Jazz, world music, classical music… where could we place Aurélia ? This music seems to belong to the musical no-man’s-land. A kind of ‘terra incognita’. An acoustic trio : a solo violin, a cocktail of percussion, a voice that can be ludic or as clear as crystal… This music can be sensitive and tender, complex but accessible, burlesque, wild en severe. “Festina Lente” has its own identity, its own clear line which – when we start thinking about it - isn’t that far from our ‘belgitude’. Maybe it’s all about the confrontation of a violist from Condroz, a guitarist from Gent and a percussionist from the Gaume? A meeting point for different kinds of influence? A place for sarcasm, surrealism and wildness? It’s up to you to find out.
Mental power feeds Aurélia: the automatic writing, unconscious and dreaming. The compositions integrate the typical Belgian sonorities: anger, sensitivity, sarcasm, curiosity, love for details… “Festina Lente” is unpredictable, unformatted, there is no straight line. While listening there is nobody to hold you hand; everyone has to find his or her own way through the melancholia of the alto violin, the schizophrenia of the voices, and the madness of the percussion. A never ending journey, full of surprises and discovery.
