Trumpeter Wim Van Hasselt returns to NativeDSD Music with his fourth Stereo and Multichannel DSD release – Imaginary Mirror (DSD & DXD EP). His three earlier DSD Stereo & DSD Multichannel albums are linked below for your listening and purchasing convenience.
Equipped with a variety of trumpets, a ridiculous array of percussion instruments, and far too many electronics, Wim Van Hasselt (Trumpet) and Koen Plaetinck (Percussion and Electronics) combine to create an entirely new musical space. Presenting brand-new compositions and arrangements, they stretch the boundaries of classical music into a unique world of sounds and visuals, infused with traditional music, electro-underground, improvisation, and – above all – their own vivid personalities. Imaginary Mirror (DSD & DXD Edition) features works by Quartier, Part, Ravel, and Stockhausen.
What if dreaming became reality? The imaginary tangible? When living a fairy-tale the fantastic is the concrete. Inspired by the electrifying philosophy of the Surrealists from the roaring ’20s, they create a stage full of thoughts – in place of stories – their music literally surrounded by compelling visuals. The album is “A Stage Full of Thoughts”.
“The imaginary is what tends to become real.” – André Breton
They drown the audience in color and sound. You will not need a manual. The beauty of music. Nothing less, nothing more?
Note: We bring you 4 Tracks recorded in DXD by Jared Sacks, available as Stereo and Multichannel DXD & DSD Downloads. The other 9 tracks on the album “Imaginary Mirror” were recorded in PCM and are therefore not available at the NativeDSD Music Store.
