Poole Music / US / 2021
Happy to share with you my new work for Poole Music - a brandnew American recordlabel with albums scheduled by Francesco Cavaliere, James Ferraro, and more.
This LP has 3 works.
In the prelude i took up and rejected the proposal of writing the first existing piece of music for Monserrate palace - an unsung place of (touristic) beauty.
A mini-male suite of simple electronic and simulacra melodies.
And a larger piece that takes the Habu snake - an Okinawan pit viper - as its motive. It is a mosaic collection of questions.
"Poole Music is thrilled to announce its inaugural commission, the Habu, the latest full-length from Belgium’s Lieven Martens. For the better part of two decades, Martens has been expanding his Aloha-bedecked musical vision, transitioning from the basement tape environments of his Dolphins into the Future project to the rich compositional tapestries of more recent post-exotica modernist works.
