1996, Paris FR).
Dviance and Tristan share a curiosity on how intense transcendental feelings were fantasised upon by humans in all periods of history — but more specifically, how deep feelings of trance or ecstasy have been regarded as “the intervention of a divine being”. Through a dialogue between a billboard scenery and reverberant live music (downreaching electric guitar sounds and heavy haunting melodies) “Now I Can Play Louder” aimed to evoke an experience that drives a synchronal impression of the celestial.
The scenographic-music performances took place in the Old House of Kunsthal Ghent on 26th of May. The billboard was made by Tristan himself and covers an old fresco to serve as its protection from skaters that now populate the chapel-turned-skatepark.
