Flor De Mil Colores

Made the soundtrack for a beautiful short documentary film by Karen Vazquez.
“Flor de Mil Colores” premieres in Sphinx Cinema  Ghent (B) 23th of july .

Flor de Mil Colores is an intimistic portrait of Emiliana, a mother struggling to survive in a remote Bolivian mining camp 4896 meters above sea level. Life in Mina Argentina revolves around the exploitation of tin. Those who find ore, eat; those who don’t, don’t eat. The landscape, however, is like a magical painting, with the grey of the mountains running into the blue sky, while the miners march towards the darkness below and watch the drifting clouds. The film portrays a mother’s everyday struggle with her inhospitable dark surroundings to provide for her children.

Kleine Rode Eva

I made two different soundtracks ( through separate headphonelines for adults and children ) for one same performance by Stef De Paepe / De Maan.
” Kleine Rode Eva “ is an odd mix of multimedia / puppettheatre / installation / radioplay and handles the dissapearance of a girl.
The adult story is based on ” Kleine Eva uit de Kromme Bijlstraat ” from LP Boon, while the children’s version is loosely inspired by ” Roodkapje “.

I found some old party footage in the archives of my own family.
27 years later it turned out to be a great video for the Kaboom Karavan track ‘Lovzar’, from the album ” Hokus Fokus ” ( Miasmah Records 2013 )
