cd cover Didier Laloy
Belem and The MeKanics (Igloo, Belgium)
cdRoots Code: nax-igl287 Shipping February 15th, 2018

Belgian accordionist and composer Dirier Laloy has always been adventurous, and his new trio recording is no exception. Joining him are cellis Kathy Adam and Walter Hus, a creator of a 'mechanical orchestra' of acoustic organ pipes, accordions and percussion instruments, playing alone, controlled by Hus' computer and music software. Laloy describes it all as 'music with Fellinian flavors.'



Laloy writes:
BELEM & the MeKanics, is the new project of Didier Laloy.In BELEM & the MeKanics, the instrumentation Decap used is an orchestral ensemble of acoustic organ pipes, accordions and percussion instruments, playing alone, controlled by a computer and music software.

The organs, the “MeKanics” sing like little birds. The result is breath taking, Walter and Didier composed and arranged an unusual music, mixed between popular, contemporary, cinematographic music … a music with fellinian flavors!

The human and artistic encounter between Didier Laloy and Kathy Adam is today what Didier thinks he has created the strongest, a music that is both intimate, intense and bubbling. Needing to change course in every new creation, it seemed to him impossible not to pursue this adventure with Kathy Adam. He had to find a project that could surprise him while keeping the duo BELEM at the heart of creation. An image kept coming constantly: “a mechanical orchestra” to accompany BELEM!

His dream seemed difficult to realize, even impossible, until the day he met Walter Hus. Thanks to the return of automated organs in a High-Tech form, the dream of Didier was before his eyes, in the Walter Hus’s lab.

The result is a true jewel, at once surprising, unique in the world, refined and majestic !
