Review | By Beach Sloth
Willem Sannen | Brussel Noord
Willem Sannen explores the amplification of the everyday routine on the voyeuristic field recordings of “Brussel Noord”. Over the course of the album a journey begins to emerge. Every single sound relates to something that hundreds of millions of people go through each day. Doubly refreshing is the way that Willem Sannen sequences these many elements together, from the lonely aspect of waking up to simply traveling amongst vast groups of strangers. Respect for the surroundings results in some particularly fine exploration of spacial acoustics. By far what ties the many pieces together is the sense of continuity that comes to define the album.
