Kobe Van Cauwenberghe: guitars, electronics, voice

Ghost Trance Music (GTM) is a set of compositions specifically designed to function as bridges between the different musical systems of American composer Anthony Braxton - between notation and improvisation - between the past, the present and the future. In Ghost Trance Solos, Kobe Van Cauwenberghe explores the full range of GTMs in order to generate what Braxton called 'a field of activity' in a solo context. Kobe has developed an intuitive setup using loops and live electronics so that several layers develop simultaneously and spontaneously.
