A BASEMENT SUITe
Tim Mariën uproots and challenges the musical experiences to which we as listeners are accustomed. Above all, the use of unconventional tunings makes one feel at first like a stranger in the music of the Belgian composer, then nevertheless "at home". Mariën, who appreciates a certain unruliness in the sonic material, detunes and reconstructs instruments in order to elicit unique microtonal scales and timbres from them.
This portrait album presents works by the Belgian that have been composed since 2001 and performed by the Tiptoe Company, by Ictus and by Ensemble Temporum. The modular composition A Basement Suite, the title of the album, invites us into Mariën's wonderland of acoustic sound ideas, which is as alienating as it is appealing.
