cd cover Aranis
Roqueforte (Homerecords)
cdRoots Code: hrbe-6068

The basic Aranis line-up is enriched with percussion. This gives the music a rough edge, but also adds a certain sens of beauty to it all. Dark melodies exchange with threatening rythms, raw solo pieces contrast with complex improvisations. With guest musicians David Kerman (percussion), Stefan Wellens (viola) and Pierre Chevalier (piano). For people who love classical, jazz, folk, world, film and rockmusic and everything in between, this ensemble offers adventure and confusion.

The musicians:
Liesbeth Lambrecht: violin
Marjolein Cools: accordion
Stijn Denys: guitar
Jana Arns: transverse flute
Joris Vanvinckenroye: contrabass & composition

More info:
Aranis is a group that devotes its time to creating and performing new, adventurous music.

The music is filled with contrasts and opposing themes. It's dark and light at the same time. It's beautiful and nasty, simple and complex. It has a personality of its own and nevertheless you can hear the influences from a multitude of different genres and styles. Never heard before and yet recognisable.

It is through the combination of these opposing themes and influences that emerges a contemporary and vibrant sort of music with a very unique character.

Aranis is composed of a core of five impassioned musicians. Depending on the project Aranis is working on, they call upon guest musicians to complete the sound. The main characteristics of their performances are a delicate and dynamic orchestration in which they constantly search for a fresh and lively rendition.

Press:

"Classical music and rock are growing towards one another. An evolution we can only be pleased about." Focus Knack

"Two violins, a double bass, accordion, piano, flute, guitar and almost no voice: it is quite clear that Aranis wants to make music you do not hear just anywhere." De Standaard

"Aranis does not care a hoot about labels and they're absolutely right" Folkroddels

"The secret of Aranis lies in the compelling fact that, as a listener, you are flung to and fro between the finesse of a classical concert and the excitement of a rock concert." De Tijd

Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
