Sequences is a manifest of soundscapes that are captured and created in the ether between light and darkness; where the light began, the darkness will end. In the ashes of this project, we find a sole member who will represent the sound of a hidden world, buried within ourselves.

NATHAN KELLY (AUS)
is a musician from Perth, Australia experimenting with archival sounds and digital magnetic fields https://soundcloud.com/qui_kuh
is a very apt moniker for this Belgian based experimental one-man band. Monnik wants to explore the boundaries of spiritual isolation, making his musical drones almost ascetic meditations. Layer upon layer of sounds and textures try to evoke an almost shamanistic - if not religious - atmosphere, in order to captivate the audience in an introspective hold.
FILIP GHEYSEN (B)
is a musician and audio artist, living and working in Ghent, Belgium, with a passion for sound and experimental music. Using only a tabletop guitar, effects and the occasional autoharp, he creates abstract droning soundscapes, stripped of all unnecessary elements, focussing solely on the timbre and tone of his instrument.
