Digging through old harddiscs, I found tracks I made at the beginning of the millenium. At that time I was an aspiring DJ, together with my friend Edo Bouman of Vintage Voudou and like so many we caught the exotica bug. I remember working in a videostore in the evening, rummaging for records and drawing comics during the day and edit music at night in a program called Acid. This track is the mellowest and is like a sweet layered (space) cake.
Short story about the time I was witness to the 2011 uprising in Egypt, nominated for the Jan Hanlo essay prize in 2011 (time flies). It was subsequently published in the graphic novel special of the Belgian literary magazine DW B.
An impression of two walls of the gallery in Haarlem, Horizontaalvertikaal, where we showed panels from Stad van Klei, sketches and a lot of weird and wonderful items found in Cairo. There where many vintage film posters, film flyers, film clips and stills from classic to obscure Egyptian movies. Links were explained between them and Stad van Klei as there are a lot of references to be found in the book.
An illustration for filmmagazine Schokkend Nieuws about a screening of Jean Epstein's La Chute de Maison Usher. This amazing silent movie from 1928 is being shown with live music. The other painting was done for a new monthly horrorshow Cineville in Cinema De Uitkijk.
