Songs of Gold, Incandescent is a peephole in to a tropical past. Its cover on Bandcamp appears to depict the interior of a biodome and the photograph’s age is ominous – it could’ve been taken this year or it could’ve been taken 60 years ago.¬†Songs of Gold, Incandescent feels like a foreign world.¬†While all of these are rather dream-like, “Sweeten The Mango” is a standout for me with its inclusion of Hawaiian poetry sung by what I assume to be Hawaiian natives. On the album’s Bandcamp page, Dolphins Into The Future & Lieven Martens Moana write a story/synopsis for each track which I recommend giving a read. All of these were recorded over a four year span and by admission, there’s no explicit connecting theme/story. Use¬†Songs of Gold, Incandescent to give your Monday some life.

Recorded in Antwerp and on location, 2010 - 2014. Songs Of Gold are nine small portraits. Five tracks that where featured on the cassette versions PLUS four extra tracks for this vinyl version. Culled from compilations, limited run cassette releases, choreographies, and 7" singles. Some pieces were worked on for a length of time, others materialized in just about one take. All the songs are derived by an encounter with an object, a place or a person. Or by a combination of these. The events are translated into the work through the intermediary of symbolic sounds and notes. There is no thematic link between the compositions.
