We asked some of our residents and guests a list of their favourite releases, labels or covers during 2019. During the last 2 weeks of December we will post them here in our news section. Enjoy!

Resident: Mathilde Luijten 


Lieven Martens (Lieven Martens Moana, formerly Dolphins Into The Future) is a composer and observer. Through various recording techniques he creates a conceptual form of programme music that travels beyond the pure description.
Over the past few years he has been performing all over the globe. From Mexico City, to Tokyo, Niigata, Lisbon, Lecce, Honolulu, Brussels, et al.
Between 2009 and 2012 he released several albums under the Dolphins Into The Future moniker on various record labels (Not Not Fun, USA; Fonal, Finland; NNA Tapes, USA; et al).
His first LP under his birth name – titled “Music From The Guardhouse” – was produced by KRAAK (Belgium) in 2013. In 2015 he self-published a compilation of outtakes and sketches, produced on various formats (c.q. “Songs Of Gold, Incandescent”). In March 2017, “Idylls” came out on Pacific City Sound Visions (USA) in co-production with his own Edições CN. And in October 2017, the prolific EM Records from Japan released “Three Amazonian Essays”, a modern classical reinterpretation of the Spanish cult classic “Amazonia” by Finis Africae.
