There are those who confirm and those who confront and never stop transforming. Karen Willems (previously) drummer with o.a , Zita Swoon Group, Jan Swerts, Novastar, Pascal Deweze , leader of Inwolves..collaborations with Aidan Baker, Erik Thielemans, Dirk Serries, BARST,.. firmly belongs to the latter category.
Music that fits for dark and desperate times.
Rooted in the kosmische Musik of the seventies, but also betraying connections to today’s recycling of analogue electronics and dynamic sound-painting, the music of Inwolves resides in a universe that is as ominous as it is electrifying, bringing together light and darkness, rhythm and texture, silence and movement.
Willems’ bold, multi-angle vision, which stays true to its ever-transforming nature and the organic interweaving of ideas, yet adds an urgency, cohesion and focus that allows the music to fluently skip from surprising intimacy and semi-industrial chaos to grand cinematic vistas.
Inwolves is the next step in a world of endless possibilities.
