The 44th track on our free download compilation “Face The Beat: Session 4” (featuring 92 tracks) is by the Belgian intelligent electro act Llumen.
Llumen was formed somewhere in the first decade of the 21st century. Originally a 3-an project it was brought back to a 1-man project in 2009. Llumen is the more structured part of Pieter Coussement’s artistic output, who works as an artistic researcher at the Institute of Psychoacoustics and Electronic Music of the University of Ghent. In his daytime job he develops new user interfaces and instruments for electronic music, probably the wet dream of every electronic music musician. You can check out the band right here on Facebook.
The band released it’s first official album “The Memory Institute” in 2016 on Alfa Matrix preceded by the single “Cold In December”. And the track we present today comes from that EP in a remixed version by Simon Carter.
Since you’re here … … we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 2 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute.
