de la Cour, Adam

About the work

All musical material was taken from the introductions of several Jacques Brel songs and distorted via a series of processes.

The percussionist hammers tacks into the sole of a shoe throughout in reference to what Brel may have ended up doing had he taken a different direction early on in life.
