As a result of the collaboration of BOZAR and Belgian National Orchestra who realised the personal exhibition Cachivache Bugui Bugui from October 9 2018 till January 13 2019, and as a result of long term sonic collaboration with Thomas de Prins, who transcribed and distilled the entire composition for 14 musicians of the Belgian National Orchestra out of a series of previous performances with guitar and the 7 elements (glass, smoke, fire, white, wax, nature & vandalism), rewritten for 14 classical instruments (7 strings & 7 winds) we tuned in at BOZAR's Horta Hall on Friday evening October 19 2018 from 7pm till 7.15, harmoniously conducted by Filip Rathé (SPECTRA) under the supervision of friends and new strangers. Footage shot by Jan Van den Bosch and Alex Cordova who also dit the editing. Special thanks to Stockmans Art publishing for the booklet Songs of the Incomplete issue II specked with the music score of this rumble; BOZAR and their fantastic team; the musicians and artistic director Hans Waeghe of the Belgian National Orchestra; Galerie Nathalie Obadia Paris-Brussels, for their support in every possible way.

It took me a long time to get my driver’s licence. 10 years actually after the official date I was allowed to, but I got it, in the end. The first thing you do, even before finishing the lessons, is to buy the car you always wanted. I had an unexplainable fixation for a white Audi 80, 90’s model. I had to figure out where this came from and so I got one. Within the first week I had my temporary licence, the car was already tuned into a new work, a sculpture, a stage for a performance. On the car’s battery a converter serves electricity for a couple of green neon lights, a fog machine, an amplifier and PA system. Occasionally I perform with the car, and I drive it in and around the city daily.
The car drove to and played at : Ghent at SMAK (with Sarah Zeebroek on vox) , Duren at the Museum (with Niels Latomme on bass), Zulpzig (with Niels Latomme on bass) on the market square, Antwerp at AIR, Ghent at Hoet Bekaert Gallery, Aalst at netwerk
